    Default Firefox issue

    My Firefox (version 96.0.1) is behaving not so correctly:

    I have unticked "Open previous windows and tabs" in Startup,

    Click image for larger version.

    but, it still opens the previous page when I launch Firefox. It was not like this --only after the last two updates (I think).

    Its a Firefox Screw up again I think. My office PC started doing the same this morning, opening at the last page I closed of at, (Same version 96.0.1).

    It SHOULD have opened at the Speed dial window ( Addon) that has numerous Tiled shortcuts. Wasn't till I ran Ccleaner and wiped out all temp / cookies did it return to normal.

    Haha, I knew that idiotic "lets abuse version numbering by giving minor versions their own major version numbers" was a bad idea.

    Maybe they should just go back to being sensible, Firefox is only really version 5 or 6 at most, if you consider major changes.

    Of course this is really all Google's fault, since they started this stupidity with Chrome.
    "OuRs hAs A mUcH hIgHeR VeRsIoN NuMbEr sO iTs BeTtEr".... Ugh. But there's enough idiots who believe that, so it presumably worked.

    Firefox version 98.0.0 out today.
    It's not the least charm of a theory that it is refutable. The hundred-times-refuted theory of "free will" owes its persistence to this charm alone; some one is always appearing who feels himself strong enough to refute it - Friedrich Nietzsche

    Firefox version 100 is expected on May the 3rd.

    I tend to use the ESR versions of Firefox.
