User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.7; rv:18.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/18.0
Build ID: 20130201065344

Steps to reproduce:

I selected the option "restore last session data" in preferences->general->start->when starting firefox.
I didi it to force firefox for remember all opened tabs in case of updating and restarting firefox.


Actual results:

Firefox din't remember opened tabs from last session anyway.
Because chronicle was deactivated for "visited sites".
I used the option to delete chronicle data ("visited sites") on firefox shutdown.


Expected results:

The option "restore last session data" should not be available (greyed or left out), when option for automatic deletion chronicle at firefox shutdown -> "visited sites" is selected in preferences (data protection).
There is a collision of these 2 options. You can only use one at the same time
I can't believe that we have no duplicate report about this issue. Confirming for now but please dupe this report if someone finds an older report.
