I just want my tabs to load for the web link they were originally set for. Instead I am getting the last page visited or the tab has been logged out.

I have "Show My Home Page" for the Startup option I have LastPass set to AutoLogin I have the cookies for the tab sites in the Cookies Exceptions list

Despite all of this, the tabs are "logged out" when I restart Firefox, and sites that have no logins are not opened based on the web address the tab was origianlly set for.

Re: I just want my tabs to load for the web link they were originally set for. Instead I am getting the last page visited or the tab has been logged out.

In case you are using "Clear history when Firefox closes":

  • do not clear the Browsing History
  • do not clear the Cookies
  • do not clear the Site Preferences

Note that clearing "Site Preferences" clears all exceptions for cookies, images, pop-up windows, software installation, and passwords.

Clearing cookies will remove all specified (selected) cookies including cookies with an allow exception that you would like to keep.

Type about:config in the URL and filter

  • browser.stratup.homepage and change the value as the website you need to load.

or

Firefox Menu > Tools > options

  • General > Startup > When firefox starts " Show my Home Page"


Firefox Menu > Tools > options > Privacy > History

  • Firefox will: "Use custom settings for history":
  • Select: [x] Accept Cookies from sites
    • Accept third party cookies: "From Visited"
  • Keep until "They Expire"
  • Deselect: [ ] "Clear history when Firefox closes"

Thank you cor-el! This is just what was needed to set the cookies to apply only to the tabs used and using the exceptions list.
