why do i keep getting restore window when opening firefox since updating. I do not want to restore but this pops up each time instead of my home page as set

Chosen solution

A likely cause is that you are first closing all Firefox windows and then close the Firefox application.

Some have reported that closing Firefox (Firefox > Quit) while the browser window is still open works for them.
