Restore last closed tab?

Posted

My restore options work fine. However, the previous version of Firefox had an option to restore the last tab closed ONLY. Now it seems all tabs must be restored.

Any advice? :)

hello nikk11, the history button in the new menu should give you an overview of recently closed tabs - you can click on a particular entry to restore that. or the keyboard shortcut ctrl+shift+t should also still work for that purpose...

You can find the list in a separate menu (History > Recently Closed Tabs/Windows) if you use the History menu on the menu bar.

  • Tap the Alt key or press F10 to show the Menu bar.

There is an History button in the "3-bar" Firefox menu button drop-down that shows the Restore Closed Tabs and Restore Closed Windows directly in this list (there are separators) and not in a separate sub menu.

I have this problem also...when I try to restore a recently closed tab, a new tab opens to my Home Page rather than the recently closed tab that I want to reopen. This started happening after upgrading to Firefox 30 from 29.

I inquired here about this previously but I have not seen a solution as yet. Anybody know if I need to change a Firefox setting to get this to work correctly.

Hi lwcharland

You can check if you have a user.js file in the Firefox profile folder that sets the browser.sessionstore.resume_session_once pref to true.

You can use this button to go to the currently used Firefox profile folder:

  • Help > Troubleshooting Information > Profile Directory: Show Folder (Linux: Open Directory; Mac: Show in Finder)

Note that Windows hides some file extensions by default. Among them are .html and .ini and .js and .txt, so you may only see file name without file extension. You can see the real file type (file extension) in the properties of the file via the right-click context menu in Windows Explorer.
