..but the meaning of the extension is to do it fast...so i dont't think that asking about multiple tabs is something that has to be added...
Not to mention that you can always check in the confirmation pop up...:)

Hmm... what is the extension version set out on the trunk? 1.6?


I *think* it is 1.6+. I just thought that "greater 1.5beta" would mean 1.6+ and 1.6 too :)

Yeah, 1.6 is it :D.
I've just updated 0.3.1 and the 0.4beta2 (warning, the settings menu isn't fully working) so that they work with the trunk (1.6a).

May I make a suggestion? Include some of tabmix plus code that allows the last session to be restored? Would go hand in hand with this extension imo.

While I would agree with you, that would be reinventing the wheel as you already have tabmix plus, or even better, SessionSaver.
Unless someone could give me a valid reason to implement it as well, I would have to say SessionSaveris a much better alternative, and probably better than anything I could code is a reasonable amount of time.


Sort of offtopic: But Mr. E has jumped on board as an Author on this extension, so the next version will be very nice as it will incorporate some of the missing features from his extension.

@Duke.

I could, however I think that would defeate it's purpose. I would hate to have two warnings
1)"Restart Firefox?"
then
2) "Multiple tabs/windows are open, are you sure you want to continue".

What I personally love about this is despite how many windows/tabs/etc you have open, it kills them all and restarts (exactly what firefox does when it updates itself), which rids you of a huge hassle.

Again, I'm not setting my foot in stone, however with the current confirmation dialog, I don't see the need for a second, or polluting the settings with two dialogs to dissable.

If I'm being unreasonable, please tell me as this is only my personal point of view.

Cheers

Not everyone uses tabmix plus nor sessionsaver, they like the basic functionality of FF without all the jazz. All you have to do is look at the replies in UMO to see that it is more than warranted. Infact I had to step in and defend the extension after some rather immature replies. Of course I am not knocking the extension, but there is certainly room for improvement. If MR E is doing this now, then I guess I have to wait til he posts a new version.

@Recall:
I totally agree. While I agree that tabmix plus is 'all that jazz', sessionsaver is pretty slick and does what it does and very well.

All I'm worried about is 1) reinventing the wheel, any my wheel might be inferior, 2) Conflicts with people who use tabmix plus or SessionSaver, 3) Lack of time to keep it updated. 4) Bloat, if I add this feature, RecallFirefox will then have 'all that jazz' too, something I would like to avoid.

I really strongly suggest you try session saver, and if you really think it's too much and have some ideas on how I should implement it in recall in a better way, I'm more than ready to listen :D

@minipouss: No, it's still alive and working for the latest Firefox 1.5beta 2.
I have a new version in my hands, just need to fix a few issues before releasing it... I've been packed with tests, school, work and contracts, but will try and find time asap.
