Firefox thinks I have a tab open that I don't

Firefox recently crashed, and upon reopening it I found that the tabs I had open in my last session were gone and I couldn't do the "restore previous session" button. So I started trying to get to the tabs I remembered by entering them in the address bar, only to find that it thought they were still open and wanted me to press the "switch to tab" button. For example, I had a page on fanfiction.net open before it crashed, and when I tried to get back to that page afterwards, it did the "switch to tab" thing even though it obviously wasn't open. I can still get to the page, but it's very annoying.
Is there a way to fix this, either so I can use this to my advantage to get my tabs back (maybe Firefox has a page where you can see your "open" tabs or what it thinks are your open tabs?) or so I can turn this off? Thanks.

Hi -
Without trying to not sound too objective, please use Internet Explorer and see if there are any faults there -

If I.E. opens without problems, I would try and transfer your Bookmarks to I.E. and reinstalling Firefox with the latest version -

Good Luck -
