Solution: Saving All The Tabs And Reloading Them Anywhere (From Archived Thread)

Hi,

My problem "was" that I was working on Firefox at my home and at my office. As computers are fast these days, I am in habit of opening large number of tabs in firefox. And I always wanted to open the same tabs at my office which I was opening at my home and vice versa. I further wanted to clean the browsing history after leaving the computer at my work as well as home.

While searching through the forums, I reached to this thread:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/960096

And to my satisfaction, the exact answer was not there.

Anyways, doing a little more search, I found why I will never stop loving Firefox and its because of its wonderful "addons".

So here I re-write the problem,

I want to save the addresses of different tabs opened in my Firefox and save them to a file that can be re-opened by Firefox on the same computer or on a different computer with the option to clean the browser history after leaving the computer.

Solution: "Session Manager Addon" of firefox.

Steps to the solution:

1. Download and install a firefox addon called "session manager".

URL: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/session-manager/

2. After installing this addon, go to Firefox -> Sesion Manager -> Session Manager -> Session Manager Options. (or to Tools -> Session Manager -> Session Manager -> Session Manager Options)

Go to "Advanced" tab.

Now change the default location for saving the session. Say you name it to your desktop.

Now, you have "Session Manager" addon installed, the default location of saving the session file is known to you (say your desktop).

3. Now go to, "Firefox -> Session Manager -> Session Manager -> Save Session" and give your session a name under the option "Save the current session as". (or to "Tools -> Session Manager -> Session Manager -> Save Session")

4. Suppose you give your session a name called "New Session". In your default location of saving the session (say your desktop), you will get a file named "New Session.session"

5. Now this file is the key. It's a small file and you can simply email it to yourself or carry it to your work with you.

6. Just place this file at same location on the different computer and repeat Steps 1 and 2.

7. Now Session Manager is installed and configured on the other computer and the file has been copied to the desktop of this other computer.

8. Go to Firefox -> Session Manager -> Session Manager -> Load Session (or to Tools -> Session Manager -> Session Manager -> Load Session) and the saved session will be loaded to the different computer by Firefox.


Now, how this addon can help someone?

1. It is extremely useful for people like me who are addicted to opening many many tabs at once and want to resume working from the same set of tabs whether they are at home, office or some other place.

2. Suppose, you are surfing some personal sites that you do not want other people to know and you can't bookmark those sites. You are on a different computer, say at your office and want to clean the browsing history too.

The best option in such cases is to save the session completely and re-load it on a different computer.

I personally found "Session Manager" addon better than "copy urls expert".

The only improvement I would like to see is that Firefox itself should allow multiple tabs to saved to a file that can be opened by Firefox just like we open a saved HTML page.

And thanks to Michael Kraft for creating this wonderful addon... Really liked and I hope my post help others.

thanks

I have the latest version of Firefox (26.0). I'm not sure if a Flash or Java update caused this issue.

Vine videos were playing fine in my browser. This was AFTER I changed the about:config settings for media.windows-media-foundation.enabled to "false" - They never seemed to load when this was set to "true"

But now, the problem is back. Vine videos will not play. I recently updated to Firefox 26.0 and this issue came back. Additionally, I did install a Java update. I have tried EVERYTHING to restore my browser to the way it was but nothing works. I have reinstalled Firefox. I have done clean installs of both Flash and Java. I have tried starting Firefox in safe mode, but the problem remains.

If I go to a Vine page (https://vine.co/v/heXdnb0m3dm) for example, all I see is a static image. I can't click on anything. It's just a static frozen image. On Twitter, the same Vine video appears as a black screen where it previously used to load just fine. Even on Tweetdeck, which uses Firefox as the default browser, the videos will no longer load. This is all when media.windows-media-foundation.enabled is set to "false"

If I change the settings so media.windows-media-foundation.enabled is set back to "true" then the video plays but I have no control over sound. There is, in fact, no sound. The video plays on a loop. No sound. In fact, I can not even control the sound icon. Clicking the icon does nothing. It doesn't change to signify that the sound is on or muted. It remains the same muted icon.

So, basically if I try to play Vines by forcing them into flash, I get nothing at all. I get a static image. No video. No sound. No function.

If I leave the defaults the same and play them via HTML5, the video plays, but there is no sound and no control.

Please help! I have tried everything at this point!

UPDATE: I temporarily set security.csp.enable to "false" and the pages load up perfectly. Is this safe, though?

I have had 1-click Youtube video downloader addon installed for a little while now and it has always worked well. However, recently I tried to change to a different addon (in fact several different ones) but the Download button then disappeared. I have since re-installed Firefox and returned to 1-click Youtube Video downloader, but still when in a YouTube video page the Download button is missing, no matter which videos I select.

I would much appreciate some assistance as I use the YouTube Video download option a lot!

I've upgraded to Win 8.1, Firefox v26, Shockwave, Flash, and the newest Java JRE's. YouTube videos result in an error message and to try again later. The interesting feature is that IE v11 will show the videos with no error. The Win 8.1 upgrade took away my sound, and I've read the other problems that seem to be related to YouTube and sound. But, IE plays the videos with no sound, so that's not sound related.

The Firefox plugin checker is reporting "Update Now" for VLC media player Web Plugin 2.1.0. The 'update now' link invites me to download Plugin 2.1.2. but i already have 2.1.2 installed so the plugin checker is detecting the wrong version. I have had v2.1.2 installed since December 9th 2013 and run the plugin checker on a weekly basis so i'm not sure why it has suddenly decided that this is a vulnerable plugin.

