Remembering Tabs in Firefox 5! Help appreciated!

  gazmix 22:39 15 Aug 2011

Hi In Firefox 5, how do i shut down the browser & have it remember the tabs i have open? In version 3, i could close the browser & it would ask me if i wanted to remember the 5 or 6 tabs i had open, in version 5 it doesn't! Am i missing something??

Also, there is no progress bar at the bottom right to see how a page is loading!!

Why is the later version worse?

Can anyone help, i'm sure there is a simple answer.

I have an account with mozzilazine & yet when i try login it says my email address isn't valid, i try to re-register & it says my email is in use! They could help.

From Firefox help Firefox tabs

There isn't a progress bar any more and many of the latest versions of browsers have removed it. However if you look at the tab you will see a green circle which indicates the page is loading and bottom left indications of what it may be waiting for.

There still is a progress bar,of sorts. A very thin bright green barline progresses along the bottom edge of the browser address bar as a page is loading.

If you really want to put a progress bar back in the menu bar at the bottom (so long as you have the menu bar enabled)then this add-on will do that for text
