So... I read that it was possible to fix this by clicking 'Reset Firefox'... Which I did. It proceeded to create a new profile for me. Okay, right... I've lost everything. Add-ons, tabs, etc. No problem, I'll just re-enable the old profile. And guess what..? That stupid feature removed the old profile as well!! The entire folder, including all of my manual backups!
WAY TO GO AGAIN, FIREFOX!
I'm hereby pledging that I will NEVER again use Firefox as my browser. Just like Internet Explorer, it will now be relegated to "stupid browser that I have to provide REASONABLE support for, meaning I'll try to run it once a year and see if it doesn't break everything Chrome and Opera render correctly..."
Man, I'm pissed! I lost something like 600 tabs in the process!! And because their profiles are stored in the main Windows drive, I couldn't even manually recover my old files with Recuva. I only managed to recover a 2013 session, yay, good for me... -_-
One year of new tabs lost -- and one year of old tab cleanup, too. And of course Firefox 35 won't load this session anyway, I'm just stuck with an old JSON file that I'll have to manually cruise through to get my tab list, or I'll have to downgrade Firefox, I don't know... Still, great.

Phew... I guess I'm not done yet; it simply moved the profile to a new folder on my desktop. (I never use the desktop; I only read this on their troubleshooting pages.)
Guess I'll try and downgrade, now...

Phew... Fixed. I had to downgrade to v32, and then I was able to restore my old session. Good.
Now I just need to find a way to have both v32 and the latest version running around, with different profiles for each... :-/
