Today stupid Opera lost all my 1400 tabs again. I didn't get why. There was enough free space on C: drive. But when I closed Opera and waited a few minutes I noticed there is one opera.exe process stuck and it was loading my CPU. So, I killed that. After I restarted Opera I discovered all my tabs are gone.
So, V7 Sessions (auto-saved session) saved my life again!
@vux777 thank you for this great extension! You managed to do the thing that code monkeys from Opera failed to do. And glad to see the continued development of this extension. It seems you took into account my request:
@aquavolt said in V7 Sessions:
Could we get an option in settings to save empty tabs in autosaved sessions as it is in manually saved sessions?
Now it looks like in auto-saved sessions the empty tabs are also saved. Thank you!
I want to ask for another feature: offline session restore.
Story: After I lost my 1400 tabs I need to restore them. If I just try to restore them by clicking Restore session button Opera will try to reload them all. Given that there are 1400 tabs it's impossible (no one has that much RAM). So, how I workaround that situation: I disconnect the network to make tabs reloading fail (so they will demand much less RAM) and then click Restore session button... and wait for a long time. The problems of such an approach:
- long time to wait
- Page titles are lost since the internet is disconnected and page failed to load (browser shows URL instead of page titles as the tab names)
It would be cool to solve this problem. I see two ways here.
First way: open tabs, but not reload them (not sure if Opera API supports that)
Second way: make V7 sessions autosave sessions in the format compatible with format of Opera's native "Current Session". So in case of Opera fault, we could just copy autosaved last session file from Local Extension Settings to Current Session (while the browser is closed) and then just run Opera with all the tabs open, with titles without the need to reload them all.
What do you think about this idea?
