i wonder why the TBE for phoenix does not support saving all tabs on close an reload them on startup like the TBE for mozilla does.
Is there really nobody wanting this nice feature ?

regards,
Friedhelm.

Alright, stupid me, I just realised I'd be downgrading:(

Isn't there something i could just change in my current version of Phoenix which would do the same thing? I'd rather not download the entire browser again just for that feature. Why the hell isn't it a feature of TBE anyway?

Why no more saving :( That was my favorite feature. I always surf with like 10 windows open and then close the browser for later to finish what I was doing.

Send email to Piro. He doesn't read these forums but does respond quite nicely to email. I've
found that he's been very good in implementing features if they're reasonable and reasonable
to do.

I did that, he suggested the suggestion that everyone else suggests here (and no longer works) He seemed unaware that this feature was broken. i sent an email back telling him this, but i never recieved a response...

I should add that i just upgraded to a nightly build earlier this week, and installed the (then) latest TBE, and the saving&restoring feature works.. beautifully.

Phoenix is now officially the only browser on my desktop.. yay!
