Description

6 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:19.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/19.0
Build ID: 20130219185710

Steps to reproduce:

I shutdown my computer through the Gnome menu, without quitting Firefox.


Actual results:

The next time started Firefox, it remembered only one window and it's tabs. The rest of the windows were forgotten and I lost all my tabs in those windows.


Expected results:

Firefox should have remembered all my windows and tabs like normal. I use the "Show my windows and tbas from last time", which normally works, except in this case where I shutdown without quitting Firefox.

Can you still reproduce this problem using a current version of Firefox?

@WayneMery I'm in Limbo right now with OSes. I'm on a temporary laptop with Windows on it. When I get my new laptop and back on Linux I'll try to remember to test this.
Thanks for the reply.
When you are ready just update the bug report.
Let's call this incomplete until there is new info.
