I love the refresh last session because my passwords are long and complicated. The first few times this happened it worked if I refreshed the Firefox start page but not any more. Help.

Make sure that you do not run Firefox in permanent Private Browsing mode.


It is possible that there is a problem with the files sessionstore.js and sessionstore.bak in the Firefox Profile Folder.

Delete the sessionstore.js [2] file and possible sessionstore-##.js files with a number and sessionstore.bak in the Firefox Profile Folder.

Deleting sessionstore.js will cause App Tabs and Tab Groups and open and closed (undo) tabs to get lost, so you will have to create them again (make a note or bookmark them).
