Editors' Review


Session Manager can save, backup, restore, and manage multiple Firefox tab sessions. It comes with the option of loading the last saved session, not loading a previous session, loading a specific older session, or asking for the user to choose. Already, that makes it more powerful than the native Firefox session manager.

In addition, it can save any number of older sessions, configurable from the main window, and gives users several options for session management when Firefox is shut down. The plug-in automatically backs up sessions in the event of a crash. Users can also configure how the add-on displays the list of saved sessions, merge new and old sessions on recovery, and reload tabs on recovery.

Finally, there are some nifty options for power users in Session Manager. You can configure how the sessions are named, change the default saved sessions location, encrypt saved session data, and configure how postdata gets saved, even from encrypted Web sites. Since each session file created by Firefox includes text data, cookies, and history, as well as tabs, being able to recreate all that information effortlessly is a major headache remover that shouldn't be underestimated.

"Excellent. Have used many times for several years."

Saving long lists of tabs is a wonderful thing, especially when planning vacations or learning about some complicated coding techniques. And it saves current tabs during a firefox crash. You can set it to auto-save in case you forget to manually save a session.


Not any that I can think of!


This is an extremely useful plugin.

Used to work great, I could switch between sessions, choose what to do at start up etc


Suddenly gone from my startup promt, not in the toolbar either, I have to disable and re-enable at every start up to find it


When I work out what causes the problem I'll post the info and let you all know
