When I reopen Firefox after many tabs were open, it opens only the first few -- and "restore previous session" isn't on the menu.

I am used to having 30+ tabs open in Firefox. When I close and then reopen Firefox, they're all there.

Until yesterday. Now only a half-dozen or so appear. I THINK they're the first half-dozen from my previous session.

Also, I can't find a way to restore the previous session. That option is not in my Menu. My History has lots of previously used tabs, but I can't find the ones I want ... especially the ones I haven't actually used for some time.

I recently bought a new PC which forced me to "upgrade" from Windows 7 to Windows 10. I don't think that's the problem, though. Firefox installed fine and worked fine on the new computer until I powered down a couple of days ago -- then powered back up and restarted Firefox....

I'm not aware of having upgraded to a new Firefox, unless that happened automatically.

I saw a Q&A from Martha that seemed relevant. But she uses a Mac, and I'm on a PC. Also, I didn't understand and couldn't begin to follow the recommendations she was given. I'm a 75-year-old IT ignoramus. I really need very simple step-by-step instructions ... or somebody to take over my computer and solve the problem for me ... or I guess I could wait till one of my grandchildren knows how to help....

In a nutshell, I have two problems: 1. Firefox is no longer restoring all my tabs when I reopen it. 2. I can't find "Restore previous session" to restore my tabs manually.

Thanks!

I've been using two windows lately, each containing several important tabs. Yesterday I opened a couple of extra windows and when I restarted, only one of my main windows was available to restore from the History menu.

I immediately backed up my Firefox profile folder.

Things I tried which didn't work:

• I changed the about:config to show more than 3 previous windows, but the window didn't appear.

• I found a bunch of backups in the sessionstore-backups folder, I took one from a few days ago (titled upgrade.jsonlz4), I copied it into the main folder and renamed it to sessionstore.js, but when I started Firefox, it just loaded the windows and tabs from the previous session.

Session doesn't restore after swapping sessionstore.jsonlz4 out

I've followed the steps listed in many places on this forum and the web. (Thanks to jscher2000 for the excellent tech writing and support.) I've renamed all .jsonlz4 in the <Profile_folder>\sessionstore-backups folder. Sessionstore.jsonlz4 was moved from the <Profile_folder>, recovery-backup.jsonlz4 was copied into the <Profile_folder> and renamed Sessionstore.jsonlz4. Tabs don't restore , the Restore Session button is greyed out, and no tabs are listed in the Show tabs dropdown revealed window.

I know recovery-backup.jsonlz4 has the session I want to restore as I've examined it at https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/scrounger.html. I can restore the tabs from the html file that page generates - but I had about 250 tabs open and that will be tedious. Is there any way to force Firefox to restore that session?

I'm running Firefox 66.0.1 64 bit on Windows 10 Professional x64 v1803 updated with all patches.

No matter how I close Firefox, (X, File->Exit, Menu->Exit), if I start it again it doesn't automatically restore the previous session.

If I click on "Menu->restore previous session" it does restore it.

Of course "Restore previous session" is enabled.

Why did it stop working, what changed?
