Hi all,

I like the 'new' mozilla multiprocess feature. However when enabled it load automatically all the browser tabs that were open in my last browsersession, which i don't like. To disable loading all tabs on startup it set; 'tabs.remote.autostart' to 'false'. Which also disables multi-process..

How can i use multi-process without loading all tabs on firefox startup?

Cheers.

Thanks all. I found out that an extension called 'browsing protection by f-secure' (my virusscanner) was forcing to load all tabs on startup. Disabling this extension did the trick. However i now cannot make use of it now. That's a bit of a pitty.

Hi, open Options > General (When Firefox starts) and make sure it isn't set to Show your windows and tabs from last time.

If your question is resolved by this or another answer, please take a minute to let us know. Thank you!

But then i lose my tabs from last browsersession. I don't want to lose them, i only want to 'not load' them at startup. In previous version this was possible. Tabs load when clicking on them, not by themself.

hi, this should still be the default behaviour. could you enter about:config into the firefox address bar (confirm the info message in case it shows up) & search for the preference named browser.sessionstore.restore_on_demand. check that this preference is set to true.
