Version 0.7.6.1.1-signed 473.1 kB Works with Firefox 3.6 and later, SeaMonkey 2.1 and later

Fixed issue where Session Manager submenu was missing on Firefox for Mac

Version 0.7.6.1-signed 473.1 kB Works with Firefox 3.6 and later, SeaMonkey 2.1 and later

  • Additions:
    • Added the do_not_color_toolbar_button hidden, logging_to_console, update_message and allowNamedReplace hidden preferences to options window.
    • Added option to not overwrite app tabs when loading sessions. This does not apply when loading the previous browsing or crashed session at startup since the app tabs are already in those sessions. Be careful using this as it could result in the app tab duplicating if loaded session contains the same app tab.
    • Added option to hide icon from menu item in tools and app menu.
    • Added name and url of last closed tab to undo toolbar button.
    • Added Greek and Slovenian locales
  • Fixes:
    • Fixed issue that could prevent the "Save and restore at startup" button from appearing at shutdown.
    • Fixed issue where open window sessions at the time of a crash would not be saved if user chose to not restore the crashed session.
    • Update options window if preferences are changed while window is open.
    • Changed the tools and app menu icon so it should display correctly in OS X.
    • Fixed potential issue that could occur when importing settings saved under an older version of Session Manager.
    • When appending tabs to a window, attempt to keep tab grouping. Might not always work since Firefox's grouping functionality doesn't use session data.
    • Fix for potential compatibility issue with Firefox 7. The change to Firefox 7 might be reverted before it is released, but I fixed my code anyway.
    • Update toolbar button tooltips when leaving tab groups UI.
    • When opening multiple windows at startup (for example clicking a link in another program), don't overwrite the additional windows when loading a session at startup.
    • Restore autosave and window sessions loaded from previous browsing session at startup.
    • Prevent multiple session prompts from displaying at startup.
    • Fixed issue where session backup files may not be removed if user chooses to not save any backup files.
  • Changes:
    • Updated text in save window to indicate that right clicking on an existing session will display that session's contents.
    • When deleting part of a session show different confirmation prompt then when deleting entire session.
    • Updated text in delete window to indicate that individual tabs can be deleted from sessions.
    • Moved all menu items that open the Session Manager session window to a sub-group. In Firefox 4 and up, clicking the group name itself opens the load window.
    • Attempt to use safe file writing at all times, if possible. This should prevent any possibility of corrupting existing sessions when overwriting them.
  • Removed:
    • Removed support for Firefox 3.5 and SeaMonkey 2.0. APIs that are required by Session Manager are not in these versions and they aren't supported by Mozilla any way.
    • Removed Cache Fixer since it tends to corrupt the cache file data which can cause Firefox to crash. See Firefox bug 529733, specifically comment 37.

Version 0.7.6pre20110727 473.1 kB Works with Firefox 3.6 and later, SeaMonkey 2.1 and later

Version 0.7.6pre20110725 473.1 kB Works with Firefox 3.6 and later, SeaMonkey 2.1 and later

  • Added slight delay to search, so that searching doesn't occur constantly when user is typing. This is more efficient.
  • Change search to allow use of regular expressions and also search group names.
  • Removed unneeded toolbar CSS files since toolbar changes for Firefox 4 were removed at last second.

Version 0.7.6pre20110721 474.1 kB Works with Firefox 3.6 and later, SeaMonkey 2.1 and later

  • Fixed potential issue which could allow user to create a session with the same name as an existing sessions.
  • Allow user to search for sessions by session name in the session window.

Version 0.7.6pre20110708 472.1 kB Works with Firefox 3.6 and later, SeaMonkey 2.1 and later

  • Log locale info
  • Fixed issue that caused session window to not open correctly when saving a session with the same default name as an existing session and the "Double clicking an existing session overwrites the session and" setting is set to "replaces the existing session name with the one in the text box".
  • Changed "preserve app tab" default setting to false to prevent jarring changes when user updates.

Version 0.7.6pre20110706 474.1 kB Works with Firefox 3.6 and later, SeaMonkey 2.1 and later

  • Additions:

    • Changed the tools and app menu icon so it should display correctly in OS X.
    • When importing settings from an older version of Session Manager, correct settings based on version number and restore current version number.
    • When appending tabs to a window, attempt to keep tab grouping. Might not always work since Firefox's grouping functionality doesn't use session data.
    • Switched from nsiJSON to JSON since nsiJSON is being removed in Firefox 8 and JSON works fine in Firefox 3.6 and up.
    • Update toolbar button tooltips when leaving tab groups UI.

Notes for 0.7



    • Additions:


      • Compatible with Firefox 4.0

      • Added Session Manager menu to Firefox 4.0 application menu. Currently hidden if user sets to hide toolbar menu.

