Session restore stopped working since last update

No matter how I close Firefox, (X, File->Exit, Menu->Exit), if I start it again it doesn't automatically restore the previous session.

If I click on "Menu->restore previous session" it does restore it.

Of course "Restore previous session" is enabled.

Why did it stop working, what changed?

Wow, if the box was checked on the Options page, that should match, so it's a surprise that you had to do it manually. But thank you for reporting back and reminding us that the Options page sometimes doesn't match the internal setting.
