Firefox's selective tab restoration after a crash is a handy feature, but if you're suffering repeated crashes for whatever reason, then being told "Well, this is embarrassing" every single time can get really wearing. Here's how to make it go away.

Firefox 3.5 was officially released late last month, but the Mozilla team has already released its initial Windows theme mockups for Firefox 3.7, featuring glossy, translucent buttons and a host of other potential new features.
Windows/Mac/Linux: Most developers did a bang-up job preparing their extensions for the Firefox 3.5 update, but on the Firefox 3.5 release day, one very popular extension didn't make the cut: Google's browser plug-in, Gears.
Because it needs to be approved, customised and otherwise vetted by the maintainers of Ubuntu Linux's repositories, the just-released Firefox 3.5 isn't officially available on that system. With one terminal command, though, open-sourcers can grab and install a working copy.
Mozilla continues to (benevolently) toy with Firefox fans, making a third Firefox 3.5 Release Candidate available for direct download or updating through the Help->Check for Updates path, while shying away from an official announcement about a final 3.5 release date. The link for 3.5rc3 release notes isn't working at the moment, but we'd presume this is a mostly bug-fixing release. Thanks Ryan!
If the new Geo-locating features in the upcoming Firefox 3.5 release just don't jive with your privacy-conscious self, you can disable them easily with a simple tweak.
