The pause-on-exceptions option added in bug 757282 should be preserved across debugger sessions.

I'm pretty sure we don't want to do this.

I had a go with it yesterday and starting the debugger on any random page with pause-on-exceptions open is pretty much guaranteed to break the debuggee somewhere inside a minified jquery/random library.

ISTR that other browsers or Firebug did that. Kevin do you think we need this?

Hmm.. on second though, it may be useful to have this option persist. Do we still want to do this? I have a rotten patch.
