Dear Madam/Sir,

My computer had a crash today, after that windows was working on some updates. The firefox was updated also, I believe.

Since the updates, whenever the Firefox is closed and later opened again, the previous session is not restored. I have checked the General -> Start-up -> Open previous windows and tabs setting, and the option is ticked, (therefore it should do the session restore).

A have also tried "browser.sessionstore.resume_session_once" changing to "true" and that did not work either, so no previous tabs were restored.

Any ideas, what could have gone wrong and how to this this issue?

In case you use "Clear history when Firefox closes".

  • do not clear the "Browsing history" as this affects Session Restore

Also make sure that you do not use Private Browsing mode.
