    Firefox doesn't restore tabs


    Hi everyone !
    As I've updated Firefox to version 3.0.5, this problem has appeared:
    When I close Firefox it asks whether it should save open tabs state. I answer "YES", but when I restart Firefox I see only a blank page.
    ...
    Deleting .mozilla folder in my home directory didn't change this behavior.
    [ openSUSE 10.3 ]

    ...if the reinstall doesn't work, you can try this:

    close firefox
    rename the ~/.mozilla folder to something like .mozillaOLD
    restart firefox to allow the config folders to rebuild themselves
    start firefox and try the thing with tabs again


    If this works, you can reclaim your old bookmarks file from the OLD folder before deleting it. You'll need to reinstall any extensions.



    Edit: oops, just saw where you said deleting the .mozilla folder didn't help. Do make sure that firefox is closed when you delete or rename that folder.

    You're not running out of disk space are you? As I've seen this happen when disk space gets very low. Are your bookmarks still there across sessions?
