Hello,

If you did close Firefox, it is still possible to restore an older session assuming it was not overwritten.

You can copy one of your older session files from one of the backups described in the link above, paste it onto your desktop and shut down Firefox, then move it from your desktop into your profile folder and rename it into sessionstore.js. If you need help getting to your profile folder, please see the article Profiles - Where Firefox stores your bookmarks, passwords and other user data.
