I love how firefox will save tabs from a previous session and I've found out how to enable these settings thanks to your useful support site. But I was just wondering if it were possible to not simply restore tabs from a previous session but to save a whole window of tabs for later occaisions other than the next time firefox is used? I would rather not bookmark the whole lot because there's simply too many to keep it organised so i could flick back to the page i wanted. Thanks!

I have looked at an attempted all the suggestions re. this and cannot locate my bookmarks and passwords on the old hard drive. Hard drive is still connected to my computer, though the PC has had a mother brd, CPU and RAM upgrade: Because of the upgrade could not load window, though the Windows file is still available. New HDD with windows installed, New install. of FF 11.0. Following search suggestions I can find the new Profile, but not the one on the old drive. I can access my Mozilla file in Program Files (x86), but find now appdata etc. Yes, I know, it was really stupid not to backup this stuff before the new hardware install, but didn't think the hardware change was going hose my W7 install so badly. Thanks for any help in advance.

It worked fine over the last few days -- maybe 6 times. All of a sudden, today, it just quit. The line in the 'tools' box says "Stop Private Browsing"; but it's in light type and NOT A LINK. Also, my header has moved left into 2 lines, instead of all across the top. So there's no more brown flag in public browsing and PURPLE FLAG IN PRIVATE BROWSING..

Upgraded to Firefox 13 ... it didn't import from previous version ... went to build a new bookmarks toolbar and when I tried to drag a website item to the toolbar (like I used to be able to do easily in previous version) I got a circle with a line through it - which basically said sorry you can't do that. Backgraded to Version 12 and am having the same problem. I have no extensions running. The Bookmark toolbar is checked (to be shown) and there is a blank one up there ... just can't add anything to it. Any suggestions on what I may be missing would be appreciated. I'd hate to give up on Firefox at this late date. Thanks!

How to I restart Firefox without restoring an old session?

Whenever I encounter a suspicious website (like a fake anti-virus site, porn redirect, etc), I will close Firefox 6 by using the Windows Task Manager (CTRL-ALT-DEL then Applications/Close). I do this because suspicious websites often force you to click on something before you can close your browser [Example: Are you sure you want to navigate away from this website? Yes/No]. I do not want to click on anything that may install malware. After this forced termination when I re-open Firefox, it attempts to restore my last session automatically. This of course re-opens the same suspicious website and I have to close Firefox a second time with CTRL-ALT-DEL. After that second forced termination I get the "Well this is embarrassing" page and I can choose to start a new session. My question: Is there any way to stop Firefox from trying to automatically restore an old session when it is forcibly closed or terminated? By the way...In Tools/Options/General/Startup, I am set to "show my home page" on startup.

Bookmarks Toolbar does not show up whenever I first open the browser. There is a space for it but no icons are there. The only thing that works right now for me is to go in to 'View > Toolbars', uncheck the Bookmarks Toolbar, then go back in & re-check it. It's a PITA but it works. When I close the browser & re-open it I have to go through the same routine again. In addition I sometimes lose the functionality of the Menu Toolbar, it is there but does not work. I have tried the Customize, the restore defaults & the deletion of the localstore.rdf solutions. Nothing has worked. Looking forward to a solution.

I understand that since Firefox 4, the number of days Firefox will retain history for is directly related to system hardware. Firefox calculates how much history to retain without impacting system performance.

I have firefox 6, now I want it to retain everything I have ever searched and entered and everything I will ever will.

I don't care if it slows it down, I want everything.

Maybe you know about a user-set preference I can use to accomplish it and override firefox default settings of removing my history :(

Thank you!

I noticed that my search bar was changed to Yahoo instead of Google, and reset it. Also had entered a couple of sho.rt/urls and came upon a redirect to search.yahoo.com.

A few days ago I installed a freeware that loaded a program into my Windows XP startup to change my MSIE home page or search preferences to Yahoo from Live, and IE alerted me and I blocked the change. Then to get rid of the bootup notice that a program has attempted to change things and was blocked, I ran Spybot Search & Destroy and removed the offender from the start sequence.

There are Microsoft and third-party ways to lock-down MSIE, and I am looking for a way to do this in Firefox.4.

Addendum: DOWNLOADED IOBit SMART DEFRAG 2 and it loaded that starter to change MSIE settings, and gave Firefox two new toolbars: IOBit Toolbar 4.4 and Widgi Toolbae Platform 4.4. They will be disabled as soon as I send this. And I will toss IOBit Smart Defrag too. I discovered all of this when I pasted troubleshoot info below.
