Restore previous session not available / tabs from previous settings are not restored
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.
- Settings -> Privacy & Security
Firefox will: "Use custom settings for history":
[X] "Clear history when Firefox closes" -> Settings
- using "Clear history when Firefox closes" in Firefox 102+ honors exceptions and keeps cookies with an allow exception, previous versions removed all cookies
- clearing "Site settings" clears exceptions for cookies, images, pop-up windows, and software installation and exceptions for passwords and other website specific data
