I have several windows open, and some of them have multiple tab groups. Is there an easy way to move these tab groups between the windows? I saw the workaround of making bookmarks of all the tabs in one group, move to the target window and open the bookmarks there.

To be honest I found this one a slow and messy way to do things and hope to find a better solution or raise this as a feature request.

This is not so much a question, as an answer that some people desperately need.

Ever since Version 34, Firefox has done a superb job of restoring the tabs that the user has created, either on restarting Firefox (if that option is chosen) or on request.

The details of how to restore tabs are covered in Firefox's basic help online, and even how to deal with several crashes in a row (such as in an addon) ruin the normal backup file are also well explained.

However, today I accidentally pressed Alt+F4 twice on my poorly-designed keyboard and closed my main window, with 93 tabs, and another Firefox window as well. I'm not sure this is exactly what happened, but I lost all 93 of my tabs.

I read many of the postings in which people give various suggestions, but none worked. Every time I restored a version of the sessionstore.js file I saw the same lonely empty tab. Restoring prefs.js did nothing, and neither did making changes in the internal configuration constants.

I tried refreshing/resetting Firefox (which preserves bookmarks), but I still couldn't restore the tabs. It was now clear that the problem was in sessionstore.js (and all its backups) for sure.

I'm writing this for people who must restore their windows or tabs, and don't mind getting technical about it. That was my situation.

The solution was to realize that the sessionstore.js file contains JSON code, which is an efficient way to represent integers and strings arranged in a tree structure.

I figured there must be a JSON editor somewhere, and it turns out there is a great one available online, at www.jsoneditoronline.org . It can read a file on your computer, edit it, then save it back on your computer.

As soon as I viewed sessionstore.js in the editor, it was obvious how easy this was going to be. The top level of the tree is understandable. I simply grabbed the data representing the window with 93 tabs, and dragged it from the list of closed Firefox windows to the list of open windows. This automatically moved the history of each tab, and even the strings entered into forms.

After copying sessionstore.js back to the Firefox profile, I started Firefox one more time. The playing of Pandora signalled that my tabs were back and functioning once again.

Now, editing JSON code is not something that everyone is ready for. And your problem might not be reflected in the JSON tree so simply. But, for technical-minded people who don't want to lose their tabs or windows to a mistake or a crash, this technique can be just what's needed when everything else fails.

Hi everybody.

As already mentioned, i would like to wrap the tab-titles to more lines so i am able to display more information of the title. Unfortunately i cannot find a way to do this except the more or less poor addon "tabtweak". I have tried manipulating the style via userChrome.css but all of my efforts wont have any effect on the length/overflow of the displayed text.

Here is what i have tried so far:

/*@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* set default namespace to XUL */

.tabbrowser-tab:not([pinned]) .tab-text {

                               border: !important; 
                               word-wrap: break-word !important;
                               word-break: normal !important; 
                               white-space: wrap !important; 
                               height: 3em !important;
                               overflow-y: visible !important; 
                               overflow-x: visible !important; 
                               overflow: visible !important;
                               text-overflow: visible !important;
                               display: inline-table !important; 
                               max-width: none !important;}

It would be awesome if someone is able to help out here. Soultice

Windows 7, firefox 40.0.3

My computer crashed and thus, firefox did not close properly and lost all of my tabs. Under Menu -> History, the Restore Previous Session is greyed out. Why is this? Shouldn't I be able to restore from there?

I've found replies from "jscher2000" and my sessionstore-backups\previous.js file looks like the one I want to use to restore my tabs. However I do not see how to use this file to restore my tabs.

How do I use previous.js to restore my tabs and tab groups?

Following instructions I found on this site I copied each file to profile folder and renamed to 'sessionstore.js' with no firefox running. This method worked only with 'upgrade.js-xxx' files however 'upgrade.js-xxx' files contain only half tabs I have in other files. How can I load other files then? Why Firefox is not loading them?

Every time I'd open a new tab, my download manager would pop open asking to save an mp3 file. The mp3 file was from a web site that would automatically start playing the music anytime you went to it's home page. <insert long story of chasing numerous ways of clearing cache files and stored settings that didn't work> Yes, a new profile (devoid of any important saved information) worked. But that wasn't a solution, just an avoidance. ... The solution: My new tabs were configured to show my top sites. By sheer luck I happened to notice the source web site of this mp3 file being displayed within my top sites. Clicking the X to remove that site solved the issue.

If I open a new tab and type a url in or select a bookmarked page, or the quick navigation options for recently or frequently visited pages that shows up on opening a new tab, none will never load. The only way i can have multiple tabs work is to google the page i want, right click the link and open in new tab and google the next page i want to view. So for example to listen to some music on youtube and scroll through facebook, i would have to open firefox, search for youtube, open it in a new tab, perform a second search for facebook and open it in a new tab for them to load. The entire time i have been typing this i have been trying to load something from a bookmark and nothing has loaded yet. Using windows 10, firefox says version 56.0b9

Expected behaviour: When I start typing into the URL bar (awesomebar) Firefox suggests possibilities including already open tabs, giving me the "switch to tab" option. I can even restrict the suggestions to tabs only by starting the typing with "% ".

Observed behaviour: As above except Firefox suggests tabs only if they are in the same container as the current tab. (The default container does not seem to be special in this respect.)

I would like a way to find a tab by typing in part of its URL or title, without having to know which container it is in. Is there any way to achieve this at present? If not, please treat it as a feature-request (or even a bug-report... is the existing suggestions/search feature intended to work across containers or not?)

So if I'm not paying attention I end up losing a website page I wanted to keep available, and I also have a new tab that has nothing on it.
