firefox RC won't save tabs.

After I installed firefox 4 RC, it won't ask me if I want to save my tabs when I exit. I made sure I enabled save tabs and stuff in the options and I followed these instuction: https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb...ws%20on%20exit
.But it still doesn't work.

In the address/url bar enter: about:config
In the filter box enter: quit
set browser.showQuitWarning to 'true'

check and make sure in Options->General tab 'when Firefox starts' is NOT set to 'show my windows and tabs from last time' - I use 'Show my home page'

When you close you should a dialog box that says something like: you are about to close x number of tabs. Don't fear, they will be saved. When you re-start Firefox the homepage will appear and there is a box that says' restore last session'. Click and there ya go.
