I am using a new user account on the macbook and need to transfer firefox tabs, contained within the session of previous user account.

I have backed up the previous user account using Time Machine, and can access its files using Time Machine.

Is there a way to copy necessary files related to opening tabs from previous user account into the current user account, so I can resume session in new and current user account?

Firefox stores your list of open windows and tabs in a file named sessionstore.js, in your Firefox profile folder. This is under a hidden path, as described in this article: Profiles - Where Firefox stores your bookmarks, passwords and other user data.

In theory, you can transplant your old sessionstore.js into your currently active profile folder (with Firefox NOT running) and when you start Firefox you should be able to restore that session from the History menu. I recommend lots of backups before trying this.

sessionstore.js in your profile folder is where your open tabs are saved.
