Firefox crashed while automatically downloadingthe latest version, and when I reopened it, it did not give me the option of restoring my lost tabs. Is there any way to recover them now?

I don't know what more details to offer. The browser crashed, all my open tabs were lost, and when I restarted Firefox, it did not give me the option of restoring the tabs. I really want them back. Is there any way to roll back and recover them?

That gripes me to no end, as well. You might think Mozilla could think this one through, at least to the point of realizing there should be a manual means to recover open tabs NOT restored automatically after a routine FireFox crash.
And if Mozilla cannot stabilize FireFox, it will keep losing users back to IE.
The epidemic of crashes seemed to begin when FireFox "improved" itself with the idea of running 3rd party plugins in a "container", which is still far from reliable. I must run SysInternals Process Explorer at least once per Windows session to keep FireFox from destroying itself.
Aside from FireFox being so unstable, Mozilla should show some concern for users and make the manual restore option very plain from the UI-- such as "RESTORE OPEN TABS LOST SINCE THE LAST (*&&!!! FIREFOX CRASH"
Presumably-- and that may presume too much-- Mozilla leaves the open tabs "log" in place during each update. If that record of open tabs remains untouched from update to update, then why does FireFox screw up, update after update, and routinely fail to recover all tabs?
You might think someone at Mozilla would realize something is wrong. I have let Mozilla "phone home" after each crash, and yet the problem continues.

  • Hello,there are approximately three months I uninstalled firefox and lost some documents.Is there any way to recover them,now that I installed again?Thank you.

    most lost are documents...

    If you mean files (personal data like bookmarks) in the Firefox profile folder and you had chosen to remove personal data when uninstalling Firefox then that data is lost.

    I suggested contacting Compub in Nassau St as the info is priceless and worth the trouble of trying to regain?
    Any thoughts? The poor lady is very distress

    If she has backed up her iPhone she can replace that iPhone and set up the new iPhone from her backup.
    You can put the iPhone that went into water into a plastic baggie with either new silica gel packets (preferred) or raw rice and let it sit for  4 - 5 days. After that time remove the phone and connect it to power for at least a half hour. While it is still connected to power reset it by holding down the power and hold button, wait for the Apple logo then let go of the buttons. Might take several tries. If it revives immediately back it up.

    Sorry no as you wipe the current data when you restore from your backup.

    If you press Ctrl+n to open a new window, does it have all the menus and toolbars?
    If you restart Firefox, does the display return to normal?
    If those don't work, you could try Firefox's Safe Mode. This will let you temporarily disable add-ons to work around any problem there.
    You might want to back up Firefox before using Safe Mode. For help with that, see [https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Backing+up+your+information Backing up your information].
    Next, try starting Firefox in Firefox
    [http://support.mozilla.com/kb/Safe+Mode Safe Mode]. Be careful not to "reset" anything permanently if you didn't back up.
    Does that restore your menus and toolbars?

  • I synced my iphone to a new pc and it updated and a few hundred photos seem to be lost. Is there any way to get them back?

    Hi i synced an iphone to a new pc and it updated and restored the iphone to its original settings. some photos were still there after but a few hundred are now missing. Is there any way to get them back?

    restore from a backup dated prior to when you synced to the new computer.
    ideally... were you backing up to icloud?  if so, erase all content and settings and restore from a backup in icloud dated prior to when you synced.  Camera roll backs up I believe and those photos will show back up

  • While trying to back up my contacts to icloud, I lost them all. Is there any way to recover them?

    Phone: iPhone 4
    iOS: 6.1
    Previous backups: None
    I was syncing my contacts to iCloud (went to Settings > iCloud and turned Contacts to "On"), but after the first 3 contacts, it stopped syncing.
    I went to Settings > iCloud and turned Contacts to "Off". I was given 2 options: "Keep contacts on iPhone" or "Delete contacts from iPhone".
    I selected "Keep contacts". Now all other contacts except those first 3 have been deleted from my phone.
    I have no other backups of my iPhone. Is there any way for me to recover the lost contacts?

    All media and apps on the device should already be in iTunes on the computer.
    If you have forgotten the restrictions passcode, the ONLY option is to restore as new.
    Then sync back any media, apps, contacts, etc back to the device.
    You can not restore from backup as the restrictions passcode is included in the backup.

  • Latest version did not give me the option of saving my bookmarks on screen so I have now lost about 12 of them. I have reverted to a 3.16 on my mac as this does not give me this problem. It was also crashing many times each day. Dreadful.

    The bookmarks are all lost and all related to blog postings that I was planning to do so now cannot relocate where they all came from. When closing down I always got the window which asked if I wanted to save and quit. I downloaded 4.1 last night, never got the window and all were lost this morning when signing on again. I used time machine to get back to your earlier version which still gives me the saving option. This is the only problem that I have ever had with Firefox and I have used it ever since it came out.

