This is the third time, since the latest major OSX update (Ventura), that the window I had on top when I put my computer to sleep has been missing when I re-awaken my computer. All other windows remain where, and as, they should be.
- It does not appear in "recently closed windows"(!!)
- It does it show up when I try "about:sessionrestore" (the restore option is greyed out; list is empty).
- When I try typing the URL of a tab from the missing window, it shows up in my search suggestions as remembered history, but not as a "switch to tab" option, as it would if the window still existed somewhere.
- Trying to recreate the missing window from my history isn't possible, as the date filing for history is apparently when the tabs were opened/"created", not what was actually open on a particular date.
- In one case (not today's occurance), when I started typing a URL from the missing window into a different window's tab, the missing window suddenly reappeared, sweeping in from the left, as if it had been hiding off-screen, waiting to be called back. But the other two times, that has not happened.
- I had about half of the tabs bookmarked, but I had so many tabs open in that window (things I was tracking short-term) that I don't even know what all I'm missing, yet.
- My list of "recently closed windows" only shows three windows (which shouldn't matter--it would have had to have been the last window closed), instead of the 10 it was previously set to. How did that get changed and how do I put it back to 10?
- None of the missing tabs show up in "recently closed tabs"
It's like the window simply vanished, with no trace of it having ever existed. Even though the window itself had been open for months, and contained a handful of permanently open, always-use-them tabs (e.g., my email client). Very frustrating.
So I have a few questions:
1. Is anyone else having this problem?
2. How do I give Mozilla feedback about this unfortunate behavior?
3. How do I determine if the problem is Mozilla or Ventura--I suspect it is how they play together. So who needs to know?
4. Any other suggestions on how I can get back my missing window when it disappears?
