Very Very good and useful addon.
Please update for v. 3.x
Please Update for FF 3.x
great add on but can you please update it for firefox 3 =(
Love this add-on.
I hacked the extension (changed the max compatible version) so you can use this link to install it.
this is my favorite extension but now it has stopped working with firefox 3.. someone please post an update for this on rapidshare. If you're the original author and reading this, please please won't you update this.. thanks.
I love this extension and I hope a version for FF3 will soon be available.
It has saved more searches than I can count.
An excellent add-on!!
I used this all the time on FF2, and I miss the functionality of it with FF3.
In fact, given how regularly FF3 is losing the option to save tabs on exit (something that only reappears after I restart in safe mode) this is an extension I'd welcome an update of.
It's great for when it crashes, but lately it seems that close browser and keep taps refuses to work properly, especially after a Firefox upgrade. I'm on 184.108.40.206 , for reference. Is it no longer compatible?
This extension works perfectly for me!
For a while, I used Opera as a primary browser solely for it's automatic session-saving.
But when I found this, I switched right back to Firefox. I noticed a lot of people are claiming that it causes graphical problems or only re-opens the window you were on when you closed it, but it re-opens everything for me.
I also love how the little button even blends in with my theme (PimpZilla). It's a great extension, keep up the development on it!
I use it all the time to reduce the amount of memory Firefox uses since it doesn't clean up after closing tabs (which I opened using the Coffee Cup add-on).
The only problem I have is that when I restart I lose part of the actual Firefox browser including the vertical slider and the EMM button is cutoff at the down arrow.
v2.0 on Firefox 2.0.11 only saves tabs in the window you are on. if you have multiple windows, the other windows' tabs are lost. It's great if you only use one window. Looking forward to a version that supports multiple windows.
Unfortunately, this extension doesn't work for me. It doesn't seem to do much of anything. When I ask it to save my tabs and close Firefox, and I open Firefox again...nothing. I would love to try a working version, because it's a wonderful idea.
v2.0 on firefox 2.0.6 only saves tabs in the window you are on. if you have multiple windows, the other windows are lost. so it's only useful if you only use one window.
I love this addon, the only problem I have fun into is when upgrading to FF 220.127.116.11 I had trouble and had to delete my addons and settings and start over. This used to work perfect every time, but now has not worked for me yet. This is a great addon and try it with your system, but I am just waiting for the next update for it.
A Firefox restarter. I love this community. I search for something I faintly wish exists and it's there! 3 in fact. But this one takes the cake, by having the two options I wanted included in its toolbar mounted button.
God knows how many times I've been forced going through a dozen of open tabs because I would lose my current session if I would close Firefox. The only option one had was to manually save all the tabs, and than open them at the next session. What a cruel world.
Thanks to this extension you can pick up your work, right were you left it! Love it. If you use profiles – as a certain reviewer that I happen to know uses – the usefulness of this extension becomes even more clear.
The only critic I have to give is about the ugly big button that the extension currently uses. I know it’s Beta, but God... It looks horribly; like some kind of genetic mutation of the Google logo.
Beta. I know.
Anyway, some alternative suggestions for the developer:
When the user closes Firefox there could be a small message box asking the user if he/she wants to:
1) Close without saving current tabs.
2) Close and save current tabs.
3) Restart Firefox.
And a option box that the user could check: "Do not ask again", "Remember my choice", or such. (This should not be applied to option 3; Firefox is great and all, but you do eventually want to shut down the browser at one time or later).
Just a suggestion. But I think it kicks "Big ugly box"-ass. My honest opinion.
Whatever you decide to do, your extension is still one of the most useful out there!
