if i understand you correctly, you want Firefox to start with the tabs from your last session, after a crash or after normal start.
No that is not what I want.
The user "lihatt
" sumerised it exactly. I asked for a 'startup session' and that is what I want to see!
UNcheck 'Ask to restore'.
I do not have 'Ask Before Restoring' checked. I set "When Broswer Starts: Restore"
Also unchecking "Enable Crash Recovery" will still 'popup' but with my 'startup session' instead of the 'crash session'. It is an even more useless popup. Besides, I wnat crash recovery. From the menu! Just no popup!
More info... Firefox does crashed when I log out, but only because of the way firefox handles tabs.
What I logout I send all clients a 'close window' signal, (using a app called 'xclosedown'. Firefox in that case pops up a winodw about close with multi-tabs. The next stand 5 seconds later, 'xclosedown' sees the application did not close down cleanly, so it assumes it is a 'bad app, that does not understand 'close window', and sends a 'destory window'. This crashes firefox (as if the X server died, which follows soo afterward anyway). So typically on logout a firefox with multiple tabs is 'crashed'.
This is 'logout crash' is probably VERY COMMON! Thanks to the firefox multi-tab close popup, and the common methods of practice of logout under X windows, being to just kill the X server. My own exit is 'more friendly' using "xclosedown" (a very old application), but it is not wide spread.
Next time I login I get a crash recovery popup from tab mix plus. When I say 'don't restore' as in don't restore the crash -- IT doesn't
BUT it also does NOT restore my NORMAL STARTUP SESSION! (home pages in locked tabs). That I would have assumed should be restored If I rejected the offered crash session. All I get is my untabed home pages! -- That is also not good. (perhaps a third button on the crash recovery popup? -- "Start normally
Even starting a new firefox window, when one is already running does not start my normal startup session. Again just my normal untabbed home pages!
I like the crash session kept, and I can select it form the menus, if I want to continue (usually not). But I don't want to see any 'crashed popup', period. Just my carefully prepared 'Startup Session', with its collection of locked and frozed tabs.
