How to automatically save Firefox sessions in regular intervals

Hey guys, is there any plugin for Firefox that can automatically save opened tabs & sessions in regular intervals, say 5 minutes?

BTW, after I update it to 21.0, the following page did not display at restarting the application after it cashed and all previously opened tabs were all gone with "Restore Previous Session" greyed!!!

There's no need for that kind of an extension (if one even exists) because you can just do this:
  1. Open the Tools menu and select "Options"
  2. Switch to the General tab
  3. Where it says "When Firefox starts", select "Show my windows and tabs from last time"
  4. Click OK
If this doesn't work, then I recommend Firefox 20 or even 19 (I prefer 19 myself).

Finally, I cannot bear this BIG BUG and I uninstall 21 and go back to 20...
This bug makes me many essential tab/session records lost!!!

Yep, and I'm still using Firefox 19 because Esc no longer stops animated GIFs in Firefox 20 and above. This isn't a bug, but it's something Mozilla did intentionally and they refuse to fix it. So I wonder if the same thing is going on here with what you're seeing.
