  2. Note, it seems that the Session Restore feature now only works if your Browsing History IS NOT cleared when you quit.

    Specifically go to Tools->Options->Privacy. Click the “Settings” button next to “Clear history when Firefox closes”. Then make sure that “Browsing History” is UNCHECKED.

  3.  it doesn’t help :( after computer restart, browser just opens home page, and it has nothing in “about:sessionrestore”. what should i do?
