[Mono-list] Security and Firefox 2.0

I wonder if I could pick some brains?


According to the BBC:


"Firefox 2.0 also has an improved session restoration system that will
let users resurrect tabbed webpages they accidentally closed or will
re-start a net session at the point before a crash."


We already have difficulties with tabbed browsers in the sense that if a
user closes a tab, it doesn't close the session so users (and therefore
potentially others if the user leaves the machine unguarded) can jump
back into a session.  Does the feature above mean life is going to be
even more difficult?  Will sessions even be restored if the browser is
closed and re-opened?  This is very important to us, because many of our
applications run on computers in public access areas.  So they do get
left unguarded, and the urls to access the systems are obviously well
known: but they do deal with sensitive information, like disability data


Or is there something in the .NET security model we should be using that
we've missed?
