The same tabs open each time I open a browser window, although I close them each time.

Posted

Each time I open firefox, the same 4 tabs open although I have closed them many times. This has been going on for 4 days. I've tried changing websites and then closing the tabs, but same problem and the same 4 tabs. Any ideas ? Please and Thank you ?!

Is this just when you start Firefox?

Type about:config<enter> in the address bar. If a warning screen comes up, press the I Accept the Risk button. At the top of the screen is a search bar. Type browser.startup.homepage

What is the value? Right-click and select Reset to restore its default value; about:home
