ALL of my Firefox tabs have disappeared. Is there any way to retrieve them?

Not sure how and when I lost my tabs. I had closed all my programs and shut down my computer, and when I turned it back on and clicked on Firefox, there were no tabs at all.

I forgot that I'm not supposed to shut down Firefox when that happens, but I panicked. When I restarted, still no tabs, of course.

My bookmarks are also gone.

I can see some of my recent history, but that's really no help.

This is a disaster. If I'm really out of luck, is there an add-on I can install that will save my tabs and bookmarks, in case this happens again?

TIA for any suggestions.

It's really dumb that one can close own Main window without warning that too many tabs are closed or there is another window still running! And that's what happened to me: i had Private window in back, closed Main window thinking that i'm closing browser, and then surprisingly saw Private window is still there. As any ordinary user who already lost tabs in past i panicked and closed the Private window too. Started Firefox once again hoping for restore, but it opened with clear window and obviously there was no "Restore session" button in Menu, as i have "Auto restore" ON in settings.

I started to search for manual way, found descriptions with manual renaming/coping backups from sessionstore-backup folder. Like these= https://support.mozilla.org/de/questions/1275314 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1310742 But however i tried to copy and rename - each start Firefox ignores that, clears backup folder and again clear window. Lucky i thought about coping those recover. and previous. files from sessionstore-backup folder after first browser close, so they are safe. And i'm sure my tabs are still there = checked it with https://www.jeffersonscher.com/res/scrounger.html.

So yeah, i have at least some way to get back tabs, but i'm really angry and curious to know WHAT is forbidding me to restore that file after manual rename??!

select/focus on multiple tabs to manipulate with keyboard

Hi, I would like to know how to use the keyboard to select, move, group, bookmark, load, and close multiple tabs with the keyboard all without loading the unloaded tabs. I've recently started using Tree Style Tabs add-on and I wish I could use the keyboard when doing these tasks. I've read somewhere about a firefox-native function that should allow this to happen by enabling in userChrome.css profile: .tabbrowser-tab {

  -moz-user-focus: normal !important;

} but it doesn't work... anyone able to work with tabs efficiently using keyboard only?

Thanks.

Mailto is not working in tab share

I have my mailto set up for outlook. ONCE AGAIN, when I am logged into firefox, and I am on a tab I need to share for work, I select SHARE, and the message shows the option for OUTLOOK. I click OUTLOOK button and next message says "CHOOSE WHICH ACCOUNT TO SEND THE EMAIL FROM" (which is ridiculous) but provides NOTHING TO SELECT FROM. Constant searching on the internet and community to solve firefox problems leads to old solutions where instructions do not even apply anymore. I really do not want to have to move back to Google Workspace just so I can send a tab. Yes I can send a link, copy paste create new email, copy over narrative into subject line -- but why did this stop working? Before the update everything was fine. I am frustrated.
