What it doesn't contain is the ability to save & restore a session on demand (Tools -> SessionSaver -> Save this window) and equivalent restore.
- The ability to restore the last session from when Firefox was closed (Menu Tools -> Options, Main tab, set "When Firefox starts:" to "Show my windows and tabs from last time")
- Re-open closed tabs (menu History -> Recently Closed Tabs, similar to Tools -> Snapback Tab of SessionSaver)
- Bookmark all tabs (menu Bookmarks -> Bookmark all tabs) to save addresses of all open tabs to a bookmark folder
I found that FF2 has built in "session saver" as I used it: I do NOT restore last session on statup, just only in case of a crash. That means I set session saver to store a session on close but not restore on start of FF. If you crash FF2 it asks you on restart to restore last session or not. Say: "yes" and you are done. This is exactly how I used session saver in the past. The only difference is you can not restore last session manually like in session saver. For this porpuse, you must safe all open tabs in a new bookmarks folder.
I found the new feature of FF conflicting with session saver, means if I select "new session" after crash of FF the session saver will not work properly. A new clean session will be started instead.
If anyone has a solution to stop the "built in session safer" of FF2 please let us know. Then we can go back to beloved session saver.
