Why is my SessionRestore txt file in Base64 gibberish?



  • Hello,

    I exported my SessionRestore to .txt.

    When I open it in TextEdit on the Mac, I'm greeted with what essentially looks like gibberish.

    Not human readable.

    Even when I try to decode this it's nuts.

    Perhaps you may want to look into how SR is exporting.

    Me? Here:

    Safari Version 11.1.2 (13605.3.8)

    Thank you very much for your attention. 🙂 SessionRestore looks awesome, exactly what I needed. When it works, I mean.



  • The thumbnail is also included....
    Which is also why the export is so large



  • you can export to SessionRestore JSON or a simple url list using SRExport:
