I cannot get Google Chrome to open the pages I want upon startup.

I go to Options> Basics> select the 'Open the following Pages' radio button and add the webpages I want, but upon starting Chrome up, the only thing that matters is what is selected under the next section under Basics> Homepage.

If I select 'Use the New Tab page', I get the new tab page upon opening Chrome.
If I select: 'Open this page', I get the one webpage I enter there upon opening Chrome.

How do I get Chrome to pay attention to the 'Open the following Pages' setting?
This is a small thing, but it's driving me nuts! IE had this stuff nailed what, a decade ago???

You've been tricked.

Try this...
Select "Open the Home page" in "On startup"
Then  Select "Open this page" and type the site name

That solution is fine for opening one specific site on startup. I want to open multiple sites/tabs on startup. I tried using 'Open this Page' and adding multiple URLs with semicolon dividers, but that fails.

Can you post a screenshot.

;;; are semicolons.

This is the version of Chrome I'm running: 10.0.648.204 (Official Build 79063)

Screenshot of my settings is attached.

When I open Chrome now, I get a New Tabs page.

Came home to find that Chrome wanted a restart to apply an update. Once the update was applied, the problem disappeared. Google fixed it!
