How do I stop Firefox from ever restoring any websites at launch?
When I launch Firefox it sometimes restores the website I was looking at when I last used Firefox. I want Firefox to never do this. As in n e v e r (not yelling, just emphatic ;^). (If I want to look at what I previously looked at, that is't History is for.) Thank you.

Type about:preferences#general<enter> in the address bar.
There are two settings;
- When Firefox Starts
When the browser is started, what do you want to display. Many of us choose Show My Home Page.
- Home Page
When a new page is opened, what do you want displayed.
- Use Current Page. Use what ever page(s) are open at that time.
- Use Bookmark
- Restore To Default. about:home shows a Mozilla home page with tools.
You can use any of these that you wish;
about:home (Firefox default home page), about:newtab (shows the sites most visited), about:blank (a blank page),
or you can enter any web page or about: page you want.
