Just logged into my firefox browser to find that my tabs did not load and I was confronted with a new FFox browser called pocket,which I have never heard of! Am I to assume that this pocket version is the browser I now have to use and must therefore start again from scratch to reload all my tabs? It would have been nice to be informed about such a drastic change, or at least that one could be given a choice to choose this new browser update when it would be convenient for the user. Basically I want all my tabs back and I was not able to do a restore as this option was deactivated. This is very annoying as I'm going on holiday tomorrow and do not need such a hassle as I had important tabs 'open' to use for planning etc. So I hope that you can either advise me on how to get my tabs back (I'm presuming that my bookmarks are still active?!) or do a some sort of reset. Thanks in advance for your help and I hope to hear back from you soon.

Sorry for the delay in responding. You should not lose tabs when updating Firefox. Hopefully you were able to use your history to find your way back to those essential sites or, if you are accessing this reply remotely, you could try this:

Open your current Firefox settings (AKA Firefox profile) folder using either

  • "3-bar" menu button > "?" button > Troubleshooting Information
  • (menu bar) Help > Troubleshooting Information
  • type or paste about:support in the address bar and press Enter

In the first table on the page, click the "Show Folder" button.

In the window that launches, scroll down and double-click into the sessionstore-backups folder. Save all files here to a safe location, such as your Documents folder.

The one I'm particularly interested in finding would be the most recent one that follows this naming pattern:

upgrade.js-build_id -- for example -- upgrade.js-20150525141253

This file should contain the windows and tabs in the Firefox session that was live at the time of your last update. This file is not human readable, but can be "switched" for your current session history file to restore the session from that time.

If that sounds like it's worth a try:

(1) Move up to the main level of the profile folder (the one that opened from Firefox, before you clicked into sessionstore-backups).

(2) Leaving that window open, switch back to Firefox and:

(A) If applicable, bookmark the tabs you'll want to come back to (Ctrl+d for individual tabs, or to save all the tabs in the window, right-click a tab > Bookmark All Tabs)

(B) Then Exit out of Firefox completely using either:

  • "3-bar" menu button > "power" button
  • (menu bar) File > Exit

Pause while Firefox finishes its cleanup, then rename sessionstore.js to something like sessionstore.old.

Note: By default, Windows hides the .js extension. To ensure that you are looking at the files I mentioned, you may want to turn off that feature. This article has the steps: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/show-hide-file-name-extensions

(3) Copy the upgrade.js-20150525141253 (or most recent similarly named file) into the profile folder and rename it to sessionstore.js

(4) Start Firefox back up again. You may need to use History > Restore Previous Session if Firefox doesn't restore those windows and tabs automatically.

Success?

Unicat thank you for you question I understand that when you updated you saw the new Pocket feature. This is a new part of Firefox that was added with the recent partnership with Pocket. If you would like to restore your session, you can still do it the same way you did before.

In order to check if your Bookmarks are still there, click on the Bookmarks menu a the top of the screen and select "Show All Bookmarks".

Hi jscher2000 Just back from my holiday and wanted to let you know that your solution worked, so I am VERY HAPPY to get my old tabs back again! I'll make it a habit to bookmark all my open tabs (I do use bookmarks, but don't always bm all my open tabs) in the future in case they get wiped out again by something new being installed w/o my control. Thanks again and I wish you a nice day!
