Before updating to Firefox 96, I could close tabs no matter how squished they were. Now I cannot. Someone with a similar problem at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1194322 was able to find help, but I'm not meeting with any success implementing their chosen fix. Is there a way to keep the close tab button active with this many tabs anymore, or is that out?

Can't restore previous session, "recently closed windows" grayed out

Hi

I had two Firefox windows open. One with 100+ tabs and the other with 1 tab. I closed the Firefox with 100 tabs, and then closed the one with 1 tab, without thinking. I then realised that I should have closed them in the opposite order, because I want the 100 tabs to get restored.

I opened Firefox again and was dismayed to see just the single tab get restored. I did some searching and backed up the "sessionstore-backups" folder.

I then tried to close Firefox and replace sessionstore.jsonlz4 with previous.jsonlz4 from the backed up "sessionstore-backups" folder. This did not work, as when I opened Firefox I still only got the 1 tab back and "recently closed windows" remains grayed out. Ctrl+Shift+N does nothing as well.

I used https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/scrounger.html to inspect the backed up previous.jsonlz4 file and it shows

Open Windows Open Window 1 Tab 1 [...]

Closed Windows Closed Window 1 Tab 1 [...] [...] Tab 125 [...]

So the previous.jsonlz4 file does contain my mistakenly closed window but I can't get Firefox to restore the tabs!

Can anyone please help me get my tabs back? I'm on Firefox v96.0.1.

So i just started having issues where my pc is starting to hot and won't boot up fully. I am working on that but i can hook up the ssd i have in that computer to another work computer that i have but it does not have all of my work stuff since i have been working from home due to covid. Is it possible to load up the session i had on my original ssd that is now currently going to be setup as an external drive for my work computer until i can fix my home pc? I ask because i had alot of tabs open with work related stuff that i had not bookmarked at the time so i really need to restore that session so i can recover that work. Any help would be much appreciated.

Hello. My pinned tabs keep disappearing - I now understand what is causing this, but I'm wondering if there is a workaround? I'd really like for my pinned tabs to show on any/every new Firefox window.

ISSUE: If I have more than one Firefox window open, and at some point during the day I close them in the wrong order, I lose all of my pinned tabs, permanently.

As an aside ... just in case the devs are reading: this seems like a very bizarre choice for default behaviour; why make it so incredibly easy for a user to unwittingly lose potentially dozens of pinned links? It's also not very obvious why it happens and have seen numerous people struggling with this issue. However, I appreciate that's how it is, so I'm simply hoping there's a solution :)

Before anyone says: 'just use tabs instead', I normally do, however, for reasons I won't go into (related to a very popular 3rd party plugin) some things open in a new window by default - there is no option to open them in a new tab, so I regularly end up with more than one Firefox window, and it would be nice to know that one false move doesn't decimate all the pinned tabs I've made.

Hello, Firefox support team!

Could you help me, how can I ultimately, once for all the time, for all the modes restrict to open new windows? The problem is the Firefox browser open new windows if the browser was closed and Im open a link from a different application (cant solve that at all). Or it was opened but somehow for some sites it opens a window instead of tabs. To be honest it can be a big and annoying issue on mac, if me app in full screen mode. And in genereal also. It is something I dont expect from app. I tried all the variants I found or learned in about:config which a connected with windows. It not helped me at all.

I always have automatic updates enabled, using latest Firefox version. I have enabled the options 'Open Previous Windows and tabs' or in earlier versions it was 'restore previous sessions' on my system windows 10 pro from past 2 years.

I have lost about 15+ precious tabs in firefox (1 week of my research work). Even in history it is not showing those tabs.

I was doing my research work / thesis, gone through about 500+ webpages / articles and selected the best, and aligned the tabs in sequence. Today i have opened the 'Private Window' doing some surfing, After few minutes I closed my 'Firefox window of research' as that was using 'too much' amount of ram. After 15 minutes i have closed the 'Private Window' also.

When i opened firefox again all my tabs of Research Windows (1 week of my work) are gone, not even in history.

I must be using Google Chrome for that because chrome does not have any issues with 'Restoring Sessions' with 'Incognito Window'.

Every time Firefox throws out an update, it's a blind gamble as to whether the tabs, that were such a labor to get back below the bookmark bar after the LAST update, will appear again back at the top. Somehow the userChrome.css gets jazzed or some other thing is different. Then, suddenly, all you see are desperate people posting about how to get the tabs back where they belong. For the love of God Almighty on a roller coaster, isn't anyone at Mozilla thinking that it might be time to just make this a setting? I know I'm not the first person to request this. Which is all the more reason to make it a priority. Please. Shake somebody.

Please help, I just screwed up so bad I accidentally pressed the red "close" button on Firefox on my Mac instead of the yellow "minimise" button and lost a bunch of tabs I need (they were from a while back so not in history)

There is no option to "restore previous session" or "reopen tabs" is there any way whatsoever to recover my lost tabs I am freaking out big time there was some really important stuff in there that I hadn't bookmarked yet like an absolute IDIOT!!! My session had stayed active through computer being shut down and restarted and Firefox updates but pressing the red "close" button has seemingly nuked it. Is there a way to go into folders and find the tabs? Anything please help :(

Any help appreciated, I'm desperate.

Hello,

Really really frustrating, I had like 30 important tabs open. This Firefox auto-update feature which updates the Firefox and then restart automatically. I've been using this Firefox since years, it does update silently and but I was able to restore the tabs every time.

But this is the first time happened, it updated and restarted , just google opened up. I tried everything I can , restore tabs and all but showing all greyed out, it's gone.

It all happened because of update only, that's exactly the timestamp when it updated and my tabs were gone. IMG attached

I don't understand why Mozilla has this weird set up of installing update silently and then spoiling the tabs and also they erase the default settings. Very disappointed.

Can someone help ? :(

My current browser (version in header), has stopped saving previous session. I followed the advise from FredMcD on this page https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1345654, and the browser is still not saving tabs. From Fred's post, I couldn't find any "sessionstore.jsoniz4" files in the browser folder. I did find the "sessionstore-backup" folder and deleted it. I restarted Firefox, opened a folder and then stopped Firefox and restarted it again, and I only went to the Firefox Home page. The "restore session" box is selected.

What else should I try??
