But I run XFCE desktop because it is less complex, less features on the

I'm reluctant to switch back and forth between KDE and XFCE.
When I've done so in the past ...
Well I have a number of Firefox windows in KDE, each with a large number
of tabs. Every few months I consolidate them down but they grow back.
its like keeping a garden. Firefox is the kudzu.

It is a huge, yes.

When I login using XFCE or LXDE rather than KDE all of a sudden there is
only ONE window when I bring up Firefox. The other one is lost. I
don't know why. When I go back to KDE the lost window is still lost.
I have to be paranoid and take bookmarks of everything!

Well, when I login in xfce I get all my FF windows and tabs. A dozen
windows, perhaps.


I take care that the XFCE session save does not save FF. First I quit
FF, TH, then log out with only the apps I want restarted again, because
XFCE doesn't restore apps in the appropriate workspace.

So, after login, I go to the appropriate workspace and manually start
there the apps that go there. TH in the 2nd, FF in the 3rd... etc.

In my test install of Leap, I have a problem with FF. I place it in the
3rd workspace. When I click on a link in TH in the second workspace, it
brings FF to the second. I know this is a setting, but I have forgotten
