I am not the one asking for help. Also, I don't have the Comcast toolbar or
any other third party toolbar for that matter. I am also not having any
problms with my browser. But thank you anyway for your response.
I was offering helpful information that may or may not solve the Ops
I respectully disagree with your assumption that disabling this feature will
cause a loop or any other problem with one's ability to browse.
The following link, I believe supports my theory that it is only a
convenient addition that helps people recover webpages they visit in the
event of a browser crash or sudden browser shutdown much like the same
feature first offered in Firefox:
Click or paste it into your browser and you will see that it offers no
warning of, "putting the browser into a loop that [one] can't get out of
without a machine reboot."
It is doubtful that since this is in the "Browsing" section under the
Advanced tab that it is a criticle safety feature. It is there for
convenience so that the browser can recover a lost tab or browser session
after a browser crash or other event that causes the browser to shut down.
If it was a safety feature, then disabling it would not be so easily
accessible or there would be a warning not to disable it.
Also after searching the Internet for other articles or forum posts that may
support your "loop" theory, I have found none. You need to come up with a
better reason like, you tried my suggestion and it didn't help. Or that
disabling the feature won't fix the problem because (insert reliable reason
here other than toolbar/add on incompatiblity or maleware). That would be
All that aside, I have also searched for a better solution than mine and
think I may have found one that I will suggest to the Op. I can humbly thank
you for at least motivating me to seek out a possibly better solution for
