I can't save the tabs when Firefox is closed

I tried the solution in this link
Firefox does not ask to save tabs, windows and exit
but it did not work

Advertisement

One of the changes in Firefox 4: by default Firefox 4 does not display the warning "Save tabs and exit" then to the closure of several tabs, but it can be turned on again by changing some preferences.

  • Record of the tabs was not removed from Firefox 4, but it works a little differently.

    • By default, Firefox 4 will not ask to save tabs, but instead it will always save your tabs in the output. You can restore the next time by selecting "Restore previous Session" in the history menu, or by pressing the button restore Firefox's default homepage.
    • Note: This was a decision by the developers. On this forum, we are all volunteers without compensation here to help other users. Develop them and employees of Mozilla/Firefox rarely, if ever visit here.

To display the message "save tabs and exit" when closing multiple tabs, you can do the following:

  1. Type of topic: config in the URL/address bar and press the Enter key
  2. Accept the warning message (promise to be careful)
  3. Open the preferences/list page
  4. Filter = browser.tabs.warnOnClose
  5. If its value is set to false, double-click top (in the lower panel) to toggle its value to true
  6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 for the 3 following preferences also:
    • browser.warnOnQuit
    • browser.warnOnRestart
    • browser.showQuitWarning
  7. See:

  • Save my tabs when Firefox is closed so that they are always there when I restart Firefox

    You have to use restore on my computer recently and once I did, Firefox seems to have lost the ability to save the tabs that I had opened since the last time that I used it, do not remember how it was configured to save tabs after each session. Also restore previous session was grayed out on then the previous session was not guarded, was able to recover some of the tabs looking through my story, right now I can't just close Firefox and open it to my previous tabs, it starts a new session. Will be closed in the future Firefox until a solution is found from my task manager, because it usually allows me to restore the previous Firefox tabs because it acts as an accident.

    Normally, Firefox saves your open windows and tabs that you will when your browser crashes, so it can restore your session automatically. To get Firefox to do this each time that you start, you can set that in the Options page. See: start-up, homepage, tabs and download settings.

    If Firefox does not always restore your session, check the Options page Privacy panel to ensure that:

    (1) you authorize Firefox saves history
    (2) you may not erase history at the stop

I did a format a few days earlier and since then I can not save the tabs I want , so I can see them again as long as I want to when I open Explorer . Is there anyway I can fix this? Because I had this version of Mozilla and before the format and I could also save my tabs... now the program don't give me this option when I close.

  • the old version would save the tabs when closing, how can I get the new version to do the same thing?

    the previous version would ask something like "save the file" when I would close firefox. as I use different tabs, it is a very useful feature for me. I want to get this same functionality on the new version, if I want to know how to go back to the old version.

  • I can't find the tab of Firefox which takes me to edit and print et al, except that I have a little bitty screen.

    I just got a new computer and have changed for windows 8, and the guy put in place with internet explore when I was accustomed to using firefox. My son put on firefox, but I can't find the tab firefox with access to edit, print, print preview, etc., except when I got the box of firefox on three-quarters of the screen, which is too small. How to fill the screen and still give me the small box so I can print? Please do not reply to an avalanche of gibberish, because the understanding of my computer is negligible.

    Hi Senyax, how are enlarge you Firefox when you want more? They will give you different results:

    (1) maximize the window (the middle between _ and X button)

    You should still be able to see the top bar of the window with the orange Firefox button. If you don't see this, one of your Firefox settings files could be damaged.

    (2) full screen (F11 key or the Firefox button orange > fullscreen)

    By default, nothing else that the site displays full-screen mode. Although you can have the tab bar and toolbar display (drag your mouse to the top of the screen and right click on an empty area of the tab bar, then uncheck "Hide toolbar"), you cannot use the orange Firefox menu button in this mode.

  • Since the update for Firefox 4, I am no longer offers the possibility to save the tabs when closing making it much faster to access these sites when starting the next day. Why this possibility has been removed? It's a favorite feature.

    Since the update for Firefox 4, I offer more the ability to save tabs on shutdown - makes more rapid access to these sites when commissioning the next day. Why this possibility has been removed? It was a feature favorite and saved a lot of time.

    Firefox 4 records the previous session.

    You can use "Firefox > history > restore previous Session" for the previous session.

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

    Another possibility is to use:

    • Tools > Options > general > startup: "When Firefox starts": "show my windows and tabs from last time '.

    You can set the preferences of warning on the topic: config page true via the context menu or toggle the value with a double click of the left.

    To open the topic: config page, type Subject: config in the address bar (address) and press the 'Enter' key, as you type the url of a Web site to open a Web site.

    If you see a warning then you can confirm that you want to access this page.

  • I can't save my tabs when I close Firefox 4 and I can not find anywhere for a click and save

    Under History menu I've found you can restore your last session but I can't open up Firefox and have the tabs it when I start

    Here's a screenshot to prove that the option is available:

  • Clsing Firfox 4. -for Yahoo does not save the tabs when closing like the previous versions. Your help says settings but does not tell me what setting...

    In all previous versions of Firefox, when I close Firefox, asked me if I wanted to save my tabs. The latest version does not have this option. Why not and what adjustment will bring back this feature. I don't have to pull down the menu history and ask the previous Session, I should be able to start with my previous session if I exit and not to close tabs.

    Updates should increase the functionality and NOT completely change the appearance of the program.

    Thank you

  • I have two screens; How can I change the screen when Firefox opens?

    Firefox allows to open on my main desktop screen. Now, for some reason, it opens on my screen side that I use for another purpose dedicated, and I always have to drag it to my main screen. How can I keep it there?

    If Firefox is maximized and then minimize the window and drag the window to the correct monitor and close Firefox to save the setting.
    After the reboot, you can maximize again.

  • How can we save the event when Photoshop is stopped?

    Hi all!!

    I have to perform actions on the record of events of a document. I had no problem doing the same thing. But, in the course of the different tests save event trigger scenarios, I fell on the situation in which a document without title is open and the user closes Photoshop. At this point, Photoshop prompts the message "do you want to save the document? Regardless of the user's selection ('Yes' / 'No'), the plugin is unable to obtain registration event, perhaps due to the termination of the application. I get the message of kSPInterfaceShutdownSelector directly. Don't stop to save event reminder.

    How can I make sure that my save event callback is executed each time a user saves a document?

    Thank you!
