Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox-3.0

Ubuntu 8.04.1

Closed down firefox with 2 tabs open by hitting the X and selecting save
& quit.

Clicked on a URL in an application (happened to be mobloquer).

URL loads, old tabs are never restored.
Reloading firefox does not load tabs either...tabs aren't even shown in the history.

Torbutton does NOTHING to non-tor pages, which the saved tabs were.
Tabs are saved and load just fine under ideal circumstances (i.e. close, save, reload - nothing fancy).

<venting>Tabs aren't freakin' rocket science, why are there so many
problems?! This is probably the 3rd bug I have found with tabs. And none
of them get any attention at all. It almost makes me sad that I can't
get IE on here to have something that actually works.</venting>

Off topic: Why does launchpad store login info in cookies? I have never
had to enter my password for this site since I created my account months
ago. Kinda weird to have that lax of security on a Linux oriented
