    whenever you are posting, commenting, googling...

    if you accidentally closed the tab, or browser crashes (hope not :) ), restore the tab, session, all the text entries are preserved. save massive amount of time and energy.

    I suspect firefox 3.0.x does this to certain degree as well, but not sure, somebody can check it out for me since I dont have it anymore.

    Probably the private data preferences are different in 3.5 than in 3.x

    Just looked and compared the two, the addition of the private browsing checkbox, sort of broke all the private data into more chunks.

    As far as restoring all the windows and such if the browser crashes, it also happened in 3.0 -- and when you quit it asks you if you want to save the tabs.

    Edit: as for saving text, FF3 never really crashed enough for me to notice if the text I'd been typing was saved.

    i did the test by typing into a text field then close the tab, reopen the tab.

    and typing into a text field, then force quit firefox from activity monitor, then reopen firefox.
