Since I installed Lion on my mac book pro; Safari has this annoying habit of popping up windows of past sites I have visited during previous sessions. All I want is to have Safari only put up pages of the home page or the url link I double clicked on.
I looked at prefs and cleared history.
Any help?
thanks

In Lion there is option to disable restore windows when quitting and re-opening apps?

You can find it in System Preferences -> General, bottom of the preference pane - just note that it will disable this system wide (for all apps).

After reviewing the thread (link above) that has four pages of solutions, it appears LION has a global feature that remembers all windows an app has open when you are quitting the app. Upon restarting the app (in my case Safari), all windows that were open when quitting open again!

I did the prefs panel solution to stop safari reopening past history windows.

thanks
