26 of Firefox does not load the home page. Instead, it loads the previous session (and that includes all tabs). It does not matter how Firefox is closed.

26 of Firefox does not load the home page. Instead, it load the previous session, regardless of what has been entered in 'Options '. The browser runs in Win 7.0 64 bit; Norton Internet Suite 21 provides security features. There are some solutions 'cloud', also running as Google Drive, box, Skydrive and Cubby. The browser behaves in the same way in all my machines (installation and the OS is similar to that described above) and no amount of reset 'Options' seems to affect it. Nor is it affected by the way that Firefox is closed. This is obviously a bug that should be fixed.

You can check if you have a user.js file in the Firefox profile folder that affects the pref browser.sessionstore.resume_session_once true value.

  • Firefox opens the last session and tabs regardless of settings.

    For the last month or two, I had this problem as well as others. Kept getting a popup to set my search engine, I did several times without success. This question went. Tab question remains.

    No matter what setting I use open the previous session. I have Tab Mix Plus 0.4.1.8 so I've disabled that and checked the settings in FF to open to my Home Page. No good, don't always open the previous session.

    This was not a problem with Tab Mix Plus over the years that I used it. Exactly, I removed it from the Add - ons. Options of FF and together to start with the Home Page and restarted FF but always opens the previous session.

    Your list of details of the system shows that you have a user.js file in the profile folder to initialize prefs each time you start Firefox.
    The user.js file will be present if you or a other software created this file and normally will not present.

    You can check if you have a user.js file in the Firefox profile folder that affects the pref browser.sessionstore.resume_session_once true value.

    You can check its contents with a text editor (right click: 'Open with'; do not double-click).
    The user.js file is read whenever Firefox is started and initializes the preferences to the specified value in this file, so the preferences set via user.js can be changed temporarily for the current session.

    You can remove the user.js file if you do not create this file yourself.

    You can use this button to go to the current Firefox profile folder:

    Windows hides certain default file extensions.
    Among them .html and .txt, so you can see only a user file name without .ini and .js file extension.
    You can check the type of file (file extension) in the properties of the file via the context menu in Windows Explorer.

  • Why Firefox doesn't save my tabs from the previous session although I chose to do it in the options?

    Firefox does not save my tabs from the previous session, although I have chosen in options, to save my tabs from the previous session.

    Firefox 4 saves the previous session automatically, so it is no longer necessary for the dialog box asking if you want to save the current session.

    Use ' file > exit ' or ' Firefox > output "If you want to restore multiple windows.

    You can use "Firefox > history > restore previous Session ' to get the previous session at any time.

    There is also a button 'Restore previous Session' on the default on: Home home page.

    Another possibility is to use:
