Is there a command-line option that will override the "show my windows and tabs from last time"?

A friend of mine occasionally runs into a web page that causes him problems. To be sure, he should note the URL and submit a bug report if a page causes a browser crash, but in any case, while by default he likes the browser to restore windows and tabs from the previous session, in the case of an obnoxious web page, you *don't* want that to happen. I'm hoping that I can set up an icon for him to click on that will start the browser up on his home page instead of restoring previous windows and tabs when he gets into trouble.

I have firefox and it's having a strange problem today. When I'm on facebook, I can't click on the icons at the top. I can't click the message, friend request, notifications, home, profile icons and can't click the one that allows you to sign out. So i can't even sign out. What I mean by can't click is when I put the cursor over those icons, it doesn't change into the finger. When I left click it anyway, nothing happens. This doesn't happen in internet explorer, but I want to keep using firefox. What's causing this? I also noticed that this doesn't just happen on facebook. I've uninstalled and reinstalled firefox. I restarted the PC. It didn't help.

When I access the internet, there is about a two-inch strip across my screen, below the toolbar that is not responding to my mouse. The nonresponsive section is located where I log on to Facebook, but, the problem is on every webpage.

For example, on the Firefox Help page, my mouse can't select the options in the blue section at the top of the page.

Every web page and the top of the bookmark sidebar when open does not respond to the mouse. Everything above the browser wind seems to work fine, and everything below the top 1 1/2 inches at top of page seems fine. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox 7.0.1 without any change. The initial update to 7.0.1 did not seem to have any issues, and I don't know exactly when this changed.

Example: I want to watch a video on startrek.com. You could either make it to full screen/ But my preference is to zoom on it. With Internet Explorer you can go down to the right lower part of the screen and click it to go from 100 percent to 125. On firefox on view the zoom it just makes the text larger. The viewer for the video is the same.

Thanks.
