Keep in mind that if Firefox exits between 'do not restore session' and
'allow sessions to restart', all the tabs may vanish into the ether.  Been
burned by that before.   May want to tar up your .mozilla directory for
safe keeping (or whatever needs to be done on boxes where tar'ing up
a directory isn't a thing....)
