old tabs wont save new web sites.
almost every time i have new tabs and i close out of it. it keeps it, BUT when ever i go to a different website on that tab and close out of it when i open ff again it has the web site of the original before i went to a new site.
do you mean Firefox is not retaining your browsing history??
Make sure that you do not run Firefox in (permanent) Private Browsing mode (Never remember history). Private Browsing - Use Firefox without saving history
- Tools > Options > Privacy > Firefox will: "Use custom settings for history"
- Deselect: [ ] "Always use private browsing mode"
In case you are using "Clear history when Firefox closes":
- do not clear the Browsing History
- Tools > Options > Privacy > Firefox will: "Use custom settings for history": [X] "Clear history when Firefox closes" > Settings
Note that clearing "Site Preferences" clears all exceptions for cookies, images, pop-up windows, software installation, and passwords.
