I do end up power-cycling my computer; I tend not to leave it on when I 
put in a ventilation- and rain-proof bag to tke it somewhere.

When I power it up and start the browser, it offers to restat the tabs 
that were open when it lost control during the power down.  I get to 
choose which ones.  It's meant as a crash-recovery mechanism, but has 
other uses.

This is quite useful, and can lead to tabs accumulating longterm.

If I actually explicitly shut down the browser, it does not rememmber 
all the open tabs.

I could use more RAM.  But my 32-bit system won't take more than 2GiB.
