Mozilla Firefox: Tips and Tricks Make Firefox load faster with BarTab

If you like to keep hundreds of tabs open, restoring a Firefox session after a browser / system update / restart / crash is sure to be a painfully long wait. Often you don't even need all the tabs that open up immediately.

With BarTab you can have Firefox load a tab only when you actually visit it. This not only makes your browser startup faster, but also saves on memory as content for unused tabs not loaded in memory till required.

Additionally, you can change Firefox's behaviour such that it will not load tabs opened in the background (Ctrl + Click or middle-click) automatically, but only on visiting them. It can also automatically unload background tabs if you don't visit them for a while.
