I use Internet Explorer for really one reason - it's somewhat compatible with my customer's backend exchange system. So, I find myself on any given day having numerous tabs open. It's a set of working thoughts - you know how this goes. This morning, I had something like 14 tabs open, all various searches, things I wanted to read, things I needed to read, working email..

Windows pushes out an update, and I get a popup "May I reboot?" just as I'm hitting a return in my email. Yup, flushed. Now, here's my bitch. IE only remembers the last window it closed. So, W7 closes down the browser and the last window closed is some meaningless popup.

Coming back to IE, if I want to reopen the last session, I get the meaningless popup.Mad | :mad:

I have searched over the years for extensions and what have you that will automatically remember the tabs in a fashion like Firebird or Opera?
