The subject says it. Tab Mix plus session restore fails when you shut down system without manually shutting down iceweasel/firefox, but if you shut it down using the X button it saves it as expected.

Note that:

In my case it was a removed tab mix plus extension responsible for this and changing browser.sessionstore.enabled to true in about:config fixed it


in my case is already set to true. Also, this bug report is for overall session restore failures, but it does point a few places.

In case anyone stumbles across this, as I just did, it seems to be a bug with FF3 and Tab Mix Plus which persists even if you uninstall the extension. I fixed it by:
(1) Uninstalling TMP,
(2) Closing firefox,
(3) Editing .mozilla/firefox/[profile-identifier]/prefs.js to delete all lines setting prefs for extensions.tabmix,
(4) Restarting firefox.
Why those prefs should continue having an affect after the extension is uninstalled, I don't know, but it seemed to work. Note that you must close FF before making the edit, or it will overwrite all your changes on close. (I can't see a way to remove entries entirely in about:config.)


No solution yet.

user_pref("extensions.tabmix.focusTab", 4);
user_pref("extensions.tabmix.hideTabBarButton", false);
user_pref("extensions.tabmix.newTabButton", false);

user_pref("extensions.tabmix.progressMeter", false);
