Since I updated to version 92 on sep/10/2021, can't restore session and all my bookmarks are gone, in windows 10 64 bits.

I'm going to roll back to version 91.0.2.

Just till this is fixed.

Did rolling back fix the issue?

. . . can't restore session

You may have corrupt sessionstore [v56] sessionstore.jsonlz4 file(s). Delete all sessionstore* files and the sessionstore-backups folder.

Don't delete the files if you need to rescue any data from them, just move them out of the profile folder to some location where Firefox doesn't look for them. You can try to read out their contents using this tool: https://www.jeffersonscher.com/res/scrounger.html

Hi FredMcD,

I backed the sessionstore files and my bookmarks were up and running! I encounter that the sessionstore.jsonlz4 is of over 57 Mbs, as I like to have tons of sessions to restore in various old tabs...

Thaks for you help.
