After configuring session-restore on login, then saving the session, many items are missing after starting a new session.

STEPS TO REPRODUCE
1. Enable "Manually saved session"
2. Set up some apps including Firefox, Konsole, Dolphin

@Nate: is this going to be taken up any time soon? This is one of the biggest roadblocks to adopting plasma wayland for me. For example, its painful to rearrange firefox windows into different desktops after I start it. 

I have gone back to X11 solely because of this.

So something like this will eventually be able to help it? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fRdnRwPBFBk
Comment 11 Francisco Cribari 2022-07-29 11:27:38 UTC
Will this bug get fixed soon? It is the sole reason why I'm not on Wayland. Can someone let us know what time frame can be realistic expected for this to be sorted out? Thank you.

It's listed on https://community.kde.org/Plasma/Wayland_Showstoppers, so it will eventually get fixed/implemented.
