Like you, I haven't tried it.

Firefox seems much faster and more reliable running on Linux Distros, than it does on Windows.
For example, the session restore feature has never failed in my Linux installs.

Pale Moon suffers from the same session restore issue (on my PC in W7).

I suspect that the Avast Resident scanner is responsible (i.e. it interferes with the loading of the session restore file).
I did try adding "Exceptions" for the session restore files, but it didn't fix the issue.
In any case, "Exceptions" don't work properly in Avast (unlike AVG).

The restore files are not being corrupted (I've tested them).

I now use the session restore feature in Tab Mix Plus, because even if it initially fails, you can just load a past session from the menu.

Pale Moon also suffers the same spell checker issue as Firefox (on my PC in W7).
