I either misunderstand this, or it's just normal Firefox for Android behaviour we inherited. On the history part of the new tab page, one can reopen all tabs from the last session.

I figure we should probably leave this behaviour as-is unless lots of users are unhappy with this.

Mozilla changed the default behaviour to always restore tabs starting from Firefox 48 (more info here). So in the next release (1.3.0), we'll have this behaviour by default.
