When I tried to open firefox it automatically updated and supressed the sessionstore.js file. I saved the sessionstore.bak into another folder, closed mozilla, changed the extension bak to js in the "profiles" folder of firefox and opened it again but nothing happened. Though the sessionstore.bak file is 13Ko big and seems to contain all the links of my previous session.
How could I force Firefox to start a session using the information in the sessionstore.bak or .js file as it should?

Hello lordsilver2, the method you tried is the correct, if doesn't work maybe the sessionstore.bak (renamed to sessionstore.js) is corrupted.
First make a copy of the file (the renamed sessionstore.js) to your desktop and then try to create a new profile and move the copy in the new profile to see if that works. If the file is corrupted it is not sure that the above works.
Did you check for recently closed tabs and windows with that restored sessionstore.js file?
