Stop Safari in OSX 10 Lion reloading webpages from last browsing session.
Posted on 2012-03-14
OK, I know this issue with Safari and Lion is out there in the tech forums like a weed. Everybody and his brother is complaining about this. But I figure if I'm going to find a solution anywhere, it has to be here!
THE ISSUE: Safari ver.5 (and, I think ver. 4 too) running on OSX 10 Lion has this annoying feature: it reloads all webpages, tabbed, from the last session of web browsing, instead of your chosen homepage.
In effect, you can't ever actually get an automatic session-start beginning with the homepage you've lovingly specified in Safari/Prefs/General.
I've tried countless solutions offered on other Tech Forums; none of them work. Viz: close each session of Safari holding down Command/Option/Q; manually close all open tabs before finishing a session of Safari; there are a couple of Terminal scripts out there supposedly fixing the issue. They don't. And I vaguely recall a few other lame "solutions" that didn't work either.
Any bright ideas here? I can't believe Apple did this... it is SO annoying - and useless too!
