I have found a few times that if you close the Firefox window, it forgets all the tabs in it (optionally it warns you for that with a pop-up). But if I Quit firefox (via the menu or Control-Q) it remembers them. I am guessing from this that exiting X will do the equivalent of closing the Firefox window, instead of choosing its Quit function. -Olaf. -- ___ Olaf 'Rhialto' Seibert -- Wayland: Those who don't understand X \X/ rhialto/at/xs4all.nl -- are condemned to reinvent it.
