This feature works great for me on FF8. I use tons of tabs, tab groups and windows.

All of my Windows use between 100 and 200 tabs; some even more, but then it takes too long to load, slows my browser down too much, and the browser occasionally crashes. This feature has helped me out a great deal.

At first, my browser didn’t show the general tab–I don’t know why, but maybe because I was trying to open the options box while FF8 was crazy busy trying to load 160 or so tabs. I closed the window, and reopened the window. I let all the tabs to open before trying to access my options. Now it works great.
