I closed my laptop and left it on standby last night (May 1). I woke up this morning to find it needed to be booted up. Fine. I did this and noticed that I could not restore my session from last night. I have Tab Session Manager installed but the regular Firefox session restore wasn't doing it either. I restored the session but the tabs were wrong. I checked. There is no May 1 record, only April 29th. So I'm missing tabs that I left open on purpose and need to get back to. I checked history to reopen my needed tabs but history was also overwritten.

I realized that the history I saw was from my phone. (iOS 14.5, iPhone 7) I did not tell my phone to sync Firefox.

I added some important bookmarks recently and also need to have access to my browser history on my laptop, as I don't use my phone for more than casual browsing, bringing up recipes while I cook, small things. All my important stuff is done on my laptop.

I tried searching and found something about adjusting Folder Options and looking for index.dat but that was unsuccessful. I thought maybe rebooting the PC might help, but no luck.

I already turned off history sync on my laptop browser and history/bookmark/tabs sync on my phone under sync settings.

Is there some way to get my browser on laptop to where it was yesterday?

Recently having problems with very slow running and freezing so performed a refresh. Now I seem to have lost all my tabs that automatically opened when starting Firefox. Can I get them back from the Old Firefox Data folder that the Refresh process created on my Desktop or do I have to start again and remember all 78 tabs that used to be on my Home Page?

I lost a session with many tabs.

Unfortunately "Restore previous session" was not available. I found a upgrade.jsonlz4 file with a date and time which would have the tabs on it. The size is larger than other ones so I figured this was the best option. I coppied this and pasted it into profiles. Renamed it sessionstore.jsonlz4... Renamed the sessionstore that was in there already to sessionstoreOLD Restarted firefox and when I click on restore previous session button I just get 2 blank tabs.

I then tried the other files which are significantly smaller but still no dice.

I tried the jefferson scrounger and it just gets stuck on "processing"

Any help would be much appreciated.

Please see screenshot of the files I had available to me and saved to a usb.
