Can't restore previous session, "recently closed windows" grayed out

Hi

I had two Firefox windows open. One with 100+ tabs and the other with 1 tab. I closed the Firefox with 100 tabs, and then closed the one with 1 tab, without thinking. I then realised that I should have closed them in the opposite order, because I want the 100 tabs to get restored.

I opened Firefox again and was dismayed to see just the single tab get restored. I did some searching and backed up the "sessionstore-backups" folder.

I then tried to close Firefox and replace sessionstore.jsonlz4 with previous.jsonlz4 from the backed up "sessionstore-backups" folder. This did not work, as when I opened Firefox I still only got the 1 tab back and "recently closed windows" remains grayed out. Ctrl+Shift+N does nothing as well.

I used https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/scrounger.html to inspect the backed up previous.jsonlz4 file and it shows

Open Windows Open Window 1 Tab 1 [...]

Closed Windows Closed Window 1 Tab 1 [...] [...] Tab 125 [...]

So the previous.jsonlz4 file does contain my mistakenly closed window but I can't get Firefox to restore the tabs!

Can anyone please help me get my tabs back? I'm on Firefox v96.0.1.

I recently deleted all cookies & site data & now whenever I search for something using Google I get the following message (below) where I also have to fill out a Captcha in order to proceed. This only happens with Firefox. On the same computer I have Microsoft Edge which has no problem with Google search. What's the problem with Firefox? Will give up this browser if this continues.

Before updating to Firefox 96, I could close tabs no matter how squished they were. Now I cannot. Someone with a similar problem at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1194322 was able to find help, but I'm not meeting with any success implementing their chosen fix. Is there a way to keep the close tab button active with this many tabs anymore, or is that out?

Dear Mozilla/Firefox,

I've been using Firefox over the last couple of months/years but I just can't get the restore recently closed tab shortcut (CTRL+SHIFT+T) to work on my windows PC.

Here's a (Loom) recording of me showing that Firefox does correctly track the history of closed tabs and that I can click on them to restore but the shortcut (which is also mentioned as CTRL+SHIFT+T) just won't work: https://www.loom.com/share/7048894683654dccb4926aa4dd09e6a6

What I've tried so far: - Check if the history is actively collected - No I'm not using private browsing - I've read another support thread to check "about:config" and in there check that "browser.sessionstore.max_tabs_undo" is set (in my case it's the default 25) - Disabling all extensions (which I don't think are any suspicious or weird ones but disabled just to check - see attached image) - Resetting Firefox through the windows uninstaller - Fully uninstalling (using Revo Uninstaller with advanced check) and reinstalling Firefox

Please help me because I'm about to quit Firefox for such often used feature just not working...

P.S. it's working perfectly on my Macbook and I'm running the latest 96.0.1 64bit version

Hi, for the past week whenever I open Firefox (FF) it works normally for about two minutes, then slows, then causes my entire mac to slow and freeze. If I don't force quit FF quickly, my mac crashes. Once I force quit FF everything is fine. I've been using Chrome for the past week or so hoping FF would fix itself with an update but no go.

Anyone else having this issues?

Hi, when I use Firefox on this machine, the bookmark sync doesn't work as expected. Instead of maintaining the order of the other devices' bookmark toolbar, it is ordering the non-folder bookmarks before the foldered bookmarks. How can I make it so the bookmark toolbar is the same across all devices? I have tried deleted places.sqlite and backupbookmarks folder.

I have consulted https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-do-i-restore-my-tabs-last-time. That article says:

-Click on the menu button [three lines at the upper right] to open the menu panel. -Click History. -Click Recently Closed Tabs.

I am using Firefox 95.0.2 for Mac (iOS 10.15.7). There is no "Recently Closed Tabs" option to click after clicking on History per the above instruction. I have saved various files from the time of the crash, in particular "previous.jsonlz4" (a 20.6 MB file, as I had a very large number of tabs open). Is there any way to use this or some other file to restore my old tabs?

Firefox version 96 - I can no long go to Google Drive and have it zip files for me to download. I am getting an error saying I don't have 3rd parties cookies enabled. I have not changed a thing. The only thing that changed is this Firefox update.

I rolled back to version 95 and it was fine. I told Firefox to let me know when I need to update and I decide and then it proceeds to update itself (again).

Any reason why I am getting the cookie error? I checked all my allowances in Firefox settings and in my antivirus, even though I have not changed anything there. And why would it update again after I told it not to?

When using Firefox I noticed that some pages weren't loading. I found it weird how no matter how I tried I couldn't get them to load. The already loaded pages were videos which were loading fine. Now nothing loads anymore.

I tried to go into settings or the help menu but those weren't loading. Now I am staring at a blank window with nothing but a search bar that doesn't work.

In the middle of this it came up with an error VIS something? It said that I had a missing file and said that reinstalling Firefox was the way to go. I've reinstalled Firefox already but it's done nothing but remove the error message and I still can't do anything.
