On my mac, I have the Restore Previous Sessions enabled and when ever I close the browser and reopen it all my tabs from the previous session is gone! I never had a problem with this with my PC.

- I never press Quit Firefox and just close the browser to restart my computer. - How do I restore from my previous session?

Before shutting down Firefox I deleted history/cache/passwords etc from the past day

I do this all the time but since I had restore previous tabs selected they always get restored when I start up again

However this time they weren't restored when I restarted

Without closing Firefox I navigated to the sessionstore-backups folder to see what was there but the files were only 2KB - much too small for the number of tabs.

So I installed ShadowExplorer & Shadowcopyview to see if I could recover older versions I was able to locate jsonlz4 files from a few days ago that were around 11000KB in size so I assumed they would have most of my tabs

However when trying to use the files nothing happens - I tried 2 different steps that I read here had worked for others

1 - Renaming previous.jsonlz4 to sessionstore.jsonlz4 , moving to the profile folder (deleting the old one first) and restarting FF

2 - Deleting sessionstore.jsonlz4 and copying the recovered previous.jsonlz4 / recovery.baklz4 /recovery.jsonlz4 / upgrade.jsonlz4-20201014125134 files to the sessionstore-backups folder and restarting FF

I also repeated the steps after creating a separate profile

None of these worked so I tried examining the jsonlz4 files using https://www.jeffersonscher.com/res/scrounger.html but I got an error message 'Session history file contents could not be read?'

Now I've previously used recovered Jsonlz4 files to restore tabs with no issues but this time they won't work

I read here https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/1189759 that updates may cause compatibility issues and the upgrade.jsonlz4-20201014125134 file indicates they was a recent update

The recovered file sizes indicate they contain data so I want to know how I can recover it - if not through FF then through some other software

I'm using macbook, firefox version 82.0.

My firefox doesn't not startup with previous sessions. it only shows one blank tab no matter what I had when I closed it. happens both when I simply close it or completely quit it. I marked the "restore previous session" on the startup menu in the preference, didn't help or had any change.

Hi Im writing this post from my kids laptop but the problem is with my computer. I was in the middle of something when computer froze and it is now dead. I was able to check if I can access files from live cd and yeah I can see my files but I need to reinstall windows7. When I do it I will loose my files. I need to recover few more things than just files. The question to you is... how can I recover all my tabs, my open session, all logins, passwords etc in Firefox?. Im hoping it is stored somehow deep in windows and I can just copy/paste these files to new reinstalled windows7

Recently I've been experiencing a weird bug when hovering over tabs (see attached screenshot). This started not too long ago, maybe a month or so. It happens randomly and disappears if I relaunch Firefox. Initially I thought that this only occurred when my computer is connected to an external display, I'm using an old MacBook Pro with an integrated Intel graphics chip. So I figured maybe it was struggling with the resolution of my external monitor. But now it happened without it being connected to the monitor. Has someone experienced this?

I've been having some issues with firefox trying to restore tabs from previous sessions. I've already turned off the option in the settings menu and it doesn't normally do it but occasionally my pc will crash when I have 4-5 tabs open (though that's because I got a bit of a potato laptop because of not reading the fine print but that's neither here nor there) and when this happens and I go to reopen firefox it will try to open those few tabs at once which creates a cycle of my computer freezing up. I tried looking at a couple of firefox help articles and have been directed to this page (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/restore-previous-session) but I can't find the info relevant to my problem.

A very useful feature present in Microsoft Edge is the "Set Aside" button, which places all tabs in a collection to be stored for whenever the user wants to use them again, without bookmarking them individually and organizing them.

A very similar feature to this is the "Collections" in Firefox for Android, which allows to select and store tabs in a collection that can be labeled, and then accessed back later in a section on the home page.

Will/Can Firefox get a feature like this for desktop/multiplatform collections? Otherwise, is there any addon that replicates the function in a similar way?

Dear Mozilla, I'm a very long time Firefox user, and I love it. But I now have what must be well north of 400 open tabs, some of which are no longer relevant, and some are duplicates.

I don't have time to go through them one-by one, (and BTW, I do use bookmarks, FWIW). What I'd like is a tool that would list all of the open tabs, with sufficient descriptive information, beside boxes that I could check to close them.

Is there such a tool?

Thanks very much!

It displays strange characters on pages including Yahoo mail. The attached screen shot shows a bank email, but it happens with other non-secure stuff too like general web pages. This has been happening with version 81.0 and the previous version. If I open the same page in Chrome, it will display the characters normally. I did see the strange characters appear in Chrome one time, but it happens in FF quite frequently.
