Can you make Firefox open just with pinned tabs?

Posted

I have 9 pinned tabs in Firefox, including my Home page, BBC News. If I close Firefox with only pinned tabs open, next restart it will open a new Home tab (unpinned) automatically which I don't want. I want it to open exactly as I closed it with the same pinned tab on top. Is this possible?

No. Firefox will always open one normal tab if you close Firefox with only pinned tabs open.

Thanks, that's annoying. I guess it is technically possible, but would need enough requests to justify it.

Thanks, but I've been using pinned tabs happily for years. It's the automatic non-pinned Home tab that opens when Firefox was last closed with only pinned tabs open that is annoying. My Home tab is a pinned tab too, so it would make more sense for it switch to the pinned one rather than opening another the same.

I'll try the Home tab as Firefox Home as that will occasionally be useful.
