Firefox Session Manager

Firefox Zealotry Time… Yes again.

How many times have you shutdown Firefox and then thought “Bugger I actually needed that screen… oh well I can get it from the history”. The problem being that you never do until whoever was chasing you for the info starts yelling.

So what you need is a way for Firefox to remember what you were doing and which tab was logged into what and which password you had used to authenticate and you need the Session Manager Extension. Using it allows you start up again and have everything come back just the way the way it was.

Here is the hype …

Session Manager :: Mozilla Add-ons :: Add Features to Mozilla Software

Session Manager saves and restores the state of all windows – either when you want it or automatically at startup and after crashes. Additionally it offers you to reopen (accidentally) closed windows and tabs. If you’re afraid of losing data while browsing – this extension allows you to relax…

Sounds cool huh? It isn’t perfect , like my dream is to have the session info be able to travel from machine to machine. But it is a good place to start.

Sadly I have just noticed that the developer wont be continuing development on through Version 2. Lets hope someone will pick it up and keep it going.
