I have a windows 7. When I open Firefox, the first tab suggests restore session and when I do restore other tabs open all blank or trying to open. But It doesnt. Also, In Thunderbird, the browser opens But the inbox doesnt and near the cursor there's a blue circle turning.

I went to help=troubleshooting and changing places.sqlite /places.sqlite-shm/places.sqlite-wal to .old

I have also uinstalled and reinstalled. didnt work.

Please please help resolve.

Yes, I did & restarted. Yet as soon as it opens it says "restore session" and when I click that the tabs open but the pages dont load. Example : LinkedIn. I login with username & password ad then the blue line is going left to right without loading the page.

You can check for problems with the sessionstore.jsonlz4 file in the Firefox profile folder that stores session data.

  • delete sessionstore.jsonlz4 and sessionstore.js

When sessionstore.jsonlz4 is deleted you lose pinned tabs and open tabs and you will have to recreate them, so if necessary make a note or bookmark them.

You can use the button on the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page to go to the current Firefox profile folder or use the about:profiles page.

Are you using "Clear history when Firefox closes" to clear any personal data?
