FreshStart 1.7 is released!

Hey there, fellow FreshStarters!

Guess what? FreshStart just got a fresh update – version 1.7 is out now, and even I'm surprised, lol! If you're new to FreshStart, make sure to catch up on what you've missed with our previous posts.

What's New?

Visually, things haven't changed much, but under the hood, it's like we've given FreshStart a whole new engine to run on, all to keep up with the latest Manifest V3.

*Manifest V3 is a new requirement from Chrome web store if extensions want to stay on the store.

Patch 1.7.1 Updates: (RELEASED! 17th May)

Please make sure you have updated to the latest version. Thanks!

Hi, everyone, the comment section is not the official area to report bug, please email to contactus@visibotech.com.

Open Session Problems - Fixed

Import session issues - Fixed

Snapshots gone from 1.6 gone - won't fixed
For the snapshots, they were meant to be valid for a very short period of time and will be overwritten multiple times during a standard chrome session. So there is no need to restore them to the extension. 

Please note that due to Manifest V3, the live cycle of the background task of an extension will not persist, so the crash restore functions might be affected somehow. (Might be a bit erratic but that the new Chrome's way I guess.)  

TooManyTabs for Chrome

Oh, and speaking of Manifest V3, I've also upgraded TooManyTabs (TMT), another Chrome's relics extension. If you're into that sort of thing, be sure to check it out!

Enjoy!

It was already broken for me before the update, only loading one window out of the 5 I was saving most of the times (sometimes it opened up to 3 windows, sometimes it simply didn't open any window). That started around the time Youtube started doing some anti ad-block stuff, so that felt like Google Chrome broke something with the extension.

Had been looking for another extension that does the same thing, but all of the others load up fake tabs that require an extra step to load, which really annoys me. So I had been left opening reopening my tabs manually for the last couple months... Glad to see at least that this extension isn't completely forgotten.

Cannot import a session from JSON file anymore... possibly broken with the upgrade.

Any chance that saving tab groups will be added? :)

I found that it still works if you middle click rather than left click

Lost all my previous session snapshots. All five crash recovery snapshots are completely blank. Any ideas where I can pick them backup? These are tabs/windows that never got saved to sessions.

Ok, so I think I found the data in a log file located in AppData\Local\.....

Now, how to import back into FreshStart. Most of the data in the log file is unintelligible but I'm assuming the extension can read it. Might have to be a previous version of the extension though??? Any advice?
