This i had today with an VM (Xubuntu 14.04 alpha2; Fx 26.0)

Very strange is, that the VM was shut down and after rebooting i coul not open up FX cause an instance was running...

I close firefox and when I restart I stll show old session's variables.

It prevents the package (or a dependent one) from functioning correctly at all.

We are sorry that we do not always have the capacity to review all reported bugs in a timely manner. You reported this bug some time ago and there have been many changes in Ubuntu and Firefox since that time.

Do you still see a problem related to the one that you reported using currently supported versions of Firefox and Ubuntu? Please let us know if you do otherwise this report can be left to expire in approximately 60 days time.

Thank you for helping make Ubuntu better.
