Update erased all my open tabs and there's no way to get them back?
Hello community, first of all i must say that i find it disappointing and upsetting that we're left between each other if help is needed, that there isn't actually an official resolution centre, to make a report, file a case and be answered by a Mozilla expert directly whenever and try to resolve it 1 on 1,first reason to dump Firefox.
2nd reason, we're in year 2022, yes, we've come a long long way in technology and software development and there's still NO option to make a BACKUP, a clone of your current Firefox profile or have an option for automatic backup from time to time or at least before you do an update etc.
I was updating my Firefox and didn't have enough space so after it downloads the update just won't install it. No worries, easy, freed space and let's try again, success....Or not, as I've LOST all my opened tabs, just gone. Yes sync is on, logged in, activated but what's really point of it??? I think most of us saw it as something in a way of an online backup of our tabs, bookmarks, logins, history, add-ons etc. somewhere in some cloud if something goes wrong to be able and restore stuff not just sync between devices which is also confusing and not syncing asking from/to what to sync between devices.
Why is it so difficult to add a backup option online or on devices storage? I'd literally give anything to be able and get my tabs back but it's impossible as the

Yes, we are mainly volunteer contributors here, as are many people that build and support Firefox and other open source projects.
Firefox Sync is designed to be used to sync bookmarks, user credentials and other data between copies of Firefox. It is not designed to be an online backup or cloud storage.
