Since the actual firefox-version 35.0 is updated, some unusual problems with firefox can be noticed. For example if starting firefox with several windows and with opening the last session of firefox, the order of the windows are not the same as before and I have to close some windows to set them in the order as before. And if some tabs in a window are closed and I have opened them again, they are not opened separately one after another, but only one tab in which all the closed tabs are opened then after another, but the previous ones are overdubbed from the following ones. Only if the closed tabs are opened simultaneously, then all the closed tabs are opened separately again as before, but not at the same place of the tabs in the window as before.

Chosen solution

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem.

  • Switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance
  • Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe Mode start window

Hi pemigabo123,

  • Are you restoring the session from about:sessionrestore, or do you open the windows from last time when you start Firefox?
  • And is there a difference when you change these features?

Hello guigs2,

I am usually using sessionrestore when firefox has started and to click on button "start last session" in firefox-start-window. All windows from the last session are opened then, but not as before in the same order. And the order of the firefox windows are in accidental mode, only the first ones are fixed and the same as before, and every time the last ones are not as same as before, but in accidental order.

Hello cor-el,

thank you for your message. At the moment I do not want to start firefox in safe mode with deactivated add-ons, because I am working on something on PC which takes some time. I will start firefox in safe mode after some time in a few days.
