> If I wanted new windows I wouldn't use tabs. I wouldn't put it that way. I like to have a window per "subject", containing 1 tabs per site related to that subject (i.e. my "Mozilla news" bookmark group opens mozilla.org/Mozillazine/Mozillanews/Bonsai Watch/Burning Edge). I find it more convenient to open my "80s music" bookmark group in another windows. However, I always found annoying that clicking on a bookmarked group of 3 pages in a new window ends up with 4 tabs (homepage + 3 new) and I agree that systematically throwing all previous contents away in one click is a bit harsh. This is made worse by the fact that there is no "Back" or "Undo" functionality. The only solution to find previous contents back is to browse through history, which can be painful if some tabs are open for a long time So I agree that this should be made a preference. Maybe 3 options would be the best : Keep previous tabs/Throw away all previous tabs/Throw away only "Homepage" tabs. I'd choose the latter.
