I'm using Firefox on Android 11 (the latest Android update available on my phone, Pixel 2XL) and it has suddenly started crashing immediately upon opening the app.
I last updated Firefox to the latest version about a week ago, and it has worked fine since then until the crashes started this afternoon. I hadn't updated any other apps when the crashes began and had made no other changes to the phone or Firefox settings.
I've tried clearing the app cache and restarting the phone several times, but it didn't help.
I know I should try uninstalling and reinstalling, but I just want to be able to retrieve my open tabs before doing so. Unfortunately, when I tried to access them from Firefox on my laptop, they didn't seem to be synced and didn't show up even though I previously had sync enabled.
In the brief moment when the app opens before it crashes, I can see the open tabs are still there, so I imagine it's still stored somewhere.
The Firefox app crashes right when I open it, so I'm not able to enable sync or access the settings. I'm also not able to get the report from about:crashes for the same reason.
Is there any other way I could retrieve the tabs I had open? Alternatively, is the crash issue something that could eventually resolve on its own, or at least with the next Firefox update?
Thank you in advance for any help.
