Where is the "Tools" Menu item in FF Beta 4?


I am trying to set my home page and specify which pages open when I start Firefox. I dislike that the pages I had open last time automatically open up. Sometimes I close FF to get rid of unwanted pages and it annoys me that they all open back up when I restart FF.

By default in Firefox 4 the menu bar is hidden, you can temporarily display the menu bar by pressing wither F10 or the Alt key.

You can open the Options window by clicking on the Firefox button and selecting Options.

Set the pref browser.sessionstore.max_resumed_crashes to 0 on the about:config page to get the about:sessionrestore page immediately with the first restart after a crash has occurred or the Task Manager was used to close Firefox.

That will allow you to deselect the tab(s) that you do not want to reopen, but will allow to reopen the other tabs.
