Lost previous session, 20 Windows and several tags per window all gone

Kuphostiwe

Firefox has been really buggy for a long time now and today it proposed that I do a "refresh". It said all my windows would be restored..... I did the refresh and the window that was previously open duly appeared to have been restored - it was a window button saying "restore previous session". So I clicked on it to get back all my windows and tabs, but the button turned grey and never went any further.... I then tried trouble-shooting having checked this forum and I tried replacing the "sessionstore.jsonlz4" from a TimeCapsule backup 12 hours earlier, but it doesn't make any différence. When I reopen FF it carries on as if the 20 missing windows never existed. So PLEASE can someone tell me what file(s?) I should be copying? /restoring(?) from TimeMachine to rollback and recover all the missing windows. Huge thanks in advance :-)

Well if the sessionstore.js doesn't bring the sessions back that would mean they are no longer there.

Umnikazi wombuzo

Hello WestEnd, Thanks for your comment... Forgive my ignorance, but I'm not sure I understand you(!)... Going back a step... What is the name of the file which records the open windows and tabs at the end of a session?

And exactly where is is that file to be found?

Surely, if I take said file from a backup on Time Machine of 24 hours ago, and either restore it, or copy it to today's FF app, and then open the app, I should get the windows and tabs that I had 24 hours ago... if not, why not?! If such a file exists, it should be easy to find on the TM and duly restore - or am I misunderstanding how things work?! Thanks in advance... :-)

You only option to bring back the sessions is to look at your history list to find them but if that is cleared out then it's gone.
