Windows 7: Can you disable "save last window location" for Firefox?

02 Dec 2012   #11

Windows 7 HP x64

thanks for the profound trying to help me. I appreciate it.
I have no reliable way to reproduce it either (at least when I just tested it), but it happens quite often. I'll try to remember exactly what I did the next time.

A script... mh - would I have to "click" it manually and would it fill my trashbin?

The script would run all of the time - watching and waiting for Firefox to start and then exit.

You can use the script below - you need to change the path to the localstore.rdf file. You do not need to compile the script - but you will need to install AutoIt to make use of it... see the second video in this post and the info below it.

Opt("TrayIconDebug", 1)

While 1
    If ProcessExists("firefox.exe") Then
        ;ProcessWaitClose("firefox.exe") ;uses too much cpu time
        Until Not ProcessExists("firefox.exe")
        $var = FileDelete("C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\25k5i5f4.default\localstore.rdf")
        If Not $var Then MsgBox(48, 'error', 'localstore.rdf was not deleted - chech the path')

Restore the "save or open" dialog window
