Public bug reported:

After upgrading to firefox amd64 74.0.1+build1-0ubuntu0.18.04.1 (using
apt-get), a message appeared in the running Firefox session: 'Firefox
needs to be restarted' (as usual, nothing wrong with that). After
clicking ok (or 'do it now' or what the exact message was), Firefox

Expected behaviour: Firefox actually restarts

Experienced behaviour: Nothing seemed to happen. Firefox terminated but
never came back. (Starting Firefox again by hand worked flawlessly.)

I have no profiles defined. I don't usually pass any options when
starting Firefox.
