Unable to restore session from file
First time I get that, I usually lose my tabs due to my mistake but this morning after starting my PC all the tabs were gone with no option to restore or any error message. I backed up my previous session json and other files by hand but every time i copy it back into my profile folder and rename it sessionstore.jsonlz4 it just gets deleted after I open firefox and none of my old tabs get loaded. I scrounged the files before and saw that they contain my lost tabs, I just can't seem to restore them. I tried reinstalling firefox too but that didn't help.
Did the restore system change or is the backup corrupt ? Thanks!

Hi Fred, in the Scrounger, are the tabs you want back shown to be in Open windows or Closed windows? If they're in closed windows, and we assume that Firefox restored the session, try one of these:
- "3-bar" menu button > Library > History > Recently Closed Windows
- "Library" toolbar button > History > Recently Closed Windows
- (menu bar) History > Recently Closed Windows
If that doesn't help, you can use Save List on the Scrounger to archive the clickable links to your computer and re-open tabs that way. Better than nothing??
Hey jscher2000, thanks for the quick reply! In the Scrounger they show in the closed windows, but when I check the recently closed windows it says its empty so I guess it didnt restore the session?
Oh I see! That's a lot of clicks but that's pretty doable, thanks! :)
Hmm, if there is no Restore Previous Session, and there are no Recently Closed Windows, possibly the file got a little bit corrupted. Hard to say at a distance.
It's alright, its pretty fast doing the clicks. The Scrounger is super useful!
