- by Firefox user 15091187, a year agoRated 5 out of 5The verbiage of the 4 settings isn't super-intuitive, but considering that this is the only session keeper app I tried across 4 different web browsers that actually worked, that's totally forgivable.
-- Make sure that after you create a Session rule set, you either refresh your target URL or navigate away and back to it, then the session keeper will start working
-- If you pretty much never want to stop it while your browser is open, pick some garbage news link that you'll never visit again as the Stop session URL
--the URL to Ping setting will probably be the same URL as the Start Session URL two steps above
--How often to ping? I put the same number of minutes in both fields. Not sure if it's the best thing to do, but it seems to work.
--I suggest that you check Show Notifications the first couple times you try to use this and set the "How often to ping.." minutes to 2 minutes, just so you can get some fairly quick reassurance over whether or not it's working.
-- Remember Changes -- that's the same thing as a Save button. If you look in the Saved Sessions drop down menu at the top of the page, you'll see what you just saved. that's when you want to refresh or revisit your target URL.
--Best of Luck!
- by Cetiner, 2 years agoRated 5 out of 5Simple & Easy in using. A great Addon from the programmers!! Just installing, configuring and the session never end. Just need to click on OPTIONS and than filling out the forms, back to the website and making an reload of it - and the addon starts to work !
- by jagman, 2 years agoRated 1 out of 5I have no idea about this "URL" thing. What I was hoping for was the old "SESSION MANAGER" (Before ver 60 obsoleted it) to SAVE MY "TABS/BOOKMARKS..." when Windows requires a reboot, system crashes, have to go to work... or to just SAVE my tabs/sessions and reload when you come back and log on.
And to reload all my tabs when was able to log back on. It is hard to belief someone has not created a replacement for "SESSION MANAGER" To simply save your tabs if you have to reboot, logoff your PC, etc. This should be a STD FEATURE OF FIREFOX.
- by ^dj^, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5Set up sites to always keep alive (like some webapp at work that always logs you out) or keep some site alive at the click of a button in the browser's tool bar. And it actually works!
- by Firefox user 13366974, 3 years agoRated 1 out of 5I tried to program this app to keep the session on one website, but couldn't do it. Not user friendly or intuitive at all.
I'll stick with the original Session Keeper app, even though it only allows one session.
- by Firefox user 13100814, 3 years agoRated 2 out of 5Hey.. i am using it for a stock market trading site.. which would be similar to any bank sites... firstly it doesnt really work.. and i keep getting logged out every 5 mins.

- by wistar, 6 years agoRated 4 out of 5A couple of sites (Experian's AutoCheck, for example) appear to be able to look for a consistently spaced ping and log the user out. I'd like to see the ability to specify a randomness in the ping time, say, x minutes plus/minus n minute(s).
- by Firefox user 10516296, 7 years agoRated 3 out of 5It is not possible to have both disabled at the same time. If the regex checkbox is disabled, the notification checkbox is enabled after saving and vice versa.
- by Hugh, 7 years agoRated 5 out of 5I found mSession Keeper after downloading and trying Session Keeper. I was very disappointed that it could only keep one session alive at a time. I searched for "multiple session keeper" and found this. It does exactly what it says: prevents websites from automatically logging me off after periods of inactivity.
