Firefox cannot seem to remember/reopen my exact tabs/pages from yesterday
Firefox cannot seem to remember/reopen my exact tabs/pages from yesterdays session when starting up my computer daily after previous nites shutdown. (I also use Chrome browser on a 2nd monitor and it restarts, w/o exception, with same tabs/pages EXACTLY as it was when shut down the nite before.)

Seems to mainly happen with Youtube pages ....... it will bring back Youtube tabs from weeks ago and NOT the ones I had loaded when shutdown occurred.
You can check for problems with the sessionstore.jsonlz4 file in the Firefox profile folder that stores session data.
- rename/remove sessionstore.jsonlz4 (sessionstoreOLD.jsonlz4)
You may also have to rename the sessionstore-backups folder.
When sessionstore.jsonlz4 is deleted, you lose pinned-tabs and open tabs and you will have to recreate them, so if necessary make a note or bookmark them. sessionstore.jsonlz4 is only present in the Firefox profile folder when Firefox is closed.
You can use the button on the "Help -> More Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page to go to the current Firefox profile folder or use the about:profiles page (Root directory).
- Help -> More Troubleshooting Information -> Profile Folder/Directory:
Windows: Open Folder; Linux: Open Directory; Mac: Show in Finder
So the last session is being restored with the exception of some tabs like youtube?
Does it still happen with all your extensions disabled?
