With the new update v18 when I go to open firefox after a couple of hours my tabs that are supposed to stay open close.


Prior to the most recent mobile update my firefox tabs remained open in my browser until I restarted my phone or the browser crashed. Now when I go to open firefox after a few hours the tabs will all automatically close and I have to reload all my previous tabs which is getting very annoying. I cannot find a setting to change this. I have a Samsung Galaxy SIII and prior to this update had NO problems. Any help figuring out how to keep my tabs open would be appreciated.

I would suggest you to uninstall it form you device them reinstall it.

Thanks for the reply, but I wanted to provide an update that uninstalling and reinstalling did not fix the issue. It is still closing out all my tabs when the program is idle for more than two (approx) hours.
