A workaround for a Firefox multi-monitor issue
Authored by: osxpounder on May 21, '07 11:12:08AM

I've been using Tab Mix Plus for so long, I can't remember how long it's been since I discovered it. It comes with Session Manager, and I've come to rely on it. Sometimes, rather than bookmark something I think I'll only be interested in short-term, I leave it in a tab when I quit Firefox, counting on it to be there when I restart ... even if I start Firefox on a different Mac [I work with 2, usually].

Meanwhile, I also signed up for the Google Browser Sync service, just to compare. It can't hold a candle to Session Manager. Firstly, it's not reliable; secondly, it stores its data on the network, not your machine, so: no network, no restored session. I still keep it installed, though -- too lazy to bother removing it.

I just upgraded to Firefox 2 this weekend and notice that F2 has some session manager-like features built in, but I haven't seen the prefs yet. I note there's no menu like Session Manager's....

About force-quitting Firefox to "crash" it so it restarts quickly with new Extensions installed: there's an extension for that, too! It's called "Restart Firefox".
