    Every time I start Firefox and I get the - Well this is embarrassing message trying to restore sites and tabs message.

    I get this every time I initially open Firefox, I assume a Firefox update has caused this to start happening but I cannot stop it.

    Firefox will not start up at the selected homepage, and yes I have checked the prefs are right.

    I have several Macs all doing the same thing.

    EDIT: Just downloaded Firefox onto a different HD running Lion where Firefox has never been before and it is doing on that also.

    Anybody know how I can stop this from happening ? Or is it as I assume a Firefox problem which it looks like ?

    Reply from a kind person over on the Apple Community forums.

    This is a minor bug: Firefox are aware.

    To stop it - type about:config in the address bar and hit return.

    Scroll down to 'browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash

    Double-click 'true' to change it to 'false'.


    Hope this helps anyone else with the same problem.
