I pasted the first review on the session manager page in its entirety so you'd get a second opinion.
Why this AddOn and these reviews (read on)!?!? Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I don't the get point of this AddOn at all.
The fact that this AddOn's got NOT a few, but MANY 'terrific,'5-star reviews makes me (even) leery.
So, in a nutshell, this 'Session Manager' restores your browser ('windows & all,' as someone said) to it's pre-crash state.
Well, guess what?WITHOUT Session Manager, your Firefox browser will DO IT ITSELF.Maybe you never bothered to look, but, right after a crash, you'll have one tab, which says 'do you want me to RESTORE (your browser) as it was.'
It even gives you the option of WHICH tabs & windows to (not) restore. If you need tabs from BEFORE your last session - just look at your history - those tabs & windows are there.
I write this review for a couple of reasons:
The first, is the goal of everyone should be having a healthy browser, and by that, I mean a browser that does what you want/need it to, without adding excessive weight - which WILL slow your browser down.
As this AddOn is extemporaneous, I cannot see what it's purpose is, other than to fall into 'unnecessary weight' category.
The second reason for this review is the 'reviews' I see here (and elsewhere - Session Manager ISN"T the only AddOn with so many out-of-proportion 'glowing reviews').
This AddOn has many 'reviews' - and it's in parens just for that reason; I'm very dubious of these innocuous, irrelevant AddOns that SEEM TO be the 'best' whatever.
If you're familiar with what people do with (book) reviews on Amazon, then you understand what I'm saying.Also, like Amazon, the reviewer DOESN'T have had to (in Amazon's case, buy the product) even have USED the AddOn to WRITE a review.
In this AddOn's case, it seems all these 'reviwers' are applauding how great it is, but, they all seem to 'forget' Firefox DOES what this thing does.
A word-to-the-wise: in this day & age, of everyone & their mother, not only having an opinion, but, having the ability to share it with the world, you should realise that unless YOU KNOW WHO a 'reviewer' (or ANYTHING in your life, for that matter), DON'T be so gullible to believe everything you hear.
Nine times out of ten, it's NOT the truth, and the person doing the praising has an agenda, which ISN'T the same as yours (unless it IS your mom ;->).
