When relaunching Aurora, every tab that is reloaded become a blank tab with the title "New Tab"

From time to time (I've been unable to determine a common cause) when I open my Aurora on Windows 7 64bits (and Firefox, and the Firefox on the Windows XP of my mother), all the tab from the previous session appears normally at first (right title and favicon) but when I go to one of them, it becomes a "New Tab" with a blank page. Note that my New Tab is configured to give me fast links and when I open a real New Tab with the browser in this state, I indeed get my fast links, but I'm unable to load any site (even when typing an URL in the address bar, or using the search bar) though the about:... pages are available. I repeat that there's no error message, just this title "New Tab" and a blank page, whatever I do.

This is _not_ a connection problem, I don't even use a proxy and other browsers work fine (I'm typing this in an old Chrome) as well as online games.

I tried restarting in Safe mode but that doesn't change anything (same symptoms), the only solution I found was to restart the computer... (really annoying)

In case you are using "Clear history when Firefox closes":

  • do not clear the "Browsing History"

Thank you but I do not clear the history. This problem is not systematic, I often open Aurora and get my last session without problem.

Besides I don't think the problem is with the session data since I can't open any new site either. Basically, it seems the problem could manifest itself even if I didn't restart with the tabs from the last session.

Create a new profile as a test to check if your current profile is causing the problems.

See "Creating a profile":

If the new profile works then you can transfer some files from an existing profile to the new profile, but be careful not to copy corrupted files.

Still have the problem with a new profile! Do you have any idea about what is going wrong or other tips to try?

Yes I working again, I made a clean reinstall (removing the installation directory before reinstalling Aurora). And start / stop aurora without any problems.
