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?

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.

LOVE THIS ONE Rated 5 out of 5 stars

LOVE this addon has saved me tons of trouble trying to remember what tabs i have open, hard to do when you have 10+.

Only problem is getting to work initially as it sometimes conflicts with tab mix plus but not to hard to fix

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.

I've been using Session Manager 0.6.7.4 on WinXP & OSX for quite some time without any problems ... a terrific addon!
Then all of a sudden yesterday or today Session Manager stopped working correctly the same way on BOTH systems! I cannot get Save Session to appear whether hitting the toolbar icon, or going through the menu in the icon or Tools. Also, Delete Sessions does not popup anything.

OSX was at Firefox 3.6.3, while WinXP was at Firefox 3.5.x; I've since updated the latter to 3.6.3 with no change.

At the same time this happened Tree Style Tab also stopped working on both (couldn't expand/collapse trees) ... but I was able to get it going again by using some different settings.

Any idea what could be going on here?

Good session manager Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I used to used it on previous version of Firefox and Windows XP, however, since I've upgraded to Windows 7 and installed the newest version of Firefox it just does not work at all! However, I believe it might be a problem with the add-on and it will get repaired by the developers and Session Manager will again become one of my favourite add-ons on Firefox!
