I have a lot of tabs open. They are at least 300, but I'm not certain, they could be a lot more than that. Because sometimes in the past I have lost my open tabs due to computer crashes etc and it took me awfully long searching history and reopening them, for about a year now I have been copying from mozilla's default folder all files with sessionstore and places in their names to another folders and flash drives. Some months ago (I think after an update) Inoticed that there was no sessionstore.js in mozilla's folder anymore and that there was a new folder named sessionstore-backups. I kept on copying ths sessionstore.bak files and this folder. In the last few weeks every time I start mozilla instead of throwing me in the tab I was on the last time I was using it, mozilla shows me the home page as the first tab, everything is stuck(I can't click anything with the mouse) and all my tabs are being shown as "new tab". After about a minute a message pops up, saying that a script of action has stopped working (or something like that, my windows are not in English and I don't know how to translate it exactly) . This window gives me three options: continue, troubleshoot or pause script. I press continue and after a few seconds the tab I was on with the home page disappears, the selected tab becomes the one I was using the last time I used mozilla and all my tabs appear with their correct names (and not marked as "new tab"), everything stops being stuck and mozilla functions properly from there on. today someone else used my computer and started mozilla. I don't know what he did exactly but when I later started the pc an mozilla everything started like I described before, but this time the "a script of action etc." window was having a different error. I pressed again continue but then everything stop being stuck but remained as was, the selected tab being the home page and all of my tabs marked as "new tab". When I tried to open one of the tabs all I got was a blank page. My first impulsive reaction was to close mozilla and restart it, but the same thing happened. I then opened mozilla's folder (from about:support) and saw that there was a sessionstore.js file in there small in size, so I suspect that what I have now is a sessionstore.js file with about 300-400 of "new tab" tabs stored in it. Two days ago I copied from mozilla's folder (in case something like this happened) the following folders and files: [folders]: bookmarkbackups, crashes, datareporting, extensions, gmp, gmp-gmpopenh264, sessionstore-backups, storage and [files]: places.sqlite, places.sqlite-shm, places.sqlite-wal, prefs, sessionCheckpoints.json, sessionstore.bak, sessionstore.bak-20140923175406.
Please tell me I can restore my tabs with those somehow, I don't want to be searching for them through one and a half year of history...
Thank you in advance.
I have windows 8.1 and mozilla 35.0
