disable startup page

Posted

hello

In startup preferences i set "show tabs from previous session". when firefox starts up, it displays previous pinned tabs but also a new tab (active one) showing the google homepage. is it possible to make firefox startup showing only the pinned tabs, without a new home page tab? version - 20.0 - beta channel scenario: i have a script which opens multiple profiles of firefox (e.g. 1 for mail, 1 for development, 1 for reading). each have their own pinned tabs. when startup each profile, all pinned tabs are loaded but the active tab is a new home page tab (or blank tab).

Chosen solution

There will always be at least one normal (non-pinned) tab.

Does this still happen if you close ll other tab and open one about:blank tab and switch to a pinned tab before closing Firefox?

thanks for the suggestion. It worked. The key to resolve this problem is the "pinned tab". I opened new new tab, right click on it and select "pin tab", closed all other tab and Firefox. Now I have blank page each time.
