Details

bug 449734 has landed.
it was suggested there to preserve plugin state also for session restore, to which Mike Shaver replayed in #c22:

"It may be desirable, but it's definitely a different bug than this one, and a
much more challenging one: it requires cooperation from plugins to serialize
and deserialize their state correctly, including references to DOM objects that
will have new addresses in the new process."

hence this bug.
