Restore previous session problem

Hi!

I've enabled "Restore previous session", but i want it to continue on a new tab next time if I close Firefox by closing all of the tabs individually instead of closing the browser window itself.

So if I close all the tabs individually, it should next time I startup Firefox open a single NEW tab while still remembering my previous tabs if I close Firefox by closing the window itself. Just like it works on chrome with "Continue where I left off" enabled.

Any help appreciated!

Thanks!

Patrick

Hi Patrick, I can't think of a built-in setting for that exact behavior. The closest thing that comes to mind is the setting to generate a new tab when you close the last tab in the window. This forces you to close a window using the X button, but when it's restored, you should just get the new tab:

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button accepting the risk.

(2) In the search box above the list, type or paste LASTTAB and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click the browser.tabs.closeWindowWithLastTab preference to switch the value from false to true true to false

Note that there is possibly "History -> Recently Closed Tabs/Windows" available to reopen tabs you closed previously.
