Managing a Firefox restart

Hi. I keep several Firefox tabs open and active on my laptop. Inevitably, Firefox slows down after a week or several weeks and would benefit from a Quit / Restart. But then (I think) I would lose my tabs, which would mean a trip to the library to login and get them back. If I do nothing, a superslow Firefox will usually mean my laptop eventually restarts on its own. Then when I open Firefox I see a "Restore Session" option, which brings everything back (I think I see Restore Session because the computer did its own shutdown). So, this does work, but I have a slow computer until the laptop does its own restart. I am wondering if I can initiate my own Firefox Quit / Restart which will give me the "Restore Session" option. Thanks!

You can set Firefox to restore your previous session automatically. This is right at the top of the Settings page. So if you quit Firefox (using the menu; closing individual windows may cause problems), then when you start it back up again, Firefox should load your previous windows and tabs. Similarly to your post-crash scenario, only the active tab in each window is loaded immediately, the others are deferred and load when you access them.

As a backup for peace of mind, you can bookmark all tabs in your current window to a new folder using either:

  • (menu bar) Bookmarks > Bookmark all tabs...
  • Command+Shift+D

If you have multiple windows open, you can repeat that in each window.

Thank you so much; I will definitely be doing that from now on. It looks like (for my version of Mac OS) I need to go to Preferences, then check "Open previous windows and tabs."

Note that you can find a Restart button on the about:profiles page, that you can open via the address bar. Using this button should keep all normal windows and its tabs (Private Browsing mode windows are lost).

Very interesting; I'd never noticed those about:profiles settings.
