Help me! I opened 100 important tabs, Firefox 67 in Windows-7 was set to restore a previous session

Modified by e421399

Chosen solution

If your tabs disappeared and the previous session is not restored:

1. Do not close Firefox! Make a copy of the folder: C: \ Users \ ... \ Firefox \ Profiles \ nrqewkha.default \ sessionstore-backups Enter "about:profiles" in the address bar of the browser, find the 2nd folder sessionstore-backups and also make a copy ..

2. Right-click the previous.jsonlz4, recovery.jsonlz4, recovery.baklz4 files, > then click Properties, > then click the Previous Versions tab. > If there are previous versions of files, you can use the Copy... button to save them to a safe location.

3. Close Firefox Delete sessionstore.jsonlz4 file

4. Replace previous.jsonlz4, recovery.jsonlz4, recovery.baklz4 with previous versions

i have a similiar issue on windows 10. 'Restore previous session' is greyed out and does not open my tabs, nor does 'recently closed tabs' or 'recently closed windows' - yet they did until now.
