Firefox 39.0 just installed on my computer and now every time I close out of firefox and then open it again my previous session comes back up automatically. This has not happened previously and I do not think that I changed any setting to get it to do this. How do I get Firefox to stop opening up my previous session?

Since the last update, Firefox almost always opens to a 'can't restore previous', but restores correctly after selecting 'restore previous tabs.' Also occurs with add-on's disabled.

Typically, browser screen flashes for a second on start-up, quickly closes and then reopens with the error message described above.

Only other programs resident are Onedrive, Avast (free version), Malware Bytes (free version).

My firefox crashed and I guess it reset itself or something because when I opened it, the restore session option just came up blank. There were no pages to restore or anything. Anyways, I used Recuva and I have the recovery.bak file with all my lost tabs/windows in it. But I can't find any way to restore it.

I've tried renaming the recovery.bak to sessionstore.bak and replacing the file, but that didn't work. I've also tried editing all of the restore & session files with that as well. But when I open firefox, it comes up with the main homepage and the session restore option comes up, but that's blank! So it's still not restoring my pages. I don't know what to do and I could really use some help.

Thanks.

Power went out and now FF has none of my tabs from previous session. I'm not positive and maybe someone was trying to help in my absence but I don't think I restarted FF twice without saving a backup copy of the .js lot. The last time I went through this was in Dec. 2016. I don't want to have to go there to restore. HELP

Since I upgraded from Win 7 to Win 10 about 2 weeks ago Firefox quite a few times has lost all tabs and tab groups after I close and reopen it. I keep having to replace sessionstore.js with previous.js to restore my tabs. I’ve reinstalled Firefox at least once or twice and have upgraded it a few times and have the latest version right now. This never did happen with Win 7. Restore previous session is always greyed out. Any suggestions?

Three tabs keep opening although closed in previous sessions. That happens whichever method I use to have tabs open from the previous session, i.e. making the preference to open tabs from previous session OR to set the preference to a single tab and set the browser in about:config to give me the option to save tabs. The tabs are NOT in history.

The urls of the tabs are as follows : https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/%40import https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/url https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/url

Is there a solution to this problem?

Firefox Quantum 65.0; Windows 10 Pro; Grammarly, OneTab, RES, uBlock Origin

since about a week ago firefox always saves the open tabs and opens them after restarting the browser. It happens automatically and I can't stop firefox from doing so. I want every tab to be closed when I shut down firefox and they shouldn't automatically be reopened.

The box for Session Restore is unchecked and in about:config browser.sessionstore.max_resumed_crashes is set to zero and firefox still automatically restores the sessions

I have Firefox set to restore previous session. After crash, the restore displays the proper number of tabs, but none of them have the url or page name.

I have restarted Firefox in Safe Mode, and here are a few screen shots showing the tabs, and the files I have in the Macbook Finder.

The tabs that were open at the time of the crash appear to be saved in the history, but I'd like to just restore the session before the crash.

How can I do that?

Thanks!

Hi there I had a Firefox session of 30 tabs open this morning, some running for several weeks. When restarting I opened the main home page plus a page about darts (which i dont even like) - and accidentally closed it again before restoring the session.

Upon reopening and attempting the usual 'restore previous session' it now thinks the previous session is the one with just the homepage and the darts story - not my orignial 30 tabs. 

How do I restore the 30 tabs!? Surely there must be a way. I'm not very firefox savy so haven't tried renaming files etc.

Please help F

I have FF quantum 60.0.1 (64-bit) set to "Show your windows and tabs from last time", however, when it starts up, it opens duplicate tabs for some of the tabs. Sometimes 3 of the same tab in different locations on the tab bar. I know which are the dupes because there is no history. Any idea what's causing that?

Since updating to 58.2 over 40 of my users are all expericing the same multiple issues.

Firefox always launches with "Sorry, We're having trouble getting your pages back." even when closing properly and having no other tabs open. (Setting the privacy options as custom and selecting "Clear history when Firefox closes" has solved this issue but it's not ideal for the workplace, users like to have their history.

Firefox is slow and sluggish and often freezes.

If you close firefox and try to launch it again a few seconds later then it wont launch because there's still a version in the background trying to close which can take up to 20 seconds.

The bookmarks toolbar is always hidden on launch. You have to right click and show toolbar to retrieve it everytime.

Because of these issues I've had to put everyone on chrome however I'd really like to get to the bottom of them all to revert back to Firefox.

Thanks

So I launch Firefox, open multiple windows, Firefox crashes because of too many windows. When I reopen Firefox, I get the option to restore the previous session, which opens all of the windows that I had previously opened. Great.

So I launch Firefox, open multiple windows, Firefox crashes because of too many window, I reopen Firefox, have the option to restore the previous session, open multiple windows instead, Firefox crashes, rinse and repeat. Firefox allows multiple levels of "session restore", allowing me to go back several iterations of crashes. Great. This is the ONLY reason why I switched to Firefox several years ago.

But, within the last 6 to 12 months something has changed. Now, I am only able to go back one level of crashes in "session restore" - the additional session(s) simply does not exist. I have Googled multiple times for a solution, but, the closest thing I have found is the "about:config" setting of "browser.sessionstore.max_resumed_crashes". The setting of "0" and "1" makes no difference.

I am currently using Firefox 43.0.4. Why does this functionality no longer work?

Hi there,

I had a number of tabs, maybe 40-50 open on my Mozilla browser and then a combination of the computer crashing and the update meant that the next time i restarted firefox, it didnt give me the option to restore my previous session. I have done updates before/laptop has crashed before and it has been fine.

Ive gone to the History tab.. And there is nothing.. Only has a history of what i have done today.

I have looked on your troubleshooting page, gone to the folder which has sessionbackup but there is nothing there (apart from what it has saved today)

I dont understand how this can be. Please, please help me. Would you be able to advise me on where to look or how to restore the tabs? Is there somewhere that i can go in windows maybe? Please, there are some articles, websites, that are incredibly important to me and I really like to restore them if at all possible.

If there is any way in which you can help/advise: I would be most grateful.

I just re-opened Firefox after closing it with several dozen tabs open, and it made no apparent effort to bring them back. The traditional button has not appeared, and the option to do so under "History" is greyed out. A previous answer pointed me to the "profile folder", but I have no idea how to do anything useful there, and anyway, there's no "sessionstore.js" that I can see. Or is that the problem, somehow?
