When I close the browser and then reopen it all my previous tabs are gone and it goes to my homepage. I have it set so the tabs should be open. I'm running version 30, but it had this issue with version 29. I haven't added any add-ons yet since restarting and I'm still having the issue so it's not an add-on. I have restarted as well as uninstalled and reinstalled firefox and I'm still having this issue.

I see SQLite temp files (sqlite.wal), so it looks that Firefox was running while making this screenshot?

Is the sessionstore.js still there when you close Firefox and when you start Firefox?

You can make a backup copy of the sessionstore.bak and sessionstore.js files.

When Firefox is started then Firefox renames the sessionstore.js file to sessionstore.bak to make it possible to restore the previous session at any time during the current session (History > Restore Previous Session) and creates a new sessionstore.js file for the current session.

Is Firefox creating a sessionstore.js file in the Firefox profile folder?

You can use this button to go to the currently used Firefox profile folder:

  • Help > Troubleshooting Information > Profile Directory: Show Folder (Linux: Open Directory; Mac: Show in Finder)

I can't really follow you. ^^;

Can you confirm that there is a sessionstore.js file with the correct time stamp in the Firefox profile folder or is this file absent?
