I have a firefox extension that lets me restart firefox from the menu.  I
have a firefox extension that restores all my tabs when firefox starts
back up.  If I had the time and knowledge I'd write an extension that
would activate the former either once a day or when my system was
idle (detect screensaver or monitor sleep?  I dunno)

Yes, this is a half-assed solution to fix a problem that should have been fixed
by now.  *grumble*
