Safari does not open where I left off

    In Mountain Lion everything is supposed to open where left off including Safari, but for me it doesn't work for some reason, at least not always. If I close all the tabs and then reopen or if I just restart without closing anything in advance sometimes Safari opens exactly where I left off sometimes it doesn’t. I cannot see any pattern, any ideas anyone?

    Just to make sure, what setting do you have selected within the Safari preferences?

    Due to either Mountain Lion or Safari 6.0.5, this checkbox is lost from my Safari's general preferences.

    I know this isn't exactly an ideal solution, but until you figure out what's going on you can use the "restore windows from last session" option under "history"

    That is what I have. It is named differently but it is the same thing “New windows open with: Same page”

    My problem is that it does not work all the time, sometimes it does sometimes it doesn’t and I don’t know the reason. Sometimes I cmd+Q and it closes all the tabs and then when I open up Safari again here they are all the tabs exactly where I left off, other time cmd+Q closes all the tabs again but when I reopen Safari it goes to the home page and it doesn’t seem to have any pattern. The only thing I can think of is that it might have something to do with the fact that I have it Remove History Items after one week and you have it after one year…
