Why is Firefox NOT restoring more than 5 tabs every time I turn on my laptop!

Posted

I used to have as many as 30 tabs open at one time and every time I would turn on my laptop there they were. About 3 weeks ago, that all stopped. Now, I'm lucky if I get 5 tabs to open up. I've tried "restore Firefox" which is a waste and on the Options page all relevant checks are checked. So what's the problem. I'd really like ALL my tabs to be restored every time I open Firefox. Thank you, Alice

Hi Tealady24, sorry to hear about this problem. The just-released Firefox 67.0.2 update contains a fix for one incomplete session restoration bug, but I couldn't tell you for sure whether it will fix yours.

As an emergency workaround, or possibly to integrate into your workflow going forward, you could consider adding a session management extension. These are the ones I'm aware of that you might investigate/try out:

Thank you for the links. The Session Sync link seems to be restoring my tabs every time I start my laptop. It has to be a recent update that did this but I'm appreciative of the help you gave me. Thanks again!
