The new version will also have the option that lets users restore previous browsing sessions in case it crashes or if it closed unexpectedly. Firefox 8 will let the user restore each tab the person want instead of restoring them at all once which might even slow down the browser. But, by opening it one after the other, it will make the browser works faster the restore.
