Not working with Firefox 24 Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Like for the version 20, it shows in the addons list but nowhere else (neither in Session Manager options, like the pics suggest.) Useless to install. Please take it off from the addons list for newer versions of Firefox, or at least write your requirements with big, red, clear letters. Installing an old Session Manager is not an option.
still working with older session manager version Rated 5 out of 5 stars
although this add-on may be close to 2 years old and quite useless with the current version of session manager, it will still work if you use session manager version 0.7.9.3pre121218 ...been using it for quite awhile with no problems ...here's a link to the working session manager version, for those interested: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/session-manager/versions/?page=2#version-0.7.9.3pre121218
Not Working in Firefox Ver. 20 Rated 1 out of 5 stars
This is a useless add-on. I am using version 20 and it showed up in my add-on list but I can not access it anywhere. It doesn't show up on the Session Manager Options screen.
Doesn't work Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Sessions manager is a great tool. Unfortunately, Sessions Manager Export Tool just doesn't work for me. My Firefox version is 19.0.2. Too bad because it would really be helpful.So I wouldn't give it any stars if I didn't have to fill in the field.
Works Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Originally at tad klunky, but very functional.
Now: at least as functional, and less klunky.
Kudos Terence ... nice craft / good work.
p.s. just got "Save Sessions" ... looking forward to something like a kruft-free bookmark file

It doesn't export anything or create any files. The progress bar just rotates with current versions of FF & SM.

Seems to work fine, right until you click on "Export HTML" then the wait bar does its thing with "Working" just below it. I left it for up to 30 minutes with no discernible output. Tried exporting with different options over different sessions.
I am using Session Manager 0.7.9.4 and the latest version of the Export tool 0.2 (I believe) with Firefox 18.0, Win7 x64.
Great promise if I could get it to work.
Needs Import Function Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Thanks for this very useful add-on. However, without an import function, it's value is diminished somewhat.
The Export Tool creates a basic HTML file with links under each .session file name. However, it doesn't allow for exporting an individual session or group of sessions as far as I could tell.
The exported file can be opened from Firefox as an HTML file, and then, using the "Open Link in New Tab" option, the individual sessions can be manually reconstructed, and then saved to another Firefox session directory. This is helpful, but a little complicated for routine use.
Using the "Open Session Folder" option from Session Manager (0.7.9) does not appear to provide a way to click on an individual .session file and automatically perform the equivalent of a "Load Session", as one would reasonably expect. If Session Manager provided an open-file type dialog (wherein the meaning of "open" was defined as "open and load an existing .session file" it would be a big improvement.
Ideally, if Session Manager allowed the user to designate an external "named session folder", and included a "Save Session As" option which defaulted to this common folder, groups of users could easily share & load named sessions, without modifying or interfering with their private session repository.
This is a very useful tool, but would benefit significantly from a few simple extensions of it's functionality.

1) It was not writed backup of a lost session before I restart Firefox - so, not only the session was lost, but "bookmarks" of tabs too... So, I lost all latest tabs. May be the problem is memory leaks of Firefox, but you should alert if bookmarks was not saved.
2) There is the problem with encoding of non-english names (page titles) of bookmarks. I'm trying to change character encoding in FireFox & in IE to UTF-8, but it was not helping... We have a garbage instead of page titles in the names of bookmarks.

How do we import the saved session back into session manager ?
I think it would be easier to just move the .session files between profiles. Choose "Open Session Folder" under the "Session Manager" menu to get to the .session files.
Great tool, needs a bit of refinement. Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I think this tool is very promising, seems to work fine in 9.0.1 without any major installation issues. I think some possible improvements could be:
- Import function, or some form of cross browser integration, where you can export a session from browser X to browser Y, either via a file export, or copy/paste function.
- A full integration into the session manager tool would be very useful as well.
All in all however, this is a very useful tool and has a ton of potential, keep up the great work!
Great! A way to organize session data! Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Thankyou Terence Caesar. Thankyou! A world of urls arise from the dead-end data format of the session graveyard to live again at last... To have this in this simple form is very useful. A toolbar button for this might be handy at some point. Works great in FF7.0.1 (palemoon Windows optimized build).
Does not work on Firefox 8.0.1 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I am not seeing this error in 8.01. Which versions of this extension and Session Manager are you using?
