Description

2 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:43.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/43.0
Build ID: 20160106234723

Steps to reproduce:

1. Create a new profile and launch the new profile
2. Change the following two settings:
    a) Preferences > General > When Firefox starts: Show my windows and tabs from last time
    b) Preferences > Privacy > History > Firefox will: Use custom history settings for history, toggle Accept cookies from site to inactivate cookies. In addition to this, you could remove any cookies that might exist.
3. Visit for example https://www.youtube.com
4. Open quickly between 10 to 20 videos from the start page into new tab
5. Close the browser, no need to wait for all the tabs to finish loading.
6. Relaunching the browser CAN result in three outcomes:
    i) Empty New tabs are added to the restored session
    ii) Old tabs are replaced with empty New tabs
    iii) Everything is as it should be


Actual results:

Tabs from previous session are replaced and/or empty new tabs are added to the old session.

I have checked the sessionstore.js in the newly created profiles in-between the sessions. I have correlated 6-i outcome (described in the reproduction procedure) with many of the following entries in the sessionstore.js file:

{"entries":[], "lastAccessed": a_13_digit_number, "index":1}
{"entries":[], "lastAccessed": a_13_digit_number, "index":null}

I have not checked any testing branch.


Expected results:

The tabs from the previous session should have been "frozen", and resumed once I click on them again.

I cannot recreate this error when the cookies are enabled.
