I lost most of my tabs & don't know how to restore the the old tabs in the new version. It also messed up my print settings. Some apparant add-ons like drop dupe tabs don't work even though they survived the update. Let's focus on the restore however for the sake of this item.

Do you have a backup?
At the least, backup what you have now, including the /sessionstore-backups/ directory.

Please tell me the choices for backup & how to do it.

See this thread for information on backing up your profile -- http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_backup
Note that MozBackup is no longer being supported by the author. It may work well for restoring data to the same Firefox version as the backup was made from but not when moving forward or back in the versions. Also, if using MozBackup,m be sure to test restoration of the profile when everything is working properly before relying on it to recover from a profile failure.
