Tabs seem to all be located in Synched Tabs sidebar; can they be restored without opening each one individually?

Hi fullerwp,

From what I understand you might be able restore tabs under History.

  • Control-Shift-H will open up your Library

Hold shift-click, or hold control click to add the sites you wish to open in tabs based on the below preferences.

  • Today
  • Yesterday
  • Last 7 days
  • This month

Then right-mouse click to give you a list of options where you can Open all in Tabs.

Hope this helps!

Firefox 66.0.1 (64bit) Win10 Home Ed 64it. Crashed yesterday, today upon start I see grayed "Restore Previous Session". However the folder with profile has folder "sessionstore-backups" with these files:

recovery.baklz4 sessionstore.js previous.jsonlz4 recovery.jsonlz4

The sessionstore.js is pretty outdated (in Feb-2017). How can I have my tabs restored?

Found this article copied my 5MB recovery.baklz4 as sessionstore.jsonlz4 to profile's root folder, ran Firefox, saw "Restore Previous Session" enabled, clicked on it but nothing happened. What did I do wrong?
