When I delete a tab, next time I open Firefox it is back! I deleted it from Bookmards - How do I get rid of it permanently?

Posted

I have two tabs that I want to delete. I went to Show All Bookmarks, selected them on the list, held down the command key, clicked on Organize and deleted them. I exited Firefox. When I opened it again, the tabs that I had deleted in my Bookmarks were still there. If I clice the "x" on the tab, it disappears, but is there again when I re-enter Firefox.

How can I permanently get rid of them!!?

It might have gotten added to your "home page" setting -- you can have multiple home page URLs that open in separate tabs. This article has the steps to investigate that possibility or to clear your home page and set it from scratch: How to set the home page. Does that work?
