    My computer died and I had ship it to apple. I was in firefox at the time that it died. Will firefox spring back open and load those same pages up again for those techs upon STARTUP??

    First the techs will have to fix it. Secondly I'm not sure if the sudden termination (aka death of the computer) will count as a "crash" or not.

    I know sometimes my computer would shut down for no reason, then I would have to MANUALLY relaunch firefox. When it simply crashes it usually does relaunch automatic (throwing up all those pages u were just on) though, right?

    I was on some private social sites and last time I had to turn some hardware in my passwords mysteriously changed also, I got a mobile notice. Although that had nothing to do with apple I need to know if firefox would startup on its own or not so I can change my passwords in advance. Thanks.

    I would hope that your school account had a session timeout setting.

    But yes, if your computer crashes, once they pull all the power from it (AC and battery) it will wipe whatever was in memory, thus removing all 'Open' applications.

    Ok well I have = iCal set to email me events instead of the pop up notice. I just got a BURST of emails on my mobile phone!!

    I know this can't happen unless my computer is ON and iCal is open right? How do you explain this?!? Are they in my calander??
