User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:35.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/35.0
Build ID: 20150125221831

Steps to reproduce:

I work with Session Manager
I used 3 profiles and this was long previously
I needed to create 2 other profiles, so I installed the extension on the two other profiles
but now I have problems with the default profile (the other 'old' work properly ) . 
Nothing appears in the tools menu and nothing is asked disconnection;
so it is impossible to backup / restore a session with the profile by default.
It's pretty boring before it worked fine

Actual results:

I created a new profile and started all over again ; in fact, it seems that only the default profile causing this problem .

Expected results:

It seems that the default profile is not treated like the others, it is strange

Perhaps you should 
- Give a bug title more accurate.
- Give more details in your steps to reproduce. But I know this last point can be discussed. Perhaps for a developer, it will be enough. But not for me. :)

But you can't give just one word to define a bug title. :)

The problem came when I created new profiles. 
Maybe it's an automatic update but until then I had not noticed this problem.
I began to want to create additional profiles because until then I did was using only three, 
but each with [too  :-) ] many tabs open, although grouped tab groups ...
Anyway, I noticed as my default profile never gave me access to the menu <Tools> <session manager> suddenly I could not use it.
I created a new default profile, installed the plugin, but has no access to the session manager.
In addition, all other profiles (old and new) have them, although access to the session manager.
Now I routinely work with 'firefox -no-remote -P ...'
Of course, I would have to think about how I work!
My version of Firefox is 35.0.1 and I am on ubuntu 14.10

Three or four reviews at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/session-manager/reviews/ say Firefox 35 update breaks the extension.

One (says FF15, which is probably a mistake?) suggests enabling dom.indexedDB.enabled in about:config as a workaround https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/session-manager/reviews/666508/

Please try disabling other extensions in the profile to see if any of them breaks SM.  Also, check if the dom.indexedDB.enabled setting in about:config (enter about:config in your address bar) affects it.

Well, regarding about: config value is true by default. 

Regarding the extension conflicts , I have the same result disabling all the plugins (except manager session course)...

And it does so only with the default profile .
I always look ...
