Tab question with Mozilla

Is there any way that you can 'retain' your tabs in mozilla, so that they will be there even if you close the browser? When i have tabs open, and want to close the browser or shut off computer, it says, "close tabs too?"

Can you save them?

The only way I know to "save" a group of tabs in the standard browser is to bookmark them. Go to Bookmarks and see if you have a "Bookmark this group of tabs" option. That will ask you for a folder name/description and bookmarks for the open tabs will be saved in that folder. Then whenever you restart the browser, you can go back to bookmarks and open them again. AFAIK, there's no way to open all of them at once. You have to open each one separately. But at least you've got them saved.

Opera allows you to do what you want... no need to save them... just don't close them....

I believe that shaun3000 meant to refer to Tabbrowser Extensions.

Anyway, if you're using Firefox 0.9+, download the version from the author's web site. I don't think the version that you find on the various Firefox extension sites have been updated.

I think he was talking about putting all your bookmarks into a folder and then you can open them all in tabs when you start up.

I'm running Netscape 7.02, which was created from Mozilla 1.4. If you don't know which version of Mozilla you have, is there a Help -> About option? If so, what does it tell you?

I'm not sure how to make Mozilla the default browser since I've never used it. In NS 7, if you go to Edit -> Preferences, there's a button you can click on the "Navigator" page to make it the default browser. I'm guessing that there's a similar setting for Mozilla, but how you get to it may be different.

Tabbrowser Extensions is a little too bloated IMO.

There is an awesome extension called SessionSaver that I think may suit your needs even better.

You can set it to remember everything, so when you open the browser back up all tabs are open, all in there previous scroll-state, all in their previous order, and you're looking at exactly what you were when you closed the browser.

You can also save multiple "sessions" and come back to them later. This is definitely one of my favorite extensions.
