Lost All Firefox tabs....again

  hawthorn59 18:18 18 Sep 2007

For no apparent reason that I can think of, all my saved tabs from the last session had disappeared when I opened Firefox today. This happens regularly and really is beginning to annoy me!

I have no history (set to 0 days) so I cant go back and just open them again! Is there any other way of recovering them, and better still, of preventing this happening again?

Finally would Opera be better as a browser?

Hi, what method are you using to save your tabs?

All down to personal choice. Use whichever one you prefer.

Thanks folks but on this occasion it looks like Ive lost them!

Im finding Opera good (I just downloaded it), as Im tired of Firefox losing all my tabs when it feels like it.

To restore tabs you've already lost from a closed Firefox session, just replace your profile's sessionstore.js file with its backup, sessionstore.bak, by renaming sessionstore.bak to to sessionstore.js. Details here (a lifesaver!) - click here
