Restore Previous Session

Post by BobH »

Before installing 86.0.1 the Restore Previous Session option caused all tabs open the last time Firefox was closed to open when Firefox was restarted. It no longer works. I've tried finding information from Mozilla forums without success. I even downloaded a fresh copy, uninstalled the old copy, and reinstalled the fresh copy and get the same results. I've tried closing using the Red X - the way I have closed it for years - and using the Exit function from the File menu and from the 'hamburger' drop down menu. I get the same results regardless. When Firefox reopens there is a single New Tab open, not the half dozen or so that were open when I shut FF down. Yes, I have the option chosen as shown.

Has anyone else experienced this and resolved it?

It works fine for me, but I guess that doesn't help you much!

Thanks, Stuart. At least I know that it is not a universal problem. There is probably a setting somewhere that I need to change.
