I figured I'd try this since everyone seems to swear by it after having both the built-in and TabMixPlus' session managers fail me. With both of them, I had instances where there was no previous session saved, and the only way to recover it was to go into the sessionbackups folder and do it manually (a trick I unfortunately learned to late to save me when I lost a LOT of tabs from one session, requiring me to dig through about a month of history to recover). While I have yet to have that particular issue with Session Manager, I do have a different one: EVERY, SINGLE time, the most recent few tabs aren't included. I tried changing the backup frequency to every five minutes, but even then it still happens. In fact, it just happened and tabs I've had open for several hours wren't recovered. And it's not even like the browser is crashing which is causing an unexpected closing of the tabs; this is happening when I restart the browser. It's also not very clear about setting up backup of sessions. This is in Waterfox 56.1.0x64.
P.S. I'd much prefer mention this via the support site than in a review, but mozillazine won't let me register, because apparently the number of letters in Mozilla != 7 or seven, no matter how many times I try. Not to mention the complete failure of the site being http only, or the arbitrary 30-character password limit. I'd suggest using a proper site for feedback.
This is one of the best firefox extensions, Please, Mozille ppl, start working on it.
men este complemento es magnifico ojala lo actualizaras para quantum
alguien que actualice este plugin POR FAVOR!!!!!!!!
someone which made update of this PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks for that great add-on, it worked perfectly and the interface is nice.
Unfortunetely, it doesn't work any more with the new version of Firefox. Do you think you will you update your add-on ? It would be cool.
I'd love to have it in Opera as well. It's a shame that I can't use it now. It's been a life saver for so long...
Hi Michael, hi everyone,
Session Manager extension still works nicely with last version of Waterfox (56.1 at the time of this post, WF still support old-style XUL addons) and replaces gracefully the Tab Mix Plus session management feature that is buggy with FF 55+ and Waterfox. Those two extensions can work together with ease: Session Manager for session management and TMP for tabs management (TMP recognizes Session Manager activity and auto-disables its session management feature!).
But because none of these addons are compatible with FF 57+, I now use Waterfox for months (sorry Mozilla, I've been a very long time user of your products but with your Chrome-replicant FF you lost me)...
puedo guardar todas la pestañas y todas las ventanas en una sola sesión
Hey Firefox! Bring back Session Manager! NOW!!!
I have the newest version so i can't use this Addon :( but I can rate it. 5*
Love it. Used it for a very long time. Now not supported by Firefox anymore? A reason for me to change browser. PLEASE COME BACK !!! I NEED YOU
Amazing addon. Must have. Great job!
We need you bro! :(
WE NEED TO LET MOZILLA MANAGERS KNOW THAT WE NEED APIs FOR SESSION MANAGER: PLEASE DO THE SAME. Even if Session Manager will not be ported, there will APIs which could be used by other session managers, like Tab Session Manager, My Sessions, or Tab Mix Plus.
TO VOTE ON THESE APIs/BUGS, register on bugzilla.mozilla.org first. Then go to pages above and choose "Vote" in "Details" at the top of page. After choosing "Vote" button, next page will appear and you need to mark field next to "Vote for this bug" and then click onto "Change My Votes". Please, vote for the bugs, but do not comment on bugzilla.mozilla.org (unless you have specific information that will help to resolve the bug).
muy buen complemento lastima que no funcione.
Please Session Manager!!! come back!!! my life is not the same without you!!!
Actually, I downgraded to Firefox 56 just for this add-on.
If you want this add-on to come back just as I do, then ,please, send a feedback to the firefox team to do something about it. Just press "Alt", then Help>submitFeedback... and write about your love for this add-on and don't forget to add the next link at the end of the message.
If we all do this they will take it seriously and they will put it back to operation.
Please help with your Feedback!
Es confiable, flexible, versátil y poseroso mecanismo para mantener y guardar las pestañas abiertas. Ningún otro complemento lo ha igualado.
It works well. It is reliable
I am in agreement with all those who have been pleading for the return of Session Manager in the newest versions of Firefox. We are told that it is impossible to upgrade Session Manager due to code changes. But we are not told WHY. I mean, is it that you don't know how to work with the new code, or you just don't WANT to?
Or is there just some intrinsic feature of the newest Firefox that prevents any type of session managing? But if that were the case, there wouldn't be an alternative being suggested: Tab Session Manager. I have been using that and it SUCKS. Big time. Why can't Tab Session Manager have all the features that Session Manager did? Why can't we save the different SIZES of our windows within a single session, instead of all the windows coming back up in the exact same size? What's even worse is when a session I manually saved myself doesn't even come back up! Or a tab that wasn't even in the session shows up. Or sessions come up TWICE so I have double the number of windows!!! Or maybe not even double.... only SOME of the windows are opened twice.
Tab Session Manager is driving me bonkers and it SUCKS. Oh, did I already say that? Or..... maybe it's Firefox itself that is the culprit? I'm not at all sure that the newest version has been an improvement! I WANT SESSION MANAGER BACK, or I want at LEAST a new plugin that works exactly the same way.
Please.... Developer of Session Manager..... please tell us WHY you will not be able to create a new version that can be used with the new Firefox. It's not even possible? Or you don't WANT to? If you don't WANT to, why not find somebody who WILL?
(By the way, my five-star review is based on the OLD version of Session Manager that I loved. I'm totally pissed that it doesn't work anymore.)
Best Session Manager for any browser. I arranged my Firefox usage completely around this plugin. For each type of work I load the appropriate session and if something changes the session will automatically update. I have *hundreds* of sessions saved, each dedicated to one particular area of study, work project or just general area of interest. I switched back to FF56 and I will stay with that version until there is a Session Manager for a later FF version or for another browser.
Absolutely gutted it's gone. A fantastic add-on that never failed me. Trying desperately to get back the previous Firefox version.
Очень удобное расширение и очень удобный интерфейс. Очень жаль, что оно не работает с последними версиями Мозиллы.
This is the add-on I relied on more than any other when it was supported. I want it back ASAP.
It was one of the best extensions for Firefox version <57 !
Thank you so much for saving my marriage so many times lol (after Firefox crashed and all my wife's tabs were lost) !
Definitely the best browsing session manager I have ever had.
I switched back to older FF versions just to keep my sessions.
Well worth updating for compatibility with new FF versions.
Would be happy to pay for it.
