    Is there a way to get Dolphin HD to save your options when you Exit it, rather than have to select Minimize, Exit or Cancel each time?

    Ah ok so not just me. Another thing i thought of. What's even the difference between exit and minimize. It seems obvious at first, but whichever one i do the browser is still running.

    exit closes the tabs that are open i think, minimize keeps them.

    Resurrecting on old topic can often be a wrong choice....
    However, as there wasn't any answers found I'll use this topic rather than start a new one.

    So.... is there any way around this question.
    Can we now save our opened bookmarks as 'Save on Exit' so that re-starting Dolphin would reload all the previously opened Apps?

    I am talking of re-starting Dolphin and not simply opening from a minimum state of operation.

    For the exit settings, on Dolphin, go to Menu>More>Settngs>Dolphin Settings>Exit Settings. Set your preferences there, then uncheck "Confirm when exiting"

    In those settings you can:-
    Clear Cache
    Clear History
    Clear Cookie
    Confirm when exiting

    With the exception of the last one 'Confirm when exiting' I have all unticked.
    This still however clears any opened Tabs.
    As such when you next click on the Dolphin shortcut all it opens is the Home Page, not the other previously opened Tabs.

    I was actually answering the previous posts, as for your question I dont know if its possible as of course not even PC browsers can do that automatically AFAIK, you'd have to save the sessions via a session manager program. You might want to try looking at Dolphin HD extensions that work like session buddy extension on Chrome?

    Yes it is possible on a PC. I do it all the time with Firefox.
    You close the main window and up pops a box asking if you want to save your tabs.
    You simply select save and the next time you open your browser it opens all your previously opened tabs.

    As to the extensions ~ No, there's nothing available.

    Yeah thats what I meant, you save the session. I do it on Chrome and Opera as well, but as I said, its not automatic and you have to save it, which is not available by default on Dolphin.

    Ahh.... we're talking at cross-threads.
    Yes, that's basically what I was hoping Dolphin had now started to do or if there were an App/option to save all open tabs.

    Well.... back to the drawing board I suppose.
