Paul is this session restore or a xul persistence bug?
(In reply to comment #1) > Paul is this session restore or a xul persistence bug? AFAIK we should be restoring that. But changing those attributes wouldn't initiate a save or mark a window dirty, so if those get changed before something else marks a window dirty (opening a new tab, navigating, etc) and before the next save, those changes would get lost. Teodosia - If you quit normally after doing all of these steps, is everything restored as expected?
A normal quit doesn't display the Silverlight content after restarting. I have to shift-reload in order for the content to show.
After normal quit (Save and Quit) everything is as expected.

But that sounds more like a cache issue. We tend to restore from cache if it's available. (In reply to comment #4) > After normal quit (Save and Quit) everything is as expected. With this, I'm inclined to say "oh well". We do pretty well for crash recovery, but I don't expect it to be perfect. We could probably make it such that we always update window position/features when we save instead of only for dirty windows. If I have time or somebody wants to pick it up, I would say we would take it, but I wouldn't block on it.
Summary: Session restore does not preserve user preferences. → session restore does not flush sidebar or menubar state immediately
