Firefox: Want to return to a previous tabbed "save and quit" state

I had a lot of firebox tabs open across several browser sessions.  I usually select the "save and exit" option when I need to reboot the machine but want to save all the browser sessions.

Unfortunately after a particular software application installed a toolbar, when I next loaded Firefox those previous sessions did not load.  I know you can view histories and recently closed tabs, but this is not good enough for me as some of the previous screens were opened some weeks ago and my histories contains too much info.

Is there a way to load back into a previously Firefox hibernated state or save and quit state?  Is there a file on the hard drive which can be pointed to, to make this happen?

Session data is stored in the sessionstore.js file, located in the profile folder.

I do not know if you can pick and choose through previous sessions or not, but I would make a copy of it, before installing any add-ons in case the add-on deletes old to start a new sessionstore.js file that it can control.  Just covering my butt.
