Version 103.4 kB Works with Firefox 2.0 - 3.0a8

* Fixed memory leak (bug 17586) introduced in 0.6.
* Fixed accidental reversion of Bug 17196.
* Restarting the browser via the restart menu/button will no longer backup current session or close an autosave session. The reasoning behind this is that when the browser restarts it automatically recovers the current session so nothing will be lost. Basically from Session Manager's stand point the browser never restarted. This slightly speeds up restarting as Session Manager will no longer prompt you to save/restore sessions when restarting.
* Similarly if the browser crashes while an autosave session is open and the user chooses to restore the current browsing session or the autosave session (by name), Session Manager just continues where the user left off without saving the current state to the autosave file. In other words, crashing won't save the autosave session unless the user specifically load a different session on browser start after the crash. The crashed session is backed up as usual.
* Disabled Minefield 3.0a8's prompt asking if the user wants to save the current tab/window state on shutdown. Session Manager already saves these by default and can be set up to prompt if desired. The reasoning for this was that it was causing duplicate prompting on shutdown. If you want to re-enable this after uninstalling Session Manager, change the browser.warnOnQuit preference back to true.
* Some minor updates for Minefield 3.0a8 (no longer need to work around certain bugs in Minefield).

Version 0.6 103.4 kB Works with Firefox 2.0 - 3.0a8

* Added Autosave functionality (see homepage documentation)
* Changed append mode to append all tabs in all windows to the current window. Previously it would only append the tabs from the first window and then open the remaining windows.
* Added caching of closed window list which will dramatically cut down on the amount of disk access required when opening the closed tab/window list.
* Session Manager no longer changes the Firefox default of saving no POSTDATA in sessions to saving all POSTDATA. Session Manager now leaves the Firefox default in place. This can be changed back to the way it was in the Advanced Options menu, but read this link for the reasons why this may not be a good idea (one user ended up with a 100 MB session file). Text in forms on pages is still saved, only submitted text and data is no longer saved by default.
* hidden option to encrypt session data (see homepage evision history for details)
