How do I tell FiIrefox to only restore a sesson of more than one tab, and disregard the restore of a single tab session (ie. closing the browser)

I am on the beta channel of Firefox (currently 17.0, by the about window) and I cannot seem to find a way to limit the size of a browsing session that is automatically restored when re-opening the browser. In the past, Firefox would only save sessions of more than one tab when closing the entire application, and ask me about restoring said session when restarted. Now, Firefox seems to treat a session of just a single tab the same, which is a preference I dislike, given that I use a blank start page to great effect.

I am using a number of addons, including Tab Mix Plus, which specifically modifies tab behavior (although I have it configured to use Firefox's default session manager), but the problem persists even with all addons disabled.

I cannot seem to find an option in about:config to change this behavior. Is this a permanent change within Firefox, and if so, is there or will there be an option to specify the number of tabs that constitute a session that will be automatically saved?

I've tried resetting cookies and the cache to no avail. Any help you're able to offer is appreciated!

I also get this distorted page with text on the left side along with no images when going to facebook.com, but once I login and get to the content, the page is fine. With Twitter, no matter what page I go to, it shows up in this format.

The link I was using was to the Old Yahoo Mail site, so the thought was they've closed the link to force users to start using the New Yahoo!

I am not able to add or remove bookmarks. The bookmarks library is empty. I can't restore to any back up bookmarks. I restarted in safe mode. No bookmarks. I reset Firefox. No bookmarks. I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox. No bookmarks. I did a Revo Uninstall and cleared the registry. No bookmarks. I deleted the localstore.rdf. No bookmarks. This is kinda a deal breaker for me. I might have to go to Chrome or IE.

My McAfee SiteAdvisors is activated but doesnt show in the add-on bar. I double checked the situation under « Tool, Add-on, Extensions » and the add-on is enable. Also the « Add-on bar » is activated.The green McAfee SiteAdvisor button dissapeared after firefox update 16.02. I updated to 17 in case it would resolve the problem with no success. McAfee is still working by giving a warning page if I try to go on a suspiscious site. Also in google search result I no longer get the little McAfee evaluation icones.

I have allowed auto updates of FF to version 17 For all of the updates since I thin FF15 Kasp PM has failed to work with FF but works fine with IE (this is of course highly irritating). The Kasp website forum keeps issuing patches that it claims fix the problem but they don't. The add-on manager in FF always reports PM as incompatible and disabled. Has anyone had this problem and worked out a fix. The Kasp forum showed a bit of interest in my posts but now never seems to answer.

I love Firefox, but I have 2 distinctly different needs. I need 2 separate Firefox browsers with very different settings, consistent with very different uses:

1. This use of Firefox will be for visiting many different websites, a wide variety of interests.

2. I need this use of Firefox to be very limited and restricted, consistent with handling personal investments, banking, financial transactions. There will be very few websites, but with extremely secure, private, connections.

FF17 Mouse wheel line scrolling too fast, alt+scroll missing

Upgraded to FF17 from FF16. Noticed that when I scroll w/ my mouse it jumps about 5 or 6 lines, versus 16's 3 or so. Also, the old mouse shortcut of alt+mousescroll to scroll line by line is gone. A google search netted me the Gecko wiki explaining all the new mouse scrolling options under about:config, but it was mostly over my head. One part I did understand is the loss of the old "mousewheel.withnokey.numlines" and "mousewheel.withnokey.sysnumlines" strings.

I figured it out by changing mousewheel.system_scroll_override_on_root_content.enabled to "false", and it is working at the same speed as it did under FF16, but the ability that alt+mousescroll provided is still missing. Having the ability to customize the mouse scroll speed (instead of turning off the system scroll override) is still outside of my grasp as well.
