what file holds history of tabs last open?

I have used the remember and restore last open tabs option to restore all my tabs when I start FF every day.

However, I accidentally closed FF without the tabs open today. So I lost my "open tabs" history.

Now I need to look in Time Machine (OS X) and find whatever file it is from yesterday that saved my tabs open history.

Does anyone know what this file is called?

Thanks. Mac

Open and closed tabs are stored as part of the session data in the sessionstore.js file in the Firefox profile folder.

You can use this button to go to the currently used Firefox profile folder:
