Damn you Firefox! This is the third time... [View all]

I restarted the computer and Firefox lost all my open tabs. The last two times at least it kept my history. But, it lost my passwords. Fortunately, I have them in a safe place so it was a minor aggravation. Several times it loaded with an "Oops" page that asked me if I wanted to reload all those tabs, but not this time.

Don't tell me to use Chrome-- I caught it spying on me and I prefer not to participate in the coming Empire of Google. Android is pissing me off enough as it is.

I use Firefox for DU and a couple of other sites, Opera for secure sites, like the bank, Pale Moon for places I'd rather not be found hanging out, and (amazingly) Edge for downloads and the default browser when clicking email and stuff. It's actually got some interesting things I don't see elsewhere, and is very stable.

Anybody have any idea what the problem is? I'm digging around in their "help" site with little luck so far.
