Home Page Start-up restores tabs from not last session also.

Posted

My Home Page startup session is saved in the options preferences. But it isn't returning to my personalized default. It adds tabs from last session. I thought they were supposed to disappear. They have done that for years, but not now. Have you changed it? Should I be closing each unwanted tab before ending a session?

You can check if you have a user.js file in the Firefox profile folder that sets the browser.sessionstore.resume_session_once pref to true.

Question owner

that didn't solve my problem, you gave me an incomplete search term; after browser.sessionstore, the strings of choices are much longer. Can you revisit the complete link so I can choose. Also, I think a long time ago, someone suggested something like that and it only worked for awhile. Is there something that resets the correct "false" to true?
