Session Manager will not restore prior session Rated 1 out of 5 stars
I regret that Session Manager, no matter what you do, will not allow you to set "Show my windows and tabs from last time" in the window where you are supposed to be able to do just that. If you do try to select that option, Session Manager will just switch it back to "Show my home page" when you hit "Apply" or "Ok".
As a result, Session Manager will never restore your tabs from last time if you close out of Firefox and come back, such as after a reboot.
I also am finding that, even if you tell Session Manager to make automatic backups of a session state, at some point Session Manager will switch that option to "off," and stop making automatic backups of your session.
Session Manager does not appear to do anything useful.
Easy to use Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Essential tool, should be implemented in the browser alongside bookmarks. Easy to use and does what it says. Thanks.
Is Session Manager compatible with 46.0.1 at all? Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I've had a few crashes while running FF 46.0.1 and restoring the tabs with Session Manager hasn't come up. Then I noticed that the add-on link in Tools(Menu toolbar option) disappeared. All the more after checking to Show my
windows and Tabs from last time in "When FF starts" it didn't work too. I'll be happy if the issue will be solved.
update: Solved in an hour

There are no better! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Really this is the best add-on out there!This user has 4 previous reviews of this add-on.
the page title is not on the page tab it is the url address Rated 5 out of 5 stars
this problem happens when I load a session using Session Manager. the Session Manager loads the session with the urls on the tabs instead of pages titles.
I say to the developer, I think it is global problem so you do not need log file just try that on your firefox. This is not helping us in navigating using the drop down menu on the tabs bar
also I advice you to remove Double clicking an existing session overwrite that session, because the folowing scenarion could happen :
the session Manager opens in save mode and someone may forget that, and thinks it is in load mode, so he clicks on a session,
and sometimes the mouse double that click by itselfe for something wrong in it,
so that leads to overwrite that existing session and in this case the old session will not come back.
This happened with me.
Else that, it is great addon thank you
Great add-on Rated 5 out of 5 stars
It's the thing that I ever needed but I have one question/suggestion. Is there any way to export the sessions to another laptop? I am about to change computers and I wouldn't want to lose my stored sessions in here. If anyone could help me with this, that would be WONDERFUL!
THANKS SO MUCH!
Please, dev, any ideas? :-S. I'm getting desperated here....
The Crappofox did this again Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Thank you a million of times for this addon.
If I would be given 1 cent for every valueable website gone thanks to Crappofox, I would be a millioner. But I am an idiot using Crappofox without something that FIXES what should NEVER ever EXIST in Crappofox UPSTREAM. And Doodle Spy-rome is even worse.
Rated 1 out of 5 stars
thanks to point out that Unloadtabs is responsible of that problem I had.
I can add that it is though mainly a problem with Firefox because it works well if you downgrade to v40.0.3
so no lose of the URLs of the tab, even if unloaded.
Though Session manager ought to try to fix this. Or Unloadtabs.
Very useful Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Great addon, nice work. I hate it, when Firefox crashes for example right before I can restore the last session, and all is gone.
The only flaw I encountered is, if some tabs are unloaded, maybe with the addon UnloadTab (https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/unloadtab/?src=api) the url gets lost. I don't know exactly whether it is caused by that combination of addons, or something else.
Great work though!
Fast Dial Conflict Confirm Rated 4 out of 5 stars
metal321, big thanks.I have disabled fast dial and it fix "session not restore at startup" and "thouthands tabs about:blank"
restoring to a window with a lot of "new tab" forgotten tabs Rated 1 out of 5 stars
defeats the purpose of a tab manager plugin if whenever you restore some of your tabs are lost and replaced by empty tabs. fix this quick
Fast Dial Conflict Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I just wanted to correct the record on my last review. All the problems I was having with Session Manager were being caused by Fast Dial. Not only that but Fast Dial was wreaking all sorts of havoc on Firefox. Fortunately I finally stumbled onto the cause. Normally Fast Dial is a good addon but something has obviously gone seriously wrong with it.This user has 3 previous reviews of this add-on.
Eins der besten Addons. One of the best addons. Rated 5 out of 5 stars
When I research something, or just find a lot of stuff I want to read/watch/whatnot, I can just save it for tomorrow, carry on where I left of.
Has all the right features, and they work perfect for me. A GREAT piece of work!
Wenn ich etwas recherchier, or einfach viel find was ich lesen/anschauen möchte, oder was auch immer, kann ich einfach alles für morgen abspeichern und genau da weiter machen, wo ich war.
Hat genau die richtigen Features und die funktionieren alle für mich perfekt. Eine GROßARTIGE Arbeit!
tab titles turn to be urls, instead of the title of pages Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Not sure from which FF version, the session manager makes the tab titles shown as their url's. That some how a bit annoyed. I am using tab-mix plus in the same time. If I disable session manager, the problem is gone.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.8.1.10).
Loved it but... Definitely needs work Rated 1 out of 5 stars
I'm slowly teaching myself Japanese. I've been using Session Manager to keep track of all the materials I've found. It had built up to 2 windows, with 34 tabs on one and just over 180 in the other. Keeping to this amount for months with no problems.
Suddenly, today, I accidentally closed one of the windows. I thought this would be no problem as it keeps backups for days. But. No. Somehow, after closing that window, it managed to remove that window from all of the 10 backups.
Going back to using Ctrl+Shift+D. Much more reliable.
Some definitons would be nice Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Firefox calls the browser a WINDOW I think, and the URL box a TAB.
But this add-on uses the words: Window and SESSION, BUT, which is which?
I don't know if I need to save a WINDOW or SESSION or what will be lost and what is saved.
Very bad add on in all windows OS Rated 1 out of 5 stars
I have used it in windows xp, xp pro, 8 and 10 and it works some then it starts failing. This script has a lot of problems and the only response I get is that Michael has a lot of other work to do and not time to support it.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.8.1.9).
Very good. Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I must say congratulations to the developers. The only problem is that after an unexplained cleared from Firefox, in some cases, it do not back exactly as it was on the last session was because the session manager did not automatically save the last session, and therefore, I have to keep saving it manually.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.8.1.9).
