Upgraded to v1.7 - don't see previous sessions



  • Re: lost previous sessions on upgrade

    SessionRestore disappeared from Safari for me, possibly when Apple released v13 of Safari?
    Last version of SessionRestore.safariextz on my computer was 8/11/2018.
    So after reading your support BB, I upgraded to version 1.7 of SessionRestore.
    Upon starting it, my previous saved history states are not shown.
    Recall that you fixed this for me once before (8/13/2018).
    How can I get my previous history to reload?



  • SessionRestore is now a native app, and can't read the old js extension format. But, you can import your sessions into SessionRestore - take a look at this post:

  • Yes, I found that link you cited a day ago and tried it before seeing your post.
    Found my file under ~/Library⁩/Containers⁩/com.apple.Safari⁩/⁨Data⁩/Library⁩/⁨Preferences⁩/com.apple.Safari.Extensions.plist.

    1. I dragged that file onto SRExport, but a "SRExport quit unexpectedly" error was returned:
      Crashed Thread: 0 Dispatch queue: com.apple.main-thread

    Exception Type: EXC_BAD_INSTRUCTION (SIGILL)
    Exception Codes: 0x0000000000000001, 0x0000000000000000
    Exception Note: EXC_CORPSE_NOTIFY

    Termination Signal: Illegal instruction: 4
    Termination Reason: Namespace SIGNAL, Code 0x4
    Terminating Process: exc handler [7530]

    1. went to https://sessions-extension.github.io/Sessions/export.html , downloaded the script and following the instructions attempted to run it. Terminal returned the following error:
      ERROR /Users/danielcarlock/Library/Safari/Databases/safari-extension_yoo.david.sessions-deub45nr9t_0/ is either unreadable or contains no databases.

    What should I try next?
