Firefox 4.0 is a very nice improvement to the older versions. Apparently, it is 6x faster than version 3.6! Of course, it may not feel that way, but that’s what they say. This version brings some big interface changes to the table along with the improvement in speed. One thing it does NOT bring, however, is the ability to save your opened tabs when closing or exiting Firefox. Yep, that’s right. The message simply does not pop up asking if you want to save the tabs or not! You’ll be warned about having multiple tabs opened, but that’s it. That’s a beloved feature! Most people would want to be able to have Firefox 4.0 Save Multiple Tabs On Close after all.
Firefox will address this for sure in an update, but until then you must tweak Firefox yourself! This solution does not involve having to install a plugin / extension either, so do not worry! No downloads at all.
Check out the guide on How to Save Tabs When Exiting in Firefox 4.0 for help on how to do it! You literally just have to alter one setting in about:config. The message will then popup afterwards and you’ll be able to save your tabs when you exit Firefox or have them auto / automatically save on close.
