Safari 13 & macOS 10.14.6
Hello. I was prompted to update to Safari 13 this morning. Before doing that I used SessionRestore to save several windows/tabs that were open. That session successfully saved...and I could see all of my previously saved sessions.
After updating to Safari 13, I restarted my Mac and launched the browser. First thing that popped up was a dialog box indicating "Some of your extensions are no longer supported in Safari". SessionRestore was listed and I was directed to the App Store for an update. I purchased v1.5.2 and installed it.
Installation went well, and the RS button appeared in the Safari toolbar. When the SessionRestore app opened, however, none of my previously saved sessions were listed. It was a blank slate. Checking the SweeP forum, I saw that SRRecover might help.
After downloading and installing SRRecover, I clicked on the Generate Import File button and granted permission to access my Library path. No results were generated, however, nor was there a related file on the Desktop. I manually checked for com.apple.Safari.Extensions.plist but did not find it in ~/Library/Preferences/. Is that a consequence of the Safari 13 upgrade?
What's my next step...and are my previously saved sessions recoverable?
Prior to this, I hadn't been tracking changes to extensions in Safari and the impacts to SessionRestore. (Lesson learned) Since my combo of Mojave, Safari 12, and SR had been working (prior to 13), I just cruised along and saved sessions and retrieved groups as needed. I've never exported or imported sessions...which I have now added to my overall system backup workflow.
