Firefox isn't saving previously opened tabs when I shut down
This is kind of a weird problem...I recently upgraded to Windows 11, and I started using multiple desktops. I then opened up Firefox on each desktop, and I think that's where the problem began.
I have different tabs opened on each iteration of Firefox, but when I closed down Firefox on Desktop 1, it didn't save any of my tabs when I opened it up again. I tried to repeat the problem on Desktop 2, but instead Firefox behaved normally and saved the session. I've tried looking online for an answer to this, and i have no idea what's going on.
Has anyone encountered a similar issue? If so, how do you fix this?

You aren't using permanent Private Browsing mode (Always use Private Browsing mode; Never Remember History) ?
Use one of these to close Firefox if you are currently doing that by clicking the close X on the Firefox Title bar, especially if you have multiple windows open to prevent losing tabs in unnoticed windows.
- "3-bar" menu button -> Exit (Power button)
- Windows: File -> Exit
- Mac: Firefox -> Quit Firefox
- Linux: File -> Quit
