How to Reopen Closed Tabs on Firefox

Imagine you are working on an assignment or a project for which you need to do broad research and all of a sudden your browser window gets closed. 

This is a common issue. When multiple tabs are opened in one browser window, you may accidentally close one tab in an attempt to open it. Sometimes due to a Firefox tab crash, your entire browser window may also get closed. There could be many more reasons, for example, sudden power outage, unexpected Windows updates, automatic PC restart, etc. that close all your important tabs and research work all at once.

Many times, we have opened a dozen tabs all at once that we need at the same time. It is not efficient to bookmark all tabs and therefore we keep on restoring those tabs whether or not we need them. An accidental click on ‘X’ is unimaginable, as you can lose all your important research in a second.

In any case, you look for ways to reopen closed tabs in Firefox. For this, there are two methods. To restore closed tabs in Firefox, you can either follow a step of actions in each browser window of Firefox or auto-restore all the tabs in one or many browser windows with just one click. So we’ll go through both methods and see which one is more convenient and efficient.

How to Restore Recently Closed Tabs in Firefox?

There are two ways to undo the close tab in Firefox. 

  1. Right-click on the tab bar, and from the pop-menu, select “Undo Closed Tab”. This will open the tab you closed accidentally. Notice, this will only open the one tab you recently closed.
  2. An alternative is to restore the tab by entering the keystroke shortcut “Ctrl + Shift + T”. This will also open the last closed tab on Firefox.

When you repeatedly use this shortcut “Ctrl + Shift + T”, the browser will keep on opening the previously closed tabs in order.

If you accidentally closed the entire browser window and want to reopen all the closed tabs of that window at once, follow these steps:

  1. Click on the menu button on the right side of the browser toolbar.
  2. Click on the history.
  3. Select “Restore Previous Session”

With these steps, you can reopen the closed tabs in Firefox.
