For sure a useful thing. But way too complicated to edit saved sessions. Did not find out how to remove a tab from a session. That software gives me a headache.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.6.8.3). 

Use delete

You can remove tabs from a session by choosing delete and then selecting the tabs you want to remove.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Session Manager! I feel it deserves WAY more than 5 stars! It's one of my favorite add-ons that I use every day. I wish it came as a BUILT-IN feature.

THANK YOU SO MUCH from a longtime Firefox user and major taboholic. Your add-on has made web surfing so much easier now that I can save all my tabs and reopen them at another time (which is totally awesome).

REQUESTED FEATURES:
- Option to edit and MERGE windows into A SINGLE WINDOW in a multi-window session, both BEFORE beginning a new session (that is, when it autostarts with Firefox and prompts you to select a session), as well as DURING an active session (so you can merge two or more windows into just one window as you're browsing)
- Option to SAVE & EXPORT selected links from sessions as an HTML file with live links like the My Portal add-on, which creates a live web page of the links in your bookmark hierarchy. My Portal add-on: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1217
- Option to SAVE & EXPORT selected links from sessions and paste them to the clipboard or to an MS Word document/Notepad text file
- Make the files in the sessions folder readable and editable without needing to have Firefox open (that is, to be able to open, read, and edit files in another program like MS Word/Notepad)
- Option to also delete tabs prior to opening a session, not just to choose which tabs you want to open
- Option to ask and confirm upon browser shutdown: 1) "Please select which tabs you want to keep for this session", and 2) Do you want to merge any of your open windows? If yes, please select the windows and click merge."

I have only one small bug/issue to report: Lately, whenever I start Firefox, SM autostarts as well and asks me to choose a session to open the browser window--the problem is that I UNselected the option to prompt me for a session to start Firefox with so I don't know why this keeps happening.

Also, since SM is autoloading as part of the Firefox startup process, it's causing Firefox to eat up a TON of my computer's active memory, usually more than 100,000K. Basically, it's making Firefox freeze as it's starting or it makes the cooling fan run really loudly because it's starting to overheat.

Very good add-on only a bit complicated. The session manager should be integrated as sidebar.

Thanks!

Tab Mix Plus provides a Session Manager that permits saving all Ffx windows that are opened for or in a particular Ffx user profile, as well as for saving only the tabs of an active Ffx window. TMP also provides a menu for opening closed tabs; and much more.

BUT, and as far as I'm aware for now, TMP's SM doesn't permit saving and accumulating more than two session files. Maybe it does and to cause it to do this requires using the SM menu in the Ffx Tools menu, instead of only saving to save a session when Ffx is being closed. While I've been using TMP's session saver instead of Ffx's since having installed TMP, I've only been doing session saves when closing down Ffx. That doesn't permit having more than two sessions saved and if I'm not mistaken, then there are only two to choose from when there's been a Ffx crash. Perhaps using TMP's SM in the Tools menu does permit saving more session files for the user to be able to select from more than only two when starting up Ffx, but I'll have to try this out to find out.

Re. Ffx crashes:

Restoring sessions from crashed Ffx sessions has been no problem for me ever since I switched from Ffx 2.20 to 3.3.

Conclusion:

Based on the images provided in the install page for your Session Manager add-on, it looks very interesting and a must to try it. So I just installed it and will check it out.

Some of the images show that your add-on permit saving and accumulating as many sessions and windows as a user wishes and this is a feature that will be very useful to me. It's been often frustrating to be lacking this feature.

Great idea you had with this add-on and I see MOSTLY high ratings for it from users here. It's clearly a MUST TRY.

Because I haven't yet restarted Ffx and it'll take some days before I can give an actual rating, but MOST users have already given 5 of 5 stars, I'll give it 5 for now and will later lower this if there's cause for me to do so.

Extension très pratique qui peut sauver beaucoup de travail et de temps.

It is definitely a must have. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I use it as extra backuptool just in case FF or my computer crashes and restoring the old session goes wrong. You want to reopen your current session weeks, months or even years later, for what reason ever? Here you go. And it's a wonderful help, when you're abusing open tabs as temporal bookmarks/"wannaread"-reminders and you have to save them somehow.
As far as I know the gest session manager around for FF. (I can't tell if there is a better one. Never felt like looking for an alternative.)

***Now here's a little request aimed at the developer: It says, that it works with FF3.7a2pre. Now that FF3.7 or what*'s left off it has become FF4.0 and FF4.0b1 is out, how about checking, if it's compatible?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.6.8). 

FF4.0 compatibility

0.6.7.4 is not FF4.0 compatibility. The just submitted 0.6.8 is compatible with FF4.0. I expect it will be approved within a week or two, though it might take longer. If you're impatient you can install it now in the "All Versions" page.

Hi!

After a crash, I usually choose the 1st option in the list. But only now I perceive that option is not the last session :(((. Despite that I gave 5 stars xD. I wonder if it is possible to add a column to sort the sessions by date, and that column be the default. Another good thing would be a button to restore last session!

thx!

Changed to this when the tabmix session manager can only restore by replacing the existing tabs, (ie close the all open tabs and then open session.) This does not have this problem, and is working OK, but it does have one draw back, it does not remember which window my Firefox was opened last, it will only open in the main window of dual screen, which I don't usually use Firfox it. It's not a bit problem, but it does get annoying sometimes.

The other part I don't like is, (or it could be me unable to find the setting) it will not open firefox, and then ask me which session I want to open or I can click cancel, so it will not open session and go to my what I set as my default (where that be blank or home page)., again that's another option I enjoy from tabmix's session manager.

Updating from Firefox 3.6.2 to 3.6.3 broke this add-on. Adore this add-on.
FIXED per support site info - First FF popped up saying that the Java Deployment Toolkit 6.0.1.190.4 was buggy and set itself to Disable - which I did and restarted FF. Don't know if this has anything to do with problkem or fix, but I did it first. Then - Uninstalled Session Manager (It keeps all old saved sessions intact - i.e. they DON'T get deleted) - Restarted FF. Then reinstalled Session Manager 0.6.7.4 from the Mozilla Add-on site here, restarted FF again and - FIXED. All better now. Working just fine.

Fixed It !!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Updating from Firefox 3.6.2 to 3.6.3 broke this add-on. Can no longer save, delete or rename sessions no matter how I try. Get a brief hour glass - then nothing. Still able to load old saved sessions. Prepending or Appending Session name now broken too. FF not set to Private Browsing mode - yet above problems exist. Have adored this add-on for a long time.
