On OS X you can quit with no windows open, which gets saved as such. When you resume that session, it's invalid, and your session is in not resumed. So we should just not save it to begin with.

This is currently being worked around in Weave for bug 554924.

Not sure if this same or should be new bug.

Firefox 24b4 on Mac OS X 10.7.5.

I had several windows minimized (not closed) and hit command-Q with no open window. 

If you have one or more windows open, all the minimized windows return on restart. If no open window, none of the minimized windows are present on restart. Additionally, the save or don't save dialog doesn't appear as usual on quit.

Would seem to me more consistent if it asked before forgeting the minimized windows.

If no open and no minimized windows, then it would not have anything to save and need not ask.
