"Show my windows and tabs from last time ' has stopped working after software updated to the end of January or early February. Now on 12.0a2. Change options "Auora to start: ' no longer works.

I use this feature for years and update Firefox/Aurora in the next few days, maybe a week, an update becomes available and everything suddenly ' show my windows and tabs from last time ' has stopped working. I can go to the Tools-Option-general tab and change "at Aurora startup:" to this option, or 'Show my home page (s)' and now the opening in a new tab single even though I have URLs there. This may mean that this bit is not read correctly. I'm not playing: config, but I watch a few spoken options in the Web and everything looked OK.

I would uninstall and reinstall it if you think it will solve the problem. I updated Aurora again because this problem started and it remains broken. It is a system of XP with SP3

PS: I have two other windows with a XP and the other Windows 7. When I had the problem on my primary XP System I stopped to make updates to other systems. Today I updated the two other systems with the latest Auora (skip one or two updates) and both work very well.

The best way for me to trouble?

Hey punchcard4rjw,

Have you tried to start Firefox in Mode safe? Key 'shift' startup of Firefox. If it doesn't happen in Mode without failure, you should read the extensions, themes and problems of hardware acceleration to resolve common troubleshooting Firefox problems.

If this does not work, you should look the article How to fix preferences that will not save.

Hope this helps!

  • Show my windows and tabs from last time does not not in 14.0.1

    Last week, the functionality of Firefox to display the tabs from last time has stopped working. He can't have worked earlier.
    I can't find any reference to what is a matter of news, but according to the existing guidelines and what I tried, it should work.
    Any ideas?

    It is possible that there is a problem with the sessionstore.js and sessionstore.bak files in the Firefox profile folder.

    Delete the sessionstore.js file possible sessionstore-# .js files with a number and sessionstore.bak in the Firefox profile folder.

    Delete sessionstore.js will cause App Tabs and tab groups and opened and closed the tabs (back) to get lost, so you will need to create them again (take note or bookmarks).

  • In version 13.0 is selected the option "when Firefox starts to show my windows and tabs from last time", but I always get default page of Firefox.

    Even thought is selected the option ' when Firefox starts to show my windows and tabs from last time "I always have the default page of Firefox.

    Hi Goldie_,

    I guess you don't watch this page when you closed Firefox last time. Also that you are not in private, correct navigation mode? Looks like it is maybe a problem with Firefox being able to save your file pref.js. You should try the steps listed in the preferences section that won't save trouble. Try and let me know how it goes.

    Hope this helps!

Google gmail tab is there - and I am sure that I always have to login.

  • I want to set so that I get the system restore, but when I go to tools, general, during startup of Firefox, show my windows and tabs from last time is gray and cannot be chosen - how to select, please?

    In addition, above and below the central main screen shows the desktop in the bottom of the tool or menu and the address bar and one downstairs that displays the current pages of use, clock, etc. This should be now or can we change it?

    Make sure that you do not run Firefox in private - browsing using Firefox without saving the story mode (permanent).

    • In private browsing mode some menu items and features are disabled and show as gray choice.
    • You're in private browsing mode, if you see "tools > stop private browsing", possibly gray.
    • You enter private browsing mode, if you select: Tools > Options > privacy > History: Firefox will be: "don't forget the story ever.
    • To view the history settings and cookies, choose: Tools > Options > privacy, choose the Firefox will setting: use the custom settings for history

    Pure speculation, but maybe the program Identity Finder is delete your browsing history which is the way Firefox restores the tabs, windows, and the previous session. Check with the technical support for this program or look at the manual.

  • Why my "display windows and tabs from last time ' does not work?

    Hi all

    I used to have my settings set to "display windows and tabs from last time." For some reason, it does not. Whenever I close my tabs, Firefox warns you me I close many tabs, and when I reopen it Firefox, I only get my home page.

    In the menu options, I put 'windows and tabs from last time' options, and in private life, I have "Firefox will remember history", so I do not think it is related to my settings.

    I saw a thread on 'browser.sessionstore.enabled' must be true about: config, but I don't have even a name preference that says "browser.sessionstore.enabled. Maybe that's the problem? If so, I have NO IDEA how to fix this. I only am not at all computer savvy.

    If someone could find a solution to this very annoying problem, I would be very grateful. If it takes a lot of work of programming/techno, please be VERY descriptive (pretend I'm a 5 year old child in giving directions).

    Thank you!

    Browser.sessionstore.Enabled is no longer used, worry not if you can't find it.

    In case you use "clear history of Firefox closing:

    • do not erase browsing history – which will prevent the restoration of the work session.

    Note that compensation "Preferences of Site" clears all exceptions for cookies, images, pop-up windows, installation of software, passwords, and other specific data from Web site.

    Deletion of cookies will delete all specified (selected) cookies, including cookies with an exception allowing you want to keep.

    You can check the prefs of . browser.sessionstore * including browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash on the topic: config page and reset the browser.sessionstore prefs that are correct (in bold) user via the context menu in the default value to make sure that the Session Restore is enabled and functional.

  • Y at - it a command line option that overrides to the "show my windows and tabs from last time"?

    One of my friends sometimes runs into a web page which causes him problems. To be sure, it must note the URL and submit a bug report, if a page causes a browser crash, but in any case, although by default, he likes the browser to restore windows and tabs from the previous session, in the case of a heinous webpage, you * don't * want that to happen. I hope that I can set up an icon so he can click on that starts the browser on its homepage instead of restore the tabs and windows when it gets into trouble.

    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 reboot after a failure has occurred or the Task Manager was used for the closing of Firefox.

    Which allows to deselect the tabs that you do not want to reopen, but will reopen the other tabs.
