FF > prefs > General > Don't load Tabs until selected.

BarTab had a host of useful features of which *one* was lazy loading of tabs upon restart. Firefox does not have (and the developers do not want to add) the other features.
Where is the option to unload tabs after they have been idle for $TIMEFRAME?
Where's the option to lazy-load background tabs?
Where's the option to skip unloaded tabs when choosing the next tab after a tab is closed?
I repeat: still no replacement for BarTab. I'll stick with older Firefox.
