Do I have to open all the tabs every time I open my computer?

My opened windows were saved before so I didn't have to open all of them every time I use the computer, but they are always gone now when I start every day, so I have to go to the History and start looking for whatever I was working on the previous day. Since I normally have more than one window opened , it is really a pain. Why was the save and quit taken out of Firefox 4? It is really needed!

Chosen solution

Firefox now always stores the old session which you can access by going to the History menu and selecting "Restore Previous Session". There is also an option to restore the previous session on the default about:home home page.


If you always open the last set of tabs, an alternative approach is this:

  1. Click the orange Firefox button, then select options to open the options window
  2. Go to the General panel
  3. Change the setting "When Firefox starts" to "Show my windows and tabs from last time"
