I'll try your suggestion however, another solution would be to put an option in the Restart Vivaldi to apply the update so thqt the opened tabs are restored.. That would not require setting the Last Session option or to save a session as you indicated but still give the user the option to restore the opened tabs on a update restart. It would be like an autosave of the session but only for the first restart.
@shadess haha that would be funny - when you see something from 2 days back...would be confusing as hell
But then a weird thing happened - and I remember it happening before too - after like an hour, I see another V instance in the background, and it popped right back ! The old session which I wanted!!
I had been wanting to update the forum but forgot to.
I doubt V can do much if session handling is done by the Chromium engine and doesnt expose any APIs for it
And the best part - for me - fortunately it only happens on F12 for Dev Tools (once in 10 times)....gonna remove that key if I can lol
Done - now must just remember the odd shortcut Ctrl+Shift+I which seems to be the Chrome default (at least V lets us change (some of) the darn weird shortcuts)
I might try that extension, but it'd be really wonderful to have an option at least for Vivaldi to save your individual sessions. I understand this becomes difficult, particulary with the feature that lets you open up a second session in the same window, but maybe just disabling that feature for those who opt into the auto-save will allow us to enjoy sessions to their fullest extent.
But I understand that could be a real pain for a use case that might be pretty niche.
**If no autosaving will be available, a shortcut to save the current session by overwriting the existing one would be really nice. The fact that I have to save each session as a brand new session if i want to save it is really cumbersome.
Remembering the "Save only this window" option for a session too.
Lastly an actual Session manager similar to the Window manager (or within it) would be extra nice.
Not trying to make demands or anything, just suggesting some quality of life improvements. I'm thrilled with Vivaldi overall and it's amazing that a browser like this exists in the first place
@Pesala I can save too but I was surprised that it was changed without any mention in changelogs.
To reopen session in private window You have to open new private window (Shift + Ctrl + N) and then load session.
Oh... Vivaldi also ignores unchecked "Open in new window" option.
So... looking at (non-obvious?) implementation it raises questions if this is a bug/regression now or was it bug/regression before.
I'd like to hear any official statement.
@waterfire I am also a long time Firefox user who has switched to Vivaldi.
There is nothing better than Session Manager by Morac for Firefox. It automatically makes session backups, and restores them superbly.
As far as I know, Vivaldi only has a manual session backup, so that is useless for me.
Session Buddy is what I use. It is nowhere near as good as Session Manager by Morac for Firefox, but at least it makes automatic session backups.
@novaviper Unfortunately, turning extensions off may not be enough.
As a test, rename your Vivaldi Default folder and see if it still crashes for you with a fresh profile (you can always rename back after testing)
Restoring sessions seems to be buggy. You should always save your browser session to make sure ('save open tabs as session'). If a third party session manager does the job better in your opinion, stick with that.
