I am not clear. Did you search in the History tab[1] in Firefox for Android?

Making the report a little bit clear so that everyone can understand it,

Steps to reproduce:

1. surf in a tab around a lot of pages without close it.(I don't know how many is needed)
2. do something else until firefox process cleared from memory (or kill firefox manually.)
3. start firefox again.


Actual results:

Firefox starts with some random tabs that are in my history, but not the tabs that were opened while I closed firefox last time.


Expected results:

Firefox should start with the tabs and windows that were opened last time, not with random tabs from my history.

This sound a bit like bug 1044556, except that one only happens when you're using multiple tabs.
I think it is safe to dupe this.
