Problems that I faced: 1. There is no firefox window opened, but "new staff train - google drive" window name still appear. Please see attachments. ( the "new staff train" was a window that was closed long time ago) 2. Normally, when one minimises a window and clicks the firefox, the minimize window will pop up, but now it won't.

I did try to delete, uninstall and reinstall firefox, but the problem still exists. Please advise what I can do to solve this inconvenience. Currently, I'm using Firefox 89.0

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

The problem finally solved after I uncheck "restore previous session"-> Quit firefox-> Restart my laptop-> reopen firefox (the "new staff train" still there) -> quit firefox -> restart firefox. Finally the tab that mention "fail to restart previous window" came out -> start new (the "new staff train" finally disappear)

Thank you for the help and your time ◡̈ It's a long try and error.
