Restore Firefox Tabs

Is this funny or what. Before Internet Explorer 7 (IE7) I used to surf internet with IE6 from time to time; otherwise Firefox was my default browser. Now, I just use Firefox (2.0.0.1) 100%. The supposedly clever guys in Microsoft just screwed things up completely. After years and years of silence they came up with something barely compatable with Firefox. It has nothing revolutionary at all. What is worse, the seemingly new UI is simply awful.

Well, IE7 has nothing to with this entry but I just had shout that out.

When working with Firefox I sometimes need to close it (to restart the computer immediately or something in the same vain) and naturally I want restart Firefox and continue from where I left off. If Firefox had crashed I’d be protected but not otherwise. Thankfully, there is a solution. Now, you can reload all your tabs, always.

1. Type about:config in the address bar and press Enter.

2. Now, right-click in the browser window and select New >> Boolean.

3. A box will appear. In this box, type browser.sessionstore.resume_session and click Ok.

4. Now set the value as True and click Ok.

5. Go to Tools >> Options.

6. Under Startup, select When Firefox starts, and set Show my windows and tabs from last time and click Ok.

That’s it and you are done. (from Tech Xpress)
