    [EDIT]
    1 silly thing I found in this new release! They hv attached the GO button with the Search box, so when we rearrange the search box, the GO button is also carried with it leaving Address Bar alone! :D it looks quite Buggy...

    Hey guys!
    Just today I checked for updates in my Bon Echo Beta 1 and it showed an update available! I installed it and when the browser restarted, its showing Bon echo Beta 2. :)

    It means ff 2 Beta 2 is out. but I didnt find it anywhere and even not on Mozilla FTP.

    You are correct, a second beta is there and officially supposed to be releasing on August 23, and the final release is said to be coming on October 24.

    There is no setting for it but in case ur ff crashes, it'll automatically restore the last session upon next start. :)

    Arre, session saver saves your open tabs on a crash or if you want it to. And on next open it restores em. Like opera ofcourse. Has nothing so specific to crashes to be named thus.
