How do I start firefox with manual restore? Malware has frozen firefox so I can't change configuration.
Firefox does not show a manual restore window as it would after a crash. I need to start from windows into that manual restore window.
Additional System Details
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/78.0.3904.87 Safari/537.36
My last try offered safe mode or refresh. safe mode loaded the same malware page, so I selected refresh next time. Of course all previous open tabs are lost. Is there any way to recover them other than going back through history manually?
Hi blindleader, you can try converting your old session history file to a page of links and then reload the tabs when needed.
The session history files would now be here:
[Desktop]\Old Firefox Data\profile.folder\sessionstore-backups
My converter is here:
After you load the .jsonlz4 file to the page, click Scrounge URLs to extract the list.
It's also theoretically possible to load your old file in your current Firefox profile, but the results will depend on your settings (and I have to end this message now).
