This is a continuation of my previous problem report, which was archived WITHOUT A RESOLUTION.
I had a recurrence of the problem this morning. FF was using lots of CPU, so I cancelled it via the task manager. FF was not displaying the menu bar (to allow me to do a clean Exit); instead it was displaying "(not responding)". After FF terminated, I restarted it. I saw the (somewhat usual) "Embarrassing" screen. It told me that FF would start with 13 windows. But when FF started, it only had 12 windows; one that I needed was missing. So I did an Exit and a restart, and all 13 windows started.
Previously I had saved (and post-processed) many sessionstore.js, restore.js, sessionstore.bak, and recovery.bak files, and all had all of my windows. It is obvious from my experience this morning that FF knows that I have 13 windows.
My question is this - As no one can tell me why this is happening, is there anything I can do when the problem recurs to get diagnostic data from the running FF? I am a retired systems programmer who spend 25+ years working with iBM mainframe system dumps. Note that I ALWAYS run FF in safe mode.
