I happen to get frequent crashes of Firefox.

It may have to do with having many tabs opens at once. (Maybe 150 or more). Is there a way you can verify if too many open tabs is causing crashes?

Then when I restart, and indicate to Firefox to do a restore, many times I will find that new tabs recently opened are not all restored.

Likewise, when I delete tabs, many times on a restore those 'deleted' tabs are 'restored' also!

I have tried to go though the tabs to delete them, thinking that fewer tabs might mean less crashes. But I have given up on that seeing that I often crash in the midst of doing deletions.

It's like a going in a circle.

I have the most recent version of Firefox (29, I think) and when I just went to open my browser, my previous tabs were all gone. I have opened Firefox at least twice since I updated to the latest version and everything has been fine. The option to 'Restore previous session' is greyed out. I have tried going to the sessionstore.js and click on 'Previous Sessions' but it was empty. I tried to go into this folder again and received the follow error:

Script: c:\users\(name)\appdata\roaming\mozilla\firefox\profiles\goa9m6ih.default\sessionstore.js Line: 1 Char: 11 Error: Expected ';' Code: 800A03EC Source: Microsoft JScript compilation error

I had about 20 tabs open and am just sick that I lost them all.  The startup for FF is still set to 'Use my tabs from previous session'.  Help!

After I've installed Firefox 29.01, my tabs and windows from the previous season is not restored. In addition "ctrl+shift+T" hotkey is not bringing back the closed tabs.

Under Options/General "Show my tabs and windows from last time" is selected. Options/Privacy/History is set to "Remember History" Under about:config, "browser.sessionstore.restore_on_demand" is set to "true"

I tried to uninstall and reinstall Firefox 29.01 and 30 beta 6. Same results. I installed no extensions during these trials.

When I check my profile folder, I see that sessionstore.js or sessionstore.bak are not created, neither while Firefox is running nor after I exit. I have tried with a new profile as well. Same problem with both profiles.

Firefox 39.0 just installed on my computer and now every time I close out of firefox and then open it again my previous session comes back up automatically. This has not happened previously and I do not think that I changed any setting to get it to do this. How do I get Firefox to stop opening up my previous session?

"Restore previous session" sometimes only restore partial Tabs and Windows.

Hi guys, I'm a desktop Firefox user for many years now and am currently using version 39 on Windows 8.

I realized on some rare occasion (10% of less of the time), the "Restore previous session" button only partially restore the Tabs and Windows from my previous session.

For example, normally I have at least 4 windows of Firefox opened (each window having 10 Tabs say for example). To rephrase it, it's basically 40 Tabs spread on 4 separate Firefox windows. Now usually when I end my session and restore it the next time, 90% of the time all 4 windows (and 40 Tabs) will comes back.

But on rare occasions, one of the window will not every come back. Meaning only 3 windows comes back. The other window with all it's Tabs will be gone.

I find it quite strange. It had happened to me before on slightly older version of Firefox and windows 7.

Even though it happened not very often but it's kind of a problem because one of the window might contain really useful Tabs.

I would appreciate if anyone with any ideas or suggestions would kindly come forward and share it with me. Thank you so much !

I just closed Firefox and open again ( click Mozilla Firefox ) and then I was surprised. I just saw the home page. Mozilla didn't say me anything about crash etc.. I use this browser with selected preference (show my windows and tabs from last time) for months. However this thing happened for the first time. This happened about one hour ago. I looked a lot but I didn't find any solution or a program. Please help me how I can solve this problem. I lost about 600 tabs :/

Hi there,

I had a number of tabs, maybe 40-50 open on my Mozilla browser and then a combination of the computer crashing and the update meant that the next time i restarted firefox, it didnt give me the option to restore my previous session. I have done updates before/laptop has crashed before and it has been fine.

Ive gone to the History tab.. And there is nothing.. Only has a history of what i have done today.

I have looked on your troubleshooting page, gone to the folder which has sessionbackup but there is nothing there (apart from what it has saved today)

I dont understand how this can be. Please, please help me. Would you be able to advise me on where to look or how to restore the tabs? Is there somewhere that i can go in windows maybe? Please, there are some articles, websites, that are incredibly important to me and I really like to restore them if at all possible.

If there is any way in which you can help/advise: I would be most grateful.

I have used Firefox for years and have loved it. I have it on my HP desktop, my MS Surface Pro and on my Android phone. It works perfectly on the phone but will not function on either my Surface Pro or on my HP desktop. I have removed the sync and have reloaded the app numerous times. Most recently it didn't reinstall my favorite toolbar so I am flummoxed. I just upgraded to Win10 and downloaded the new version but the same thing happens.

Help! I really like Firefox but can't continue this way.

I just re-opened Firefox after closing it with several dozen tabs open, and it made no apparent effort to bring them back. The traditional button has not appeared, and the option to do so under "History" is greyed out. A previous answer pointed me to the "profile folder", but I have no idea how to do anything useful there, and anyway, there's no "sessionstore.js" that I can see. Or is that the problem, somehow?
