How can I restore my closed tabs when I have no sessionstore.bak?

I recently lost my session that had a lot of tabs (Version 20.0.1).

I have "Show my Tabs from last time" checked. A system crash do to a thunderstorm caused the computer to shut off. When I loaded it back up, I had no tabs, only the Mozilla homepage.

I have no sessionstore.bak and had restored the Mozilla files in Program Files (x86), AppData/Local and AppData/Roaming. My sessionstore.js is not doing anything to my tabs. I restored it to last night. Should I restore it to days prior or is there another solution to get my tabs back? I'd rather not start from nothing again.

Solved. For whatever reason the sessionstore.js was messed up, and did not save my tabs. By restoring to a file from the 4/16, I got most of the tabs back, granted, I did lose some, but at least I have what I have.
