Actual Results:  
Cannot access web

Do you have to delete the whole ~/.mozilla folder - or is deleting a single file enough (such as cookies.sqlite or sessionstore.js)? Since you don't seem to have Firefox saving your tabs on exit, this doesn't look like a SessionStore bug.

BTW: You're using an outdated Beta version of Firefox. Please update to the latest consumer release (3.0.3), Beta (3.1 Beta 1) or nightly build before filing bugs.

All the ~/.mozilla folder needs to be deleted
I'm using the latest Ubuntu version, but this issue seems to be common to all versions of firefox as the problem occurs with a 'system install' of firefox, or the latest downloaded version.
Sorry about posting the bug in the wrong section.
This is a mass search for bugs which are in the Firefox General component, are
UNCO, have not been changed for 500 days and have an unspecified version. 

Reporter, can you please update to Firefox 3.6.10 or later, create a fresh profile, http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/managing+profiles, and test again. If you still see the issue, please update this bug. If the issue is gone, please set the status to RESOLVED > WORKSFORME.

No reply from reporter, INCOMPLETE. Please retest with Firefox 3.6.12 or later and a new profile (http://support.mozilla.com/kb/Managing+profiles). If you continue to see this issue with the newest firefox and a new profile, then please comment on this bug.
