    Default Firefox; add delay after starting KDE?

    Hi guys, I usually switch off the PC, leaving my apps open, so they are there when I start up. This works fine except that FF has trouble, resulting in a "well this is embarrassing" notice. A simple 'restore tabs' fixes it. IMHO this is because FF starts too soon, before KDE is fully up and running. This happened in 11.4 and does now in 12.2 as well. Is there a way to make FF wait, or delay by a second or two before it starts up?

    I just set KDE to start with new session and use a script in systemsettings - startup and shutdown - autostart
    Put "sleep 5 &&firefox" in it, will start "firefox" in 5sec.

    No, it happens because you did not close FF, but instead closed the computer. FF thinks it was
    not closed properly.
