I set the browser to Open previous windows and tabs at restart, on General settings, but it always opens blanc, not saving any tab from the previous session.

How can I correct this issue, if it is one, please?

Chosen solution

See:

Did you check "History -> Restore Previous Session" ? Are you closing Firefox via the menu or do you let Windows close Firefox?

Use one of these to close Firefox if you are currently doing that by clicking the close X on the Firefox Title bar, especially if you have multiple windows or Private Browsing windows open to prevent losing tabs in unnoticed windows.

  • "3-bar" menu button -> Exit (Power button)
  • Windows: File -> Exit
  • Mac: Firefox -> Quit Firefox
  • Linux: File -> Quit

In case you use "Clear history when Firefox closes".

  • do not clear the "Browsing history"
  • using "Clear history when Firefox closes" in Firefox 102+ honors exceptions and keeps cookies with an allow exception, previous versions removed all cookies
  • clearing "Site settings" clears exceptions for cookies, images, pop-up windows, and software installation and exceptions for passwords and other website specific data

It sounds a bit like this other thread, which might make interesting reading (or commiseration?):
