Will firefox ever get a session restore that is ACID?

Firefox losing all of my session history is an inevitability. I have encountered this problem on many cases over the past decade, be it due to an update, a power failure, a BSOD, or just randomly (despite closing the application correctly); like a law of nature, eventually firefox will just forget to open a window, or the entire session. This issue has caused me to switch to other web browsers in the past, multiple times. They each struggle with this in their own way.

Sometimes I can save my session by finding it in the sessionstore-backups folder, but the problem I am talking about is that that does not always work! Often times the backups get overwritten when the problem occurs - even if I don't touch firefox or open it again or close it, even if I immediately notice that a window that was there when I previously opened firefox is no longer there, often times nothing in the backup files actually has the version that I want. It's always overwritten with the new/modified session that's missing hundreds or thousands or tabs from my session restore history.

I think that the ability to actually restore a session and not have to cross my fingers that it doesnt blow up and delete my entire history (which randomly occurs at least once every few months) is the biggest problem with firefox. It is the most frustrating thing that any web browser can do. And quite frankly even if I wanted to use Firefox Sync to store my session information on a remote server (which I do not!) I do not actually trust that firefox will actually not fumble it and randomly delete my session every few months, given the history of how this problem has existed as long as I have been using this software. At least with the local sessions, sometimes I can recover some of the data, which isn't an option when firefox sync inevitably drops my session history. I am on the verge of setting up some kind of recurring task to back up the session store files on a regular basis just so I don't go crazy.

So: why does this problem exist? Is there a long running thread about why the session restore system sucks? Will it ever get fixed (even having multiple backups or the ability to manually save a backup in the UI would be a major improvement)? Are there community supported tools to fix this problem by saving extra copies of the sessionstore files?

I was removing some extensions that no longer worked. Just 2 video extensions, then I changed my current theme and my monitor black screened for a moment. Afterwards, all of my tabs were on the top. I've tried to chang them in the about:config. Added code in several chrome folders specified, and it still won't go to the bottom. Can we just get a simple setting check mark box? This is incredibly frustrating.

So I have an issue where I am unable to reorder or detach tabs after having detached one tab. When I start Firefox I am able to reorder my tabs as much as I want, but once I detach one tab both functionalities do not work anymore.

- Firefox version 126.0 on Kubuntu 24.04 - After restarting Firefox I am able to do it again once - After rebooting I am also able to do it again once - The same issue in private window - I have refreshed Firefox through Help -> More troubleshooting information - Disabled all my add-ons - Tried it in Troubleshoot mode

I cannot seem to find a real answer online. Does somebody here have a solution for me :-)?

Hi,

If I have an unloaded tab on right of the current tab and I close the current one, instead of going to the right tab, which is the unloaded one, it jumps to another tab which I'm not sure has what relation to it, it certainly is not the tab that opened it.

I removed every modified entry of "Browser.tab" in About:Config, installed "Select After Closing Tab", no result.

Thanks

If you close a tab that is next to one or more unloaded tabs, firefox jumps those and opens the next one that is loaded. Is there a way to disable this so upon closing it would open the right tab, whether loaded or not. I tried "Select After Closing" add-on, didn't fix it. Disabled Auto Unloading via about:config, same result.

I just tried the free Avast anti-track product. I ran a browser clean-up which included browser cache but NOT browser history. (they give you options on what to clear). Now I have lost the 50+ tabs I always open on startup. I have also lost all browser history older than 2 weeks. Avast can't help. Anyone know how I can recover my tabs?

Sometimes drag functionality stops working. I can't grab a tab to move it to another position or to a new window. (Holding left click on the tab and moving the cursor does nothing). Also, re-merging the tab with another firefox window stops working. (Dragging a tab to a firefox window from another firefox window doesn't merge them. It does nothing) I can right click on the tab and select Move to move it to a new window but dragging stops working. I have to close Firefox and start it again (sometimes twice), then dragging starts working again. This happens multiple times a day. I am on Linux Mint and the version is 126.0 (64-bit). This problematic behavior has only recently began.

I use version 115.11.0esr (32-bit). I need help with the color of open tabs. How do open tabs can be all in one color and that is black or dark gray? I don't want all open tabs to be bright because it stitches me in the eye. Active tab can be any color but for all other open tabs I want them to be in the same dark color - black or dark gray. Is this possible and how can this be achieved? Thanks very much.

I can log into Firefox, but if I try to click on nay other websites, the URL comes up, but nothing loads. I try to refresh the page, but the refresh 'circle' is greyed out and doesn't work. Then it's as if my mouse pointer is broken; I can't click on anything. Everything works fine in EDGE and other browsers. This seems to have happened after the last Firefox update. I have cleared my cache and data, and refreshed Firefox. So far, no good.

Hello, I closed my browser, expecting it to save my current tabs as it usually does. When I reopened it, the tabs were gone. They were important for me, and some of them were pretty old so I can't find them in my history. I tried checking the "recently closed tabs" option, it didn't help. There was also no option to restore the previous session. Can you help me restore my lost tabs?
