Deleted tabs on new version install

I wanted to install a new add-on to my 3.6.10 version and was advised that I needed to download an update to 3.7.0

I had Firefix open with several tabs that I was using. I downloaded the beta 4.0 and it would not install.... saying that Firefox was already running.

I opened Task Manager in my Windows XP SP3 and deleted the running Firefox in 'Processes'. When I have done this before, the next time I restart Firefox, I am asked if I want to reopen the tabs as they were.

This time there was no such question and I am now apparently unable to reopen the several tabs that I was working on and I have lost a great deal of valuable work.

AS an idea for the future... could it be possible to save 'sets' of tabs so that when I am working on a project and skipping between web sites.. I can safe the tab set that I have so that I can reinstate it at another time? This is different from the 'Tools/General setting to reinstate the tabs when the browser is reopened...

I am looking to be able to save different sets.. for instance a 'News' set so that I can open my regular News sites first thing in the morning... then get to work on a particular project by recalling another Set... later I may change projects and it would be great to be able to recall another saved 'Set'.

In the meantime, I remain frustrated.!

My forward and back arrows, recent pages icon, reload current page icon, and stop loading this page icon, are not highlighted and do not work. When I open the history tab these areas are not highlighted and the controls do not work. Also every time I open Firefox a window opens saying that Firefox closed unexpectedly and would I like to restore my previous session, even though it was shut down properly. I have tried to update Firefox on my Asus eee pc running the original Linux, but am unable to.

I am using Linux and want to upgrade my Firefox to version 3.6. I clicked on the link on the Mozilla webpage and it only gave me the option of saving the file, which I did, and the Downloads window opened with 'firefox-3.6.12.tar.bz2' in it. When i click on this to open it, it pops up with the Launch Application window asking which application I want to open it with. I don't know which one I am meant to use..?? It is a BIN file. Also, where will I find the application in my folders/netbook?

getfirefox.com tells me there is a new version available. But when I click the "About" Firefox option, it says it is up to date (7.0.1).

This same issue happens when I go to my Google Apps mail. It tells me I'm using an unsupported version of Firefox. But I'm using the latest version.
