Firefox saves the page to disk and reloads it from there when restarting. If the page has changed, could it be updated? Its a real pain to have to go through 5 tabs and reload them after opening the browser and waiting for them to render. Or at least have the option to reload them from server in Options/Preferences

I assume you're talking about session restore from your description, you _could_ right-click (or option-click, or whatever it is on mac) any tab and hit reload all tabs.

True. Didn't see that. Still, would be nice.

This is most probably WONTFIX, as we really don't want to bother people with having to wait for pages to load if we can fetch them from the cache nor with having to select one of several ways to restore their session.

Yeah, this is WONTFIX.  If sites are changing, but setting cache expiration so stuff doesn't get loaded fresh when it should, they should fix that.  Loading everything from the network regardless of cache just doesn't make sense in the general case.
