No matter how many tabs I "open" my bookmarks use the first tab even though I am supposedly connected to a new tab. The address for the 1st tab shows in all new tabs' address bars. I noticed from a previous question that an Ask add was mentioned, but I don't seem to have this add on.

I have a word list in Notepad plus I've copied it into C. I would like to be able to open it in it's own tab so I can switch back and forth when needed and not have it disappear behind the open page. It has no webpage any longer. I copied it originally from a web page which is no longer available.

When I tried to open firefox it automatically updated and supressed the sessionstore.js file. I saved the sessionstore.bak into another folder, closed mozilla, changed the extension bak to js in the "profiles" folder of firefox and opened it again but nothing happened. Though the sessionstore.bak file is 13Ko big and seems to contain all the links of my previous session.

How could I force Firefox to start a session using the information in the sessionstore.bak or .js file as it should?

Whenever I restart firefox, the last tab I had opened does not load. The matter of restarting can be any kind: new add on installed, new firefox update, restarting the browser manually, or restarting my computer so that firefox is automatically closed. It's always the same problem. The last tab will be displayed as my New Tab page, which is blank. I can have 3 tabs open, and the first 2 will load just fine, but the last doesn't. This means that if I restart for an add-on or something, I need to go back into my history to pull up this last tab, which is inconvenient. And it may not have been my most recent tab. I may open this last tab, go back to an earlier tab and surf the web on that, building my history, and then restart firefox for whatever reason. In those instances, I need to open up the history window and dig for that last tab from memory.

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.
