How To Disable Click To Load Tabs In Firefox

Web browsers can automatically open the last tabs you were browsing. You have to change your browser's start settings to enable this feature. If you've set your browser to always open a specific website i.e. your home page, or you've set it to always open a blank tab, the browser will not load tabs from your previous session. Both Firefox and Chrome support this session restore feature but Firefox adds something extra. If you've set Firefox to open tabs from your previous session, it will do so. It will, however, not load the tabs until you actually visit them. Firefox does this to prevent slow startup. It's better to load just the one tab you want to use right away and postpone the others until you visit them. This feature is called click to load tabs. Here's how you can disable click to load tabs in Firefox. Read More
