Hello!

I can't figure out what setting to fix this: every time I click to open a new window, about 35 tabs automatically open up that I have closed several times in the past. I simply want one new window without any previously opened tabs.

I've tried:

  • clearing my entire search history several times
  • shutting down Firefox and reopening (which opens up all those tabs)
  • uninstalling Firefox and reinstalling it
  • initiating the latest Firefox updates
  • restarting my computer
  • turning my computer on and off
  • looking through every single preference in my Firefox settings (I've unchecked anywhere it talks about opening tabs)
  • reading various articles on Firefox's support page and on other support websites to try to figure this out (there's little info on this problem; the support is mostly about how to save previously opened tabs

Please help! I'm tired of having to close down all these tabs every single time I have to restart my computer or have to shut down Firefox. It slows down everything I'm trying to do.

Thank you!

A new window opens with the homepage(s), so you can check if those tabs aren't set as multiple homepages.

You can check the homepage setting in "Settings -> Home".

Firefox supports multiple homepages separated by '|' (pipe) symbols.

Does it still happen in Troubleshoot Mode?