  • IPhoto (most recent) just crashed while uploading photos.  It tried to fix itself and in the process erased every single photo.  Is there any way to retrieve them?

    While uploading my family Christmas photos, my computer went completely blank.  When it started back up again, I had a message that iPhoto had been damaged and needed to be corrected.  So I let it restore and it took several minutes.  Then I had a message that it could not find any photos or data and it restart the computer.  If that didn't work it said to push "option and command" buttons while starting iPhoto.  Nothing worked. 
    It appears as though I have lost thousands and thousands of pictures including all vacations, last moment s with my father, kids entire childhoods.  The photos are invaluable.  I understand that they are on the hard drive.  I have had to restore everything from the hard drive once when my laptop was stolen and I lost about a third of the photos because they came back damaged.  I hope this is not the only solution to the problem. 
    Does anyone know how to restore iPhoto or retieve my photos? What happened?  I am guessing iPhoto is not a reliable place to keep my pictures anymore. 
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Do you have a back up?
    What version of iPhoto? Assuming 09 or later:
    Option 1
    Back Up and try rebuild the library: hold down the command and option (or alt) keys while launching iPhoto. Use the resulting dialogue to rebuild. Choose to Repair Database. If that doesn't help, then try again, this time using Rebuild Database.
    If that fails:
    Option 2
    Download iPhoto Library Manager and use its rebuild function. (In early versions of Library Manager it's the File -> Rebuild command. In later versions it's under the Library menu.)
    This will create an entirely new library. It will then copy (or try to) your photos and all the associated metadata and versions to this new Library, and arrange it as close as it can to what you had in the damaged Library. It does this based on information it finds in the iPhoto sharing mechanism - but that means that things not shared won't be there, so no slideshows, books or calendars, for instance - but it should get all your events, albums and keywords, faces and places back.
    Because this process creates an entirely new library and leaves your old one untouched, it is non-destructive, and if you're not happy with the results you can simply return to your old one.

  • A system recovery was performed on my pc. When I re-installed firefox all my bookmarks had disappeared. This happened more than a wk ago so the solution of recovery for 5 days didn't work. Is there any way to recover them from more than 7 days ago?

    On Jun 19 my pc wouldn't load Windows & HP decided to do a system recovery on my pc on Jun 20.
    Prior to the system recovery being performed all of my files & programs were burned onto discs.
    A few days after the recovery was performed I re-installed Firefox. It was the same day that the newest version of Firefox was released. I was unable to reload the version I was previously using (I believe that it was version 4).
    After re-installing Firefox I discovered that I lost all of my Firefox bookmarks.
    I thought that the bookmarks would be on the back-up discs but I can't find them on the system recovery files that I loaded onto my pc.
    I am using Windows 7 Home Premium. I have a HP G60 series laptop.

    Thanks for the info.
    I did find the folder as described above. Under Profiles the sub-directory I found was: t6jyvmtf.default
    There are 2 files in that sub-directory:
    blocklist - which is an XML document &
    bookmarks - which is Firefox document
    When I selected bookmarks the document that opened does not contain (to my knowledge) the bookmarks.
    The heading for the page is '''''Bookmarks''''' & right underneath that heading is '''Get Bookmark Add-ons'''
    Underneath that is a heading '''Bookmarks Toolbar Folder''' with the following under it:
    Add bookmarks to this folder to see them displayed on the Bookmarks Toolbar, Getting Started & Latest Headlines
    That is followed by the heading '''Mozilla Firefox''' which has the following underneath it:
    Help and Tutorials, Customize Firefox, Get Involved & About Us
    I checked each of the items that could be selected but none of them had my bookmarks.
    I also checked the blocklist XML document - it opened Windows Internet Explorer with what appears to be programming language (although I could be wrong). At the top of the document it says - ?xml version="1.0" ?
    followed by
    - <blocklist xmlns="http://www.mozilla.org/2006/addons-blocklist">
    Should I be selecting one of the above to find the bookmarks & I'm just not seeing it?

  • HT4236 I tried to synch to iTunes and it deleted the photos on my phone instead. Is there any way to retrieve them?

    I recently lost all of my files do to a hard drive crash. The backup service (which I will never use again) didn't back all of my photos up, but I had them on my phone. I hooked the phone up and it automatically went into some sort of synch mode, but instead of putting the photos onto iTunes, it deleted all of the photos from my phone! Now they are synched with the smaller set, and I've lost precious photos! I'm so upset!! Is there anything I can do or is it lost.
    I have some on my iTunes but I'm afraid to synch and loose those as well. can someone help me?
    I'm on iPhone 4
    iTunes 10.7
    thank you

    Quit the photos app
    Double tap home button, hold icon til it wiggles the tap the red dot
