firefox add-on/extension to save previous session windows/tabs ?

hi folks, does anyone know a good add-on / extension for ff which 'saves' your open windows/tabs. i tell u why. when i use ccleaner to empty the cache/clear cookies etc. and then restart ff, all my open previous windows are gone. and yes, i have enabled in tools in ff: save last open windows/tabs etc. but no matter what i do it will forget my saved session after using ccleaner.

for example, the brilliant opera never has this issue as u can save multiple different sessions. so, does anyone know of anything similar for ff? thanks all as always.

okay thanks boo, have repped u, might not be what i want though. i am not so much interested in syncing bookmarks as just having ff save my last open windows/tab session. it always seems to fail to do so after using ccleaner. this is never an issue with the brilliant opera which has in built saved session feature. anyone else ?

thanks for the rep manhunter, xmarks features include syncing bookmarks , saving last open tabs and history, the beauty of xmarks is that you can log into xmarks from a different computer in another location and its all there, plus you need never worry about losing your bookmarks etc.

It works for me if you uncheck session in CCleaner.
