I hit the same bug. Usually if there is a problem I can simply take the
sessionstore.bak file and overwrite sessionstore.js to recover but that
is not working.

I really need to get this all back because I have two Firefox windows,
each with about 10-15 open tabs related to my work that is pending or

I notice that every time ff closes it blows away the sessionstore.js
file rather than writing writing out to it, or at least that was the
action without adding any new tabs to the default window. Every time I
start it I get

-rw------- 1 amon amon   167995 2010-02-18 13:37 sessionstore.bak2
-rw------- 1 amon amon      486 2010-02-18 14:00 sessionstore.js

even when I have recreated sessionstore.bak and sessionstore.js from the
'real' backup, bak2.
