But u can make it better by including the following facilities. 1. Firefox needs (more) time to load on older systems compared to IE. But once it is loaded it is unbeatable. I use Firefox in my Computer Education Institute for Internet Training to my students with AMD 500 Mhz systems. The problem here is, when a student double clicks Firefox Icon, he will not know that It is already being loaded. Hence Again he double cliks the icon, to load a second instance of Firefox which increases the time needed to load. Some times they keep on clicking Firefox icon until they see around 10 to 12 instances(windows) of Firefox poping up simoltaniously on the screen. This problem can be solved by displaying a Flash screen(Which displays firefox logo and a loading message), immediately after the first time he double cliks the firefox icon. It is very help ful for people like me, who use older systems. [May be you can give an option to disable it on Faster Systems.] 2. Some times Firefox crashes due to various reasons ( IE is NOT an exception ). If the crash happens when we are using several windows for surfing simoltainiously, the user will not know where he was, when firefox crashed. I request you to add a feature which automatically stores the current url locations of all firefox windows into a text file on desktop on firefox crash, which can be used by user to directly move to previous url location without delay. This will be a great help for every one. hope my suggestions will be considered for inclusion. thank you Raghavendra. H. I. STAR Computers. Sagar. Karnataka. India. Reproducible: Always

You may find that you are asked to ensure one bug/request only per report in Bugzilla.
I think suggestion 1 is not wanted by the Firefox developers, see bug 198605 comment 11 and bug 198605 comment 12. Suggestion 2 is already requested in bug 19454, bug 36810 and other bugs, maybe you could try something like the SessionSaver extension from update.mozilla.org, see https://addons.update.mozilla.org/extensions/moreinfo.php?application=firefox&version=1.0&os=Windows&category=Tabbed%20Browsing&numpg=10&id=436.
One issue per bug please. The 2 issues you mentioned have already been reported. Marking this one as a duplicate of the first issue. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 198605 ***
