True.  The problem Oki describes is real, though: I don't believe
there's any way to "save" without closing mozilla.  This means that some
data (the bookmarks) can't be saved without losing other data (the
"state" of the session: open tabs, "back" and "forward" history, etc.)

I'd say this would be an appropriate issue to file in bugzilla (if it's
not already there, of course).
