No matter how I close FireFox, when I reopen it goes to restore session. How do I stop that?

I wound up uninstalling and reinstalling FireFox. That's the only thing that worked.

First, check this setting: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-to-set-the-home-page


If the browser crashed or did not close properlly, it will restore the last session. This is how the browser is set up.

Make sure you close the browser using; Windows: Menu > File > Exit Mac: Menu > Firefox > Quit Firefox Linux: Menu > File > Quit

Some users have reported issues when closing the browser using the X upper-right of the window.

You may have corrupt sessionstore [v56] sessionstore.jsonlz4 file(s). Delete all sessionstore* files and the sessionstore-backups folder.

Don't delete the files if you need to rescue any data from them, just move them out of the profile folder to some location where Firefox doesn't look for them. You can try to read out their contents using this tool: https://www.jeffersonscher.com/res/scrounger.html

Can't find any sessionstore files. Using windows 8.1. Where would they be? Also, there is no page logo on the left side. Can you be more specific?

I deleted the sessinstore backup folder. There were no other sessionstore files. I moved the sessionCheckpoints.json file to the desktop. Got out of Firefox and restarted it. Still opened to session restore

That was very good work. Well Done. Please flag your last post as Solved Problem as this can help others with similar problems. Go to that post and click the 'Solved' button to its right.

It is odd the problem was fixed by a re-install. But, whatever works. Note: Firefox v97 just came out.

Update...the restore session nonsense is back again! If Mozilla doesn't fix this I'm going to have to move to a different browser.
