Go to last opened tab on start

Bug Description

I checked the settings "Restore tabs", "Restore bookmarks" and "Restore per-file settings" and the tabs are restored and also the page that was opened when closing the application.
Two improvements that would be helpful:

 - When multiple tabs were opened, not the last opened tab will be selected. It's always the same tab that is opened after restarting the application. It would be great it also would be taken into account which tab was opened before closing.

- Currently only the page is remembered, not the exact position. I use dictionaries for example and in SumatraPDF the exact position is remebered when re-opening the application.

(tested with newest version

Respone by Adam Reichold:
"both features you mention are not yet implemented, please file a Whishlist bug concerning these issues. (A question will be removed by an automatic mechanism called the Launchpad janitor after some time without activity and I am not sure when someone will find the time to implement this.)"

Hello again,

the latest trunk should now contain the functionality to restore the tab order and the current tab. I am not sure if I am overly keen on saving/restoring the exact viewport position as this tends to break in various interesting ways due to resizing of the UI and could become a source of further issues.

Best regards, Adam.
