Version 14.0.1 won't save tabs on exit.

Version 14.0.1 won't save tabs on exit.

All of the HELP articles I've found are for version 4--I have version 14. One thing you can do is put the most recent problems first, NOT the problems from 10 versions ago.

I want to make the default setting to be ALWAYS SAVE TABS ON EXIT. Put this option someplace easy to find, like the TOOLS / OPTIONS / TABS section. It seems like this has been an on-going problem for many versions of FIREFOX. I had it available in prior versions, but it's not there now. Why would you take it out?

Re: Version 14.0.1 won't save tabs on exit.

Nothing has changed in this area from Firefox 4, so if you found solutions for earlier versions you should check them out.

Anyway it looks like you want your old tabs restored, without any indication and it is most likely that you changed your option, if you think this was just changed in version 14. From Verdi's reply, specifically you want "Show my windows and tabs from last time" where you set your homepage options, see

For others that may want more subtler options, see

That option was removed in Firefox 4. Firefox no longer asks you if you want to save your tabs on exit. See the article, How do I restore my tabs from last time? for instructions.
