You can set Firefox to save the session on exit, so when you launch the browser again, it opens all tabs and windows from the last time. You can enable this behavior by choosing Edit -> Preferences -> Main and selecting the Show my windows and tabs from last time item from the When Firefox starts drop-down list.

But you probably knew that already. But did you know that you can add a similar feature to OpenOffice.org courtesy of the Last Session extension? This extension is a real boon if you often need to work on several documents at the same time. Using the extension is a no-brainer. When installed, the extension adds a new toolbar containing two buttons: save and Load. Press Save before you quit OpenOffice.org to save the current session, i.e., all the currently opened documents. Next time you launch OpenOffice.org, press the Load button to open all the saved documents.
