Restoring Tabs from Backups

I had to reinstall Windows because of a blue screen of death I couldn't fix. My firefox and everything else was gone. I want to restore my Firefox tabs. I've clicked on history, manage history, then Import and Backup, then Restore, and then I tried choosing the file from before I had to reinstall, but when I click on that file and click open, I get the message, this will replace all of your current bookmarks with the backup. Are you sure? I click ok, but nothing happens. These are the files in the sessionstore-backups folder: previous.jsonlz4 recovery.baklz4 upgrade.jsonlz4-20210504152106 upgrade.jsonlz4-20210527174632 upgrade.jsonlz4-20210622155641

You can't restore tabs by using an bookmarks backup like you appear to be doing in the Bookmarks Manager (Library).

You can copy a file from the sessionstore-backups folder to the main profile and rename the file to sessionstore.jsonlz4 to replace the current file with Firefox closed.

  • make sure to backup the current sessionstore.jsonlz4

You can look at this tool to inspect a compressed sessionstore file.
