One last tip: If you have several windows open which you would like to have reopened the next time you start Firefox again, click 'Edit', then 'Preferences' in the main menu. Go to the tab 'Main' and select 'Show my windows and tabs from last time'.

If you have several windows opened, do not close each one individually now as they would get lost, but instead click on 'File' and 'Quit' in the main menu of any of your open windows.