      • Added Deleted sessions sub-menu and settings. Clicking a session in the deleted group will restore the session. The session can be permanently deleted by right clicking on it and selecting delete. The length of time that deleted sessions are kept is controllable by an option in the "General -> Saving & Restoring" options.

      • Added ability to change "browser.sessionstore.max_concurrent_tabs" setting in Firefox 4. This setting controls how many tabs to load simultaneously in Firefox 4.

      • Added URL to tooltip for closed tabs.

      • Added color coding of the Session Manager toolbar button to tell if there is a window session and/or auto-session loaded: <span style="color:yellow;">yellow</span> for window sessions, <span style="color:aqua;">aqua</span> for window sessions and <span style="color:lawngreen;">lawngreen</span> for both. This can be disabled by setting the extensions.{1280606b-2510-4fe0-97ef-9b5a22eafe30}.do_not_color_toolbar_button hidden preference to true.

      • Added tooltip to Session Manager toolbar button that lists the current active window and autosave sesisons.

      • If the preference is set, active session names are now listed in the titlebar in Firefox 4 when menu toolbar is hidden, unless the window is maximized such that tabs are displayed in the titlebar.

      • Added new larger icons for Firefox 4 add-ons menu.

      • Added icon to Session Manager menu in tools and application menu.

      • Added option to not log to console when logging is enabled - extensions.{1280606b-2510-4fe0-97ef-9b5a22eafe30}.logging_to_console


    • Changes:


      • If the users selects to use their own session folder, use that folder to store the session files instead of creating a "sessions" folder in that folder.

      • Don't backup sessions with no windows in them. This prevents creating corrupted session files, but doesn't fix underlying issue with Firefox returning empty sessions.

      • If a session has no session windows or tabs in it but does have closed window data, restore the closed window. This works around an issue that sometimes occurs at shutdown, where the active window in a backup session is changed into a closed window.

      • Changes to show URL of closed tabs in Awesome bar in Firefox 4. Also now works with Status-4 Evar add-on.

      • Show the "All Files" filter when loading settings file.

      • Move Clear Windows menu item before Clear Tabs menu item to match order of closed windows and tabs.

      • Sessions with nothing but closed windows are no longer considered empty. They will be backed up.


    • Fixes:


      • Fixed major problem when asynchronously reading session files containing Unicode, which would cause Unicode characters to be replaced with garbage characters. Asynchronously reading was introduce in 0.6.9 for enabling/disabling encryption, saving crashed window sessions and doing the one time conversion of Firefox 3 formatted sessions to the new format. Unfortunately there is no way to fix sessions that ended up with garbage characters in them.

      • Prevent creating a backup session if the browser window is never displayed (i.e. no session is created).

      • Fixed error that caused the clear undo tabs, windows, all prompt from displaying even if user chose not to display them again.

      • Prevent browser windows in sessions from loading off screen.

      • Fix possible cause of exception when trying to move corrupted session to corrupted folder.

      • When appending to an auto-save session, don't make the auto-save session active as doing so can result it the session being overwritten instead of appended to.

      • When permanently enabling Private Browsing mode, backup the current session regardless if the setting to saved replaced sessions is set or not.

      • Fixed issue where Session Manager would fail to move corrupt sessions to the corrupt sessions folder and continue to put up errors instead.

      • Switching a loaded auto or window session's group will now preserve the group when the session is auto-saved.

      • Fixed issue with auto and window sessions losing group and stored resolution if no value is entered for time when saved.

      • Fixed issue with name "Session Manager" showing as default name when right clicking and changing group of sessions in tools menu.

      • Work around bug 629291 - Issue with trying to overwrite files with unicode characters creating a new file with unicode characters being replaced by underscores.


    • Removals:


      • Removed compatibility with Firefox 3.0.x. It's old, time to upgrade.

Version 0.6.9.2 390.1 kB Works with Firefox 3.0 - 4.0b8pre, SeaMonkey 2.0 - 2.1b2

  • Fixed the reload tab functionality which broke in 0.6.9.1.

  • Fixed issue which resulted in duplicated or missing sessions being displayed in the Session window. This was a display issue only.

Version 0.6.9.2pre 390.1 kB Works with Firefox 3.0 - 4.0b8pre, SeaMonkey 2.0 - 2.1b2

  • Fixed the reload tab functionality which broke in 0.6.9.1.

  • Fixed issue which resulted in duplicated or missing sessions being displayed in the Session window. This was a display issue only.

Version 0.6.9.1 390.1 kB Works with Firefox 3.0 - 4.0b8pre, SeaMonkey 2.0 - 2.1b2

  • When importing Session Manager settings, some imported settings weren't being reflected in the options window. This has been corrected.

  • Sessions with no tabs were being marked as corrupted when they are no longer considered so. Zero tab sessions were being created in Firefox 4 (Minefield), but that should no longer occur in the latest nightlies. It can still happen in beta 7 though.

