nsISessionStore.idl nsISessionStore keeps track of the current browsing state - i.e. tab history, cookies, scroll state, form data, POSTDATA and window features - and allows to restore everything into one browser window. The nsISessionStore API operates mostly on browser windows and the tabbrowser tabs contained in them: * "Browser windows" are those DOM windows having loaded chrome://navigator/content/navigator.xul . From overlays you can just pass the global |window| object to the API, though (or |top| from a sidebar). From elsewhere you can get browser windows through the nsIWindowMediator by looking for "navigator:browser" windows. * "Tabbrowser tabs" are all the child nodes of a browser window's |getBrowser().tabContainer| such as e.g. |getBrowser().selectedTab|. 7463
nsSessionStartup.js Session Storage and Restoration Overview This service reads user's session file at startup, and makes a determination as to whether the session should be restored. It will restore the session under the circumstances described below. Crash Detection The session file stores a session.state property, that indicates whether the browser is currently running. When the browser shuts down, the field is changed to "stopped". At startup, this field is read, and if it's value is "running", then it's assumed that the browser had previously crashed, or at the very least that something bad happened, and that we should restore the session. Forced Restarts In the event that a restart is required due to application update or extension installation, set the browser.sessionstore.resume_session_once pref to true, and the session will be restored the next time the browser starts. Always Resume This service will always resume the session if the integer pref browser.startup.page is set to 3. 7257

nsSessionStore.js Session Storage and Restoration Overview This service keeps track of a user's session, storing the various bits required to return the browser to its current state. The relevant data is stored in memory, and is periodically saved to disk in a file in the profile directory. The service is started at first window load, in delayedStartup, and will restore the session from the data received from the nsSessionStartup service. 153358
