In preferences, under general, I have "Show my windows and tabs from last time" selected for "When Nightly starts". If I quit the browser and restart it, then it restores all tabs as expected. However, if the browser crashes, then it restores pinned tabs, as expected, but it does not restore any non-pinned tabs. Instead, it sounds about:home, with the option to click to restore tabs from a previous session. If I click on that button, then it does restore the tabs as expected, so it isn't like the data is being lost. I can reproduce this issue by killing Nightly process in Activity Monitor.
> Instead, it sounds about:home This should be "it load about:home"
Andrew, any chance that you can test if bug 1177310 is the regressor?
(In reply to Bill McCloskey (:billm) from comment #2) > Andrew, any chance that you can test if bug 1177310 is the regressor? I'll try that. Unfortunately I'm having some trouble getting mozregression to work with a profile, but I can try manually downloading builds. I wasn't able to reproduce this issue in a couple of other profiles I tried besides my main profile. I'm not sure what the difference is.
I can reproduce this in my main profile as far back as 11-03, so maybe my profile is just in a messed up state. I noticed that even after I repeatedly kill the process I never get the "Oops, you keep crashing!" message where it shows a list of things to restore from a previous session, which I do see in other profiles.
Andrew, does this still happen for you when using a more current version?
Summary: "Show my windows and tabs from last time" does not work after crash → After crash pinned tabs are restored, but non-pinned tabs are not. See about:home, with the option restore tabs from a previous session.
