Firefox won't remember the tabs from when I closed it out last.
I signed out of my laptop to go and do something else, and when i rebooted it, and clicked on firefox it came up with my homepage, Bing, instead of the five other tabs I had had on it. As a test, I pulled up two different tabs, Facebook and DeviantArt, and I purposefully closed it again, hoping it was only a minor problem. When I clocked back onto it, it was Bing again. I've gone to tools, options, and looked under the start up settings, and it says it will remember tabs from the last session, but it isn't, and when i look under history, it only says Bing, even though I've been using firefox for over a year and i have more history than that. It's a very annoying problem since i just got used to the layout, and i don't like internet explorer, so i would very much appreciate if someone could help with my problem.

Only difference is my homepage is comcast.net
If you use Remove recent browsing, search and download history in Firefox 3.5/6 or Clear Private Data in Firefox 3 to clear the 'Browsing History' when Firefox is closed then restoring tabs from the last session (e.g. "Save & Quit" or "Show my windows and tabs from last time") doesn't work.
Make sure that you not run Firefox in Private Browsing - Browse the web without saving information about the sites you visit mode. In Private Browsing mode some menu items are disabled (grayed) and features like visited links and disabled and not available. You are in Private Browsing mode if you see "Tools > Stop Private Browsing", possibly grayed. ..... You enter Private Browsing mode if you select: Tools > Options > Privacy > History: Firefox will: "Never Remember History" To see all History settings, choose: Tools > Options > Privacy, choose the setting Firefox will: Use custom settings for history Uncheck: [[ ] "Automatically start Firefox in a private browsing session"
