Firefox Tip - Restoring Accidentally Closed Sessions

Many times I loose my heart when I accidentally close Firefox browser while typing a lengthy e-mail, blog posts or comments on my favorite post. With Firefox 2.0 I don't need to worry about this anymore. Firefox allows restoring a closed session intact with all the form entries. Follow these steps to configure Firefox to restore closed sessions intact

  1. Go to Tools menu and select Options...
  2. Click on Main tab
  3. Select "Show my windows and tabs from last time" from the "When Firefox starts" drop down
  4. Click on Ok button to save the changes
  5. That's it. done.

To see this trick in action, perform a simple test. Open website and type a sample search query say "Testing Firefox ability to a restore session". Now close and re-open the Firefox browser.
