The "Options->Tabs->New Pages should be opened" option is getting resetted after closing and reopening the browser.

If I select that option to open in a "new tab" it gets set to "new window" after opening and closing the browser

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Select Options
2.Select Tabs tab
3.Select "a new tab" for the setting "New pages should be opened in:"
4.Close and reopen the browser 

Actual Results:  
Check the "Options->Tabs->New pages should be opened in:" .It will be set to "a new window" instead of "a new tab"

Expected Results:  
It should be set to "a new tab" instead of "a new window"
