This is the procedure I followed:

Close firefox

Copy previous.jsonlz4 file to the main level in the profile

It has all the tabs i used to have in it because I made a backup a few days ago

Rename the file to sessionstore.jsonlz4

restart firefox

I get the same single tab I had before i did this

when i go to history tabs, all that is there is the single tab i currently have

Appreciate your help/gary

You can look at this tool to inspect a compressed jsonlz4 sessionstore file to see if the file has the lost tabs. This tool works locally, no uploading done.

Thanks for your reply

Yes the scrounger tool shows I have the missing tabs

As per previous message, my problem is getting it to load

Did you check "History -> Restore Previous Session" and "History -> Recently Closed Windows/Tabs" ?

I assume you did not understand my previous post

what i was trying to say was

1. "History -> Restore Previous Session" and "History -> Recently Closed Windows/Tabs" ? gives the tabs/windows opened AFTER losing the original settings

2. i have copied the saved previous file as described above but firefox does not open it

so i am wondering what to do next

TIA/gary

The scrounger tool can generate an HTML file with the URLs of those tabs, so if you can't restore the sessionstore file then you can try this and open the HTML file with the links in a Firefox tab and open the links in this file.
