Hey all -

How come when I quit safari, then re-open it, it takes me to the last page I visited, instead of my homepage?

Thanks,

Go to: preferenced --> general in your safari menu. there you can enter your homepage. if you did that already then you can say where safari should go - same tab "new window opens with..."

Thanks for the answer, but it does not seem to be working. If quit safari right now, when I reopen it, it goes directly to the last page I visited. Any other suggestions?

Thanks,
Hwilensky

Here's the problem. You have "Resume" turned on in your System Preferences (not Safari preferences, as illogical as that may sound) under General:



This "restore" would have also worked in applications like Pages for example.
