    Smile Problem in Ubuntu 10.04 about login


    Hi,

    I am new here. I have a problem. I am using ubuntu 10.04. Recently every time I log into the system, it will automatically open some directories and open firefox with some historical tabs. I think it might have some problems about the login shell but I do not know how to solve this.

    Looking forward for your help.

    Thanks

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    1) Gnome (I assume you are using Gnome) will try to remember open applications, and reopen them where you left them when you logged out and/or restarted the system.
    2) Firefox (and Chrome) will remember the web sites you had opened the last time, and will place you back in the same context when you restart them. That is a useful feature that I rely upon all the time.

    In any case, this has nothing to do with the login shell. You might be able to change the configuration settings for Gnome and FF to start from a tabula rasa, but that is an exercise for you to deal with...
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    Hello and Welcome!

    You might be able to change that behavior in your System Settings of in your Preferences.
    I haven't used Gnome in quite sometime, but I do remember running across those settings.

    I might have found the reason. In the Startup Application, I click the 'remember currently running application' button...

    Thank you guys for your kind help!

    Like I said... not a Gnome or Ubuntu guy...
    But what about looking through your settings for Startup Applications?
    Anything there?

    I said in #4. I clicked the 'remember currently running application' in Startup Application by accident.
    Now I close all the directories and other applications, and then click this button again. so the problem
    is solved.
