Thread: Firefox 3.0.5 Startup

    Default Firefox 3.0.5 Startup


    openSuse 11.0, Firefox 3.0.5

    If I logout with Firefox still running, next time I log in and restart
    Firefox, it opens all the old tabs and windows from the old session,
    despite being set to always start with a blank page. I have even removed
    the old .mozilla directory and the behaviour is the same. Is this a
    known issue? Is there a fix?

    Hi
    It's a restore feature on by default. If you open a browser window and
    type about:config and search for browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash
    and double click the entry to change from true to false.

    Thanks. I'm in openSuse 11.0, with I think a 3.5 flavour of KDE. I have
    found Control Centre -> Session Manager -> On login with the self same
    choice, but this does not address the issue. The problem is not that
    Firefox starts up when I login [it doesn't until I tell it] it is what
    it does when it starts again.

    Got it! Thanks, that looks like it will do the trick! I've been
    thinking for ages that firefox is awfully short of options.

    OK, I have this set to false, firefox set to show my homepage
    [about:blank] when it starts up, and still it opens up all the old tabss
    after logging out with the firefoc session open ????

    When you have a few tabs open and quit firefox - it gives you the option
    to close or to close and save the session. Are you doing the latter?

    Neither, I don't get the option when I logout with Firefox still
    running - nor if I quit normally.
