Previous session doesn't restore. 'Restore Session' tab grayed out.

Posted

Sometimes when I start firefox there is no option to restore the previous session, and the 'restore session' option in the menus is grayed out.

This tends to happen after I've had Firefox closed for a longer than a day or two.

This is happening in Firefox version 70.0.1 (64-bit) on Ubuntu.

Don't delete the files if you need to rescue any data from them, just move them out of the profile folder to some location where Firefox doesn't look for them. You can try to read out their contents using this tool: https://www.jeffersonscher.com/res/scrounger.html
