Firefox always restoring my presious sessions after close

Posted

When I close out of Firefox 17 it always restores my previous session when I open the browser back up, no matter how many tabs I had open before I close. It does not take me to my homepage setting, just reloads the previous session before close. All the time. How do I fix this issue?

Hi Lubow

Which Operating System are you running?

If you are on a Mac then you can try the Firefox 21 version that will be released this Tuesday (May 14) to see if that fixes the problem.
