This is not so much a question, as an answer that some people desperately need.
Ever since Version 34, Firefox has done a superb job of restoring the tabs that the user has created, either on restarting Firefox (if that option is chosen) or on request.
The details of how to restore tabs are covered in Firefox's basic help online, and even how to deal with several crashes in a row (such as in an addon) ruin the normal backup file are also well explained.
However, today I accidentally pressed Alt+F4 twice on my poorly-designed keyboard and closed my main window, with 93 tabs, and another Firefox window as well. I'm not sure this is exactly what happened, but I lost all 93 of my tabs.
I read many of the postings in which people give various suggestions, but none worked. Every time I restored a version of the sessionstore.js file I saw the same lonely empty tab. Restoring prefs.js did nothing, and neither did making changes in the internal configuration constants.
I tried refreshing/resetting Firefox (which preserves bookmarks), but I still couldn't restore the tabs. It was now clear that the problem was in sessionstore.js (and all its backups) for sure.
I'm writing this for people who must restore their windows or tabs, and don't mind getting technical about it. That was my situation.
The solution was to realize that the sessionstore.js file contains JSON code, which is an efficient way to represent integers and strings arranged in a tree structure.
I figured there must be a JSON editor somewhere, and it turns out there is a great one available online, at www.jsoneditoronline.org . It can read a file on your computer, edit it, then save it back on your computer.
As soon as I viewed sessionstore.js in the editor, it was obvious how easy this was going to be. The top level of the tree is understandable. I simply grabbed the data representing the window with 93 tabs, and dragged it from the list of closed Firefox windows to the list of open windows. This automatically moved the history of each tab, and even the strings entered into forms.
After copying sessionstore.js back to the Firefox profile, I started Firefox one more time. The playing of Pandora signalled that my tabs were back and functioning once again.
Now, editing JSON code is not something that everyone is ready for. And your problem might not be reflected in the JSON tree so simply. But, for technical-minded people who don't want to lose their tabs or windows to a mistake or a crash, this technique can be just what's needed when everything else fails.

Until recently (unless my memory is completely shot), clicking an image to view it at full size would center the image around the point that I clicked. Recently, clicking has defaulted to zooming to the upper-left corner of the image. It can be a real pain to scroll to the portion of the image I actually want to view when I'm looking at a particularly large image. Is there any way to restore the previous behavior?

I upgraded to v37.0.2 and now the top toolbar (the one with the URLs, search in it), has new icon on top toolbar -- far right (looks like server). please see screenshot.
I went to remove it by following my usual method of editting a toolbar 1) clicking the 3 horitzontal line icon (settings i think its called) 2) then clicked customize 3) then drag and drop the unwanted icons off the toolbar. But sadly the little fellow disappeared when i went into that mode. So could not do step 3
Typically if i want to remove something from a toolbar, i do these 3 steps. But this doesnt work for this new thing.
how do i remove this new thing as i dont want it?

How to make address bar behave like search bar? I mean SMART search, as it implemented in Chrome (very comfortable for users)!

For example when I type a word in search bar it begin to give suggestions from search engine, so DON'T HAVE TO TYPE THE WHOLE SEARCH PHRASE!!! The same behavior is in Google Chrome address bar. So in Chrome address bar and search bar are combined into one which is very comfortable for users. Here in Firefox you have two different bars which is meaningless. I used Chrome before, and usually by force of habit type in address bar to search something and have to type the whole phrase there to start search. It's very stupid and make using the address bar for searching useless. Screenshots attached. So, don't we have any add-on or option to merge or combine the bars or to implement smart search in address bar? Thanks.

When I load an image after my letter, the image is much paler than it should be as if there is a white sheen or 'lightening' of the image. The image will not show up BEFORE my letter but it will show up AFTER my letter and as I said, it is very pale.

During installation I was prompted to import a user profile and I accidently chose the wrong one. I uninstalled Firefox thinking I could correct my mistake during the next installation but it automatically used the "wrong" choice I made the first time. How do I correct this? thanks!

It appears that most sites get my location from Mozilla Firefox. It is constantly incorrect and moves around. Today it was someplace in Texas and I live in Ohio. This is a desktop computer and doesn't move. I have set it on several sites and I don't delete my cookies but somewhere along the line it gets changed. It appears it gets changed in my Mozilla Firefox. I know you go off the dsl location or something but it just doesn't work. Even when it gets me in Ohio it's constantly a different city. How can I get a permanent location in Mozilla Firefox or disable the location finder in Mozilla Firefox?

Locking duplicate thread.

Unfortunately I have a font rendering issue using Firefox 37.0.2 under Windows 7. Fonts in websites look pixelated and are not displayed as crisp as in other browsers. I found another thread feauring a similiar problem but unfortunately, none of the advices there worked for me.
Here is my troubleshooting information. Thanks a lot for your help!
