(When) will Firefox stop reopening explicitly closed tabs?
A year ago user cardinal4 opened a support ticket called "Old tab still reopen after closing all tabs". https://support.mozilla.org/nl/questions/1180366
I experience the same issue. I find it rather privacy-unfriendly for browsers to just pop open tabs you thought you had closed. It thus surprised me that this hasn't been resolved in over a year.
Are there any plans to fix this? Will my browser ever stop telling my friends and family what page I was browsing last, every time I only wanted to show them a cat video?
Additional System Details
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:60.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/60.0
Could you test it on the latest version of Firefox?
