Anyone else noticing Safari Tabs disappearing?

Been noticing that Safari tabs just disappear for no reason and are nowhere to be found, not in other Safari windows or anything.

I’ll have opened another window in slide-over or something like that, and when I go back multiple tabs, a whole session, is just gone. In all fairness, I have a lot of tabs open a lot of the time. But it’s really frustrating when they just disappear.

Anyone else noticed anything like this?

Check your Settings / Safari options. iOS 13 has an option to automatically close tabs based on your choice of time. Mine are set to close after one day.

Thanks. It’s set to manually

I just ran into this same sort of thing: had opened up a second Safari window (did so inadvertently from within Safari) and i the process of trying to close the inadvertent window, found that i had clased BOTH my Safari windows. And when i had re-opened Safari, instead of seeing all the tabs i’d laid out last night (sure, too many, but …), they were ALL gone.

I did check my Settings / Safari options - not set to expire for a month - so shouldn’t have lost last night.

MacOS offers a “re-open recently closed tabs” feature - but not seeing that in iPad.

I think this is now the second time its happened to me in a few weeks - the first time i wondered if i was just losing it a wee bit, but this time i’m sure i repeated the sequence of that last time - starting with trying to remove an inadvertently opened a second safari slideover window.

Others seeing this? And have a suggestion for tab recovery - other than rummaging thru History and trying to remember what i had open?
