Addon for creating multiple session backups?

Unread postby Octopuss » Thu, 08 Nov 2018, 13:03

I have just lost my entire session again. No idea what happened, but PM opened with start page, and the bak file is full of stop chars, in other words it's completely fucked.
Apparently I need an addon that would keep multiple session backups somewhere.
Does anything like that exist?

Pale Moon is not Firefox Quantum, so it will work. ;)

Windows 7 (64-bit) (Sometimes)

I happened to me too a couple times that PM lost my entire session for no apparent reason. Really annoying. I’ll try this addon.

Edit: PM 27 tells me the addon is not compatible.

For PM 27, you may need an older version. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... /versions/

I happily use Session Manager 0.8.1.17 and PM 28 flags it "orange" which should mean "compatible"

The blue/orange indicators are not about actual compatibility, and where did you find version 0.8.1.17? I only see 0.8.1.13 as latest available.

Sorry, 0.8.1.7, I copied (wrongly) by hand. Inherite from some previous installation, I guess.

That is incorrect.

About the blue and orange indicators (some info in the user posts and responces is outdated like mentions of "PMKit" because it was writed from the perspective of PM27)

Thanks, that worked (v0.8.1.7). I have set it to create a new backup every hour, hopefully it will help if PM loses my session again one day.
