Today one bad web page took out 30+ open windows... While I hope that specific bug can be tackled, there will be others that hit me or other people. Why not reduce the pain with this general idea? 1) Once a minute write a list of open web page in windows and tabs into ~/.mozilla/firefox/PROFILE_DIR/CrashRecovery/DATETIME.html. A timestamp at the top, and simple indented list (title of winow, and URL shown since titles aren't always meaningful). Skip if no new windows opened. 2) If firefox is exiting cleanly, delete the file on the way out. 3) If a file exists in the CrashRecovery directory when Firefox is starting, offer the list of files in the directory, and a chance to do the following for any file: -- Open the list of pages as a single HMTL file, so each required page can be opened via a click. Default option. -- Open the list of pages again, in a window set as before. Resource heavy, and may trigger same problem, so make this the second option. -- Delete the particular CrashRecovery file I will be offering a reward for an implementation of this or a comparable crash recovery scheme, in addition to making a long overdue donation to the Mozilla project...
