Recently Closed Tab how to

Hi guys,

But one question, I wanna enable the Recently Closed Tab ... in the History. Can someone help me out?

Session Store

The "Undo Closed Tab" functionality is actually just a side-effect of the Session Store. If you wish to revisit your choice of enabling or disabling the Session Store capability in Firefox Portable, you can simply delete the FirefoxPortable\Data\settings\FirefoxPortableSettings.ini file and run Firefox Portable again. Firefox Portable will think it's the first time you've run it, so it will present the same options window you saw before (including the guidance about performance).

Or, you could edit the config directly by entering about:config into the Firefox location bar, entering sessionstore as the Filter and double-clicking the browser.sessionstore.enabled entry.

Hope this helps.  -hea

Personally I keep the session

Personally I keep the session store enabled, but I set the browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash value to False in about:config, so even if I terminate the process, it won't ask to restore the last session.

The preference browser.sessionstore.interval (default=10000) specifies the minimum delay between session "saves", in milliseconds. I haven't looked at the current code, but the original code (linked within above article) actually does set timers to postpone writes to the specified interval.

Obviously, a shorter interval means the Session Store functionality will write more often (based on any change to the browser window's contents). Perhaps less obvious, a longer interval doesn't mean that will gather up all the data that it could've written in smaller chunks and write it all out at once. The amount of data written at each interval is based on how many windows have changed since the last save and how complex the changed windows are (number of tabs, etc.), regardless of how many times they've changed during the interval.

So, it would theoretically be possible to find an interval that optimizes your individual preference for restorability (i.e., any browsing changes made during the interval are lost) against the write-performance of your drive.
