A puzzling observation...

Posted 07-15-2012 at 04:20 AM by rich_c

Recently, at work, I've been involved in/initiated a project to migrate some desktop PCs to Linux. Naturally, I sought advise from various Linux community sources including here. A lot of the responses I got quite rightly pointed out potential pitfalls. A few responses pointed out positive aspects. There were even responses that were, to me, entirely negative and seemed to pooh-pooh the idea that there could possibly be a problem with our current Windows desktops that Linux could resolve....

// This is the Debian specific preferences file for Iceweasel

Three convenient customizations to firefox / iceweasel

Restore an old/previous session, but do not load the tabs right away: an end to the dilemma of empty session versus restoring tabs. Add to "about:config", if it's not already there:
