1) I went on firefox (ff) this morning and visited a few web sites 2) I logged off (ff) and quit using the I-net 3) later in the morning I logged back on to the I-net using (ff) and it opened the last web site I was looking at in my previous session instead of the regular "home page" I usually get when I open (ff). 4) it is as if (ff) is making the last web site I visited from a prior session, my new home page each subsequent time I log on to the I-net.

Make sure that Firefox is closed properly to avoid opening a possibly crashed session the next time.

Use "Firefox/File > Exit" (Mac: "Firefox > Quit"; Linux: "File > Quit") to close Firefox if you are currently doing that by clicking the close X on the title bar.
