new window start with allot of tabs

Posted

Hi,

For some time now, whenever I start a new window in Firefox it automatically loads all my bookmarks as new tabs! So instead of getting a new and empty window I get a window with ~25 tabs.

This also happens when I start FireFox in safe mode. When I click “New private window” I get an empty new window.

A new window shows the homepages that you have set, so maybe you accidentally set all these bookmarks as multiple homepages.


You can check that those pages aren't set as multiple homepages.

You can check the homepage setting.

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