Hi, I'm running Firefox 59.0.3 on OSX10.11, few days ago I accidentaly closed with the red button insted of using the command close in firefox so I lost my tab session. I thought that firefox would've saved that beacuse I chose the option of showing the previous session when firefox starts, but appartently this doesn't work when you close the window of firefox using the red "X". So I looked for the "restore session" command but I couldn't find it, it is not where it is supposed to be. so the command "restore previous session" is not showing in my browser. I could I fix this issue? Thank you!
