In my answer I stated it did not work for Style = "Global override" (it should be "Default Style" instead - the second option). Which version of Notepad++ did you use for testing?

That is the separate application UltraCompare‌​, right? Is it the "Lite" or "Pro" version?

comment How do you format a 2 GB SD card to FAT32 (preferably with Disk Utility)?
If the SD card is write-protected the result is a rather misleading error message. Perhaps you can include that in the answer?

In Firefox 40, it appears to save it in file "\sessionstore-backups\recovery.js" (note: in sub folder "sessionstore-backups") instead of "sessionstore.js" (and the previous version in "\sessionstore-backups\recovery.js").
