Firefox session defect Mar2013.PNG

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:19.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/19.0
Build ID: 20130215130331

Steps to reproduce:

I almost always use FFox in mode where "when firefox starts" is set to "home page." Recently changed to restore tabs from last session, can't remember why, but that same day set startup option BACK to home page.

Actual results:

Since that time, every few restarts of FFox result in error message like one attached. Don't get me wrong, this isn't a huge deal. But it's a defect and I haven't experienced this weirdness before, in many years of using FFox. Thanks.

Expected results:

Should have loaded home page.

That's a screenshot of the Crash Recovery page, not a normal restart.

To workaround seeing this after a crash you can go to about:config and change the value of:


to 0

Last 3 entries. Baffled as to why there is only one in 2013, as we have seen (I believe) that error page at least 4 times in the past 2 weeks.

Do you still have this problem with the newer Firefox versions?

Thank you Tiziana for following up on this problem. I am now running 23.0.1 and I believe I have NOT seen this problem in several months, so it seems likely to me that it was fixed since release 19.
I much appreciate you and your colleagues' efforts to continue to refine Firefox.

As for comment 5 I'll close this. 
Feel free to reopen it if you have any other problem. Thanks again for reporting!
