How can I recover my lost after updating to Firefox v33 tabs?

Problem: After updated to v33, I am unable to restore my lost tabs and GROUP the tabs in my previous session, which was last night at 23:38 UTC

Here are the steps I took:

(1) history > restore previous session is grayed out.

(2) I checked to make sure that I had configured session restore by going to Options > general Panel > when Firefox starts: show my windows and tabs from last time.

(3) I clicked on Firefox > properties > Previous Versions. But since I have never set up any kind of restore configuration, there is no earlier versions available.

(4) I tried to search the sessionstore.js file in my profile folder and replace it with my sessionstore.bak file because this file date has changed to 14/10/2014 18:38. However, I can't find the session.js file and the files only related to sessionstore I see are: session.rdf, sessionCheckpoints.json, sessionstore.bak, sessionstore.bak - 20140923175406.

Help, please! I had a lot of tabs. I don't want to go to history to find my tabs one by one, because I also had groups of tabs that I didn't open in a month or more and each group of tabs have several tabs in them also.

First of all, very important, please make a backup of all files that begin with sessionstore in a safe place, such as your Documents folder.

If the .js extension does not appear on your file sessionstore.js (the session.js file), you can stop hiding file extensions windows, at least temporarily. See:

If sessionstore.js is completely absent, it's very strange. In this case, I suggest to leave Firefox and then rename sessionstore.js sessionstore.bak to see if Firefox can read this file when it starts again.

There are a few techniques to extract the URL of sessionstore.* files which can be useful if sessionstore.bak is not useful.

  • How can I recover a lost product key?

    I have forget my license of Vista and I want to re install on my computer but I knead the license and I lost

    I want just the original key to activate my Vista Business SP1

    No, the thing is the License Key is written @ the back of my PC but the sticker is gone and I need... can I communicate with any body or do something to get it again

    If you reinstall the operating system or restore factory initially provided for the computer disks or if you use on the computer factory restore partition you need not the key product on the sticker of the computer (COA SLP below.)  That is only used when you upgrade the bios of the computer, or another problem it happens that the installer cannot self turn on the computer.

    The following text was published previously in another forum by Darin Smith MS (MSFT) and can probably answer better I could question:

    "Computers, which are built by the large manufacturers come with Windows pre-installed, come with 2 two product keys:

    (A) OEM SLP: this key comes pre-installed in Windows, when it comes to the factory. This key is designed to work with Bios OEM flag only on the hardware of this manufacturer. Then, when Windows was installed using the OEM SLP (in factory) Windows key leans on the motherboard and he sees the flag proper Bios OEM (for the manufacturer and the version of Windows) and activates. (that's why you had no need to turn on your computer after you brought it home)

    (B) SLP COA: it's the product key that you see on the sticker on the side (bottom or sometimes a laptop battery) of your computer. It's a valid product key, but it should be used only in certain situations (for example, this case when OEM SLP key ceases to be activated for some reason any). The key must be activated by phone.

    As long as the installation of Vista came on the computer you won't need the product key.

  • How can I recover photos lost in the conversion of Photos?

    Was > 90 k pictures and nearly 200 albums iPhoto library. Bought a new iMac with El Capitan and convert photo library. After conversion, most of the albums displayed holders place empty, some with title data, but more without. Saved and repair (command option, open Photos). Post a regeneration, it is now only display 8 k photos with about 10 albums. See no reason for what is successful and what was lost, even if the older DSLR photos seem to be most of what has disappeared. Any help would be appreciated.

    first thing I would do is the original library repeat migration - restore your backup of it and drag the backup restored to Photos icon in the Dock to migrate


  • How can I recover a lost file bookmark and content and add to my current boolmarks?

    I tried to access a folder with several subfolders with important favorite Web sites. It's not in my favorites and I searched the entire library. I need to recover this file and add it to my folders of bookmarks existing without change or disrupt the rest of the structure of Web sites or bookmarks. I guess I can get bookmarked all the value of an earlier date, but I need just to this folder. I unfortunately did not a recent backup so I don't have the ability to recover from my backup. In that case, might do the same to my backup copy of my favorites?

    If you did a lot of re-organization of your files since your last backup, then you could try the following steps to restore only the missing folder you need (providing that it existed at your last backup).

