Restor­ing all my pre­vi­ous tabs

Mac Format - - MAC SOS -

When I need to re­boot my Mac for up­dates or when I get the beach­ball and things aren’t re­spond­ing, I check the box for all my tabs to open on re­boot. But once re­booted, the tabs are there but blank! Each time I have to start from scratch, which is very an­noy­ing since I have mul­ti­ple pages open! Paul Dixon The shut­down di­a­log box asks if you want to re­open win­dows when log­ging back in, not the tabs within each win­dow. Tabs are the re­spon­si­bil­ity of the apps them­selves (in this case, Sa­fari). If you force-quit Sa­fari, it re­stores all pre­vi­ously opened tabs. But if it closes nor­mally or sec­ondary to a sys­tem shut­down, what hap­pens next de­pends on a check box in Gen­eral pref­er­ences. If you ticked ‘Close win­dows when quit­ting an ap­pli­ca­tion’, Sa­fari closes all open win­dows and tabs and won’t re­open them on restart. If the check box is clear, Sa­fari at­tempts to re­open tabs. There used to be a bug in Sa­fari 6 that pre­vented tabs from reload­ing cor­rectly. I haven’t seen it in Sa­fari 7, but maybe it’s still there. If up­grad­ing to Sa­fari 7 doesn’t help, force tabs to reload by click­ing His­tory > Re­open All Win­dows from Last Ses­sion, in the Sa­fari menu.
