Lately, when I have reopened Firefox, the tabs in my sessions have been out-of-date by a day or more.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?

Firefox dropping sessions - running out of space?

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!

57.0.4 Browser crashed, Recently closed tabs and Recently closed windows are gone, blindsided by the updated FF version. I installed a new Mysession manager plugin but that doesn't restore the ones I lost. Where are the old sessions stored and how can I restore them? The browser is not offering that function any longer! Please understand I'm not a developer or programmer and complex solutions don't work for me.

1) Kept getting bugged to "update FF ASAP" ... so I did (to 52.6.0 ESR) 2) After Update installed, some freaky popup "...choose either Safe mode or Refresh" 3) Chose "Refresh" & re-started FF (yet again!) 4) Now I have NO CLUE about the 14 Tabs that existed & were perfectly accessible BEFORE all of the above. 5) RESTORE window shows NO TABS whatsoever (although it suggests I "Click on one..." that I may think is problematic) 6) HISTORY has those 14 tabs/URL's BURIED SOMEWHERE among the hundreds of other URL's I've since visited & closed

                                      ###  MY QUESTIONS  ###

7) HOW can I now reconstruct those 14 Tabs now Disappeared? 8) WHY am I feeling like a complete IDIOT for having done the "right thing" and Updated FF on my computer?????

Any Helpful and Relevant suggestions, anyone?

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

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?
