Whenever I start Firefox I get the following message:

"Well, this is embarrassing. Firefox is having trouble recovering your windows and tabs. This is usually caused by a recently opened web page. You can try: "Removing one or more tabs that you think may be causing the problem "Starting an entirely new browsing session"

Problem persists when relaunching FF in safe mode. Problem is temporarily solved by resetting FF, but repeats and persists after navigating to any page (such as wikipedia.org), closing all tabs, quitting FF, and relaunching FF. FF pref "When FF Starts" is set to home page by default, and FF home page is set to Mozilla FF start page by default. Changing this pref "Show Blank Page" has no effect on the behavior.

Mac OS System Pref "Close windows when quitting an app" is ticked (by default). Unticking this box does not change this FF error.
