    Then when you start it next time, it will load fast and not take long time and freeze the browser like it used to!

      This is new in Firefox 13 or it was there before?

        Speaking about the tabs, google chrome's implementation of tabs as different processes seem to be superior to mozilla's tab implementation. Switching between tabs work smoothly in chrome but gets slow and sluggish in firefox when multiple of them are running. Closing a tab in chrome is as fast as killing a process but in firefox it has a noticeable delay. As for the rendering of pages two browsers seem to be identical in speed though.

          It's there in Firefox 12 for me on this box and in Firefox 10 on another box.

            This is a known problem and is being worked on.

            some fixes already in Firefox 15: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=743877

            If you have many tabs open, timeouts from background tabs can cause slowdowns.
            1 possible solution: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=715376

            An experimental extension to kill off all background activity:
            https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...ckground-tabs/

            And there is ongoing work to try and run the UI in a separate thread from the webpage contents, which would fix it.

            Taras's blog is a good place to find out what they are doing about these performance issues.

              About time... Why wasn't this the default? I always wondered. I started doing this with BarTab back in Firefox 3, and the about:config tweak to achieve the same afterwards.

              I currently happen to use the excellent Tree Style Tab addon, which moves them to the left or right vertically, and nests them too. With so many tabs i'm sarting to find bookmarks obsolete already ^^
