if you overclock (or don't) and your computer freezes while you're using firefox, don't "restore session" when it gives you that option when you restart firefox after restarting your computer, "start new session" instead...

the one time I "restored" my firefox session, all of my bookmarks were gone, the last 4 times that it has happened I started a new session and my bookmarks were still there each time...

might work for ya, it has for me...

Especially if you have important stuff in there that you want to keep.

Backing up bookmarks takes 2 seconds.
