Comment 1 Jan Horak 2016-09-29 10:52:19 UTC
If you mean a tab named "New Tab" (ie. without any loaded page) we can't do much about it. Last tabs are restored from profile_dir/sessionstore-backup/previous.js file where the "New Tab" string is stored along with tab url. That makes loading list of last opened tabs very fast. 

The downside is there does not do any translation during loading, but since frequent changing language for one's profile is minor use case therefore checking language changes each time Firefox is launched and rebuild tabs list would be making things slow, thus closing as won't fix.

If you meant different issue, please reopen and elaborate with more detail.
