User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.5; en-GB; rv:1.9b5) Gecko/2008032619 Firefox/3.0b5 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.5; en-GB; rv:1.9b5) Gecko/2008032619 Firefox/3.0b5 After Firefox stopped responding, I Force Quitted it, then reopened it. Before I had clicked 'Restore Previous Session' button in the Session Restore dialog, I had clicked on a URL in another application. Firefox opened the URL in the background, and then when I clicked on 'Restore Previous Session' only a blank window was opened, rather than the tabs I had opened before. Something about opening a new URL between crashing and restoring must be clobbering the session information. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open some tabs in Firefox 2. Force quit Firefox so that when reopened, the Session Restore dialog appears 3. Click on a URL in another application such that it is opened in Firefox (obviously Firefox must be set as the default browser) 4. Click 'Restore Previous Session' Actual Results: Only a blank page is opened, aside from the URL clicked on. Expected Results: The previous session should be restored still - perhaps the URL open should not be processed until a button is clicked on in the Session Restore dialog. I have not yet tested this on Windows, but would not be surprised if the same happened.
