Description of problem:  After the upgrade, firefox will no longer save tabs from last time when that is set in preferences.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Currently using version 42.0-2 of firefox after upgrading from 41.0.1-2.

How reproducible: Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Set "Show my windows and tabs from last time" in firefox preferences.
2.Open several tabs with load some links in them
3.Close firefox and open a new instance.

Actual results:
Firefox loads the fedora home page

Expected results:
Expect my firefox to show my tabs from last session.

Additional info:  Seems to have happened with the version the upgrade, because it worked fine in the previous one.
I realize that there was a similar bug files many months ago, but that was a different fedora release and a different firefox version.

Not sure what happened here, but firefox is back to normal and is saving and opening its tabs from last time.  Seems to have fixed itself with no further updates.  The time it seemed broken lasted several days and at least 20 or 30 openings.
Make of it what you will.  Thanks
