Firefox Browser fast & private (Android) - Is there any way for me to recover my previous session (open tabs) after my browser crashed

Posted

I had a vast collection of links that I had been meaning to backup in my Firefox browser on my mobile device.

Unfortunately, Firefox crashed and I think I clicked the incorrect button which started a new session instead of restoring the old session.

Is there any way for me to recover my previous session and all of the open tabs therein if I started a new session?

Thank you very much for any assistance you can provide!

Hi grahamjohn.salvaterra, I am not aware of any secret stash of old tab information. What you can see under History might be everything available. To access History, tap the address bar and slide the panels from Top Sites or Bookmarks to History.

Hopefully someone else will have an idea.

By the way, you can set Firefox for Android to always restore your previous tabs to prevent such mishaps. This could slow you down if you always have a lot of tabs open, but... it's an option.

menu button > Settings > Advanced > Restore tabs > Always restore
