For years, it was possible to click "restore previous session" to get back all one's tabs after some problem. Now it's gone. Have you seen the hundreds and hundreds of people putting this question into Help? With no answers? Has this feature been unwisely removed with the latest upgrade, or hidden somewhere completely unintuitive?

Actually it is called "Open previous windows and tabs". You can find this under the startup setting in "Settings -> General -> Startup".
