Can no longer find sessionstore.js in profile. Have refreshed Firefox. Where is it? Screenshots attached

When Firefox crashes, there are times when, on restart, there is no "restore session" option. It is greyed out in all places, and all of the previous tabs are lost. I save tabs across many months.

Previously, I have saved a recent sessionstore.js file from the profile. Then, when this occurs, I go to the profile, delete and replace the sessionstore.js file with the saved one, and have a reasonably recent recovery of the tabs.

In this version of Firefox, 36.0.1, there is no sessionstore.js file in the profile (see screenshot 1). So, where is it?

There is a new folder called session-store backups (see screenshot 2). Reasonably, I looked in there.

There is no sessionstore.js file in that folder. There are files called recovery.js and recovery.bak in that folder. Each is dated today--3/6/2015

Is the new idea that if Firefox crashes and the tabs are not recoverable, that you rename the the recovery.js file as sessionstore.js and put it in the profile?

Or is the sessionstore.js file now in a new location?

I would always like to have a recent backup of sessionstore.js, having learned from past crashes that this is a good idea!

As an extra bonus, I have also added a screenshot of the profile folder and location (screenshot 4).

Many thanks.

They appear to work but when starting a new search the history comes right back.

Ever since I "refreshed" Firefox 36, a small black bar has appeared in the extreme upper right corner of the Firefox screen that exactly covers the Minimize/Resize/Exit buttons. Although the controls work properly when I click in the left/center/right area of the black bar, why is the bar there, in that exact spot, in the first place? And how do I get rid of it?

For awhile now, every time I open FireFox, the menu icon bar and bookmarks bar have switched positions so that the menu icon bar is immediately above the tabs, and the bookmarks bar is above that, instead of the other way around (see screenshot). If I open customize, and then close it, without changing anything, they switch places and go back to where they should be (bookmarks bar above the tabs, menu icon bar above that), but it's annoying to have to do this every time I use FF. I only have one extension related to menu bars, Tabs on Bottom, and I deactivated it and rebooted FireFox, but that didn't solve the problem. I also tried changing themes, to no avail. Is this a bug or is there some setting I can change?

Other stuff that may or may not be relevant: I have the awesome bar, URL bar, and all of my menu icons (sans text) on one line. I have the text menu bar also visible. I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate, 1152x864 res with text at 125%. I always have at least a couple of tabs pinned.

On another computer I use (Windows 7 Home Premium, 1366x768 res, 100% text, also always have something pinned), I do not have this problem. However, on that computer, there is empty vertical space between the tabs bar and the bookmarks bar, as if another bar should be there (see second screenshot). I realize these may be two separate issues, but then again, they both seem to suggest an overflow issue, so maybe not.

Hello, I have tried several steps to remove this adware manually, but it still shows up as my start page. - I was not able to disable it from the add-ons (it wasn't there), - I was not able to uninstall it from the Windows Control Panel (it wasn't there), - I ran regedit.exe and manually deleted every single line that read "mystartsearch", - I refreshed Firefox and manually set the start page to the default. No good. It's still there. I also tried opening Internet Explorer and that's been infected too. What else can I do? Any advice would be really appreciated.

I'm running Yosemite on a Mac Air, with fully-updated everything.

I'd like to stop pages reloading without my permission. This is usually an issue for me on news sites.

In FF preferences, the option to allow or disallow auto-reloading is tied to the option to redirect. I can allow or disallow both, but not allow one and not the other.

The net effect is, my news sites aren't automatically refreshing (yay), but other sites get stuck when a page redirect comes up. I play Scrabble online; now I have to manually allow a redirect with every play. Same with following Twitter links.

Is there some way to kill off the auto-reloads while still allowing redirects? Maybe a whitelist for redirects, as a secondary option?

Thanks!

Hi there. So, for quite a while now, Firefox keeps on freezing my whole computer while watching videos on YouTube or streams on Twitch. It started a few weeks back & when I couldn't resolve the problem, I changed to Chrome. But I just don't like it, so yesterday, I decided to go back to my fav browser: Firefox.

But my problem remains: When I'm watching a video, my browser constantly keeps freezing my whole MacBook. It starts with the video just stopping but the audio keeps going on for some 10-20 seconds. Then I can't move the cursor anymore & finally the sound dies & nothing reacts anymore. I can't even open the Activity Monitor or do anything else. So the only possibility for me to get back doing stuff is to hard reset my laptop & boot it again. This just happened to me twice in the last two & 4 or 5 times in the last 24 hours... I would really appreciate, if anyone could point me towards an solution.

Oh, and I'm on OS X 10.10.2 using Firefox 36.0.1 (but it also happened on 35.x before). Hardware Acceleration is turned off & flash is on its latest version. Cache has been flushed several times as well.

After updating Firefox (to 36.0.1), listed saved passwords were not being inserted at site logins. After deleting all saved password data, there was no prompt to save entered password data. I then deleted to recycle bin signons.sqlite, logins.json, and key3.db, exited Firefox, and hard restarted my Win 7 Pro 64bit desktop. Still not prompted to save entered password data. Remember passwords for sites box was checked throughout all of this, with several attempts at unchecking, OKing, closing and restarting Firefox, checking box, OKing, restarting Firefox, logging in to a site.

Another problem resulted from the last upgrade. I cannot get my home page to show when Firefox starts. The box under the general tab in Options is checked and the home page is entered. I tried setting the home page two ways: one by manually typing the url in Options and the other by browsing to the url and dragging the tab to the Home icon and saying yes to make this my home page.

Any ideas for resolutions to these issues would be appreciated.


Update: Just got notice to upgrade to Ver. 37.0.2. Installed the upgrade and now no problems! Hope this will help others.
