Yup, that's what I was doing...so it doesn't get a WM_CLOSE.

After upgrading to Seamonkey 1.1 Beta I noticed it had broke again. On restart, only the last window open was getting restored, which I believe is behavior attributable to the "Last page visited" on startup setting. Indeed this time I could see that the crashrecovery.dat file was not being updated.

Is it expected that extensions need to be reinstalled as Seamonkey is upgraded? (It was installed in the same directory.)

I figured this would be a good time to run the tests on a clean profile, so I created one, reinstalled Crash Recovery, ran some tests, and it worked fine. Now with Crash Recovery reinstalled, I returned to my original profile, and it too was working fine. So it was either a problem with 1.0 or some other odd anomaly that got reset along the way by the browser upgrade and Crash Recovery reinstallation.

Confirmed. (Well...I was using the beta milestone, rather than a nightly.)

That depends on where the extension is installed and how you upgrade SeaMonkey. In this particular case, Crash Recovery is installed into SeaMonkey's installation directory and thus needs to be reinstalled if you uninstall before the upgrade. Should you just overwrite the previous installation you should be fine (haven't tested that myself, though).

Which is what I did. So I guess it was unexpected behavior.

It's seems that FlashGot breaks Crashrecovery or Session Manager functionality. Sessions are not restoring, all tabs were restoring with loading state but only previously current tab gets actually loaded. After uninstallation of Flashgot everything works. Using post Seamonkey 1.1.1 nightly of 1.8 branch (Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.8.1.4pre) Gecko/20070328 SeaMonkey/1.1.1 Mnenhy/0.7.5.0 - Build ID: 2007032801)

It looks like Crash Recovery doesn't work for normal users.

1) SeaMonkey is installed, Crash Recovery is installed in the application directory of SeaMonkey
2) A new profile for root is created at startup
3) Crash Recovery restores sessions
4) A new profile for a normal user is created at startup
5) Crash Recovery doesn't restore any sessions

It has to be a permission problem.
