Save / change last accessed urls in IE/Chrome/Mozilla browsers tabs for next launch


In my current Firefox Mozilla browser, I just need to access whichever urls / sites
I want to be saved for next browsing session & upon exit & I next relaunch my
Firefox, it will launch these very same urls / sites in each tabs (ie the very same
sessions last accessed will be restored).

 If I don't want to save a particular url/website anymore, I just to exit/close that
url/tab & when I exit Firefox that url/site will not be saved or if I wish to add an
additional url to be saved, just open that url/site & exit Firefox & it will be saved.

Q1:
However, for my IE8, it's always the same 3 sites (eg: abc.abc.com & def.def.com)
that show up in the tab regardless of which is my last accessed url/websites.
How do I change them & to save last accessed url/pages for next session?

Q2:
For my Chrome, it just loses everything & only launch one tab, ie the homepage.
How do I change my Chrome's behaviour to that of what's my Firefox's?

Well the question has been sitting here for almost 4 hours without a response, so I guess its time someone gives you the bad news.

Not all browsers have the same features.  If you look hard enough maybe there are addons or plugins somewhere.

Otherwise you are out of luck unless you want to rewrite some of the code for those other browsers to add the features you want.

For IE8, I'm sure there's a way to set the "initial" tabs to access which url/website:
I must have set it long ago but can't figure out now how those were set.  At least
give me this answer

I no longer have an IE8 around.  I keep the latest IE for testing purposes.  I never use it otherwise.  However I don't recall it having the kind of tab management you are looking for, and as no other Expert has ventured into the question I suspect there is no hack or workaround to do it.

Chrome
In the Options' dialog Basics area, under "Open the following pages," enter the URLs.
Open the last session's tabs automatically. Also like Firefox, Chrome can automatically restore the tabs from your last browser session. In that same Options area as above, just select "Restore the pages that were open last."

the only thing i can think of is you might have your chrome set to clear your history when you close the browser? that might keep it from working right.