I am running Firefox 26.0 on Windows XP

Firefox not loading tabs from last session

A few days ago I set up my laptop from scratch after a long time of not using it. In the process, I set up Firefox Sync to link it to my desktop's browser. This is the only thing I have changed recently. However, after rebooting my laptop, I noticed that whenever I closed the browser and reopened it, it would not restore my previous tabs. Of course the options are set to restore my tabs from last time. Even the manual options to restore my previous session from the history menu are greyed out. And perhaps more bizarre of all, when I click the 'x' button to close the browser, I have to click it twice to close it - clicking it once does nothing. Firefox is the only application experiencing this odd issue.

I thought it was just my laptop and decided it was too much of a headache to worry about for now, since I rarely use that. I've been going about my business as usual on my desktop for the past few days with no issue...until I booted up my computer this morning and found the same situation. None of my tabs (and I had numerous tabs across multiple tab groups that I've been using with no problems for months!!), when I close and reopen the browser it still doesn't remember what was open when I closed it, and once again I have to click the close button twice for it to take. The 'restore session' options in the history menu are once again greyed out.

Everything else appears fine - all my add-ons are still there, and it's still recording my history when I open new pages and close the browser. It's just not restoring the tabs. This is extremely frustrating to me as someone who ALWAYS has several tabs open at any given time. At least on my desktop, Firefox says it's up to date, so that shouldn't be an issue (I thought maybe a browser update could fix it). Is there anything I can do to fix this, preferably recovering my previous sessions in the process? I lost quite a bit and I'm not too happy about that...but even if recovery is impossible, can I at least fix it so it retains my session history going forward? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have Firefox 26.0 installed (though this has happened in previous versions). I have been through all the previous questions about this problem, but none match what I'm seeing. It's happening to others accessing my web site. I have a sample web page that I have up that presents the problem at http://flory.net/gabl/docx.htm.

When I click on the link on the above page (an office 2007 word document .docx), I get a page of gibberish as though it downloads the file as a text document. I've been through all the steps I could find in support to fix this to no avail, including resetting all defaults, etc. .doc works great, but I cannot find anything in the Options/Applications that will allow me to modify/add info to handle neither .doc nor .docx.

Hi, i just update today to firefox 26, and with my surprise the download box disappear, then i click on the download option (ctrl + j) and the bookmark open.

Are you devs out of your mind?

I use firefox for years and i love the separate download minibox where i can manage all my downloads, see the download speed, pause, resume and so on, why the hell you remove the best feature of your browser with this crappy bookmark/history integration no one ask? I really don't get it.

Please consider to revert this awfull change, at least make it optional so if i want to use the old download box i can use it.

If nothing will be done i'm forced to remove firefox from my pc and install chrome, after all these years with FF is a shame that you put in bad features like these withourt asking your community before.

Really disappointed, hope you revert the change.

Hi, The subject is sort of self explanatory but for the last few months (not sure exactly when) i have had regular Firefox crashes, it seems to happen when i'm out of memory and FF has used all the available RAM. I have a MBP with i7 and 8gig of RAM using the latest OSX 10.9.1 and latest FF 26. I always keep up to date with the software. Usually i have about 20 or so tabs open and go back and forth between these. I have googled and read allot on this topic and most people recommend starting in safe mode, without add-ons , creating clean profile etc and i have done these but slowly i get back into the same issue even after a clean profile.... It seems for every FF update the memory usage increases....back in the day FF was extremely fast and efficient. Or maybe latest FF just wants to remember so much and save just to much old information which leads to these ridiculous amount of memory usage, i tend to go over 3-4gig RAM after half a day alone before it crashes and all my tabs are lost which is extremely frustrating. Is there a way to limit the memory usage? Only helpful tips i have found so far that seems to remove allot of garbage from the cache and the footprint is going to about:memory and run the "minimize memory usage", this has been working great and so far after 2-3 hours its steady on 900meg (more or less) with 16 tabs open. Isnt this something FF needs to do regularly to get rid of old stuff ? i saw youtube and many other old stuff in the cache which i was not using and caused FF to go over 2 gig or so before i run this so why isnt this automated? as a user i shouldnt need to care about such thins really. I also used Safari for a few weeks with same amount of tabs and it never goes over 800-900 meg. I really hope you guys can explain and give me some tips as to how to limit the memory usage of FF and not the regular make a clean profile and generic tips. I really think the problem is FF and nothing else. I done extensive testing here and i'm using just a few add-ons Adblock plus All in one Gestures Swedish dictioanary Downloadhelper Screengrab Download Statusbar

Sorry if i sound irritated but having to lose my tabs daily and being forced to bookmark my tabs constantly just in case FF crashes has been bugging me for a while now and i'm on the verge to switch browser but frankly there is no other browser as good as FF (offering same amount of plugins/add-ons) so i badly want to use FF if possible.

If you need any more info let me know.

Things have gotten worse. I am unable to reset Firefox because the moment I go to Tools> (etc) reset Firefox, it crashes.

None of the Flash help I have received from both Adobe and Mozilla is helpful.

I finally uninstalled Firefox completely and on a whim, thought I would install Seamonkey. It runs.........But, will not play ANY Flash. The plug in crashes as soon as I try to access any Flash site.

I can use Chrome with no difficulty. I can use IE with no difficulty. So, guess what??? Firefox is out until someone can fix the problem. I'm convinced that Firefox can not handle any Flash software whether Macromedia, Adobe, Shockwave or any other part of it. That is totally unacceptable.

The way I see it, I need to revert to an older version of Firefox AND Flash player. Once I can do that I think it will work together because none of this happened until the newest version was installed.

Where can I find all the older versions of Firefox?? And will I have any difficulty installing them.

Like I said before, I'm a long time fan of Firefox. Problem is, it tries my patience just to get it running again when you folks do an upgrade. The problem ALWAYS involves Flash in some form.

With great anxt and sadness,
