"Restore previous session" setting being ignored

Veröffentlicht

In my preferences I have "Restore previous session" checkbox checked and "Warn you when quitting the browser" unchecked. However I get a warning when I quit the browser with multiple tabs open, and my old tabs don't reopen when reopening Firefox.

I think this has started happening since updating to Catalina. Any ideas what might be going wrong?

Make sure you do not close open windows, but close the Firefox application (Firefox -> Quit) while all window(s) are still open because otherwise session restore won't work properly.

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

  • do not clear the Browsing History
  • clearing "Site Preferences" clears exceptions for cookies, images, pop-up windows, and software installation and exception for password and other website specific data
  • clearing "Cookies" will remove all selected cookies including cookies with an allow exception you may want to keep

Thanks cor-el, you're right, clicking the close button means that the session won't be restored. Cmd-Q is needed to allow the session to restore.
