3 days ago Restore previous session stopped working. I lost a LOT of tabs. At the same time, firefox began opening to an empty tab labeled New Tab. When that New Tab is the only thing open in the browser, I can click the hamburger icon to get to the menu, but clicking Preferences does nothing. If I click the plus for a new tab, I get my actual new tab (which is Google) and the Preferences is accessible.

I have reset the checkbox for Restore previous session but it is too soon to know if that will hold.

I have seen suggestions to refresh Firefox as a possible fix. Is there a good way to set up to recover my extensions when I do that? Do I just need to reenable them afterward? Or will they be gone and need to be reloaded?

Are you using Citrix ?

We have seen reports that this is a problem with the icaclient.
