Keep my tabs open
I would like to know every single option I could possibly turn on or off, or adjust, or do literally anything to, in order to ensure that my tabs stay the [removed] open. I just returned today to find my 70+ tabs, which I regularly use, completely gone. Normally, if Firefox crashes, it at least has the decency to ask me if I’d like to reopen my tabs, but apparently not this time, for whatever reason. Having to scour through my history to reopen all of my tabs one by one is a frustrating endeavor, and while this is slightly uncommon, it still happens consistently and frequently enough to be a major irritant.
I apologize for my somewhat aggressive tone, but I’m about this close to just using another browser if it keeps pulling this [removed]. So to reiterate, I’d like to know every single possible option I could adjust in some way or to some capacity to ensure that my tabs just stay open.

For the record, I’m currently on iPadOS 16.3.1, and I’m using Firefox 109.0.
I have edited your question as we try to keep things family friendly around here.
I am sorry to hear that Firefox for iOS is crashing. I hope that we can help resolve this for you. Before following the steps below, please make sure that you have updated both your iOS device and Firefox for iOS to the latest versions available.
As a first step, close down many of the tabs that you have open to as few as possible. Does this help reduce the incidence of a crash?
If this does not resolve the issue, open the iOS Settings app, select General then iPhone Storage. Find Firefox and select Offload App. Does this help?
Failing that, we will need to look into this in more detail with some logs from inside your copy of Firefox for iOS. This article will walk you through getting both crash logs and Firefox logs. When you have them, please file them here (a GitHub account is required) so that our developers can look into this further for you.
I hope that this helps.
Maybe I wasn’t clear enough, but my problem is moreso about making sure that my tabs stay open no matter what, rather than just trying to prevent crashes, Firefox closes my tabs on its own even without crashing. I just want to adjust all settings that could make sure Firefox doesn’t close down my tabs without my permission. For example, I turned off an option that apparently sent “inactive tabs” to an “inactive section”, and I looked through my settings to see if there were any other options I could turn on or off to prevent this kinda thing, but to no real avail. That’s what I’m looking for.
