Hi, I'll explain how the snapshot works in Manifest V3. The old background timer is no longer effective. In V3, upon Chrome's launch, I implement a one-minute delay to ensure all tabs are loaded before taking a snapshot. Then, a tab update event listener triggers another snapshot after the specified crash interval is over, such as every 5 minutes. Please email me if you need more details.

FreshStart has successfully opened all past sessions, and was used every day, for well over a decade. I totally love it.

It is an important tool f... Show more

Same here. Using Vivaldi under WinPro 10 x64. Same is true in latest Chrome--only 1 tab opens. I have over 80 saved sessions. Desperate!

Having the same problem as others - only opens the 1st tab of a session since the update. This is using Vivaldi Browser - is there a way to go back to version 1.6 (That worked) Edit: Seems to be working for me now.

Update May 27, 2024: Works perfectly again in both of my OSs. Excellent extension! ----------------------------- Update May 16, 2024: It worked in Windows, but not completely in Linux Mint. Middle clicking on the session opens all the tabs, but doesn't launch them in a different window. I can work with this though. ------------------------------ Update May 15, 2024: It works again! Kudos to developer for addressing the problem so fast. --------------------------- It worked very well, bu... Show more

After the recent update (14 May 2024) this extension will not open a session any longer. It only opens a single tab in a new window. :-(
