Firefox 93.0 64bit Linux Mint 1.0

When I close (X) the window, my session is not restored. I have checked all the settings and verified that they are set correctly. Then, I found that when I tried to quit the program via File menu, it says that I have two windows and three tabs open, yet I only have on window/one tab open. I can not find this other window... What does this mean? Have tried refreshing the app, safe mode, and disabling the extensions that I use.

Thanks!

If the browser is running, but not showing on the screen, it could be the window is open outside where you can see it.

Note that you should be able to navigate Firefox windows via Alt + ~ (backtick).

So I have renamed the xulstore.json file and even deleted both of the files (old and new). Whenever I close out of the browser, and open a new window, session restore still does not load my previous session..

The xulstore.json file is for the window itself (not showing in the view area). Is that taken care of?


As to your sessions; You may have corrupt sessionstore [v56] sessionstore.jsonlz4 file(s). Delete all sessionstore* files and the sessionstore-backups folder.

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

Linux: Under the page logo on the left side, you will see Application Basics. Under this find Profile Directory. To its right press the button Open Directory.

Locate the above file. Then rename or delete it. Restart Firefox.
