Restore Control


If you're like me you tend to have a lot of tabs open at the same time. When it comes time to restore a session with lots of tabs - whether Firefox crashed, it was time to reboot, or a third party entity decided to open a link without your permission - you may not want to wait for all those tabs to load at once.

Take back control any time you restore tabs with Restore Control.
