I had so many problems with it, I went through downloading different "session save" add-ons, I know what solution you guys will give me, I've done most of the posts' instructions, this is more of a complaint post.

When Windows boots up and you had Firefox open before you shut down last time, it will open anew, automatically, with your previous session, but it's on the end of the list of things that launch on startup.

Forgetting you had it on and clicking the browser again, will open a new session with the home screen instead of the previous session, then when actual session Firefox launches it's a 50/50 whether it will be in home screen as well, or actually in your previous session. Now here is the fun part. If you close the new window with just the home tab, that will now become the latest session, so your previous one will be deleted.

How to get around that? Move your home tab into your session instead of closing the window, it works 100% of the time... But can we, not start a new session if you close the home screen, or if you close just 1 tab it doesn't count as a different session. I dunno, just throwing ideas out there.

Hope this reaches those with the same issue, or people in positions to fix the issue, if anyone wants to use session saving add-ons, I took fancy to Tab Session Manager and Easy Session Manager, though not perfect, I don't advise for over 150 tabs.

I'll try to be as active on this thread as I can be, thanks for reading through! :>

Sorry to rub salt into old wounds but this quote from a 2014 support post expresses my feelings exactly:

"What's the point of a 'tab' if there's no tab? Text floating around at the top of the page is not a tab."

My Sessions and Session Boss know I have all my tabs open presently. I can't see the tabs & I can't right click a bookmark and see a 2nd tab open. I had the tabs at the top and just under the bookmarks bar. Now it is just one long blank bar. I disabled and then re-enabled proton, which is the worst upgrade experience ever. I changed to a simple theme, still no tabs. I downloaded the previous version 88, but it will start a new profile. I just want where I was 2 hours ago. I'll attach an image of the left upper screen with the blank tab bar.

System: MSI B640 Tomahawk. I5 10600KU 32GB RAM

Video: MSI 3070 X3

System Drive: 250GB fast Samsung SSD, with 50% free.

System OS: W10Pro_x64 21H1, Defender, no Firewall, no extra AV. Firefox_93.0_x64

Network: TYPE: Dedicated FIBER LAN Provider: Telenet Account Type: FIBER_200 Plus +


Addons: Adblock + µblock FBPurity Block Sender New Tab Override Cookie Manager and Cookie quick Manager Auto-High-Quality for youtube Ant Downloader Video Downloadhelper Cute Save Button WebP Image Converter Translate Web Page

Additional Information: Open Pinned Tabs: In between 25 and 60, depending on my current activities.

Tried: Disabling each add-on until all were off. Safe Start. Nothing helps.

Understandings: 1) No browser is made to run up to 60 open tabs (possibly even more)!!! 2) I run a "plethora" (compared to most users) if add-ons; these also bring the use speed down. 3) Resource used: 2GB (with "mere 30 pages" open.

BUT: DESPITE that: I ALSO understand that, considering my system and Network Type, it should not even be problematic with 200 pages open at once. 2GB over 32GB of RAM? Not the slightest issue (and it often runs at 4GB RAM in use). My CPU never runs half high, even when I have like 60 pages open: Should not be an issue then either. My Video Card has plenty resource over as well when at highest for me usage." Again, it should be no issue. My Fiber Netware? Telenet BVBA, Mechelen Test results: Ping: 5ms Jitter: 2ms Download: 904.2 Mbps Upload: 038.3 Mbps Not the best, not the worst, but for simple browsing, more than, I would assume, plenty.

So, what gives, what is the issue? No extreme strain on the system, no background high-resource issues, sure: one or two add-ons in Firefox but these as well do not strain my system, no AV issues, no Firewall issues (I turned that off, I fail to get the need for one as a house-dog-tree user), yet slow performance. Also, while 30'ish tabs running, 2GB used of RAM? My my, what the hell do they do as Site Admins to have these amounts (and NO, I do not do porn, thank you.  :P I am well aware of other people having insane issues surfing porn, as I helped many of these folks)? Sure, Deviant is a larger one that is open, being a graphical site, but like Quora, FB, Hot- and G-Mail and similar, these ain't, so to get a 2GB usage is weird, I would assume. I said, assume: yes, I am not specifically an internet know-all, I know of networking as a former NOVEL Netware Supervisor under UNIX (also Spupervisor), but Networking in a company is not the same as internet.

So, what is going on, why is my browser so slow? Having turned of all and 1 page open it's lightning fast, but now ... So, it is the open tabs, and the add-ons, though when turned off, I see no real difference. Brings it to tabs. How come, it is this "heavy", even for my system, please?

Thank you. Xog.

Woke up this morning, opened up Firefox and the Trolls have been busy rearranging things during the night. My profile manager disappeared, but I was able to fix that. Now my tabs are out of place and I cannot find what to do to put the Tabs back on bottom, "The way they Should be". Help, please.

Also, I am not real computer literate, so draw pictures if necessary.

