Firefox closed improperly and now the previous session won't open even after recovering the sessionstore.js from backup

more options

When I closed firefox window it froze and had to kill the process (probably due to the huge amount of tabs), but when I opened it again the session was lost, I've recovered the sessionstore.js from the recovery.js (as I've done a couple of times) but the session did not restore. Looking inside the sessiostore.js all my tabs are there but when I open firefox they are nowhere to be seen. It seems the sessionstore file is damage somehow, I'm attaching it to see if anyone can find the problem.

Best Regards,

Solved it! installed two addons called "about sessionstore" and "session manager" and was able to see that what seemed to have happened was that for some reason the session that closed with a problem closed the tabs as another window, so with session manager I was able to restore the tabs and tans groups.
