No selection to restore previous session after new download of FF
I downloaded a new version of FireFox and tried to quit FireFox normally. It didn't quit so I ForceQuit it. When I brought it back up, the selection to Restore Previous Session was grayed out. I am running OS X High Sierra.
Specifically, I tried to quit FireFox normally, then I ran a Time Machine Backup and when that was done, I Force Quit FireFox. Upon trying to bring up FireFox at this point was when the selection to Restore Previous Session was grayed out.
Can you please tell me where any back up session files are and what I would need to do to restore my prior sessions to FireFox. Since I was doing a Time Machine backup, I may be able to look there as well.
Thank you in advance for your help.
