For some reason half the time firefox shows tabs/pages when I last had it open. Even though I tell it to use blank pages and made it use homepage (close/open) and set back to blank page (closed and reopened it). Half the time it shows a blank page like i selected the other half it shows the last few tabs/pages.

Is there any way to fix this? I believe it happened starting this version (21) and i been checking for an update weekly hoping for a fix.


I have my Startup options set up as shown below and it works for me 100% of the time:


If you want you can also open about:config and set browser.newtab.url to about:blank as well.

    What I fail to understand is why it would be so inconsistent. Perhaps it's due to a bad extension, so try disabling them all. Also try starting afresh with no remnants of your existing profile. – Karan Jun 16 '13 at 16:07
  • Good idea. The moment it happens again i'll try to reproduce it and try extensions. I have more then one profile so the others will few addons might help me narrow it down – user3109 Jun 16 '13 at 21:07
  • I figured out two things. 1) It happens when I have no addons 2) It happens on more then one profile. I have 3 and I can confirm it happens on two of the three (the one i have addons is the only one i havent confirmed but its the one i close the least). Also when it happens closing/opening doesn't trigger it so it doesnt seem to have to do with the amount of tabs or page – user3109 Jun 20 '13 at 18:20
