When FF4 crashes and you restore the last session, it opens a new instance of FF for each tab you had open (in addition to restoring the tabs in one FF instance)

Let's say I have 9 tabs open, and FF4.0 crashes. When I restart FF, it asks if I want to restore the previous session, and lists the 9 pages I was on. If I say "yes", it will open the 9 tabs in the instance of FF I have running, AND will also open up 9 new instances (separate windows) of FF (with nothing loaded in them). Seems the restore session is creating a new instance of FF for each tab unnecessarily. There is only one firefox.exe running in the Task Manager, if that helps.
