I wonder how this will work with Ubuntu's release versioning. It used to be that an Ubuntu release would fix the major and minor versions of Firefox (along with everything else on the system), so e.g. Maverick will always have Firefox 3.6. Natty shipped with Firefox 4, but will automatically update you to 5. I wonder what the cutoff will be. Oneiric is coming along nicely (at least the Kubuntu daily builds that I've been playing with), so it wouldn't surprise me if Natty will stay with version 5.

I think I read that the Ubuntu guys decided that keeping browsers up to date was a good thing, so this isn't such an issue any more.

I like to keep my previously opened tabs saved so that when Firefox opens they are all still there and I don't have to manually do it. However, Firefox hates it and takes bloody ages to load everything, along with much hard drive thrashing. It's only around 7-8 tabs as well.

This is generally only a problem for a few minutes in the morning but still, it eats into my internet pictures time while eating my breakfast

I previously had an addon that would only load tabs when I clicked on them for the first time, which greatly reduced this problem but it stopped working at some point and I've forgotten what it is anyway. Anything else that does this?

Set browser.sessionstore.max_concurrent_tabs to 0.

My god. It's beautiful.

Thanks.
