After the automatic update (Using 106.0.1) clicking Recently Closed Tabs or Recently Closed Windows does nothing
Is this a known issue for the new update? Whenever I try to click Recently Closed Windows in particular, it just does nothing. It has the grey highlighted bar that shows it wants to do something, but then does nothing. About 1 out of 100 times when i click Recently Closed Tabs, it WILL open to show my recently closed tabs, but generally does the same thing as Recently Closed Windows. I know I have recently closed tabs because I restored session and it is currently showing all my old tabs I had open prior to the update. I also tested to see if my recently closed had just reset by opening a new window and closing it, but it still just does nothing. I use the Recently Closed Windows quite a bit and it's quite irritating that it appears to be broken.
Never mind, Firefox was just being super slow for sure. When I set the Max windows in about:config to 0 and then reset to my intended 20, it opened up and I can just use as normal now. Very irritating, howeve,r so I turned off automatic updates so I can't be jumped like this again.Read this answer in context 👍 1

One thing I have noticed as will is if I try to open it from the View History toolbar button (History>Recently Closed Windows), trying to click the back arrow will also just do nothing. However, if I click the back arrow after having just entered the History section of the View History dropdown, it does go back to the main menu. So perhaps my recently closed windows is just making Firefox slow down somehow? It doesn't seem to affect any of my open tabs' performance however.
I know that the new update has the Firefox View option but that is a terrible replacement as it only shows the recently closed items for the current window I have open.
