Firefox 4 - save tabs on close

2011-05-04 by xpheas
Firefox 3.6 ask if you want to save your session if you have multiple tabs open and close the browser. For some reason Firefox 4 doesen't. I fixed the issue by changing the value of browser.showQuitWarning from false to true in about:config

sudo su
echo "export LIBOVERLAY_SCROLLBAR=0" > /etc/X11/Xsession.d/80-disableoverlayscrollbars
