Announce and Discuss the Latest Theme and Extension Releases.
I also vote for a TBE-Replacements page. It could outline the advantages of using seperate extensions over TBE, and also give a feature-to-feature comparison on TBE compared to alternatives. It could also be a place for people to request TBE features, as they could easily see what's not avaliable elsewhere.
It sounds like you didn't completely remove either version. Btw, are you sure SS wasn't initially root-installed?
Try this: in the application-dir, open the chome folder and delete "chrome.rdf" and its overlayinfo-dir. Open "installed-chrome.txt" and remove any lines referencing sessionsaver. Lastly, remove the xul-cache from your profile-dir -- "XUL.mfl" or variant.
If that still doesn't fix it, you've probably corrupted your profile-chrome's rdf registry. In that case, you should delete the profile-chrome folder *and* edit prefs.js to remove all lines concerning sessionsaver.
ps: be sure to enable "automatic-restoration" in prefs. otherwise, it only activates on crash-recovery.
Hmm, it seems SessionSaver .2d is setting sessionsaver.settings.autosave in the config screen but is not using it. Adding 'user_pref("sessionsaver.settings.shutdown", true);' to prefs.js seems to enable autosaving for me.
A build was posted briefly yesterday which only crash-recovered. You might have grabbed it during that window.
However, all builds (including that one) have "autosaving" permanently-on. The pref for autosave is ignored, and I'll likely remove it. It runs contrary to the purpose of crash-recovery.
Btw, the ".settings.shutdown" pref is how SS knows the last session was properly shutdown.
I installed it a few minutes before posting (in a clean profile). Also the jar I have is identical to 0.2 d1 pass3 so I expect this is the newest version (also tried to replace my with it).
I usually retain version numbers for a long time. What I prefer to change are the build, nightly and pass numbers. The breakdown:
build: milestone, for sets of changes, a-la feature-groups
nightly: daily progress on a build
pass: for multiple nightlies in a day
If it's working consistently for you now, it might have choked on the initial lack of prefs. I'll have to test for that condition to be sure.
Sometimes, this session saver .2d does not remember the last closed tabs. It opens with no tabs at all. And when I chose to restore session, it opens 2 empty tabs for me.
frease, check in the processes to make sure that you don't have firebird process still running? I had similar problem, and was really upset about upgrading to this new session saver, but it turned out that firebird did not shut down completely.
Just a thought..
Maybe you are right. The next time that happens, I'll check that
Since upgrading, have you experienced incomplete-shutdowns more than once?

proper handling for prefs on "clean install" -- re: dorando
Well, I must be doing something completely wrong.
I tried doing both things you suggested rue, but to no avail. So, finally, I just erased all of Firebird and unzipped a new one. No extensions were listed in the options. So, I click on the installer link on the firt page of this thread, and download the sessionsaver-02-dev.xpi file and it loads fine. Then I restart the browser. However, the when I go the the sessionsaver options under the extensions list, I only see:
"Automatically store a session at shutdown
Automatically restore a session at startup"
I tried downloading the .jar file and replacing the one in my profile, although I think they are the same.
I know I may sound stupid, but I figure I'm just overlooking something simple I'm doing. I'm normally not this slow
I very well may have installed it root. When I started using FireBird about a week ago, I was just learning. I figured even if I did install it root, deleting the root folder and starting with a new one would fix that, but I'm sure that could be wrong Thanks guys.
