Firefox only restores last 3 windows open, doesn't show recently windows from last session, doesn't add restored windows to recent history
Every time I have a series of windows open, I want to restore the whole session when I re-open.
However, say I have 5 windows open: if it gives the option to "Restore Session" in the main window, Firefox will only restore the last 3 windows and will not store any other windows in 'recent windows' or 'recent tabs'. If it gives an option to "Restore Session" it doesn't store anything in the 'recent windows/recent tabs' drop-down. If it DOESN'T give an option to "Restore Session" it will only store the last 3 windows in the 'recent windows' section and nothing in 'recent tabs'. If I chose to "Restore Session" or open 'recent windows' it does not re-enter those windows into my current history.
The combination of the above problems is making Firefox unusable for me.
Why is this happening? Chromium does not have this issue, but I would prefer to use Firefox for the customization and general aesthetic of the interface.
