I don't know if it is because i closed firefox task end, or if it is a bug from update to v119 (when i reopened firefox, there was the updated tab). But now when i fly my pointer on "recently closed tab", instead of only having the 15 last closed tab of my current firefox windows, i have also the 15 of each opened firefox windows. means if i have 2 page it show 30 tabs, etc. the first 15 being the tab of the current windows (ex: FF windows 1) and the 15 next for the other opened one (FF windows 2), when i check "recently closed tab" on the other windows it is reversed (the 15 first tab are the windows 2 closed ones, and the 15 next from the windows 1). It is me, or a global bug (or new feature). If the second, how to return to the former option (means having only the tab closed from the current windows showing)

I notice some browser.sessionstore*closed prefs that might be relevant got added in 119, you can try to set some to false for features that you do not need.
  • browser.sessionstore.closedTabsFromAllWindows
  • browser.sessionstore.closedTabsFromClosedWindows
You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. On the warning page, you can click "Accept the Risk and Continue" to open about:config.

Thks, switching browser.sessionstore.closedTabsFromAllWindows to false removed the tab closed in another windows.
