One weird thing I noticed when I upgraded to Firefox 4 is that you no longer get offered the option of saving your tabs on exit.
This often came in handy for me at times when I needed to restart the browser for what ever reason (plug-in install, computer restart, etc) so I do wonder why it is disabled by default on Firefox 4.
Perhaps it is not used as often as I thought it might be…
Anyway, you can easily re-enable this prompt by following the simple steps below:
- In the URL bar, type about:config
- Search for the following and set them all to true (you can do this by either double clicking the value or right clicking –> Toggle)
You should now be prompted to save your tabs when you exit Firefox (as long as you have two or more tabs open of course ;))
Update: This should also work on Firefox 5.
