Where is the history for restoring pages after forced quit?

Posted

I've did a force quit weeks ago and restarted. The restore tab with all its choices showed in the browser as it should. I wanted the option to go back and open the previously restored ones but haven't yet, and have just been browsing in new tabs. I accidentally quit Firefox and when I restarted nothing is restorable. Is there any way to restore that tab with all my past history, or is it permanently overwritten by a new session history? Thanks, Dan

Hello Dan.

Granted you didn't close Firefox in the meanwhile (because that would overwrite the previous session), and the session restore screen didn't show up, you can access about:sessionrestore in the location bar.

That will allow you to restore the previous session, whether it was forced quit or not.

Hello Dan. Granted you didn't close Firefox in the meanwhile (because that would overwrite the ''previous'' session), and the session restore screen didn't show up, you can access ''about:sessionrestore'' in the location bar. That will allow you to restore the previous session, whether it was forced quit or not.
