Hi. Firefox does bring up a session restore as I prefer -- however, it ALSO always now brings up 3 other tabs (listed above). I've refreshed FF and also cleared Everything in search history, but still the same problem. Help?

Ah! Solved. I created the problem; it was I who must solve it. I had come across a website about bastardized shortcuts in FF where a screen shot showed someone had left in the homepage FF address but also typed in "remove anything else." I figured I'd need to type that part in also, so did. Only today did I realize that had split itself into three different tabs bearing nonexistent webpages, i.e., "<"; ask; and">. Solution uninstall -- reinstall.

Note that Firefox supports multiple home pages separated by '|' (pipe) symbols. If there is an URL that contains such a pipe symbol then it needs to be escaped as %7c
