"Show my windows and tabs from last time" not working
I have "show my windows and tabs from last time" selected, but when I close Firefox and then re-open it, it doesn't do it. I'm working on a PC with Windows 7 and Firefox 44.0. Any help greatly appreciated!
You know, it seems to be working now and I didn't do anything. But, thanks for your suggestions!Read this answer in context 👍 0

You may have corrupt sessionstore file(s).
Type about:support in the address bar and press enter.
Under the page logo on the left side you will see Application Basics. Under this find Profile Folder. To it’s right press the button Show Folder. This will open your file browser to the current Firefox profile. Now Close Firefox.
Locate the sessionstore file(s). Then rename or delete them. Restart Firefox.
In case you use "Clear history when Firefox closes" or otherwise clear history.
- do not clear the Browsing History
- Tools > Options > Privacy > Firefox will: "Use custom settings for history": [X] "Clear history when Firefox closes" > Settings
- Clearing "Site Preferences" clears all exceptions for cookies, images, pop-up windows, software installation, passwords, and other website specific data.
- Clearing cookies will remove all selected cookies including cookies with an allow exception you want to keep.
