|Normally, when you close IE7, you have the option of selecting if you want to re-open with the same tabs.|
What happens if IE7 locks up/hangs and you have to either kill the process with the Task Manager or close the application altogether? In Vista you do not get asked if you want to re-open with the same tabs the way you do if you were to close it normally without the lock up.
In Vista you have three options when it locks up and you want to close it.
Restart the program
Close the program
Wait for the program to respond
When you restart the program, Vista kills the process then re-opens it but does not include all the previous tabs prior to the hang.
There are some sites will reload with a completely new page if they get updated by the minute so I don't get the same page if it is one of the tabs of my start page.
How do I recover the exact tab I had prior to the hang? Looking in the History folder does nothing because it's not browser history. It's Computer history. Looking in Temporary Internet Files only shows cookies.
I generally like Vista but this is one annoying 'feature'. At least in XP you can find all your browser history for the last few weeks in a folder called 'History'. Why is Vista storing Computer history but not browser history? And if I can recover browser history where can I find it? Opening a new IE7 Browser Session isn't the answer because while I can find all the old history for static pages, the same rules do not apply to dynamic pages that are updated every few seconds to minutes.
I'm guessing there's no way to do it.
