Yes, it is a bad habit. Yes, I can stop anytime ... umm Ctrl-T. :-)

I never bothered to have all the tabs visible. They scroll when there is
more of them on the screen. Normally this is one window only (the "read
later" window).

What I use is session manager (a life saver to open what I was in last time,
whether it is a crash or need to reboot because of a new kernel, ..etc.) and
NoScript, which stops javascript and Flash on most sites. Those two are the
reason Firefox uses so much CPU. Without NoScript,Firefox becomes very slow
with so many tabs opened most of them with ads dancing around.
