User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; WOW64; rv:38.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/38.0
Build ID: 20150513174244

Steps to reproduce:

Used firefox after an update. Opened firefox, did not see last session restored. Tried repeated to load tabs and shut down. Last session doesn't appear in any circumstance.


Actual results:

Last session unreachable


Expected results:

Last session to be shown at startup 
AND
Last restore enabled in history
AND
Last session restore to be enabled on homepage
At least "Last session restore to be enabled on homepage" works for me with all past alpha versions.

"Ant.sandnet", do you can still reproduce this bug?

Please go to about:preferences#general .
Do you have behind "When Mozilla Firefox starts:" the option "Show my windows and tabs from last time" selected from the drop-down-menu?
If no, please select it and try again.
If yes, please select a other option from the drop-down, go to a other page in the option (e.g. select "Privacy"), go back to "General" and reselect "Show my windows and tabs from last time" from the list. Now please try to reproduce it again. Does it work now?
If you still have problems, please tell me your version of FF and the OS you use.
