Having problems restoring tabs when closing a window on Mac

since the latest version of Firefox I have a problem that tabs are not going to be restored when closing just the window. On Mac closing the window means pressing the red bulb in the top left corner, which actually keeps Firefox running in the background. I know that it was different in previous versions. There the last open tabs were reopened when creating a new first window. Now sessions are only restored when Firefox is shutdown explicitly (CMD+Q) and then restarted. Option for session restore is set. I tried to fix that by using the addon Tab Session Manager, however, this is not the behavior I'm used to. I also deleted my old profile (all my urls, etc. are gone now ... :( ), no effect.

Anyone know if something has changed for sessions? Or is it just me having such a problem?

Regards, Thomas

You would have to reopen a closed window to get back its tabs.
