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!

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.
