Yesterday, I was invited to update Firefox on my desk-top PC running Windows 10. When I did, all of my open tabs were absent from the new version. Luckily the old version was still open with my open tabs. Today, my old version opened again with the open tabs and a window that said the automatic updated didn't happen. It invited me to update again. I clicked on "More information" and it went to an error message. My question is, how do I save all of my open tabs when I update Firefox?

You can backup your tabs by right-clicking a tab > Select All Tabs, then right-click a tab > Bookmark All Tabs.

To preserve your tab session, disable private browsing mode aka "Never Remember History" and don't clear "Browsing & download history" on close. Quit from the menu (Ctrl+Shift+Q) instead of closing windows individually.
