Description of problem:

Everytime I reboot with firefox running, on login I get:

Well, this is embarrassing.

Firefox is having trouble recovering your windows and tabs. This is usually caused by a recently opened web page.

Running KDE desktop with manually saved session.

[root@orca ~]# ps -fe | grep firefox
orion     2377  2335  0 08:55 ?        00:00:00 /bin/sh /usr/lib/firefox-3.5b4/run-mozilla.sh /usr/lib/firefox-3.5b4/firefox --sm-config-prefix /firefox-O4Kqxb/ --sm-client-id 106f726361000123393768500000029380043 --screen 0
orion     2525  2377  8 08:55 ?        00:00:06 /usr/lib/firefox-3.5b4/firefox --sm-config-prefix /firefox-O4Kqxb/ --sm-client-id 106f726361000123393768500000029380043 --screen 0

Hmm, this might be a KDE issue:

.kde/share/config/ksmserverrc:program11=firefox
.kde/share/config/ksmserverrc:restartCommand11=firefox,--sm-config-prefix,/firefox-Vp9CrZ/,--sm-client-id,106f726361000123299017500000072300016,--screen,0
.kde/share/config/ksmserverrc:program5=firefox
.kde/share/config/ksmserverrc:restartCommand5=firefox,--sm-config-prefix,/firefox-8oV6Z9/,--sm-client-id,106f726361000123393768500000029380043,--screen,0

Why two firefox restart commands?  Probably getting this from firefox session registration though....

I'll try removing one of the firefox restart commands.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
firefox-3.5-0.20.beta4.fc11.i586
kdebase-4.2.3-1.fc11.i586

How reproducible:
Everytime

Comment 2 Orion Poplawski 2009-05-28 15:48:20 UTC
Nope.  I can reproduce this simply by killing firefox and then restarting it.

Comment 3 Bug Zapper 2009-06-09 16:38:26 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.

Yes, I'm seeing this every time on FC 11, too.

Yes, and that's the same as bug I close it duplicate of.

Comment 6 Matěj Cepl 2009-06-17 19:28:49 UTC
No, this is correct. Firefox just doesn't work well with KDE session management, which is the upstream bug we closed duplicate of this bug against.
