Talk about add-ons and extension development.
I have 0.3 and disabling all other extensions does not help.
I switched to a fresh profile and now SS/CR do the right thing on startup.
I changed some filenames which apparently breaks the extension during the update. Please uninstall version 0.3 completely before installing any newer version. I'm sorry for the inconvenience.
One possible cause of session saving apparently not working might be that you crash Mozilla too fast. Set crashrecovery.save_interval to 500 and try again. However: if you manually set crashrecovery.save_interval, make sure that you set it as an integer value. Otherwise Crash Recovery won't work, either. I've tested it on Mozilla 1.8a4 and both crash recovering and session saving should work alright now.
Have you tried a clean profile? Have you manually set crashrecovery.sessionsaver (open about:config, search for that pref and set it to true; if it doesn't exist, add a new boolean pref of that name)? Otherwise: what system are you working on?
the interval was not the problem neither with .0.3.1 or .0.3.2.... i am also simulating the crashes by making sure user_pref("crashrecovery.running", true); is set prior to restarting Mozilla...
Still testing using Moz 1.7
v0.3.2 also has a different issue... the pref "crashrecovery.running" never gets changed to "false" on certain shutdown methods..... This causes the Crash Recovery prompt on EVERY start up.... I've verified that it has to do with the method of shutting down
File--->Exit or Ctrl+Q then Crash Recovery works as intended.
Alt+F4 or 'X'ing out or Ctrl+W (with only one tab) Crash Recovery fails to write the pref "crashrecovery.running" to "false" ....
I was able to reproduce this behavior with Mozilla 1.7.3 and 1.8a4 as well, in the meantime. I've played around some more with the code and it's getting better. Crash Recovery 0.3.3 now correctly shuts down in most cases. It apparently still doesn't, when several windows are closed in succession too quickly. Anyway, I hope that it get's at least bearable now, as I fear that part of the blame is Mozilla's.
The shutdown method bug is still present in v0.3.3
As an aside, the shutdown code of v0.3 works excellent . perhaps u can see what changed... Ultimately I believe it is a "bug/feature" of Windows OS (the 'X'ing out method). rue had the same issue at one time with SessionSaver (which he developed on a Mac not Windows).
Unfortunately I was too keen to keep a backup. Would you mind mailing me the .xpi or the .jar file?

BTW, could you please remove my email address from your above post. I just wasn't sure whether you had write access to any server...
I just want to clarify this. So that means that if I have SessionSaver, it will perform all of the Crash Recovery functions, as well (such as coming up with a dialogue box asking if I want to restore after a crash)?
~ Zepfanman.com - When you can't find it on Google. (Running FF 2/WinXP)
After a crash SessionSaver does not have a dialogue box, it will restore it automatically, while Crash Recovery will have a dialogue box.
Crash Recovery duplicates the most popular functions of SessionSaver but does not have the ability to store multiple Sessions, recall on demand, save on demand and has fine grained control of how sessions are restored (new/existing window/Tabs, restoring all windows as one)
Thanks for the clarification. So I think I will keep both SS and CR installed!
Not a good idea to install 2 extnsions performing the same task....plus u will have 2 sets of all your tabs opened if u click ok on the dialogue....
If you do this, just make sure that you deactivate SessionSaver's crash recovery functionality (otherwise you'll get the problems AnonEmoose has mentioned). Besides both extensions should work together.
However, if apart of crash recovering you just need the automatic session restore feature (cf. this post), you can get Crash Recovery doing that as well - just set the pref crashrecovery.sessionsaver to true (in about:config).
