Description

4 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:36.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/36.0
Build ID: 20150305021524

Steps to reproduce:

I restarted my browser with plenty of open tabs.
Version 36.0.1



Actual results:

In browser.startup.page I entered usually the value 3 (by the options panel) to get all the tabs opened again. This never works anymore.
The option to display the last opened tabs still is shown in the options panel but grayed out / disabled. In about:config the value 3 is still present but without any impact.


Expected results:

1) The before opened tabs tabs should have been opened again at browser-startup.
2) The option to open before opened tabs again never should be grayed out / disabled.

Did you try to reset the value in about:config?

I switched to another value and then back to 3 (by about:config)
I restarted the whole PC too - no change.

If you start FF in safe mode, does FF restore your tabs open?

No, it doesn't change that the last opened tabs are ignored.
