My old hard drive died I couldn't recover it. I cannot mount the disk to another OS etc. The session files cannot be retrived. However I had over 100 tabs open in Firefox I want to retrieve before the disk crashed. I was signed in to firefox all the time in the old computer.

I now have a new computer, I signed in to firefox and I can recover the bookmarks. But I don't see any option to recover the lots of tabs and sessions from my previous dead disk. It seems there is tab sync options between 2 devices that is concurrently signed in. But I can't sign in to a dead disk. I also can't recover the file.

How can I reteive my old sessions with many tabs? I'm hoping firefox have a way of knowing all my tabs since I was signed in and sync before the disk crash.

The harddrive can no longer be detected by the bios, while other hard drives works fine. So in other words it is no longer functional and is not an OS issue.

It is a SSD

Thanks for answering.

Synced tabs requires both devices to be login to firefox at the same time in order to sync. However given that my old computer is dead, and the hard drive is broken and unable to be mounted or detected by bios, it cannot work for me.

Same answer to the first reply, all the provided links requires access to a hard drive I no longer can.

Is there a way to recover my tabs base on servers and databases on the firefox side?

So can put in an external case and then try to access it.

I'm kind of pissed that both time you made a reply with a complete blind eye to my clear description! This is quite insulting! How much more clear can I be when I said "disk crashed", "dead disk", "cannot recover the file", "hard drive is broken and cannot be mounted"? Obviously if I can put the disk to another computer and get it to work I would already have. Don't assume you are the only person who knows how to put together computer hardware.

(I paid a small fortune to recover a crashed SSD four years ago. It's much more expensive than a spinning drive, so most people aren't going to do it unless the boss will pay for it.)

You can check what data is in the Sync cloud for your Mozilla Account using the About Sync add-on:

https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/about-sync/

After you install the add-on, you can type or paste about:sync in the address bar and press Enter to load it. The page shows each category of data currently found in the Sync cloud.

Anything useful under tabs -- check the Records mini-tabs.
