I also noticed the same problem several times in the past when Firefox applied an upgrade.

Persisting tabs from last time also fails for Firefox 3.6.6 for Mac OS X.

User agent
Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.6; en-US; rv:1.9.2.6)
Gecko/20100625 Firefox/3.6.6

Reproducing
1. Set Firefox - Preferences - General - Startup - When Firefox starts = "Show
my windows and tabs from last time".
2. Open several tabs in Firefox window (e.g. http://www.mozilla.org/,
http://www.google.com/, http://www.w3.org/).
3. Choose the command Firefox - Quit Firefox.
4. Launch Firefox again.
Expected result: Firefox should open and show the tabs from the last session
(http://www.mozilla.org/, http://www.google.com/, http://www.w3.org/ for my
case).
Actual result: Firefox opens and shows the only tab with the home page
(http://en-US.start3.mozilla.com/firefox?client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official
in my case).

Please, fix this bug.

If anyone can still reproduce and doesn't have "clear history when firefox closes" selected on the privacy pane, please check the sessionstore.js file in your profile after you shut down Firefox. Does it list the tabs you had open?
