Session restore fails when using multiple profiles

Geplaatst

We use several FF profiles, one for each family member, on the same computer, usually they are open at the same time. Now if FF crashes for some reason or there is a power outage, sometimes session restore only works for one profile that is restarted first, while the others lose all the tabs that were open last time. Now I have a feeling that this is much more likely to happen if the browser was recently updated (it happened several times on the first restart after the update). I reckon that this might have something to do with the session restore only restoring one of the opened windows (which, as I understand, is now fixed). In each of the profiles the automatic session restore is set on.

Hi dr..... just try this....


   Close the Firefox browser. Make sure no instance of the browser is running.
   Open the profile folder and rename the current session file sessionstore.jsonlz4 to sessionstore-backup.jsonlz4.
   Open the sessionstore-backups folder of the profile.
   Rename recovery.jsonlz4 to recovery-backup.jsonlz4.
   Rename recovery.backlz4 to recovery-backup.backlz4.
   Copy the session restore backup that you want to restore, e.g. previous.jsonlz4.
   Go back to the root directory of the Firefox profile.
   Paste the copied file to the root folder.
   Rename it to sessionstore.jsonlz4.
   Restart the Firefox browser.
   Firefox might pick up the session automatically. If it does not, press the Alt-key on your keyboard and select History > Restore Previous Session.

I know how to do this, but this does not prevent it from happening again, which is what I am looking for.