    1. Save what you have now in a new format JSON backup file;
    2. Restore the previous backup;
    3. Turn off everything except the missing records;
    4. Export to a HTML file.
    5. Restore the backup that you created in step #1; then finally
    6. Import the HTML file created in step #4.

    It is not the most elegant solution, but it will accomplish I hope that what you need, if I understand you correctly.

  • How can I recover my favorites after having reinstalled Win7 and Firefox?

    I had to reinstall Win7 and Firefox and now need to find my bookmarks file and put it back in Firefox. What is called, and where is it located?

    These backup files are compressed and not human readable. You can use it to completely replace your current set of bookmarks using the rollback feature (see beyond the dates at the bottom of the menu "Choose file...).

    Important: A restore completely replaces your current set of bookmarks. If you have saved any new bookmarks you need, add a few steps:

    (1) export current bookmarks to a file as HTML: Export Firefox bookmarks to an HTML file for backup or transfer bookmarks
    (2) then do the restore
    (3) import this file in HTML format: import bookmarks to an HTML file
    (4) move the Bookmarks imported into their correct locations (they should be a folder of bookmarks imported somewhere on the menu bookmarks or Unsorted bookmarks)

  • Tabs, windows and lost after updating to Firefox and page seems gross

    I don't think that you have respect for those who use Firefox. Do you understand how many of us work for the House and need this platform to work for our COMPANY? I think you play games with users, at our expense.

    So furious that I must try to solve your problems when I have to work. Last night you gave me a message to try to refresh. You said that everything would be saved.

    I TRUSTED YOU. Available on the page at the top has been terrible, and I don't know where my addons went. Still, it seems impractical. but at least my tabs were all there.

    Today, you have LOST ALL MY TABS except the ones pinned. All the windows gone, too. I copied the sqlt places of my old Firefox Desktop data to the new folder AppData profile several times. Never worked. FF just kept coming back to show me the pinned tabs.

    Really, you evaluate these things first? I want to completely delete this useless refresh and come back when things worked.

    Please, take a deep breath. Now:

    There is no way one click to cancel a refresh, but here is a procedure to return to your prior to refresh the data. It takes 5 minutes, but it's perhaps faster than the recovery of individual files and load those into your new profile.

    Check in the folder 'Old data Firefox' update adds a folder with a random semi name on your desktop. If there is only one, that probably has your old settings and Add-ons. If there is more than one, you'll want to work with one who has been updated recently.

    Once you have identified the profile folder, that you want to restore, here is my "old profile resurrection suggested procedure:


    Here are the steps described in more detail below:

    1. Create a new Firefox profile
    2. Delete all of this profile folder
    3. Copy in all of the old profile folder

    Create a new profile for Firefox (Windows)

    Exit Firefox completely and start up in the Profile Manager by pasting the following text in the search box of the start menu, or the start > Run dialog box and pressing ENTER:

    firefox.exe -P

    Note: any time want to switch profiles, exit Firefox and return to this dialog box.

    Click on the button create a profile, give it a name like OldSettings and skip the option to change the location of the folder. Select the new profile from the dialog box, and then start Firefox.

    Open the new profile folder in Windows Explorer

    Firefox in the new profile should look like a new installation of the plant. Open the troubleshooting information page by using either:

    • button "3-bar" menu > "?" button > troubleshooting information
    • Menu help > troubleshooting information
    • type or paste everything: in the address bar and press Enter

    In the first table, click on the view file"" button. Firefox will launch your new profile folder in Windows Explorer.

    This folder open, switch back to Firefox and get out by using either:

    • "3-bar" menu button > button "power".
    • (menu bar) File > Exit

    Firefox is closed, the profile folder must be front and Center, or you can activate it by using the taskbar.

    Copy old data instead of new

    In this new profile folder you just popped open - NOT the one on your desktop - select all content (you can use Ctrl + a) and delete (you can press Delete on the keyboard).

    Leave this window open, open or switch to your folder of old data of Firefox. Consult your old profile folder. At this level, you should see a folder named bookmarkbackups among other things.

    Select all (Ctrl + a) and copy (or right-click > copy or Ctrl + c).

    Switch to the empty profile folder in another window and paste (or right-click > paste or Ctrl + v). This may take a few minutes because some files are large.

    Launch Firefox

    Firefox should start in this 'new' profile with the old resurrected profile data. Success?
