Description

3 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:41.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/41.0
Build ID: 20150715215100

Steps to reproduce:

firefox restarted after a crash without the normal 'oops, restore tabs' display.

I copied sessionstore-recovery/recovery.bak to recovery.del (for archive) and then to sessionstore.js




Actual results:

the right number of tabs/windows were opened, but with no contents. If I go to a new website and then hit the back button (or if the back button had been hit before, go forward and then back) it loads the 'lost' tab URL


Expected results:

the tabs should have loaded with the URLs that they were last used at.

I do use the "unload tab" extension, but I've been through many crash/exit/restart/upgrades with that installed and it has not caused this problem prior to no (across several firefox versions)
