@grizzler

First of all, I would like to know if the developer plans this or not.

I do not remember where his post is in the thread, but he said regardless of his desire to update the extension, the needed APIs do not currently exist in the browser to enable him to do so.

He's in luck.

... agenda for the November 14 WebExtensions
APIs triage meeting. Would you be able to join us?

Here’s a quick overview of what to expect at the triage:
* We normally spend 5 minutes per bug
* The more information in the bug, the better
* The goal of the triage is to give a general thumbs up or thumbs down on a
proposal; we won't be going deep into implementation details

Relevant Links:
* Wiki for the meeting: https://wiki.mozilla.org/Add-ons/Contribute/Triage
* Meeting agenda:
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1g3R ... F_Ao/edit#
* Vision doc for WebExtensions: https://wiki.mozilla.org/WebExtensions/Vision


Maybe he can get in on this, and get this stuff going.

Thanks


Is anyone else having this problem and is there a fix or troubleshooting process to go through? thanks

Is the session manager file able to be open to pull url's out?

Thanks

You can import a session using the extension "MySessions" https://addons.mozilla.org/ru/firefox/addon/my-sessions/

Yes, same problem. Firefox Quantum 57.0 not compatible with Session Manager.

1.) Can I revert back to Firefox 56.0 safely?
2.) How can I continue working with my Session Manager-saved tab sets?
3.) Will Session Manager be updated to work with Firefox Quantum 57.0 and beyond?

Tks.

Hi!

My Firefox just got upgraded to Quantum and Session Manager doesn't work anymore. Which sucks a lot. But what sucks even more is that I don't know if I am now able to backup those sessions to use them with another browser. Are they saved somewhere locally? I didn't know Firefox was getting this big update and I would be so angry if I just lost all my saved sessions.

Thanks!

Just revert to FF56 and your sessions will be there.

Really? Oh cool! Stupid question... How do I do that? And I am sorry, because the new Firefox is really fast, but until Session Manager doesn't work with it, it's a no from me.

your session files are located here:

C:\Users\your_user_name\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\your_profile.default\sessions

Firefox has multiple warnings about reverting to a prior rev level, citing security holes, etc..

Thanks guys ! (yes, I am assuming your gender:))

Found the sessions! Thanks! But I still want to revert to the older version. Or do you have any suggestions for a good browser that supports Session Manager, so I can import the sessions and still use the new Firefox when I want ?

Session Manager is an extension for Firefox, so...Firefox 56 or 52.5.0 ESR.

Oh, I thought there is just a revert kind of thing. I don't know why. I guess I'll have to do it the good ol' way:) Again, too bad, cause the new Firefox is pretty snappy.

Thanks again!
