Firefox 57 crashed, and pinned tabs are gone after restarting. Where are they?

I had 11 tabs pinned. Firefox 57.0 64-bit froze, and never responded. I had to kill the processes to close it. When I reopened it, all I got was the one unpinned tab - the Mozilla start page. All my pinned tabs were gone. Where did they go, how do I get them back (they're not in today's history), why didn't FF restart with the pages I had open, and why - if they're pinned - don't they come back every time?

Have you gone to the 3 Bar Menu (far right) and clicked and then Restore Previous Session.

It crashed I would think and when something crashes anything can happen. Since it froze as you say and you shut it down there is no crash report to investigate the issue. Most issues can be solved by Updating your Video Card Drivers.

If too much ram was being used try this : Go to the Firefox 3 Bar Menu --> Help ? --> Troubleshooting Information Page and take a look in the Accessibility section if accessibility is set to "true" there. if yes, go to the Firefox 3 Bar Menu --> Options --> Privacy & Security panel and under Permissions check the setting to Prevent Accessibility Services from accessing your browser.

Please let us know if this solved your issue or if need further assistance.

Hi. Thanks for the super quick response. Accessibility - Activated was/is set to False. There is no Restore Previous Session anywhere inside the 3 bar menu.
