User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:15.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/15.0.1
Build ID: 20120905151427

Steps to reproduce:

1-Close firefox with a couple of tabs open
2-Open an html file with firefox or click a link on a document (ex. pdf) when firefox is default browser 
3-Firefox will open with one tab only containing the webpage \ html file

Actual results:

The session was lost

Expected results:

When opening a webpage or a link when firefox is the default browser the session restore tab should be opened in addition to the webpage
It depends on the settings you have for browser startup. If you option is to "Show my homepage" or "Show a blank page", only one tab with the html file is opened, but you can still restore your previous sessio from "about:home" page or from browser menu History>Restore Previous Session.
If the startup option is "Show my windows and tabs from last time" the browser should open the html file and the tabs from last time.
Is this the behavior you see?

Thank you!

This is not a bug, it's by design. Khalid, when the webpage opens at step 3, go to the History menu. You will find the Restore Previous Session option there - you can restore your previous session by selecting this.

Works on the 10/15 Nightly.
