If i have to close Firefox after attempting to load a page locks the machine up, what setting can i change where it will not automatically try to reload the page when i restard the browser?

Posted

Say i try to open a pdf link for example (although not limited to) and Firefox stops responding; if i close the browser and open it again, it will attempt to reload the same page that just locked it up. How do i turn this off? I get the "Well, this is embarrassing." error fairly often (after 'end task'-ing twice) :/

This happened

A few times a week

What page crashes Firefox? On the "Well, this is embarrassing." page you could choose to restore all pages except for this "bad" one.

If I knew what page it is, maybe, I could help more.

You can also Help->Report Broken Website...

Besides, you can also update Java.

If the problem is caused by JavaScript, you could install NoScript. To change what pages are opened on each start-up/restart (whether a crash occurred or not), you can go to

Tools->Options->General->Homepage->You can change which page to use on start-up.
