Hi fwang,

It's usual to have more than one open document in Amaya at a given time.
And it's also usual to work for several days on the same set of documents.

Firefox has a nice feature for users who do so, namely the "Save session"
and "quick restart" extensions.
These useful features let a user exit a session and have it reopened upon
browser restart, no matter how many windows and tabs were there.

IMO Amaya is half way of having something like this because of it's crash
recover feature.

Firefox apparently saves window information (geometry, position) and tab

The restart feature you filed in the wish list on behalf of John Stumbles
might well be the opportunity to consider the session saving and restoring
I'm suggesting.
A nicety (not in Firefox) would be sort of "named sessions" to enable
clustering of documents one works with. This would add an "Open document
set" menu item and "session name" input element somewhere in the session
saving UC.

Firefox seems to save the session data upon crashing, or preventively when
changes happen. If it didn't end happily then it offers the user to recover
the session as it was when the crash happened.
