@Elliot Kirk My school locks down the startup features to the 'Open with a specific set of pages' which means I can't have my work pop back up after I close the browser. Firefox gets around this problem by adding a separate checkbox labeled: restore previous session. I would like this to be added to settings, but be passive( non clickable) button when 'continue where you left off' is chosen, so it isn't redundant.

This could also be useful to people who want to open to Bing or other pages but still not lose their work.

Hi @cjc2112, are you allowed to log into the browser with your account?  If so, you should soon be able to use the sync feature to bring open tabs from one session over to your current session.  Is this sor tof what you are looking for?  Thanks - Elliot

@Elliot Kirk Sorry for the delay.

Yes I am allowed to log in, but I would like to be able to restart the browser without losing what I already had open.
