I searched this forum but couldn't find an answer. I have "restore last session" turned on, but I'd like Firefox wouldn't reopen my last visited site after I close the browser by closing the last tab. In other words: if I close the browser by a regular means (by clicking the rightmost upper X, or by right-clicking the taskbar and choosing close window) it goes to the last viewed site when I reopen the browser – and that's ok – but when I close the last tab and the browser closes, I don't want to see this site again when I reopen Firefox. Is there a way to achieve this? By the way, this is the standard behavior in Google Chrome.

IMPORTANT NOTE: I already have the Check mark clicked in Settings to "open links in tabs instead of new windows" so please don't suggest that.

I tend to have a lot of tabs open (more than 100) in Firefox. Until it recently updated, no matter how many tabs I had open, if I opened a new tab, it would do so in the same window. Now, after the update, I have about 60 tabs open and anytime I open a new tab from my current window, it will after a few seconds switch to opening a new window, which is very annoying.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix it?

Thank you very much for your help!

I have just updated to Firefox 17; I have used it back from version 3, and I feel it's time to say goodbye to Mozilla Firefox!

I have used a lot of other programs, and I don't think there is any other program that updates as frequently as Firefox - every couple of months there is a new version!

It's not bad thing itself, but very, very bad thing is that, each time I update Firefox, one third of my plugins and addons are not compatible with new version! That completely ruins my joy of surfing the internet; since updating from Firefox 14 to current Firefox 17, I have lost at least five addons that were very important for me; the last one, now, is Tab Mix Plus, it's not compatible with Firefox 17, and my Firefox now looks completely different from what I'm used to, I cannot use it!

This has become unbearable any longer: I cannot cope with constant updates of program and addons, and finding replacements for addons that became incompatible! I want to browse internet, and not always to maintain something within Firefox!

You offered me some half of dozen years of excellent experience of browsing the web, but you've become too user enemy for my liking; , so bye, bye, Firefox!

I installed ShopAtHome toolbar, now Yahoo has hijacked my new tab. How do I fix this to the last visited tabs?

Multiple forums have addressed the fact that Yahoo is hijacking new tabs. I installed the ShopAtHome toolbar - which I love - but then I get Yahoo installed (mysteriously and uninvited).

I would like the new tab to reset to its default of: either the panels of previous sites, or the blank page. The prior issues relating to netassistant do not work.

Any help would be appreciated.

I downloaded the update for Firefox 17.0 and installed it with no problems. After completion, I discovered that I could not open additional tabs as with previous versions of Firefox. I tried various methods, including the File pulldown menu, clicking on the tab stop next to an already open website, and using Ctrl+T. Nothing worked. I can open additional windows, but find it much more convenient to use tab stops, and am currently unable to do so using the latest version of Firefox.

when addons are updated, FF restarts and the websites of the updated addons open in tabs to let u know those addons were updated and to be able to check their website fa further info (changelog, etc)...

however firefox is now opening addon sites (first only from download helper and now including tab mix plus), even tho those addons werent updated...

i have a screenshot i can send if its possible...

this only happens when firefox first opens, as long as its open, any other instances of firefox open correctly with just a blank tab and no other website tabs...

i downgraded to FF v16 bc i cant get tab mix plus in 17 and i hate how firefox handles tabs, so i will not upgrade until tab mix plus works with v 17...as an aside...i always use the previous version of FF until tab mix plus works with whatever th current version is...
