I have Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit PC.

Start Firefox and open up 4 tabs with different websites for each tab.

With the 4th tab displaying, close Firefox

Wait until all instances of Firefox in Task Manager have ended

Restart Firefox

The restore previous session loads the 4 tabs but does not display tab 4 being the last tab showing when closed. It displays a blank page and is totally unresponsive. Starting a new tab (5) is also unresponsive. Yet the other 3 tabs work fine.

Steps taken – uninstalled Firefox and deleted existing profile then reinstalled Firefox with a new profile but no change. No add-ons, bookmarks, history or settings changed.

Please help.

Been happily using firefox for months now with same privacy settings:

History:

- Use custom settings
- Clear history when firefox closes -> settings: all except cookies checked

Cookies and Site Data:

- Accept cookies, Keep until Firefox is close
- In Exceptions I've got bunch of sites with allowed cookies

So, normally all cookies except allowed ones have been cleared on firefox exit. But now for some reason cookie exceptions list disappears on exit.

Something I've already tried:

- It happens when all extensions are disabled
- deleted permissions.sqlite

Any ideas?
