    Thanks for posting this. I forced a Firefox crash a few times (using the crashme addon with "xpinstall.signatures.required", false) and got a Restore Session page. Image:RestoreSession-fx45

    Clicking the Restore button restores the last session. Clicking Close starts a new session. I made a new revision that's pending review.
