I have to define every time that the main document is in master mode. I can't find a "save session" in my file menu. Is there a auto save session/auto restore saved session?

I run latest texmaker on latest Ubuntu.

In Texmaker 3.3.4 (Latest version-May 24 2012), its possible to save the current session in .tks (texmaker session) format. Once you click the current document as 'Master document', just save the whole . tex files as one session as shown below.

if the latest version is not available in Ubuntu Software Repository/synaptic manager, try downloading a .deb/.rpm made for your linux distro at http://www.xm1math.net/texmaker/download.html#linux

Inorder to Install the .deb you need a gdebi package installer available in Ubuntu Software Repository

Maybe not the solution you wanted, but try TeXstudio. It’s the bigger brother of TeXmaker and saves your session automatically. Maybe you must activate this feature (see below).

Here’s an image from the german Mac OS X version:
