opera launches on startup


i'm running mandrake 9.1 and for the last few days or so whenever i boot the machine it launches opera in desktop 4. not a major problem, as I just have to close it down. just wondering if any one knew why it was doing this?

thanks in advance

KDE saves the session, so if it was running when you shut down, it will run everytime you start up.

Next time you boot, got to desktop 4 and shut down Opera from File>Quit, or exit or whatever. Just don't click the "X" in the upper right corner. Then it won't restart on the next boot.

I tried that - it still shows up on reboot. Also opera won't let me have 2 instances of itself open on different desktops. is this normal?

You can disable session autosave in Control center -> KDE components -> Session manager
