Where is the file to "Restore previous session"

I was living on the edge of my computers memory so that if I opened too many tabs FF would crash, (Almost certainly my fault) but there was always the option to "Restore Previous session," which covered my over extension of the open windows and the open tabs. Microsoft upgraded and afterwords the browser wouldn't restore the previous session. I had checked under History>Restore... but that option isn't there now

-->Does anyone know of the name of the file where the restore information is?

--> Or if there is a way to get my windows and tabs back?

Firefox has been great otherwise. Thanks -Donald [removed email from public]
