    Can I open a series of tabs when I first run the programme, rather than it opening my home page and then me selecting "My Tabs" from the bookmarks?
    Thanks Paul :)

    Fill in the home page box, using | to separate the pages you want.

    Look for a FF extention called Tab Mix Plus. It adds more control over the tabs in FF and it also has a session manager. It automatically saves all your open tabs in the event you close FF or suffer a crash/unexpected restart. When you open FF again it asks if you would like to restore your session. Clicking yes reloads all your tabs as you left them.

    I haven't looked back from using this and its the first extention I install whenever I have to install FF on a computer.

    SessionSaver will do the same.

    It should kick in and ask if you want to clear the session if it's crashing. A system of restoring sessions if Firefox crashes is appearing in FF 2.0.

    In Tab Mix Plus you're asked if you want to restore thus avoiding a nasty crash cycle lol. Dont know about SessionSaver though!
