Brilliant features. Very familiar to Opera users ;)

Do a search for "undoclosetab" and "sessionsaver". These are extensions that do this from a long time.

One thing that really bothers me in firefox is the fact that you cannot use the CTRL F - Find command to search for things inside a box or frame. For example if you use Yahoo Notebook you would not be able to search inside an open notepad like you can with IE. I am not sure why this does not work in Firefox but it does work in IE.

Well, I don't know what Yahoo Notebook is, but my ctrl-f works just fine in Firefox.

I use it constantly! ;)
