    This is my biggest software design pet peeves. I hate when applications make too many choices for the user. Don't get me wrong, I don't like when a program asks the same question over and over again either.
    So I'm using firefox and I had about four or five windows open. And it froze up for over five minutes so I force killed it. When I opened it again it automatically tried to open all those websites I had open before - all at the same time. This isn't even a bug, it's the designers bad choice.
    I don't even need them open. I was only still using one. And I don't know which one caused the freeze (probably a flash heavy website like but I certainly don't want to open that one again.

    I'm trying to get Firefox to not do this anymore.

    Its something that you set up the first time you used Firefox. To change it open the Preferences and go to the Main tab and change the "When Firefox starts:" to what ever you want.
