Gave C C Cleaner a try following excellent reports but I now find that it has
removed all open tabs in Firefox on Vista laptop.
This happened last night.
Is there any way to retrieve?
Thanks.

not sure what you are referring by open tabs ,as you are suppose to have firefox closed when you run Ccleaner ,so how could you have had open tabs ,
Cclener need to be setup by you ,to remove what you want and dont want it to remove

Hi Caperjack.
Sorry, I can understand your puzzlement.
I was referring to the tabs that were open before I exited Firefox.
When I restarted they had disappeared.

In Tools Options General you set:

matter how many you had in use.

ok,so they would have been kept in a chache i suspect and ccleaner cleaned that when it ran ,gone

Not this time.
To retain your tabs, go into CCleaner preferences and uncheck the Firefox preference 'Session'

OK.
Will do that now.
Thanks nullptr.
