I lose saved tabs after closing Firefox 7.0.1/Vista

I have configured FF through Options to save tabs when closing. I shut down my system every night, and approximately once every 2 weeks when restarting FF it can't recover my previous session. The "We're embarrassed..." window option to restore tabs is grayed out. History... Restore Previous Session is grayed out, so I can't restore that way. Closing FF and restarting it doesn't solve the problem. I am also experiencing crashes once every 1-2 weeks. Is this loss of saved sessions a known bug?

A possible cause is an update of Firefox.

If you notice an update then try to close Firefox via Firefox/File > Exit instead of clicking the Apply Update button.

I was having FF automatically install updates. I changed it to manual and will see if it helps. Thanks.
