Tabs Not Reopening

On Startup: - "Open previous windows and tabs." Yes, I have this checked, but it ain't actually doing it. What's the solution?

True or False? If this box is checked I can quit Firefox altogether which tabs still open, and those same tabs will automatically load again upon reopening Firefox.

(Upon writing back, please refrain from thanking me for anything.)

On Mac closing Firefox can be more complicated because you can close all open windows, but keep Firefox running with the menu bar visible or minimized in the Doc.

Make sure to use "Quit Firefox" with all windows still open, especially if you want to use "Restore Previous Session". Otherwise check "History -> Restore Previous Session" and "History -> Recently Closed Tabs/Windows".

I have this problem too. I will try the "Quit Firefox" suggestion, since I have a Mac. Thanks!

However, simply clicking Otherwise check "History -> Restore Previous Session" and "History -> Recently Closed Tabs/Windows" is not a solution. It only opens your previous 3 tabs, which is usually far too few for most.

You can set via prefs on the about:config page how many tabs and windows you can restore.
