Wait a minute. I just saw this:

"Kevin Jones made sessions restore using lazy tabs & browsers which means restoring any session becomes almost instant!"
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1345090

over here: https://blog.nightly.mozilla.org/

That said, my browser is DEATHLY SLOW today.

Lazy tabs don't work if you have browser.sessionstore.restore_on_demand set to false.
I am an idiot. Sorry for my poor English.

How does one tell? What does this affect? Will turning this functionality on remove the need to have this "Session Saver" extension any more?

I haven't seen an update to this in a while.

I am pretty sure my version is 0.8.1.13pre20170130b

Is that still the latest?

Thanks.

Hi!

I took a look at the error log for the bug when session manager fails to restore a crashed session, when e10s is on:

Also, what about Seamonkey? What is the latest/best version for that? Either Seamonkey release, or the beta.

Thanks again.

With lazy tabs sessions are restored faster. That's all.

Is it maybe possible to keep all backup files "forever"?
Or that my current session is automatically saved, when firefox closes ? ( like "session1", "session2" etc.)

If you manually save them they're not deleted. I don't think it's possible automatically. Maybe if you set the number of sessions to be saved to something ridiculously high, you could achieve it in practice. (And successfully avoid some overflow or other issue that might happen because of it)

Thank you. It would seem to be a simple piece of code for this to work ( especially since the "backup" feature does it by default), but it is not allowed to change code, correct?

I see . Can I fix the error or just extract URLs or tittles from the session file? It has about 150 tabs.

That means the file is corrupted and the session data is not in valid JSON format. Usually this means there's a missing quote or colon somewhere in the file. Tracking that down is time consuming because of the size of the files, though you may be able to use an online JSON validator to do so. Just copy the fourth line of the session file, into a validator.

Hi Morac,

I'm happy to hear that there is finally a possible fix/way to treat for this problem. I googled "online JSON validator". There are several. Do you have a preference?

Also, when you say "Just copy the fourth line of the session file, into a validator", is that "line 4" always gonna be what you copy into the validator, or did you determine that by "the error is at line 1 column 1512", and if so, how?

On another subject, for quite a while now, I have a issue with (I dont know a better way to describe this) the “save current browsing session” button freezing the browser (stopped responding) temporarily. This is consistent behavior. I have also noticed the same thing happening whenever I am building a profile and come to the time when I install Session Manager.

My initial launch of Firefox is slow, and I understand it's likely addon related, so I'm wondering if their is a relationship here with the symptoms I am experiencing?

https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/commen ... o/dhxoelo/
According to Tim Nguyen, WebExtensions API allows to access back/forward tab history and list of closed tabs/windows in a session. Text in text areas and scrolling position is possible to access and modify (only?) with content script - I guess that's an ugly hack, unfortunately. What do you think? Is Session Manager WebExtension possible now?

OK, this is my first time on jere. Just registered for this question/resolution.

I have Session Manager on my laptop. I also have it downloaded for Firefox Aurora & Firefox Beta. Yet, in my Add-on's list, it's the only extension that is greyed out. If I click on it, it only gives me the option to Uninstall. "Enable" is greyed out. So I uninstalled it. Went to the Add On Page for Session Manager & re-enabled it, yet I still have the same issue.

I need something so I can save these tabs I have open, & have had them open for a good month - 2 months. Right nkw, I have 93 tabs open on Firefox Aurora & 102 on Firefox Beta. I use the "Open in New Tab" function alot as there are items I'm shopping for for rebuilding my newly acquired, yet ill maintained & put together terribly with mismatched parts along with ugly noob (us sportbike riders call them squids, especially when they refer to sportbikes as "crotch rockets") accessories, articles on sportbikes, Truck accessories, job searches, etc...

I need to be able to close these sessions & save them so I can revisit them later & start from scratch with onlyppeni g about 20 tabs max for what I nee & in priority; #1 priority: Job, tied for #1 priority: just one part I must have for the bike in rebuilding so I can reassemble the front end, for when I lose my house & have to move out in 2 weeks, #3 Just truck accessory; 50" Straight LED Light Bar, everything else falls into etc..... But I need several windows open to find that one part for the bike as it's hard to find without paying the same amount for shipping as the small part.

If Session Manager doesn't work for Android Firefox anymore, what is an extension I can use that is just as good? Tmneed help fast! Thanks

Morac:
Is this the latest available version?
0.8.1.13pre20170130b

I seem to get some sort of corruption periodically, after which time no new session saving happens. I am then surprised when it loads to a session from earlier than expected.

@ DN123ABC - Yes, the latest versions are 0.8.1.13 (stable) and 0.8.1.13pre20170130b (test), both are identical. Just look here- https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/session-manager/.

Are you ready for deprecation of XUL & XBL & XPCOM extensions? Not?! Try Firefox ESR (still supported versions: 52 and even 45)
