Announce and Discuss the Latest Theme and Extension Releases.
So yea- SessionSaver is awesome... except it doesn't handle multiple-windows quite right. And it doesn't support Mozilla. And it doesn't restore scroll-states. And doesn't crash-recover. Or, at least <a href="http://www.pikey.me.uk/mozilla">it</a> couldn't...
SessionSaver .2d (rewritten by rue): <a href="http://adblock.ethereal.net/SessionSaver/sessionsaver-02-dev.xpi">Installer</a>, and <a href="http://adblock.ethereal.net/SessionSaver/sessionsaver.jar">jar-file</a>.
Btw, here's a more detailed changelog, for those who dislike source:
Remembers window-chrome settings (toolbars, etc.)
Remembers window position / size
Remembers every tab's scroll-state
Remembers every tab's history scroll-states (in dev.)
Stores only 1 pref-string per window
Writes prefs to disk for every tab/window open + close
Captures complete session-state on shutdown-request
Writes flag on shutdown-request /
Crash-recovers prior session if flag wasn't written
Like I said in my other thread, It looks like your version of SS now far exeeds TBE's equivalent behaviour... Thanks!
EDIT: Installed, and have a few problems... Note that some of these probs may also be caused by miniT
1> On restoration of tabs in a previous session, I will have 2 copies of the tab that was in focus on browser close.
2> Ctrl-Tab usually doesn't scroll through the tabs in the correct order, and sometimes not at all...
Excellent job rue!
1> problem solved, dunno what caused it, but new profile fixed it.
2> Was gone for awhile, but resurfaced when i installed adblock... hmmm...
EDIT: Problem found, and your off the hook rue it was Toolbar Enhancements v0.11

Rue, why don't you call this by a different name?
Rue's Session Saver 0.1 or something like that.
Same with your cutemenu extensions.
The reason I mention this, is all your hard work is hidden deap into the Mozillazine Forums.
It would be great to list them on Extension-Room, or somewhere else atleaste to facilitate the re-install those of us who use them, and for new comers.
Just a thought
Since rue's version does everything mine does and more you may as well remove my version from the db and add rue's, probably save a lot of confusion in the long run.
It'd be kinda kewl to start a "TBE-Replacements" project on mozdev-- to house this and other like-minded extensions. By itself, SS doesn't seem enough to warrant a unique subdomain.
Btw, minor update posted:
Firebird Tools' menuitem removed -- unneeded, thanks to extensions' pane
tab-history recall patched for obscure infinite-loop
Yeah, that'd be cool!
Tried PM'ing this to djst? Exposure-wise I think a mention on Firebird Help would do such a project good.
Hmm, 0.2d doesn't work for me. I previously had 0.2 installed and ran the installed for 0.2d. For some add reason it wasn't working. So, I removed everything from the db and tried installing again but it still doesn't work. When I install the one from Pike's website it works fine, but I don't think it is 0.2d. I did check the obvious thinks like enabling it and options
edit: I even started a whole new chrome folder, but still no luck. btw, I'm sort of new at all this...
I'm not sure I follow: you "removed everything from the db"?
I removed all the old sessionsaver stuff from the .rdf files removed the .jar file. Then I installed it fresh and it still didn't work. When I install the version from Pike's website, the extension still says "0.2d" in the list, but it doesn't have any of the new features 0.2d is supposed to have. However, the session storing works with it.
Let's see, I'm running XP, Firebird 0.7, other extensions are:
Things They Left Out
When I deleted the chrome directory, and redid sessionsaver it didn't work.
