How can I stop Firefox opening old windows/tabs after a crash?

every time it crashes and I try to re-open the program, it opens all my old tabs and windows. often, these are the videos which all begin to play both. or worse still, it opens the page that did crash in the first place and crashes again.

How can I stop this annoying feature?

If there is no way to stop it, can you recommend a simple browser that don't try to think for you?

The value of the integer pref browser.sessionstore.max_resumed_crashes to 0 on the subject: config page in order to get the about: sessionrestore page immediately with the first start after a collision has occurred or the Task Manager was used for the closing of Firefox.

This way, you see if the previous session is not close properly or it crashed and deselects the tabs that you do not want to reopen, but will reopen the other tabs.

  • How can I stop firefox open Web sites related to my search?

    Hello.

    I'm having a problem with firefox and it's getting really annoying.

    When I search something in the upper right search box, Firefox opens a Web site with my research already established in the site (e.g. ebay or amazon, but it is irrelevant because I am looking something like "How do I ") but I don't want to do that, he has never opened a site I want.

    I also disabled at each outside of google's search engine within the parameters of "search".

    I also refreshed firefox and reinstalled several times.

    Thank you

  • I can't stop firefox opening a new tab when I type a URL in the address bar.

    I have the ability to open windows into tabs and I love it. My problem is when I type a URL in the address bar, rather than load him on this page, it opens a new page. No matter what type of page I made this. When I CTRL + T to open a TAB, and then type in the address bar and it opens a new tab the TAB Leaving previous, I opened intact. I would like to just so that it loads the page on that I entered.

  • How can I stop Firefox opening iTunes or ask me which application I want to use for the links from the itms/itmss?

    When I opened iTunes App Store link, Firefox wants to automatically open iTunes. In Options > Applications, I found the itms and itmss content types, which causes this behavior. I can change "always ask them", but when I do, I get a automatic every time I open the link asking me to choose between "iTunes" or "Choosing an Application." To avoid future pop ups, I check "Remember my choice for itmss links" but only after selecting iTunes or another application. There should be a third option there for 'doing nothing '. Is it possible to tell Firefox to ignore completely the content of the itms/itmss?

    COR - el said

    Is there some prefs the protocol handler if you are looking for the topic: config page?

    • Network.protocol - handler.

    You just solved my problem - there is no Network.protocol - handler.external. itms or itmss prefs, so I added the Boolean values:

    Network.protocol - handler.external.itms
    Network.protocol - handler.external.itmss

    Set to false and voila! No iTunes, don't ask me what program to use.

  • How can I stop Firefox open automatically at startup since the last update on the Macintosh under Tiger?

    Firefox will automatically launch at startup every time. I don't want it. If I want, I'll click. I'm not on the internet every time I start my computer and do not have to wait FOR it to start so I can leave. I don't know why she does - never done before - and it's EXTREMELY annoying! Help! I'm on a Macintosh running with Tiger OS.

    It is a setting of Mac.

    1. Click accounts (in the line of the System Preferences window system)
    2. Click the login items tab
    3. Click on Firefox in the list of applications
    4. Click on the "-" symbol
  • How can I stop Firefox from closing of tabs or sessions automatically?

    If I have one session open Firefox invites you to recover the previous session but with 2 windows, which sometimes happens with some tabs from infinity that I don't care, the last window is saved (the one with 5 tabs instead of one with 165 tabs) and I lose my entire browsing history. This question actually forced me to swap browsers repeatedly by pure frustration about the loss of research. I use TooManyTabs to save some but it becomes so tedious to manage in this elsewhere, even with tab groups, my navigation is non-linear and does not always follow a set of rules, you can group easily to do its usually the pages more valuable I lose links to. He must really be a solution for this.

    Good to hear you get this window.

    I do not envy the UI designers, trying to make things more and more visible with less space. And when they create Adaptive UIS that seems to read your mind, it's scary.

    It might be a good idea after the restoration of a session the first time to open a help page explaining how to use the history menu to restore more windows and tabs. The problem with single pages is that no one seems to remember them when they need it. Sigh.

    If there are problems with the implementation at day then best is to download the full version and uninstall the currently installed version and remove the Firefox program folder to remove all remaining files.

    Download a new copy of Firefox and save the file to the desktop.

    Uninstall your current version of Firefox, if possible.

    • Do NOT remove the data of a personal nature when you uninstall the current version or you lose your bookmarks and other data, because all profile files will be deleted.

    Delete the program folder Firefox before installing newly downloaded copy of the Firefox installer.

    Your bookmarks and other profile data stored in the Firefox profile folder and will not be affected by a relocation, but make sure that you do not select delete data of a personal nature if you uninstall Firefox.

  • How can I restart firefox with the same tabs and windows?

    How can I restart firefox with the same tabs and windows?

    It is not in the file menu or tools. I get nothing when searching for help. FF still knows how to do it, say to update extensions.

    I know that I can do by saving my session, coming out, reboot and restore the session but is there a single command to do this?

    Thank you. -David

    I have attached a screenshot showing how to select restore automatic session just above the setting of the Home Page where it says "When Firefox starts".

    With this set, you can restart Firefox manually out using the menu-

    • "3-bar" menu button > button "power".
    • (menu bar) File > Exit

    -and then restart Firefox.

    If you want a real reboot with a click of button, you can check something on the Add-ons site: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/
