How to automatically save sessions with multiple windows in Firefox

I've used primarily Firefox's built-in session management until recently. Now my needs have become more sophisticated. What I want is to be able to have two windows, one with a fixed set of tabs (approximately five) and the other with "automatic save".

"Just make sure ""Tools > Options > Main > Startup > When Firefox starts > show my windows and tabs from last time"" is selected and that you close Firefox from ""File > Exit"" so you close all windows. If you close Firefox windows separetely Firefox will only bring back the last closed window.

This was my set-up, but now I just use one window, together with the FaviconizeTab addon to strip the titles from all tabs, and leave the permanent tabs at the lefmost postions. This way, I don't have to switch between Firefox windows."

"There is an add-on here that you can use:

addons.mozilladotorg/en-US/firefox/addon/save-my-tabs/

You can quickly recover the tabs which are automatically saved as a .txt file.

You can then use for example http://linkopener.com to open them all"
