I noticed this problem on two Linux computers. One is running Gentoo Linux and another is running Mandriva Linux 2007. In both cases I have Firefox 22.214.171.124 installed. Reproducable: always Steps to reproduce: 1. Have Firefox open with a couple of tabs open 2. Logout of KDE desktop or restart the computer (leave Firefox open) 3. When you come back and log into your desktop Firefox is automatically started by X session management 4. Firefox asks you if you would like to restore session 5. Click Yes Actual result: Firefox doesn't start at all and no window with remebered tabs is open. Expected result: Firefox should restore the last bowser session and open the tabs. Workaround: I had to delete sessionstore.js in my ~/.mozilla/firefox profile folder in order to get Firefox starting again.
Ups, I made a mistake. Steps 4 and 5 don't happen at all. Firefox just doesn't start. And if you try to start Firefox and have multiple profiles set up it does ask you to select a profile, but if you select a profile which should restore session nothing happens until you delete sessionstore.js for that profile.
Jure: Please reopen this bug when you see this issue again, the answer to both questions from comment #2 is "yes" and you can give the information requested in the third paragraph of comment #2.
