Thanks. In the mean time, I found a workaround that actually worked:
change the setting "browser.startup.homepage_override.mstone" to a
version one lower.

Which I managed to automate. In my little script that starts Firefox I
added this:

# Hack to get back "restore session" effect"

if [ -s "$pref" ]
    cp "$pref" "/tmp/prefs.js.$(date)"
    cp "$pref" "$pref".bak
    sed <"$pref".bak >"$pref" \
        -e '/"browser.startup.homepage_override.mstone"/s/24/23/' \
        -e '/"browser.startup.homepage_override.mstone"/s/25/24/'

exec /usr/pkg/bin/firefox "$@"

which shows that Firefox is perfectly *able* to restore the session, it
just (for whatever reason) doesn't *want* to.
