Unable to Restore Previous Session

Hello there.....after having to force quit FF for some reason the "Restore Previous Session" option was not available in my history menu. Upon further investigation I also tried typing about:sessionrestore in the url bar and it told me there was not one available. This is very odd as I've done this many times before without any issue. I have probably 100 tabs in 4 windows, of which half are things I really do not want to lose. :-(

Is there a way of reestablishing the previous session or at least a list of the tabs where I could restore them manually? (Going through history is not an option given the time it'll take and how far back some of these go.) I am on Mac OS 10.6 and FF 24 and have backed up the machine in the past two weeks.

Thanks!

You would need to restore a copy of the sessionstore.js file that contains those lost tabs. On Mac you may also have Time Machine backups of the sessionstore.js file.

You can use this button to go to the current Firefox profile folder:


You can backup the session files in the sessionstore-backups folder in the Firefox Profile Folder to make sure not to lose possible important session data.

previous.js (cleanBackup: copy of sessionstore.js from previous session that was loaded successfully)
recovery.js (latest version of the sessionstore written during runtime)
recovery.bak (previous version of the sessionstore written during runtime)
upgrade.js-<build_id> (backup created during an upgrade of Firefox)

You can copy a file from the sessionstore-backups folder to the main profile and rename the file to sessionstore.js to replace the current file (make a backup copy of the current sessionstore.js).

I have this problem, too. After installing FF 41, FF stopped opening tabs and windows on new session and lost the ability to restore previous session. Please help.
