Have multiple tabs saved to reopen on FF6.0 start, but once they load it displays the last tab opened. If I try to click on another tab I have open, the url in the address bar changes, but it still shows the last tab opened on the screen.

This happens if I click on any of the tabs I have open.

Therefore Firefox is useless as I can only view one tab at a time and would have to open it again if I want to view it again.

Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox (Tools) > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).


It is also possible that there is a problem with the files sessionstore.js and sessionstore.bak in the Firefox Profile Folder.

Delete the files sessionstore.js [2] and sessionstore.bak in the Firefox Profile Folder.

If you see files sessionstore-##.js with a number in the left part of the name like sessionstore-1.js then delete those as well.
Deleting sessionstore.js will cause App Tabs and Tab Groups and open and closed (undo) tabs to get lost, so you will have to create them again (make a note or bookmark them).

Thanks all. The issue was the "Tile Tab" extension, 4.13. Updated to 4.14 and all is fine
