Can't restore previous session Ubuntu 16.04

more options

Firefox crashed and now it won't let me restore my previous session. Other guides said to restore it with a backup file, but that was on windows, and this happened on ubuntu 16.04 and I don't know where that would be there. If it helps you any, I just upgraded my motherboard, cpu, and ram a few days ago. I'm sending this question from a separate windows partition.

What is your computer system and Firefox?

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web Link} by holding down the <Shift>
(Mac=Options)
key, and then starting Firefox. A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh).

Is the problem still there?