  • Session Manager 0.6.9 had a bug when reading sessions in certain cases where it wasn't converting the OS newline character to the internally used 0x000a character. This was causing sessions that were converted from Firefox 3 format to become corrupted and disappear. This issue has been fixed and any corrupted sessions will automatically be fixed after 0.6.9.1 is installed so they will be visible again.

  • Fixed issue with closed tab and window list only showing one entry when that list was not shown in a submenu. Thanks to Alan Baxter.

Version 0.6.9 389.1 kB Works with Firefox 3.0 - 4.0b8pre, SeaMonkey 2.0 - 2.1b2

  • Additions:

  • Allow user to choose tabs to save for "Save Window".

  • Added a "Keep Session Manager window open" check box and only keep the session manager window open if it's checked. The check box is "sticky", so it will default to whatever it was last time the window closed.

  • Added option to use Firefox's crash prompt.

  • Added a reset warning option to reset the warnings that people chose to "not show again".

  • Added ability to import/export settings.

  • Added support for hot keys. These can be set in the General options preference. Hot keys are required to use at least one modifier if CTRL is used, otherwise more than one modifier is required. Note that hot keys may not work if the hot key sequence is already being used by the browser or other add-ons. Session Manager has no way of checking for this so there won't be any warnings if you enter a hot key that's already in use.

  • Added separate clear closed tabs and clear closed windows menu items. They are only visible if there are both closed tabs and closed windows in the closed list.

  • Added indicator in windows/tabs tree to show which tabs are hidden and what groups they are in. Only works in Firefox 4.0b4 and up.

  • Show warning colors (yellow) and tooltip if permanent private browsing mode is enabled and user wants to backup sessions and/or restore the previous browsing session. Neither will work in permanent private browsing mode.

  • Added warning alert that saving and backing up sessions won't work if permanent private browsing mode is enabled. This can be disabled.

  • Allow restoring closed tabs by middle clicking on them. This will leave the menu closed menu open.

  • Show what tabs are hidden and in what groups (if any) in Firefox 4.0b4 and higher since with Tab Candy tabs may not be visible, but will still be saved.

  • Added option to save backups on browser restart. This was previously a hidden preference.

  • Allow user to use non-ASCII characters when saving. This allows filenames with non-English characters.

Changes:
  • Removed all background thread processing from the add-on to prevent crashes. Use asynchronous read (all) and writes (Firefox 3.6 and up) are now used instead. This only affects the "change encryption" and "save crashed window session" processing.

  • Firefox 4 currently has a tendency to not return valid session data at shutdown so work around this by storing session data at quit-application-granted. This prevents backup and auto-save sessions from being corrupted when existing the browser using File->Exit.

  • Lessen the restrictions used to determine if a session is marked as corrupted. Sessions with no tabs are now considered "okay" since Firefox 4 can generate them currently. Though they probably aren't that useful.

  • Checking the "reload" option now causes Session Manager to bypass the browser cache on a load instead of actually doing a reload. This allows the features to work with the new cascading tab loading features in Minefield. It's also faster.

  • Hide the option to clear closed tabs in SeaMonkey 2.0.x since it doesn't work in that version.

  • Don't show use browser crash prompt in Firefox 3.0 since it doesn't work there.

Fixes:
  • Fix for option to restore a closed tab using middle click not working in Minefield.

  • Fixed loading session at startup in Minefield.

  • Fixed issue with save prompt, where group name wouldn't clear when clicking on an existing session in a group and then typing in a different session name.

  • Fixed bug where saving window sessions when resuming from a crash would not work if encryption was enabled.

  • Fixed bug in "Cache Fixer" that was causing it not to work.

  • Locales now included

  • Disallow any command keys that don't have at least one or more modifiers. If only 1 modifier, only allow CTRL.

  • Allow using Tab, shift-tab, esacpe, enter/return and F1 in keyboard options pane.

  • Disable accesskey, and buttons when user presses ALT in keyboard options to prevent triggering of other buttons or jumping fields.

  • Fix error when close window in SeaMonkey.

  • Checking the "reload" option now causes Session Manager to bypass the browser cache on a load instead of actually doing a reload. This allows the features to work with the new cascading tab loading features in Minefield. It's also faster.

  • Hide the option to clear closed tabs in SeaMonkey 2.0.x since it doesn't work in that version.

  • Fix clearing all closed tabs at once under SeaMonkey 2.1 beta.

# Firefox 4 currently has a tendency to not return valid session data at shutdown so work around this by storing session data at quit-application-granted. This prevents backup and auto-save sessions from being corrupted when existing the browser using File->Exit.

# Lessen the restrictions used to determine if a session is marked as corrupted. Sessions with no tabs are now considered "okay" since Firefox 4 can generate them currently. Though they probably aren't that useful.
