Mozilla allows you to bookmark groups and open several pages at once.
Perhaps we need a way to create a launcher which launches more than one
program?  (I guess you could do that using a script.)

Alternatively you could either set those programs to automatically
start every session, or more easily save your session on logout so it
comes back up the same when you login.  I've done similar things this way
in the past.
