There are a few that do the tabbed saving stuff.  I used to use
"sessionsaver" but have since moved to using "Google Browser Sync" which
gives me the functionality that the old Netscape Roaming Profiles gave
me (sync bookmarks, preferences, etc between multiple computers).

There is one caled "Restart Tabbed" that will restart firefox and save
your tabs, all in one.  If you're like me and have something else
managing your tabs, you might try "Restart Firefox," but it doesn't seem
to work with the current version of Firefox.

All but the Google Browser Sync extention can be found on the
addons.mozilla.org site.
