Are there any extensions for Firefox that can automatically hibernate or suspend browser tabs (when they haven't been used for a while?) I saw an extension like this a couple of years ago, but I can't remember its name now.

It appears that there is an extension called Tab Mix Plus that does this (by default). It automatically unloads tabs that haven't been used for a while (to free memory), and then allows them to be restored by clicking on them.

Is there any UI to control this feature? I can't see any in Tab Mix Plus –  Matthew Lock Jul 9 at 2:49
