Enable the Save Session Option When Closing Firefox 4- PC Software Help

Many people use Mozilla Firefox over other browser like Internet Explorer for reasons such as reliability, performance and advanced features. One of the things many people liked about Firefox is that it saved your browsing session when you closed the browser so when you opened it again you could resume where you left off. It did this by asking you if you wanted to save your session when you exited it so you had a choice each time.

With the release of Firefox 4, Mozilla decided that you didn't need to be asked if you wanted to save your browsing session upon exiting Firefox. So now when you close your browser and reopen it later it just goes to your home page. To get your last browsing session back you can go to the History menu and then click on Restore previous session but who wants to do that each time?

There is a way to enable the prompt for Firefox to save your session on exit and here is how you do it. Open Firefox and type about:config in the address bar and press Enter.

Click on the I'll be careful, I promise! Button.
