open previous windows and tabs
Hello. I have a problem. I'm a new macbook owner, installed firefox and I'm having trouble restoring tabs. I have the "open previous windows and tabs" option checked, and yet when I close firefox and go back in, it shows me the start page instead of what it was before closing. I don't know where to look for help and what the problem is. Regards

On Mac closing Firefox can be more complicated because you can close all open windows, but keep Firefox running with the menu bar visible or minimized in the Doc.
Make sure to use "Quit Firefox" with all windows still open, especially if you want to use "Restore Previous Session". Otherwise check "History -> Restore Previous Session" and "History -> Recently Closed Tabs/Windows".
Also, what do you have set here? see screenshot Make sure Browsing & download history is not checked.
I think I found the cause. When I close firefox with the X in the taskbar, the pages will not open. In turn, when I close from the dock. That's when the pages come in
