How to Restore Previous Session in Firefox

This is a great feature as when you’re in haste and you want to resume your browsing from where you left i.e. closed firefox. This is not about reopening closed tabs. To¬† reopen accidentally closed tabs, all you need to do is to right click on any new or active tab and select the option – undo close tab – This will restore accidentally or intentionally closed tabs during a session.
