Auto update Restore Session Error

Hi,
Firefox is setup to auto update when it launches. It has to be force closed remotely to startup the update because some user don't close their browsers.
However, after the browser opens, it shows an error and prompts the user to restore the last session because taskkill is used to terminate the process.


Is there a way to:
1. Toggle "browser.sessionstore.resume_session_once" to "true" so, it will restore automatically via script or command line.
2. Terminate Firefox gracefully, so it doesn't show that message and session is restore upon reopening.
3. Any other way (but, without using user.js and/or prefs.js)

The only command pushed to the user's machine is to terminate and reopen Firefox.
Thanks

You can set up the Windows Task Scheduler and run a batch program.

In the computer, add this file: Close Firefox.bat


Cls
TASKKILL /IM Firefox.exe /t
::Above close FF normally
TASKKILL /IM Firefox.exe /t /F
::Above FORCE FF to close

You might also be able to set this up to call the batch program remotely. Be sure to test it out for your system.

I took a look at the Mozilla Add-ons Web Page {web link} (There’s a lot of good stuff here) but did not see anything helpful.

Thanks FredMcD It's asking to confirm if I want to close multiple tabs. Is there a way to send "enter" key through batch file say yes?

Thanks

Maybe check the sessionCheckpoints.json file in the Firefox profile folder.

Firefox has a safe guard in case the user closes a window with tabs.

Type about:config<enter> in the address bar. If a warning screen comes up, press the Be Careful button. At the top of the screen is a search bar. Type browser.tabs.warnOnClose then change this to False.


Note: I found this, but can't find any information about it; browser.tabs.remote.desktopbehavior
