Firefox doesn't fully reload tabs after restart

Posted

Hi there,

When I reopen Firefox after saving my existing tabs, they don't fully refresh.

For example, new posts in forums won't be displayed until I manually refresh that page.

Is there a way to prevent this from happening?

Thanks!

You may try to uncheck "Don't load tabs until selected" in Options-->General-->Startup (first tab,under "When Firefox starts").

You need to clear the browsing cache when you close Firefox to prevent Firefox from loading pages from the cache on the next start.
