Hi,

I always have dozens of tabs opened, if not hundreds. They have vanished. I’ve been trying to follow the topics on the matter, such as the one named ‘Session won't load’ (questions/1254740), to no avail.

Finally, this time I remembered not to close Firefox when I saw my tabs where suddenly missing. I’ve never seen the ‘Restore the previous session’ on the Firefox menu, and neither did I this time. Without closing the browser, I did a backup of the ‘sessionstore-backups’ folder. It contains:

‘previous.jsonlz4’, from 22/11/2020 17:42 ‘recovery.baklz4’, from 22/11/2020 18:57 ‘recovery.jsonlz4’ from 22/11/2020 18:58 ‘upgrade.jsonlz4-20201027185343’ from 31/10/2020 13:42 ‘upgrade.jsonlz4-20201108180448’ from 10/11/2020 15:05 ‘upgrade.jsonlz4-20201112153044’ from 22/11/2020 10:34

The one I need is ‘previous.jsonlz4’, since by 18:57 I’ve already lost my tabs. From the update backups I think I could also use the one from 22/11. In any case, I don’t understand what I am doing wrong so as to recover the ‘previous.jsonlz4’. This is what I’ve tried from different threads on my profile folder:

The ‘-backup’ and ‘OLD’ changes belong to different attempts

- Rename (on ‘sessionstore-backups’ folder) ‘recovery.jsonlz4’ and ‘recovery.baklz4’ to ‘recovery-backup.jsonlz4’ and ‘recovery-backup.baklz4’, and also tried with ‘recoveryOLD.jsonlz4’ and ‘recoveryOLD.baklz4’ - Rename ‘sessionstore-backups’ folder to ‘sessionstore-backupsOLD’ - Rename (on the main profile folder) ‘sessionstore.jsonlz4’ file to‘sessionstore-backup.jsonlz4’, and also tried with ‘sessionstoreOLD.jsonlz4’ - Copy/paste the ‘previous.jsonlz4’ file into the main profile folder. - Rename ‘previous.jsonlz4’ to ‘sessionstore.jsonlz4’

Nothing has worked. Once followed the steps, Firefox keeps opening my startup page. Note that it does not restore my previous session (that is, some tabs regarding this same subject), but my startup page, which means my attempts are having some effect, although not the desired one. I do have the ‘Restore previous session’ checkmarked in ‘Setting/General/Startup.

I also tried to replace ‘recovery.baklz4’ (on ‘sessionstore-backups’ folder) with ‘previous.jsonlz4’, from 22/11/2020 17:42, hoping to be prompted with the ‘Well, this is embarrassing’ + ’Restore’ window. I had no success.

I’ve been trying to recover my tabs for hour by now and don’t find what I am doing wrong. Why does Firefox refuse to load my ‘previous.jsonlz4’ file? Am I missing something? Maybe ‘previous.jsonlz4’ is corrupted or something? Should I try to use the ‘upgrade.jsonlz4-20201112153044’ from 22/11/2020 10:34 file? (Although I would lose some information)

Some people talk about a ‘History > Restore Previous Session’. I cannot find anything similar.

Thank you very much

I can get rid of it easily by clicking on the 30% in the url window but it is completely annoying.

I am not sure how i did it in the first place and i am wondering how to get rid of it, or at least change it so it doesnt come back.

Hi dear Community Members, formerly when I opened a link in an email from my Outlook account, it opened in a Tab exactly next to it. But now it goes beyond several tabs which were already there. How can I get these links again opened in a Tab right next to it. That makes it easier to go from my email to that tab and back, I find.

Hope that I described this clear.

Thanx, Jan

I'm not sure how, but sometimes when closing firefox with or without a restart of the pc, the second tab of my last session dissapeared. The first tab is my mail and stays, but the second tab is sometimes missing. If I close now the browser and start the browser again, the second tab is still there, but today I didn't restart the pc but firefox was closed for a while, I am missing the second tab. The second tab I have now, was the third tab before.

I'm running Windows 10 (Version 2004) and firefox 83.0 (64-bit) and have 157tabs open at the moment.

Firefox unexpectedly quit, open tabs lost when MacBook Pro's charge died. After charging, did restart since Menu button to access History was missing (only menu bar visible). It returned, but unable to restore closed tabs (as I've done in the past) - History shows it to be "empty." I've spent hours searching Mozilla Support...can anyone please help? These 8-10 tabs must be somewhere!

My previous session didn't automatically reopen when I restarted firefox. When I went to the help section, it told me to click "restore previous session" from the menu, but I don't have that on my menu. The example shows it after "new private window", but my menu has "zoom" in that spot. I noticed that the "sync" isn't at the top of my menu either. I had this problem once before, but it was long ago, and I don't remember the solution. Hope that I'm describing my problem well enough. Frustrating for a senior, trying to stay safe.

I'm trying to use a custom start page on new tabs opening (not happy that I have to use an extension for such basic functionality btw) but my service worker does not seem to activate or used when opening. Opening a new tab takes multiple seconds.

Navigating to the site (I have my start page hosted on AWS) on an existing tab is instantaneous, as is refreshing this page once the tab is loaded. So what gives? As far as I can tell Firefox doesn't install service workers on a per-tab basis, so there should be no issue here.

In the plugin "facebook Container" I have made a new "tab category" called "social media" with a blue sign. The problem is that firefox continues to open FB in the old category even if I delete it, which is also very hard to do as I have to close all my FB-tabs to be able to delete it in the options tab. Next time I use firefox or a few days later firefox has again undeleted the old FB category and again opens my FB tabs in black tabs instead of my new blue tabs. I can´t use my own new tab category as long as the old one is there and it keeps comming back after I delete it. Very annoying to say the least! Please fix this error as soon as posible, thank you.

