Need to open a preferred set of App Tabs when Firefox is started? After my post about App Tabs, DarkMan72 mentioned that it still gave him trouble. If you clear your browser cookies often, App Tabs might give you problems. Here are his thoughts:
People often run into problems when Firefox updates, because some of their favorite add-ons no longer work. Well, it isn’t exactly that they will not work.

In this article I’ll see what I can do to help you out when it comes to getting them re-enabled.

Does it seem that Firefox 3.5 is a little sluggish when it starts on your Windows-powered machine?
Due to some unknown reason, Firefox on Windows pulls certain file locations for security reasons.

This problem was fixed in Firefox 3.5.1. To check for updates, be sure to go to Help > “Check for Updates…” in Firefox. Thanks to the Firefox development team for the speedy update!
