Loosing all my tabs

Ok , so wenever the main window of firefox closes before a pup-up ore a nothere session wich was opened bye acident i lose all my tabs of the main window.Now you will say why not look up youre history, some of those tabs were serese of manga ore anime i was waching so i mith not have progresed a page fore one month its prety hard to look all that up in the history(next to inposibele considering how much i browse one day fore work). So is there any way to recover a lost session? its actuly prety anoing wen it happens, i lose a lot of data and its anoing i just downt get it why a onetab session will take supperiorety to a 40+ tabs tession of firefox.

Make it a habit and use File > Exit to close all open windows at once the prevent this. If you use the close X then you only close the current window.

ok what you sed is useful tested it and yes it works if i close the session from exit all instance and tabs are saved so as to avoid losing the main on. but chodent they do a history on the sessions , so that there wood be sonthing like a undo ore restore.... Thats just my opinion it wood be useful Smiley Tongue >>>lost my 40+ Tabs many times and with them the animes manga(losing the names and page) ore othere things i was doing Smiley Sad(((( <<<

Session restore works more reliable if you choose Tools > Options > General > Startup: "When Firefox Starts": "Show my windows and tabs from last time" instead of relying on the Save & Quit dialog.

JediMobius has detailed the only way to get back a lost session. Firefox has backups - you just have to know where to find them. See: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/813545
