I cannot reproduce the problem... I can create tabs "Gah, Your tab is crashed" but there are not closed by the add-on.

Can you give me the options set? and the Firefox version?

Further explaination;
Link after search: (keeps unchanged, only page content changes)

Thanks for the report, I need to provide the whitelist feature for this kind of issue.

I would like to report kinda bug (more like unwanted behaviour).

This will happen only if you have auto-close duplicate enabled.

Problem is when multiple/all tabs crashes auto-close will close all "Do you want to restore this tab" pages and leave you with no option to restore tabs (unless you CTRL+SHIFT+T). Your extension is awesome and saves me a lot of time thanks a lot!

yeah i found this too
when you use tab restore option (tab mix plus option) to auto restore when browser crash
with auto-close duplicate enabled when open browser after crashed
this will automatic close all tab and cant restore all tab
must disable this add-on and restore last crash tab then enable this add-on again
hope you fix this

I'm not sure it's the same kind of problem, anyway I'll make some test to understand the cause.

I've found the problem about the crashed tabs (and probably with the restore session).
I'll push a new version as soon as possible.

On your response to my review.

Remembering the state of "Options" seems to be a good idea. I guess that the "Options" themselves could be renamed to "Filters", but it is not really important.
What about moving the "Remove" button above the "Options"?

Thank you for this great extension anyway.

It would be nice if I could define a custom string by regular expression that is ignored during comparison of tabs. This would give users much more power than your current "Filters" options.

Thank you for this extension.

Is there a way to prevent pinned tabs from being closed please? I find that sometimes I end up with duplicate tabs, one of which is a pinned tab, which I want to retain but because the pinned tab is older it gets closed.

Can we get a white-list, please?

Sometimes need to have few new (empty) tabs opened, to visually separate groups of tabs, but its impossible...
Or when i have really many tabs opened and want to open new tab it wont open cuz i have allready it opened somwhere at the beginning of the list,
and then i must to scroll through the list of all the tabs at the beginning, look for the old "new tab" and close it manually so then i can open a new one at the end of the list... A little uncomfortable...

"White-list" function or "Ignore empty tabs" option would be useful and convenient,.. or at least it would not prevent anyone =).
