I'm using F25 and I set Firefox to restore my browsing tabs when opening but every time I restart my computer and restart firefox I get the following and annoying message: Well, this is embarrassing.

Firefox is having trouble recovering your windows and tabs. This is usually caused by a recently opened web page.

You can try:

    Removing one or more tabs that you think may be causing the problem
    Starting an entirely new browsing session

I restart the computer using gnome menu.. as usual and before doing that i never close Firefox (of course). Many thanks for suggestions

Are you using Wayland? Maybe Firefox doesn't get shut down properly in that case. Does it have the same problem when you logout instead of restarting?

You could file a bug at
