I am always using firefox with many tabs and when closing firefox I leave them opened. Recently when I re-open firefox I get session restore window and everything is gone. But restore doesn't work as it should be and I am running my computer at an early date to get back my firefox again. I would be glad if you could help me on this issue.

Use "Firefox > Exit" (Windows: Firefox/File > Exit; Mac: Firefox > Quit Firefox; Linux: Firefox/File > Quit) to close Firefox if you are currently doing that by clicking the close X on the Firefox title bar.

In case you use "Clear history when Firefox closes":

  • do not clear the Browsing History

Note that clearing "Site Preferences" clears all exceptions for cookies, images, pop-up windows, software installation, passwords, and other website specific data.

Thank you for your interest. I used to close firefox already in that way and also I've already configured history settings as you said. I think my promblem is more complicated. And I set browser.sessionstore prefs its default values. Although I uninstall and reinstall the firefox many times same thing is happening again. Could you help me in any other way? Thank you.
