After upgrading to FF 84, my previous sessions are no longer saved and restored unless I restart in Safe Mode.

- I have Restore previous session checked in Preferences.

- I have opened new windows and tabs and one by one disabled and restored every add-on that I have had enabled and quit and restarted each time, until every single add-on has been disabled, and still the previous sessions are not saved and restored.

- I have looked in the sessionstore-backups folder with each restart, and there is never any file for the previous sessions in it.

- Again, even when there are absolutely no add-ons enabled, the previous session is not saved and not restored.

- Again, only when I restart in Safe Mode is the previous session saved and restored.

What is the solution?

I had the "Restore previous session" checked at the Startup, so every time I closed and reopened Firefox my previous tabs used to appear. However, this last time I closed Firefox, when I reopened I saw Firefox is installing update message (81.0.2), then none of the previous tabs came back.

Startup still has the same 'restore previuos session' checked.

"Recently closed tabs" is grayed out.

How do I get my tabs back?

Thanks.

I had a Windows 10 crash. When I relaunched Firefox, it updated me with old tabs. When I checked sesionstore-backups, I found that my previous.js and recovery.js date back to 2017. Nothing I do seems to lead to their being updated.

Oddly enough, the tabs restored were not from 2017 but from earlier this month, probably when I last rebooted my PC. Two files in the profile have been updated:

upgrade.jsonlz4-20200403064753 on 4/7/2020 recovery.baklz4 in real time.

So, my two questions are: 1) Going forward, can I rename recovery.bklz4 to previous.jsnolz4 and use that to restore my previous session? 2) is there any way within Firefox to manually force it to update previous.jsnolz4

Hi, currently I opened many tabs in Firefox with tree style tab. Recently I found that my session not restore to the point I closed it but the specific time. (In this case, the session I close on 2020/03/12). For the tab I opened/closed after that seems not be stored. I also checked and found that the sessionstore.jsonlz4 was not updated. As my knowledge that this file should be removed when Firefox executed but it seems not. I may wish to ask if there is any solution to fix this problem while keep my current open tabs. Thanks for the help.

I am running Firefox 65.0.2 in Windows 7 Professional 32-bit. It is 8:16PM on 03/18/2019. The recovery files have timestamps:

    03/14/2019  09:36 AM         2,124,762 recovery.baklz4
    03/14/2019  09:37 AM         2,124,716 recovery.jsonlz4

Why is Firefox not writing a new file when I open or close a tab? Is there anything I can do right now do get diagnostics on this problem? I believe that tomorrow I may be installing Windows patches and have to reboot, and restarting Firefox will lose all diagnostic data. Thanks.

Under options, I have Firefox set to restore my previous session when it reopens. Most of the time it does this just fine, but twice this summer it has lost all of my previous tabs. I read about, and found the recovery.jsonlz4 and recovery.baklz4 files, but they include only the tabs from the current session, not any of the former tabs. I often have dozens to hundreds of tabs open, and this is mightily annoying. Any ideas why this happens, how to prevent it in the future, and is there any hope of finding those lost tabs? I'm strongly considering ditching Firefox for another browser.

load only current tab, stop all others, especially on (re)start

Where in the settings or in the about:config can one set FireFox to load only the current tab, stop all others from any activity/loading, especially on (re)start?

I have been using the "restore session" feature along with a setting in Firefox to load all tabs simultaneously in the background for a while now and it has worked great. But after the latest update to Firefox about two weeks ago (now version 67.0), Firefox only loads 10 tabs of the previous session, instead of all of them like it used to. I need about 30 tabs for work, so this feature made it very convenient. Any suggestions? Thank you.

After doing an update it would have been nice to receive a notification to let me know that I should restart the browser but instead I am being prevented from opening a link in a new tab just because I have updated the browser among other things in the background. This is will only serve to discourage me from doing an update while I'm using the browser. Now it says that I could have restored the session but as you tell by the little purple mask in the top right corner of the image I've uploaded- I was using the browser in Private-mode so that won't happen and I will get a "Firefox is having trouble restoring your tabs" message if I did a reboot. I had typed whole bunch of stuff in one tab and I had ended up loosing that because I couldn't open a link in a new tab (using Ctrl+left-Click). Now even if a person isn't in Private-mode there are still plenty of reasons for not doing a reboot right after an update like it's possible that a person has to wait for internet access forcing a reboot like this will only make people curse the developers. In my case obviously I was in a private session and I wanted to finish working on something before doing a reboot and in the mean time I should be able to use the browser normally like would be able to use it if I hadn't done an update. In short people shouldn't be prevented from opening a link in new tab just because they've updated the browser. That should go without saying.

Just to mess with the user there's a nice little cartoon on the left with an unplugged extension cord.

please help i am panicking so much right now i would type in all caps but i know that wont help

my session has a very very large amount of tabs and it only just started slowing down in the past 24 hours. ive never had trouble before today, but i just restarted and it only loads a completely blank page with the tab name New Tab

there is no option to restore previous session, and both restore closed tabs and restore closed windows options are empty in the library section

ive opened 2 windows and refuse to close either because im afraid it will completely remove all of my tabs forever. i will only restart in safe mode if i get a really good explanation and reason. anything that sounds risky i would really need a good explanation before i do it please

ive done verify integrity in the about:places section i think its called. ive looked around for my problem and ive submitted some recent crash report which could've been when the browser lag started

Thank you

When I reload Firefox after my computer crashes or freezes and needs to be restarted, Firefox will offer to restore my previous session. Half the time it works perfectly, but the other half it loads tabs from almost a week prior. There does not appear to be any rhyme or reason as to why one happens over the other.

For some reason it updated without asking/notifying me about it. Then after it restarted it reset EVERYTHING. I don't see the Apps anymore, the shortcuts on toolbar are gone/back to defult items & I can't restore any of the past backedup sessions from the past week! I had at least 150+ tabs in 4 windows. And I already tried the "History> Closed tabs"restore thing. It only restores the LAST session, since I've been trying to fix/figure this out for at least 12 hours & nothing has restored the tabs from about 13 hours ago. Note: My Bookmarks & History (I've previously set to saved before the sessions I've had to restart during) are fine, it's only the many tabs that I can't restore is my sudden problem.

My internet slows down and I keeping a website is slowing your browser down messages, so to fix this temporarly I press the start button to power it off. When I start up firefox again it asks me if I wan't to restore my last session, but sometimes the session is restored in the state of an old bookmark and not my last session.

Tabs I had open are gone, tabs I closed are restored, because they were bookmarked. I've deleted the bookmark but I continue to have this problem how do I fix this.

Hi!!

I had a lot of tabs open, but this morning my computer crashed, and when I restarted Firefox, I was asked wether to restaure session or to initiate a new one. I choose to restore my session, but instead of restauring my last session, Firefox restore my session as it was in early 2017, more or less 18 months ago.

is there anything I can do to retrieve that session?

I tried the solution of this thread, but it did'nt work (I don't find any sessionstore.jsonlz4 file in my profile) https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1234892 (I tried the last solution the best I can, but I'm not sure i did it properly, so maybe if someone is kind enough to help me getting through it, maybe it will do it.....)

When using the "Restore Previous session" Firefox keeps refusing to load one of the tabs I had open last at random.
