sticky tabs

Postby sloto on Wed Dec 19, 2007 1:22 pm

When I open FF I have 5 old tabs (always the same ones) I close all of them and restart FF and there they are again....help

This is a FF problem
If you don't have a bookmark for it (then make one!) write
about:config
in the URL bar (is it called that? Where you have the URL on top of FF)
then filter for tab and you see the options for tabs
I guess this one
browser.tabs.autoHide
may be false and not true

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

Thanks Husse. Browser tabs auto hide was not the bug. But I'm sure I can find it now that I have that site....Sloto

Well I spoke too soon. I tried putting anything to do with tabs or sessions back to default at the "about:config" site and I still have the same old "tired" tabs every time I open FF. Would sure like to clear this up because Epiphany browser don't have all the goodies.

I found that after I closed the persistant tabs, if I hit the home icon, the tabs came back AH HA.
I changed my open page to blank page-restarted FF- went to my home page (Google news) and set it as my home page again. All is well. At least for now.

By nick you mean like "Slotoxxxxxx"?
Apparently I was adding the confirmation code to my nick before my post was rejected when I put it in the right box and then forgot to shorten nick, sorry,as always.
Anyway the thing I came back for was to explain how I prevented sticky tabs from happening: Don't click {[use current page] when you have tabs on bar.

Ah - I always click the wheel for tabs - easy and saves you some problems (and I've seen other problems with tabs - don't remember what though)
