Firefox forgets my tabs when reloading up

Posted

Hi, I am not sure what happened, I have been using FF for a long time with no problems. Everytime I load up firefox, it has erased my tabs and I have no history. Upon uninstalling it and reinstalling for some reason the "history" comes back, but after the next shutdown and restart, it's all gone again. I am unsure as to why. Also when I log into my FF account, my computer I use while working doesn't sync to this one either. I am confused more by the tabs not reopening and history disappearing than the sync. Under options I already have it ticked to remember my tabs. All Plugins are uninstalled now and still doesn't fix it Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Hi ElectrO,

First, disconnect from Sync.

Go to Menu -> Options -> Privacy & Security scroll down to the History section click the menu next to Firefox will... in the menu select Use Custom Settings For History

Be sure that

  • Always use private browsing mode
  • Clear history when Firefox closes

are not checked.

Set the Firefox Will... option to Remember History

Go to the General page and check that

  • Restore previous session

is selected.

Restart Firefox.

Use Firefox normally for awhile, closing and re-opening. Be sure that everything is working properly before re-connecting to Sync.

Thank you very much. It fixed my problem. It was an option with History being deleted. I hope the sync issues will work as well. Thanks again!
