If you need to close Mozilla Firefox but don't want to lose all your open tabs, there are a couple of ways to save them. One little-known feature of Firefox is the ability to bookmark all open tabs into a separate folder, which allows you to easily re-open them later. However, some people do not want to clutter up their bookmarks with extra folders, in which case you can force a crash in Firefox that will automatically save your open tabs.
