How do I save all current tabs in a bookmark folder?

Previous versions of Firefox allowed me to "bookmark all tabs" via a dialog that let me to create a bookmark folder. Version 4 no longer gives me that option. In addition, if I quit Firefox with multiple tabs open, when I next reopened Firefox, those tabs were open (if I quit with only a single tab open, reopening was to my home page). How do I regain this behavior?

Chosen solution

1. right-click on a tab, choose 'Bookmark All Tabs' and choose a folder name & location within the library to save them.

2. type in about:home - this should give you a 'Restore Previous Session' icon which will bring back the last group of tabs open when you closed the browser.

Thank you for the useful answer. This strikes me as an incredibly poor and unintuitive design - needlessly different from FF 3 versions. If you are a developer, could you pass that along? (I'd give direct feedback, but I can't find it right now!)

Thanks, iowaman Your answer was both to the point and prompt. The first change seems to violate the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" axiom. The second change is actually an improvement. Now, you can recover from a previous closing mistake by allowing you to restore the previous session. Once again, however, I wish that it was documented although I admit that I didn't look as hard in the docs for an answer to the second problem as I did for the first.
