Three times now I have lost over 150 open tabs on Firefox and have spent hours trying to recover them but to no avail.

I have tried absolutely everything I have read in multiple support posts such as clicking on the 3 lines, trying to go into history, etc. The best I can do is go into my history to see thousands of website that I have been to in the past several months, but seemingly no way to restore only the 150 tabs that I had open.

Several of the posts refer to trying to find previous files with names in them such as "session..." and "json..." etc. but I cannot find any of these files on my hard drive.

MESSAGE TO FIREFOX DEVELOPERS: Please please please add an option to load a previous set of tabs that were open a week or two ago. Not an option to open the websites I was on, but the actual saved tabs. Very frustrating!!!!!! It's not reasonable to expect someone to go through 3,000 web pages in the history to find the 150 that I opened and left opened for a reason. A couple of hundred hours of my time in research down the drain.

Please help. I'm using the latest firefox browser on Windows 7. Thanks.

Firefox is working fine, except it won't load gmail, and gmail works fine in other browsers. I get a tab crash message but no opportunity to submit a report. I copied and pasted the url of the working page from another browser and as before it just crashed while loading.

I have tried clearing history, refreshing firefox without add ons etc., and running a scan for malware.

None of this worked. Any suggestions appreciated.

So, I have a bad habit of keeping pages open in my browser and letting them accumulate in order to read them at a later date. Bad habit, I know. But, when going through and closing old tabs I no longer need, I noticed that the undo close tab button doesn't actually undo the tab you just closed. Instead of re-opening the tab you most recently closed, it re-opens whichever tab you closed recently which most recently *opened*. For example - say I have seven tabs open, with tab one being on the left/opened first, and tab seven being on the right/opened most recently. If I close tab seven and then close tab two, and then I click the undo close tab button, tab seven will be the one to be re-opened, even though it was closed before I closed tab two. Likewise, the tabs on the far left won't show up under recently closed tabs if there are tabs further to the right that were closed, even if they were closed before the tabs on the left.

I discovered this while clearing out tabs I had open. I closed several tabs on the right/most-recent, and then went to the left/oldest tabs and started closing those. I realized after opening a tab that I still kind of needed that page for other things. However, when I went to undo close tab, the tab that opened wasn't the tab I had just closed, it was one of the tabs I had closed several minutes prior that were on the right/most-recent side of the page. The tab which I closed on accident was nowhere to be found in my history.

Why? I note there are over 2300 people who have reported this issue. The Extension, Tabs Backup and Restore looses saved sessions and replaces them with sessions with only a few tabs. 1. What can I do until someone fixes FF? 2. When it is going to be fixed? Is there an extension that works to restore pinned tabs?

I have now spent several hours re-pinning tabs.

Hello.

Cycling through unpinned tabs is easy, Ctrl+Tab does the job.... But what about pinned tabs?

People are more likely to have more pinned tabs open and saved to their browser than unpinned tabs, like myself, as surely, that is the point of pinned tabs.

So I cannot for the life of me understand why I can't find a keyboard shortcut to cycle through these!! Is it really possible for developers to overlook this simple but extremely useful and effective shortcut?!

Can anyone help?

Mike.

How do I recover my old browser session and its open tabs on mac? "Restore my previous session" wasn't an option, and I already tried deleting the sessionstore* files in Finder

This same issue happened a couple years ago, but I'm hoping it's possible to go another level deeper. Here was the answer I received, which I already attempted, but unfortunately it did not work this time:

"You may have corrupt sessionstore [v56] sessionstore.jsonlz4 file(s). Delete all sessionstore* files and the sessionstore-backups folder.

Type about:support<enter> in the address bar.

Under the page logo on the left side, you will see Application Basics. Under this find Profile Folder. To its right press the button Show Folder. This will open your file browser to the current Firefox profile. Now Close Firefox.

Locate the above file. Then rename or delete it. Restart Firefox.

Don't delete the files if you need to rescue any data from them, just move them out of the profile folder to some location where Firefox doesn't look for them."

Then I replied with the following:

i actually found the file in "sessionstore-backups" folder named "previous.jsonlz4" and realized it was my last session based on the date and time in the file info (when i last shut off my computer when firefox crashed).

i then copy & pasted that file into the main/master folder named "jwlxf24d.default". i then deleted the file named "sessionstore.jsonlz4" in that main folder, and renamed the copy & pasted file to the same one i just deleted: "sessionstore.jsonlz4".

this was the only file i needed to delete in order for my old tabs to reload.

so i then restarted firefox, and all of my old tabs loaded!"

+++++

So, are there any other techniques to recover my tabs from an old session? After searching in the Firefox Profiles Folder in Finder, and organizing the files by the "Date Created" column, I did locate some .jsonlz4 files with the date/time from my old session that I'm hoping to recover..... but I tried the same technique mentioned above in my old reply, and it didn't work.

Is there any way to work with the following files, or other ones, that have the same date as the session I'm hoping to recover?.... xxxxx.main.jsonlz4 xxxxx.event.jsonlz4 These are located in the following folders: jwlxf24d.default > datareporting > archived > 2022-03

There were no .jsonlz4 files with the correct date located in the "sessionstore-backups" folder, which is what I was able to work with in the past. Really hoping there's another way to solve this issue.

Hi all,

After a recent update to firefox I didn't like the premade colour themes, so I made my own. There is one thing that bothers me though, and I'm not sure how to change it: As you can see in the attached image, the tab I'm currently on has a clear distinct colour. However, all the unselected tabs have the same colour as the background. I find it annoying that this makes unselected tabs harder to spot, and makes it harder to see where one tab begins and the other ends. It is minor, but it annoys me. Does anyone know a way (either via settings or the add-on firefox color) for me to make the unselected tabs stand out from the background?

Thanks in advance.

(firefox version 89.0 64 bit)
