The question[1], rather more a problem that I need help with. .

Is that one window of my browser, with all of my precious tabs will not show up anywhere but the taskbar.[2] I know that the windows have loaded, yet they remain stuck.[3] This I theorize is the doing of a single page --a single tab-- among the 30+ of other tabs.[4] This same thing has happened before, but very rarely. .

I was wondering if there was anyway to resolve this while still getting my very important tabs back? Thanks. .

[1] I already once before wrote this question out entirely, yet it has disappeared after I registered my email. . so once again, rewriting.

[2] I can still bring up new windows, and new tabs within those windows, however, the other window, with all of the other pages are stuck.

[3] Because it prompts me with a download, or plays some video from nowhere upon start up.

[4] Might not be the case, who knows. . This has happened before, before ever switching to beta.

I fixed the issue very easily.. What I did was hover my mouse over the preview of the window in the taskbar, and right clicked, and pressed Maximize. It seems that one of the scripts on one of the windows made the Firefox window very small, or something of the like.

Create a new profile as a test to check if your current profile is causing the problems.

See "Basic Troubleshooting: Make a new profile":

There may be extensions and plugins installed by default in a new profile, so check that in "Tools > Add-ons > Extensions & Plugins" in case there are still problems.

If that new profile works then you can transfer some files from the old profile to that new profile, but be careful not to copy corrupted files.

Where are the tabs stored in the profile? Or are they not stored there..?

more options

The tabs and windows and other session data are stored in sessionstore.js
