about:blank tab always opened at start

Post by Dreamer » Fri Apr 10, 2009 1:15 am

about:blank tab is always opened at start (with other, saved tabs). Option "Open home page when Orca starts" is disabled.

Is there a way to disable the about:blank tab at start? Perhaps on about:config page?

It's probably because you are using OrcaXtra - it forces that page (it can be any page actually) to open so the the multiple instances hack can initialise the engine to work correctly.

Oh, thanks. Can I change it - when I set any page to open at start, or you'd have to change it in OrcaXtra, or perhaps as the (next) parameter? What about open that page and then close it, somehow??

Currently it is hardcoded. I am investigating a way to open then close a dummy page, but have not found a solution yet.

It's a tool for the portable version - to be able to start more instances, from more folders, at the same time. It's not available yet. If you'd like to test it, try to contact kudos (author of OrcaXtra). More here.
