Recently my computer crashed and when I re-opened it firefox came up with restore. However, instead of restoring the way I'm used to it working, it restored 1 empty tab. I've tried looking through solutions here but they either didn't work when I tried them or I struggled to make sense of them. I tried looking for direct firefox support with no luck so I'm seeing if this does anything. I managed to salvage 2 files from 4 days ago being my previous file and my upgrade file. Can I restore tabs from between 1 hour ago to 10 days ago with this?

I've been having this issue recently with whenever I open firefox my search engine is reset to Yahoo, so I decided to remove all my addons and and restart firefox to see if the addons where the cause behind it.

To my surprise FireFox only retored the last window that I closed instead of all the Windows I had open at the time.

Those old windows had some very important tabs that I need for an upcoming project.

I've tried opening FireFox again to look for a potential solution but no such luck, I have the found the old recover.bak file that I think has my old browsing data.

C:/Users/username/AppData/Roaming/Mozilla/Firefox/Profiles/9ds7hi8q.default/sessionstore-backups

I would really appreciate any help anyone could give me here, I've tried following the instructions given to other users with no such luck

Why is Firefox not opening an old session in "restore" option?

When I go to the "History" option, then "Show all history" and then "Restore" to a previous session from either yesterday or even a few days/weeks ago (and agree to all my tabs being replaced by that previous session), it doesn't do anything. This option usually works for me and now it doesn't.

I have done hours of searching on how to get this to work and found nothing. More hours of searching other options on how to find previous sessions with .js files and get to a point in the instructions where I am lost and I understand absolutely nothing anymore.

- I have important tabs that need restoring asap!!

Can someone help please?

Sessions backed up in Session Manager are out-of-date.

Lately, when I have reopened Firefox, the tabs in my sessions have been out-of-date by a day or more. The same is true for every other backup session.

I have Firefox 50.0.2 on Windows 10. Firefox was closed normally. Session Manager has been set to create a new backup every 10 minutes.

Another new issue is session restore reopening every tab at the start of my session instead of opening them only when the tab is accessed, as was the case previously. Is there any way to disable this feature?

How do i restore tabs from the session previous to the previous session?

Hi there I had a Firefox session of 30 tabs open this morning, some running for several weeks. When restarting I opened the main home page plus a page about darts (which i dont even like) - and accidentally closed it again before restoring the session.

Upon reopening and attempting the usual 'restore previous session' it now thinks the previous session is the one with just the homepage and the darts story - not my orignial 30 tabs. 

How do I restore the 30 tabs!? Surely there must be a way. I'm not very firefox savy so haven't tried renaming files etc.

Please help F

This has been going on for a few months, but I have a strange bug where Firefox will start instantly closing sessions. If I clear my cookies it will fix the issue temporarily, but a couple days later it will come back. It's almost like it's running out of space in one of my local .sqlite caches. I've particularly noticed that this happens for a specific domain where I regularly access lots of subdomains (100+ subdomains of a single domain) - it might be coincidental, but I thought that there might be some single-domain cookie storage limit, but from what I've read that limit should be very large and none of the stored cookies are very large and I don't seem to be having this issue in Chrome which - as far as I can tell - has the same single-domain cookie storage limit. Is there a limit to the number of cookies that it will store for a single domain (across subdomains)? Any insight would be much appreciated!
