Arrow Force Safari to Open Homepage, Not Last Viewed

Am I missing something?? How Can I do this?

I want google to come up when I open Safari not whatever I was looking at previously. Is this possible? I don't see the option.

System preferences, general, uncheck "restore windows when quitting and re-opening apps"

Or, if you don't want that feature disabled globally, quit Safari by using option-cmd-q instead of cmd-q.

okay I did both the General system preferences disable and my preferences in Safari were already set to open the homepage with a new window. I quit Safari and opened it and it restored everything.

open Safari to your homepage and quit it. then go to ~/Library/Saved Application State/ and lock com.apple.Safari.savedState and then Safari should always open to the state that you just locked

note: to lock a file/folder right click it and choose Get Info (or select it & press command+I) and then click "Locked" in the info window.

Thumbs up

Locking the save state file and opt+cmd q both worked for me. Thanks for sharing... now Safari is once again a viable browser for me...
