How to Disable Firefox ‘Restore Tabs After Crash’

Posted on Posted in Tips

I personally don’t understand the logic of attempting to restore the sites that just crashed your browser. :/ On the Mac, a slow site can tie up Firefox for minutes and make it unusable. Restoring those sites after forced quit is so frustrating. I found this online as a solution.

Following steps will be helpful to prevent Firefox from restoring previous sessions.

  1. In the Location bar, type about:config and press Enter.
  2. The about:config “This might void your warranty!” warning page may appear. Click I’ll be careful, I promise! to continue to the about:config page.
  3. In the Search box at the top, type browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash.
  4. In the resulting grid, double-click on browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash to set it to false.

That’s it! :) happy happy joy joy!
