Firefox 'remember tabs'-feature?

I preached some Firefox/Adblock messages over the weekend, and a friend of mine is testing it alongside his current favourite, Opera.

He's asked me this question, and I'm sure there's an answer (but I don't know it):

In Firefox, is there an extension or option that allows it to remember all your tabs between sessions (i.e. opening up all the same tabs that were open when you closed the browser?) like Opera does? I'm using this as a mini to do list at the moment and I've become addicted to the feature
So the challenge goes to anyone in the Spread Firefox-community: surely this exists?

Tabbrowser Extensions will allow you to do everything you ever wanted to do (well, almost everything) with Firefox tabs, including saving them between sessions:

However, lately I've been having a bit of trouble with getting my tabsessions loaded properly at start-up (with FF1.0 preview and the latest Tabbrowser extensions). I'm hoping this will be fixed, at least there are frequent updates to the Tab Extensions.

Undoclosetab (http://extensionroom.mozdev.org/more-info/undoclosetab) might be useful for your friend.

I'd go with Frank on recomending Tabbrowser Extensions as doing what your friend wants (and more)

Tabbrowser for sure is a better choice as it DOES have more features.

If you don't feel like loading extensions, simply hit Ctrl-D and select "Bookmark all tabs in a folder". You'll need to have at least two tabs open for the checkbox to be displayed. Then, when restoring it, peel it out from the bookmarks as normal--there'll be an "Open in tabs" option.
