Using version 18.0

I just tried to Restore a session and ended up with one from yesterday. The other day I got one that was several hours old. These both cost me a lot of productivity. If the browser keeps crashing and its not going to restore properly I'm going to have to find another browser.

Could you type about:crashes into your browser and provide us with the latest crash ids please.

Thanks!

You can check for problems with the sessionstore.js and sessionstore.bak files in the Firefox Profile Folder that store session data.

Delete the sessionstore.js file and possible sessionstore-##.js files with a number and sessionstore.bak in the Firefox Profile Folder.

Deleting sessionstore.js will cause App Tabs and Tab Groups and open and closed (undo) tabs to get lost, so you will have to create them again (make a note or bookmark them).

@cor-el how does that help exactly? I deleted them but it seems to just remove restores.

Hello? I did what both of you said a few days ago...

Did you check the time stamp of the sessionstore.js before starting Firefox to be sure that is hasn't been replaced by an older version of the file.

Some security software has virtualization or sandbox features that may cause problems by protecting and restoring files in the Firefox profile folder, possibly after a reboot.
