How to temporarily disable restore previous session
I have FF configured to restore previous sessions, but from time to time, I go to a web page that locks up FF. I force FF to exit, then I want to start FF with only the home page tab. Is there a command line option to do this?

Additional System Details
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:66.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/66.0
A way out of a trap page is to (force it if needed) Close Firefox. Wait about 20 seconds for Firefox to finish closing. Right-click on the Firefox icon and select Open New Window. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Sometimes this works. If it opens, close it by Menu > File > Exit. This will flush out that web page from the Session Store.
You can set this pref to 0 to always show the Session Restore page in case of a crash or when you use the Windows Task Manager to force a shutdown.
- browser.sessionstore.max_resumed_crashes = 0
You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can accept the warning and click "I accept the risk!" to continue.
