How can I get rid of the history that appears when I open a new tab?

When I open a new tab, I had a bunch of places I've been before. I don't want that. I don't need people to see where I've been by the images showing on the page. so, how can I get these gone?

Oh sorry, the link to locate the profile folder (designating the user.js file) is in the article profiles - where Firefox stores your bookmarks, passwords and other user data .

    How can I get rid of the box that appears when you start Firefox 'Restore previous Session'?

    Subject: House is the default in Firefox 4 home page - look at the address bar containing the addresses of web page - it is the container for Google search, with a 'extract container' and below these elements is the Previous Session Restore button. It's not the same homepage that previous versions of Firefox used (although it is similar in appearance), it is a 'local' page that won't load the Internet.

    Set this page as your home page, which is what Firefox 3.6 and earlier versions had for the default home page. He has Previous Session Restore button/link.

  • How can I reset the page that appears when I open a new tab "white"?

    MySearchDial reset my settings in several browsers. I deleted the program, I set my home page and removed the site from the list of engines of research possible, but when I opened a new tab "in white", it always opens with MySearchDial features. I tried the SearchReset extension, it did not work. I tried the subject: config newtab url, that does not work either.

    How to reset it?

    Could you take a second look at everything: config?

    (1) in a new tab, type or paste Subject: config in the address bar and press ENTER. Click on the button promising to be careful.

    (2) in the search above the list box, type or paste newtab and make a pause so that the list is filtered

    (3) If you check the browser.newtab.url preference, what is he on? These are the typical things:

    • (Default) page thumbnails = > subject: newtab
    • Blank tab = > subject: empty
    • Built-in Firefox homepage = > topic: welcome
    • Any other page = > full URL of the page

    If it is already set correctly, but still, you get a white page MySearchDial, one of your other extensions may be the problem.

    You can consult, disable and/or remove extensions on page modules. Either:

    • CTRL + SHIFT + a
    • "3-bar" menu button (or tools) > Add-ons

    In the left column, click Extensions. Then, when in doubt, turn off...

    If it indicates that it is locked or refuses to save the changes, Check Control Panel, uninstall a program for a program called research protect and remove that. Locked preference may also indicate the presence of a mozilla.cfg file. If you think that, please post back for more information, by simply removing this file can cause problems.

  • How can I change the page that appears when I open a new tab? He now brings to the top search engine Bing.

    I am running Win 7 Pro 64 on a laptop HP 4530. My desktop unit (home built) opens a new tab with a blank page. I would like to open each with a specific search engine.

    I guess that the order should be amended, so that the keyword. URL

    things. You may need to restart the system after you complete these Panel

  • How can I get rid of the number signs appearing in my PDF?

    Hi all!

    I hope you can help me solve this problem: when I create a PDF file with Acrobat Pro from Word (latest version), I get sharps that appear in the PDF file. I looked in my Word file to see if I could highlight some 'ghost' pound sign, but found nothing.

    You know the reason for this, and how can I solve this problem?

    THANKS in advance to those who respond.


    Hi Bill,

    I came this morning with a fresh perspective to the problem and have solved the problem: I realized that the text was in Cambria, so I changed it to the reliable Times New Roman. I created the PDF and book NO signs appeared scattered in the PDF file.

    Aye, fonts!

    Thanks for the reply and have a great day!
