I always use the session manager add on to keep tab of my tabs however i made a mistake and saved a new session to an old sessions name so now the old session now has brrand new tabs and the the older tabs are no longer accessible. The old session had about 405 tabs in it and i went into my deleted and old sessions and could not find any unnamed sessions with that amount of tabs. Would sessionstore bak be of any use to me in this scenario? Can anyone think of anything that could help? Id really appreciate it . Thanks.

Would any of these contain your original 405-tab session:

Tools > Session Manager > Backup Sessions
Tools > Session Manager > Deleted Sessions

thanks diane that was the first plce i looked. the fact i hadnt opened it in so long there were none available. I was wondering if firefox captures snapshots of all sessions from time to time and that is what is stored in sessionstore bak?
