One Of My Favorite Add-ons Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This has been one of my favorite add-ons because I could have access to all the links in my prior session without overwhelming my tab-bar. It's like a backup of the prior session with a reminder list of what you may have forgotten you were looking into. I don't have the java/chrome skills to troubleshoot what Mozilla broke, but if I did, I'd keep this going. I would like to encourage the author to reconsider his decision to not maintain this very useful add-on. If I had more skills with java and chrome, I'd help out. Regardless, my thanks to the author for having created and shared Select Tabs and Restore.

Does not work with Firefox 29.0
Works great in Firefox 24 Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Just thought I'd clear the waters and say this plugin still works dandy in Firefox 24, use it all the time. It's real convenient to be able to pick what tabs to restore before you restore them, weed out the unneeded tabs.
For those of you using the Walnut wood theme below:
.... I've found two workarounds to the problem of the checkmarks beside the pages to be restored being invisible. Either click on them and keep track what you clicked on, as they still work (just invisible). Or, downgrade to "Select Tabs to Restore version 1.0", the checkmarks work there. (any chance on getting this niggle fixed?........:^)
Great add-on, keep up the good work!
Epically sucks Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Restores 1 out of 3 times.
Useful. Some enhancements possible? Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I like this, far better than the strangely bijoux default.
It has just been useful after about:sessionrestore broke in FF19.0 for Mint (bug/835109); it still works where the default failed.
But not initially, because I had version 1.1 installed, and was not offered as update by the re-grade compatibility process. Another problem for FF?
If I might suggest an enhancement, though it may be too much to code:
Often FF crashes
Often FF crashes because of a recent web-page (more precisely, because of the web-page it is most recently processing)
It would therefore be useful - optionally - to be able to see a list of pages in (reverse) load order rather than window/tab sequence, the better to identify & remove the putative culprit (which is otherwise buried in the midst of all else).
Another thing that might be useful would be the ability to call up this recovery page for a second bite at restring more pages.
One can do this with about:sessiorestore, but it's not so clear how to do it with the enhanced page.
Even more useful if that were added to the History or Tools menu.
breaks after ff updates itself Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Choice is power! Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Would be perfect if it also worked when going from Private Browsing mode to regular browsing mode; will change my rating to 5 stars when that happens.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1).
