So there was an issue where my browser stopped automatically restoring my previous session after closing it. I followed some instructions I found online that told me to tick the option for it under Options -> General -> Startup, and this fixed the problem. However, this seemed to have caused my browser to directly close and stop asking me to save and quit even while browser.ShowQuitWarning is set to true in about:config.

If I tick off the option to automatically restore my previous session, however, I do get a warning that tells me I'm about to close my browser, but it only gives me the options to close tabs and cancel closing my browser; the option to save & quit is absent entirely.

That's about everything I know that could be related to this issue.

So this happened today: - Firefox did an update while I was playing. - Suddenly I noticed the icon became a blank page and when I clicked it Windows informed me, that firefox isn't on my PC. (Uninstalled itself for some reason?) - Since then Firefox won't ask if I want to save my tabs so I have to manually restore previous session every time. ShowQuitwarning is set ot be enabled. I tried deleting/renaming sessionstore.js and prefs.js - When I restored ShowQuitwarning it says it isn't a boolean, but a string variable. I assume something got corrupted, by have no idea what and how to restore besides a full reinstall? (In the meantime the option seems to have vanished fully, it is not present in about:config)
