I have about 15 Firefox windows open right now. One of them probably has close to 50 tabs going on it. That one Firefox Window will no longer open for me.

I have tried shutting off my computer different ways without shutting down Firefox so hoping that when I restart the computer Firefox will give me the option of restoring past Windows and Tabs. I just planned to un-check a bunch of the Tabs in the Firefox window that had too many Tabs running.

Problem is, I cannot get that restore Window to appear. All that happens is that all the past open Firefox Windows just automatically start up without giving me the one restore Window. Is there any way around this? Thanks.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Firefox 18.0.1

Under Tools>Options>General I have the browser set when I open the browser to "open up a blank page" but it keeps opening up previous tabs from the day before. How can I stop this? I read the forum boards but either did not find it or overlooked the answer. I checked all my other settings and cannot find anything that would be causing this. Please advise?

I sometimes will open several windows, especially from my Comcast mailbox. When I am through with that window, I will close it, but leave the other ones open. FIrefox won't do this any more, When I close 1 window, Firefox send me a message stating that it is CLOSING ALL TABS. I DONT WANT TO CLOSE all of them, I just want to close the window I am closing!. This is very annoying, because I have to re-log back into everything, because FIrefox is "CLOSING ALL TABS", and all I want to to close ONE window...I am about ready to chuck this browser....I tried to find an answer to this in tools, but was unable to do so. Please help me with this

I don't want my tabs to automatically re-load when I re-start Firefox. I want to see the tab headings, but I don't want them taking up memory until I actually select a specific tab. I check the "don't load tabs until selected" box in Options-Tabs, but when I re-start Firefox, the box becomes unchecked, and all my tabs start loading again. Why doesn't the "don't load tabs until selected" box stay checked? I'm also using Session Manager and Tab Mix Plus.

When I used to hit "Tab" it opened with a page full of my favorite "thumbnails". Somehow I have managed to delete those, which is fine--as long as I can restart building those thumbnails. The site that pulls up every time I hit "Tab" is http://www.searchnu.com/406?tag=newtab. I don't particularly like that search "engine?"--and would at least prefer to have Google pull up as a default (even if I can't have thumbnails). I have read thru your various "help" suggestions, but can't seem to improve this situation. I realize I hit something yesterday that removed "cache" ????---and that is the probable cause of my present situation. Can you help me restore my thumbnails---and/or make the "Tab+" at least default to Google? Thanks for your help- shnolan

I recently wanted to get the Accuweather.com toolbar on my computer, so I could always know the weather and what not. After doing this, It changed my homepage to an accuweather search engine, powered by bing.com, which I can't stand. So, I went into the tools, in the options, clicked on general, and changed my homepage back to google.com. When I open a new page, it takes me to google, but, whenever i hit the tab button, it goes to the accuweather search engine. How can I change the tab settings to either go to google.com or have the general tab window with the list of sites I visit most often?
