So a while back, like many people, I encountered the issue where I downloaded the cutting-edge Firefox in an attempt to get my extensions back during the failure. Then I realized that none of my stuff carried over, and I panicked to re-install the original to get my stuff back.

(To clarify, "stuff" encompasses history, previous sessions, cookies, saved login credentials, and the like. My sessions are...quite large, admittedly, so I crash often.)

So tonight, it crashed again while I was trying to respond to someone on a chat client. I hit restore previous session as normal. Then the update window showed. No harm done there.

Except then it gave me the dead basic, on-install new tab screen. Checking revealed no history, no cookies or password retained, and an inability to rez my previous session.

As a uni student during summer with a lot to book, this is a major issue.

And while I have attempted to look for Old Firefox Files, they remain elusive.


Fair to note: I use Windows 10 on a bone-average Lenovo laptop.

Hi Arrowtie, sorry to hear about this problem. When you say --

So tonight, it crashed again while I was trying to respond to someone on a chat client. I hit restore previous session as normal. Then the update window showed. No harm done there. Except then it gave me the dead basic, on-install new tab screen.

What are the "before" and "after" versions? Or in other words, how big a leap was it from what you used before to what you use now?

Profile Manager Page

Inside Firefox, type or paste about:profiles in the address bar and press Enter/Return to load it.

This page should list one or more profiles. Firefox 67 often creates one named default-release while the older one(s) might be named default or a variation on the word default.

Each profile has one or more buttons at the bottom: please do not use Rename or Remove to avoid further problems.

Can you find a "Set as default profile" button for your previous profile? After setting that, you can exit Firefox and start it up again.

Was that the issue?

I put off checking back or even using my laptop much for fear it had all been wiped away.

But God, that about:profiles. jscher2000, you're a lifesaver.

It's exactly the amount of a mess it was before, of course, but everything is here.

Including Piskel.

Back up and restore information in Firefox profiles.{web link} I use an add-on that makes backups of my user profile, Just In Case. Unfortunately, it is not compatible with the current Firefox.

Every now and then, open the profile folder and create a copy of the current profile as is to another location on your hard drive. This way you will have a backup.

If you do this each day, you will not lose much data. This should be done with Firefox Closed.

Note: In case you need to restore from these backups, you may need to overwrite old or corrupted files.
