Browser not remembering the previous session or the window size

I just installed Vivaldi 1.10.867.38 on a completely fresh install of Windows 10 Pro. Installed two extensions: Lastpass and Adguard. And then restored my previous profile by replacing the %localappdata%\Vivaldi\User Data\Default folder with the old one. Then this happened: Everytime I close and relaunch the browser, it opens on just one start page tab, and in a much smaller window than what I had open previously, and it looks like the size it opens to is always the same. What?!
I have never experienced this problem before, in multiple installations of Vivaldi. My last profile that I restored to worked just fine. That was also on Win 10 Pro. I suppose I could refresh the browser and start all over again, but then I lose many hours of customization and bookmarks and such.
P.S. I did see a prompt that I hadn't seen in previous times. When I installed Vivaldi and launched it for the first time, I got a Windows Defender Popup asking me to give permission to let it through the firewall. I allowed access on Private Network but not on Public Network. Don't know if that has anything to do with this strange behavior.

You said you installed two extensions and then replaced your default folder. This means the extensions are gone.
How do you startup Vivaldi, what setting have you picked?

@luetage Promise me you won't kill me first. Alright. This is what happened: I had two instanced of Vivaldi open on two different virtual desktops, and I didn't know it. (It was late, I was dragging my butt, and it just didn't occur to me that there were multiple instances of Vivaldi running.)
Anyhow, I was opening and closing one of the two windows, while the other was sitting on a different desktop. And that was the problem. Haha. I feel like an idiot. No, really, I do! Sorry for the false alarm, but I do appreciate your time and interest.
P.S. Some of the description in my original post were out of sequence. I installed Vivaldi, restored my previous profile and then installed the extensions.

I need your name and your address. Prepare for retribution
