Switch Profile does not Prompt to Save existing Session Restore
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:2.0.1) Gecko/20110511 Firefox/4.0.1 SeaMonkey/2.1 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:2.0.1) Gecko/20110511 Firefox/4.0.1 SeaMonkey/2.1 Switching Profile does not prompt to save the existing Session Restore. Session Restore is not invoked upon returning to initial Profile. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Start SeaMonkey, one Window, open one tab in that window - Profile1 2. Quit SeaMonkey (Ctrl+Q), saving the session (Save and Quit) 3. Restart SeaMonkey - still Profile1 4. Tools Switch Profile, changing to a different Profile2 - Profile2 opens 5. Tools Switch Profile, change back to Profile1 Actual Results: Profile1 opens. But Session Restore did not kick in. Windows/tabs that were opened & saved from the initial Profile1 session are not restored after Switch Profile & then switching back. Expected Results: Switching Profile should prompt to 'Save and Switch' / 'Switch' / 'Quit'. If 'Save and Switch' is selected, Session Restore should be invoked upon return to the initial Profile. Suppose that sessionstore.json does retain what was there even without explicitly Saving, so about:sessionrestore is able to recover the last session - assuming that you realize this & remember to invoke it. Don't think this applies to FF as I don't believe it has an interactive method to invoke Switch Profile? (Can only be done from command line/shortcut, so that kind of means you've already exited the browser, so should not be an issue there.)

Might as well use Application.restart()'s goodness...

Comment on attachment 619864 [details] [diff] [review] Proposed patch OK, this works only if browser.warnOnRestart is set to true. when set to false nsSuiteGlue.js skips not just the close warning prompt but also skips setting |this._saveSession = true|

(In reply to Philip Chee from comment #2) > when set to > false nsSuiteGlue.js skips not just the close warning prompt but also skips > setting |this._saveSession = true| We just copied nsBrowserGlue.js, I don't know what's desired. (Firefox seems to always save the session without prompting, but I don't know how that works...)
We're quitting the profile, so we need to prompt as such.
Comment on attachment 620659 [details] [diff] [review] Proposed patch Right this one works. Although for some reason I needed -purgecaches before I could get it working.
