First off, I'm running Lion on my computer. So every time I open Safari in the last month or so, it always opens up to the same two pages: Macrumors, and some Netflix movie page I looked at once. No matter how many times I close these two pages, navigate away from them, close them and start with a completely new window, when I quit Safari, it's always them that open up. It completely disregards what I had open before (its supposed to open up to the pages I was last on when I quit). I know its not because they are set to my homepage. I have facebook set as that, and I just checked, so it's not like these two somehow got in there. I don't know what the deal is here, but it's starting to bother me. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hold down the option key when Quitting Safari or the shift key when launching it to "discard" previously opened windows.

    Tried it. When I do just the option one, it quits and all but the same pages open again. The shift bit works, but when I quit from that and open Safari again, it goes right back to those two pages...

    Even just tried resetting Safari. Didn't work.

    Don't know what to say.

    Since the shift key at launch works I would use it until a fix comes along.

    Back up all data.

    Triple-click the line below to select it:

    ~/Library/Saved Application State/com.apple.Safari.savedState

    Right-click or control-click the highlighted line and select

    Services Reveal

    from the contextual menu. A Finder window should open with an item selected. Quit the application if it's running. Move the selected item to the Desktop, leaving the window open. Relaunch the application and test. If there's no change, quit again and put the item you moved back where it was, overwriting the one that may have been created in its place. Otherwise, delete the item you moved.
