Do not Restore Session with Last window Closed

This used to be an inherent issue with Chrome too - fact that the browser assumes the latest browser window is the greatest
Many times we absentmindedly would close the main browser window when there would be a couple other windows lurking around and when we re-open whether after a crash or normal, it assumes that last window opened is EXACTLY what we want ! I have tried numerous addons that promised to alleviate this but none worked.
Today I was trying to close a pinned tab when for some strange reason V decided I wanted it in a new window and crashed the main one (the options are far and separate for me to have fat-fingered it, but I have no doubt it was user error) - I really dont have an issue with the crashes as it re-opens in a breeze AND auto-loads my pinned tabs!
Anyway I lost my entire previous session with numerous tabs and its too cumbersome to go through it in history
Anyway we can have V have a setting where we can say keep window with max tabs as the gold standard while restoring session or make it the default ? The last window opened is the last thing we would want as a restored session !

@rojaviv Sigh _ I just lost everything when I had another window open and hit F12 for Dev Tools Am I the only one sees this as an issue ?

Vivaldi session management is fairly bad, lost sessions sooooo many times but Session Buddy extension does a pretty good job. Auto saves all tabs on all windows. Only problem is that for some reason, sometimes, the last autosave can be even couple days old Usually pretty recently saved sessions though.

@shadess haha that would be funny - when you see something from 2 days back...would be confusing as hell
But then a weird thing happened - and I remember it happening before too - after like an hour, I see another V instance in the background, and it popped right back ! The old session which I wanted!!
I had been wanting to update the forum but forgot to.
I doubt V can do much if session handling is done by the Chromium engine and doesnt expose any APIs for it
And the best part - for me - fortunately it only happens on F12 for Dev Tools (once in 10 times)....gonna remove that key if I can lol
Done - now must just remember the odd shortcut Ctrl+Shift+I which seems to be the Chrome default (at least V lets us change (some of) the darn weird shortcuts)