I frequently do a lot of diverse research, and try to maintain a strict subject matter thread in each open window. As a result, I have 150+ windows open, each with a number of tabs. Even with the win 10 bottom taskbar expanded all the way, it is difficult to find a particular window, as they are all randomly displayed. Is there a way to alphabetically sort the open Firefox windows shown in the win 10 taskbar? Would this be a Firefox function, or is it a Windows function? Any assistance would be appreciated!

Prior to the release of update 78 I used to be able to click on the address bar and it would bring up my top 20 or so site. I don't know why, but this extremely easy to use and accessible feature was removed. We are now on update 83 and the problem has only gotten worse. I've attached 2 pics in an attempt to showcase this tragedy that Firefox has created. I don't understand why I'm limited to the number of sites in the dropdown. Worse yet, only 1 of my most frequent sites are listed in the 6 sites I can choose from.

If you're attempted to make things easier for me, you've utterly failed... miserably! Also, not only am I limited to sites I DON'T use, I now have "Sponsored" web sites. GET OUT OF HERE WITH THIS NONSENSE! I now have 8 site to choose from, 1 of which I use. Remember, I use up to 20 web sites per shift so Firefox showing me 7 I don't use is extremely time consuming and frustrating. If only I could pick from my top 20 sites, like I could since I started using Firefox more than 15 years ago, then perhaps 2 "Sponsored" sites at the bottom of my list wouldn't be such a bad thing. Remember the good ole days when Firefox was customizable.

I understand that SPACEBAR is now the way for me to view my most frequent websites and that is a longer list and more accurate that the initial dropdown. Why do I have to click spacebar? This is unnecessary. Is there a way to make this spacebar view the default dropdown view when I click on the address bar?

Lastly, since, update 78 I have made several attempts to remove the "Search with..." at the top of the address bar. Can someone please come up with a viable option for me to move this redundant feature? The address bar itself can perform searches. I have the default search bar clipped into my browser. That's 2 places I can search... I don't need a 3rd search option in a dropdown that already takes me to where I want to go.

I swear, it's like no one over at Firefox even cares about the users anymore they just keep making changes that limit options and give us no recourse to correct their "fixes" that break my experience and productivity.

Dear folks-- I am working on several large, complicated research projects with a lot of moving parts and many technical aspects that I barely understand. When I raise a question, I normally open a bunch of tabs to papers, stackexchange sites, etc. I usually don’t end up with an unambiguous answer in a single session. I close the tabs that appear not to be useful, and leave the others open. So open tabs represent unfinished tasks to which I expect to return. Every time I try to close a bunch of tabs, I find unfinished tasks that still require research. I pretty much always end up creating more tabs than I close. And at some point it becomes easier to just search again than to find the open tabs I remember. I have tried to use open windows as sort of like thematic groups, with a little success. I work with three big monitors, and it is normal for me to have four or five Firefox windows open, each with its own tab set (all this under MS-Windows 10).

I just accidentally hit close and was asked if I was sure I wanted to close 4643 tabs. Yikes!

This isn’t getting out of hand, it's already out of hand. However, my tabs represent a summary and history of about six years of research. I want to keep them. But I don’t want to keep them like this.

I see that there are tab management capabilities built into Firefox that I have not been using. I also see that there are multiple extensions that offer additional capabilities. However I am more afraid than probably makes sense of adopting a solution that I do not fully understand, and either losing my tabs through inadvertence, or spending weeks organizing them under a new system only to discover that it lacks some crucial capability that I didn’t think to check for.

So I throw myself on the mercy of you, the wonderful Firefox help team, both volunteer and professional. I have tried to imagine a system that would let me organize my 4000+tabs with a sane amount of time and effort. I have produced a list of features that I think would let me do that. I would like to know if I can do all these things, either with native Firefox, or with Firefox and at most one additional add-on extension. Please forgive me if I am not using the proper terminology. I’ll try to be as clear as I can about the capabilities I am looking for.

1. Select multiple tabs at once and assign them to a new or existing tab group. 2. Name a group, have the name be visible in the tab bar, and assign a distinctive appearance to all the tabs in that group (maybe by color). 3. Collapse a group to one tab and reopen the tab to the group quickly and easily. 4. Save and close a tab group, and reopen it from some menu of saved tab groups. Save and close should eliminate the resource demand of the closed tab group. Collapse need not.

I could live with (4) without (3), provided the menu of saved groups has good visual design to remind me of what is there.

5. Convert an open window to a single tab group (if it is not already subdivided into groups). 6A. Name and save a window containing multiple tab groups. Close a single window. Open a closed named window, recreating the tab groups it contained. 6B. Alternatively, allow grouping tab groups into supergroups, name and save the supergroup, close and open supergroups, and convert a window containing tab groups into a supergroup. 7. Open any saved group in any open window. 8. All the instances of saving previously described should survive computer crashes, closure of an individual window, and closure of Firefox. Maybe sync to some cloud location? It is OK if closure of Firefox or a Firefox window throws away the tabs provided you get a warning and an opportunity to save, or provided that tab groups are periodically autosaved by default.

I really want something like all the capabilities described above, though I would accept equivalent functionality arranged in different categories than I have used. Here are three more that I regard as nice-to-have rather than must-have: 9. Sync my tabs with my back-up computer, another MS-Windows box with a lot of RAM. 10. Sync my tabs with my Android phone and tablet. 11. Multiple supergroup grouping layers.

I know I’m asking for a lot, but I really do think this is roughly the feature set required to maintain a large collection of tabs and tab groups across multiple Firefox windows. So I hope and believe that time invested in answering this question would be helpful to others similarly (if less extremely) situated, and perhaps to tab management extension designers as well.

Thanks! I look forward to hearing from you.
