Firefox crashed, I restarted and accidentally opened a new session instead of restore session. How do I get my tabs back?

I lost all my tabs, I can't use the "recently closed tabs" in the history menu. Is there any other way to get back all the tabs that I lose by accidentally clicking on "new session" instead of "restore session" when Firefox crashed? Running FF 3.6.10

You can check the Firefox Profile Folder to see if there is a file sessionstore.bak

If you find sessionstore.bak and it has the date/time from around that crash then make a backup copy elsewhere and rename the file to sessionstore.js
