I switch to: "Show my windows and tabs from last time" when Firefox starts. This option is offered on Firefox General/Options page. "Show my windows and tabs from last time doesn't work". The "Firefox default page" appears instead. I do not want the default page & I did not pick it. I have been using Firefox for years & never had this problem before. Please help.

Note: Some software, like Advanced SystemCare with Surfing Protection, can protect files in the Firefox profile folder against changes. If you have such software then check the settings or uninstall this software.

You may have corrupt sessionstore file(s). Delete all sessionstore* files and the sessionstore-backups folder.

Type about:support in the address bar and press enter.

Under the page logo on the left side, you will see Application Basics. Under this find Profile Folder. To its right press the button Show Folder. This will open your file browser to the current Firefox profile. Now Close Firefox.

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

Thanks you but it did not help. I followed your instructions step by step and Firefox ignores options setup for "Show my windows and tabs from last time" when staring Firefox. Same problem...nothing changed. PLEASE help. Thanks

Are you using any 'session' add-ons?

When you start Firefox, are you using a shortcut? Open its properties and make sure there is nothing after Firefox.

We deleted sessionstore-backups folder only since there was no sessionstore* folder. I open Firefox from the startup bottom toolbar shortcut. I opened its properties & didn't find additional perimeters. Please help

I see a Restore Previous Session button on the about:home page that shows in the screenshot.

Does clicking that button restore the session?

  • History -> Restore Previous Session

Use one of these to close Firefox if you are currently doing that by clicking the close X on the Firefox title bar.

  • "3-bar" menu button -> Exit (Power button)
