On Firefox--how do I set it to open the tabs of the previous session?

The desktop computer I use already does this, i.e. it opens each website in its own tab which had been open when I last closed Firefox. But, the Firefox browser on Ruby's Win10 laptop is opening with only the home page showing when the browser is opened again.

Worse yet, that home page is Bing.

I will be interested in setting a home page more to Ruby's liking, or to mine. But, first--how do I get it to open the tabs which were open when I closed it?

If you just want to set a homepage, that's dead easy!

Tools menu > General tab.

You'll see "When Firefox starts:" Select "Show my home page".

Below that, copy/paste the URL to the site.

If you want more than one page, you'll need the session manager.


Here's a page explaining how to fiddle around with it.


If I remember rightly, you can shutdown Firefox, using Task Manager, instead of closing it, as you'd normally do. Then, when it starts, it asks you if you want to restore your last session, anyway.

If you use the TabMix+ add-on, as I do, that has a session manager, as well.


That works with PaleMon and Cyberfox, too.
