Two sets of previous tabs switching between

When I first started using firefox, I was using the restore tabs feature, so when I shut down my computer and reopened it I would find myself back where I started. With time I had a lot of tabs open across multiple windows. One day I lost these tabs when I opened my computer, I'll call these tabs set one.

I didn't use the restore feature, since I figured I would just restart and maybe manage my tabs, so I started fresh and start a new set of windows. This set obviously went the same way, lots of tabs over a few windows, that restore when I open firefox on my computer. This is set two.

But every so often now I'll turn on my computer and find that I am on a different set. My previous collection of open tabs is back and while I can see in my history what I have searched, there is no option to restore the previous set of windows. It's not often, maybe once every few weeks, but it will switch between the two sets of tabs.

It's annoying because I am working with these tabs so if I am back on a previous set, then I need to reorganize my windows. Anyone had this issue?

Go to about:profiles in the address bar and see if there are multiple profiles on your system.

I downloaded the dev version of firefox for working on a project, and it created a profile for that. Haven't really used it since.

Not sure why it would swap between the profiles, but I now know how to find my tabs again. Thanks!'

Use one of these to close Firefox if you are currently doing that by clicking the close X on the Firefox Title bar or if you let the OS close Firefox, especially if you have multiple windows or Private Browsing windows open to prevent losing tabs in unnoticed windows.
