It can be a privacy problem. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open firefox and several tabs 2. Download a file from somewhere using firefox (let the "downloads" window open) 3. Close firefox main window 4. Open firefox again Actual Results: it reopens with all previously open tabs Expected Results: It should open an empty firefox
What is you Firefox setting for loading at statup ?
Where is this setting ? I can't find it anymore. But when I open a new Firefox from scratch (without a download window already open), it opens a "clean" firefox (without old tabs).
There is the same problem if you let any window created by firefox open (for example page info, when you click on the website > more info).
confirming with FF4.0b12, I used the error console. requesting blocking because this is a privacy leak

Is this only happening on Linux?

(In reply to comment #6) > Is this only happening on Linux? No, I see to be able to reproduce on Windows with Minefield as well as Linux
This is other fallout from the rules we changed for when to restore a not-quite-closed session before quitting (yes, bug 592822). I modified bug 628043 (which was just about the Library window) to be about the broad case - any secondary windows left open be it the library, active download, page info, etc. So duping to that bug. (In reply to comment #6) > Is this only happening on Linux? Should be just windows & linux.
