Surely, the software shouldn't have to be desktop aware?  At least,
not in the context we're talking about here.  I'm far from expert in
such matters, but if the DE offers "restore previous session"(1) then
I'd have thought that it's the DE that should be doing the work, not (in
this example) the browser.

(1)  I don't use the option in KDE/Plasma myself.  I always prefer to
start on a (excuse the term) 'virgin' desktop.
