Where has the "Restore Previous Session" button gone to?

Updated to this latest version only to find that the "Restore Previous Session" button has disappeared.

Is there a way to get back this button?

It's still there under history on my FF 53.0.2

Yes, it's still there under history but the button in the Firefox Start page at the bottom is missing.

Can't help you there, don't use the start page, always open to google myself.

OK. Am I right to say that you set Google as your home page? Is the 'Restore Previous Session' there at the bottom of the page?

Yes it is my home page, no restore previous session.

Earlier versions do have that button. I use dit quite often, but now, it's gone.

If I change my home page to the default FF start page I get it.

That doesn't show the 'Restore Previous Session' button. I know how to change the homepage. :)

I want to bring back the 'Restore Previous Session' button (like previous older versions of FF) on the homepage.

Its still there as it was mentioned earlier, its under History.

Personally I've never used it. When you first open the history they are non functioning. To activate I had to open a web page (PF1), close off the browser, open the browser again then it allowed the previous session to be clicked and opened. ( hope that makes sense)

The other way to get history, from the 3 horizontal bars top right - click on Customize select the history Icon and left click Drag it to the top bar. That also has Restore Previous Session.

Re-installed Win10 and installed FF, -- the 'Restore Previous Session' button has returned!

I suggest you uninstal the version of Firefox you have and get the latest version 53.0.3. It has the "Restore Previous Session" button...... I remember doing an update of FFox a little while back and there was no Restore Previous button which was PITA. All is good now I have v53.0.3 (x86)...whoops I didn't see all the replies to your thread and your final post before I commented.
