I’m having troulbe restoring my Firefox session after restarting the computer. I usually shut off my laptop leaving my apps open so that they start automatically when I start opensuse again. Unfortunately, Firefox starts BEFORE the network manager has successfully connected to the internet, which makes firefox show the “server not found” page. In addition, once the network manager has connected to the internet, firefox will not load the pages, when hitting reload. It seems as if it would be in “offline mode”.
I know this has been an issue in some distros (for instance I had the same issue in Leap 42.3), but in other distros, like 13.1, Firefox would wait a while before starting, so that the network manager has enough time to connect before opening all the windows.
My question would be: is there a way to manually delay the automatic startup of firefox, when initaing session in opensuse, so that the network manager has enough time to connect?
I have tried to delay the startup from firefox following the suggestion of “finders” in this old post
but it doesn’t work for me. The firefox windows open right when I login
BTW, a smilar thing happens to the software updates app: it tries to look for updates much too soon and it gives an error “checking updates failed” because it can’t connect to the repos. This behavior doesn’t bother me that much, but it may be related to the issue with firefox.
