In FF 17.0.1 I have several bugs to mention. I am only able to open bookmarks by right clicking them and selecting Open In New Tab from the drop down menu. I am unable to open a new tab by clicking on the new tab button or by clicking open new tab from the FF drop down menu at top of browser. Also, none button work in FF, such as Home, Back, Forward, or refresh. This is so aggravating!!

The font for my tabs (as well as my address bar and firefox button) have become clear. You can see my desktop or whatever through it. I have rebooted, checked if it was my persona, checked if a addon to alter the address bar font would fix it with no luck.

Here is what it looks like: http://i.imgur.com/8yMISWC.png

When I was quitting Firefox last time, Adobe flash tried to open a tab to download something, so I just forced quit. Now, I've just opened Firefox and it didn't restore my previous session as it usually does, and that option is not available in the History menu. I've looked in the profile folder in Finder but I don't think there are any .bak files from before I restarted it today. I had a lot of really important tabs in this session and I really need to get it back!

I recently lost my session that had a lot of tabs (Version 20.0.1).

I have "Show my Tabs from last time" checked. A system crash do to a thunderstorm caused the computer to shut off. When I loaded it back up, I had no tabs, only the Mozilla homepage.

I have no sessionstore.bak and had restored the Mozilla files in Program Files (x86), AppData/Local and AppData/Roaming. My sessionstore.js is not doing anything to my tabs. I restored it to last night. Should I restore it to days prior or is there another solution to get my tabs back? I'd rather not start from nothing again.