The last 2 times I've had to restart my laptop unexpectedly (ie not shut down properly), Firefox has loaded tabs from a month or so prior which means I lose recent tabs. Anything I can do to keep the automatic session restore more up to date? Couldn't find anything in settings that might apply.

Help, how can I go BACK to the last version of Firefox?? I HATE Version 89. Not only do the new tabs all blend in with each other because they're all the same color, but they're placed lower in the screen and add a strip of unused dead space along the top of screen, which means the content I want to see is all pushed down into a smaller, squished space. Arg - already getting high blood pressure trying to navigate it!

Until the recent update I never had trouble restoring tabs after closing Firefox. My Preferences (called Settings now ?) are checked to open previous windows and tabs.

I looked at help on this topic, at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-do-i-restore-my-tabs-last-time but the instructions would not work.

When I went to the menu/history, the Recently closed tabs option was grayed out and there is no entry for Restore previous session.

Is this a change in the latest version or a bug of some kind? Thanks.

Earlier today I changed my settings in "Privaty & Security" to "Clear history when Firefox closes". In that setting I selected to only delete "Browsing and download history."

I assumed this would just delete my browsing history from the URL bar, but now after I closed Firefox, it also deleted all my tabs!! There were many important tabs that I don't want to lose. But I also can't find them under 'recently closed tabs', and I also tried a solution from this forum, namely to find the recovery file and upload them to https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/scrounger.html -- but they don't contain my old tabs either!

Is there still something I can do to recover my lost tabs??

The option to restore tabs and windows is no longer working for me. I normally have a dozen tabs I work thru every day. Yesterday when I shutdown Firefox, all those tabs were there. Today when I open Firefox it only had to single Firefox default homepage. Checking under History there is no option to restore previous tabs, and the recently closed tabs was empty.

To test, I opened an IMDB page and pinned it. I then went to Wikipedia. This gave me a pinned and unpinned tab. I shutdown Firefox via the "X" to close the window. When I restarted Firefox there was only the default homepage. Neither IMDB nor Wikipedia showed up under recently closed tabs and no option to restore the previous session was available.

I have operated Firefox this way for several years. I don't know why this behavior is no longer being supported.

Hi,

I'm currently using firefox V.89.0.2 (64-bit). I tried making a file using the scrounger that contained the tabs I wanted but whenever I tried replacing files in my session store backups it just gave me the same tabs and pages that I have open currently.

When I click on the 3 bar menu under history the only options are recently closed tabs, recently closed windows and clear recent history. There is no restore a previous session option. How can I properly decompress the file I want to use and fix this problem?

It's a lot of tabs and the file it produces is quite large and I don't know how to go about it. Thanks a lot for any help and input, it is much appreciated.

But, the little house symbol for the Homepage Tab is missing. It isn't even available where the choices for Menu Bar appear. I did not cause this problem. My older pc, also Win 10 is perfectly O.K. Any "Help" just brings me back to the older information from 2011.

Today, after I tried to uninstall some mouse drivers leading to a freeze and reboot, my firefox upon starting lost hundreds of open tabs I had, only restoring 1 tab which I am pretty sure I did not even have open. I have already followed solutions in similar problems like this (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1310742), which did not work. First I used shadowexplorer to recover sessionstorebackup files from a restore point on 10/15, most of which did not seem to open anything when using them with the scrounger tool. One of them did open, however it only showed 2 tabs when I would have had hundreds. None of these files did anything when I renamed them to sessionstore.jsonlz4 and placed them in the appropriate folder, even if I deleted the original sessionstore file. Firefox also seemed to be able to recover tabs which I opened after the loss of the original tabs, and renaming and replacing of the sessionstore file until I tried deleting the entire sessionstore backups folder.

I also tried simply doing a system restore back to 10/15, which also failed to help. After doing a system restore, I also tried the whole process of recovering sessionstore backup files and replacing them again, however nothing changed again. I also tried recovering the sessionstore.jsonlz4 file directly and using that to replace my current sessionstore.jsonlz4 file, but that also did not work. The replacement files do seem to contain tabs, as most of them are around a couple MBs large, but after I place them in and restart firefox they get reduced in size back to almost nothing.

The only thing I have not tried is using files from an even older restore point on 10/12, although after having restored to the 10/15 point my 10/12 restore point seems to have disappeared. I can try undoing the restore in order to try to view the 10/12 restore point again, but this process takes multiple hours and I would rather not.

Sometimes when loading a page, and the page is slow to respond, I will see a strange situation: The page is totally blank (the F12 tool does not display page content). The refresh button is gray (disabled), or sometimes although the refresh button enabled, the url textbox is "about:blank", which means I cannot actually reload the page I want to read. I have to re-navigate to the page through the link in the previous link. I'm not sure whether I got across. I hope the issue can be fixed.

Now when Firefox restarts it opens the version with the 5 tabs.  :-( I read about lost tabs in Firefox. I have found a file with the 100+ tabs in it. It is called: upgrade.jsonlz4-20221007134813. But what do I do next to restore Firefox to restart with the 100+ tabs version? Thanks.
