    Firefox wouldn't restart on SUSE restart


    Hi, everyone !
    If one re-boots an openSUSE computer with open Firefox, the Firefox restarts when the system restarts. Actually, every application that was open, restarts.
    However, sometimes, Firefox does not restart.
    When I perform ps in bash, I see a few Firefox processes do run, but there is no graphical evidence.
    If I run Firefox explicitly - stll, no graphical evidence.
    If, however, I kill all Firefox processes, it can now be started normally.
    Does someone know a reason for such peculiar behavior ?
    Thanks in advance !

    Version 3.0
    As I wrote, killing the process helps. But maybe there is a way to just fix it ?
