how do i stop firefox on osx restoring tabs on startup?

more options

Since Firefox 7, every time I start Firefox it restores all my tab. I just want it to start a new session! The option in lion to "restore windows when quiting and re-opening apps" is switched off and no other apps on my system does this.

I've managed to fix this. It looks like Browser.startup.page had somehow been set to '3' (restore session - normally only used for crash restore). I've changed it to '0' and its now working. I don't understand how this could have happened - not sure if its a firefox 7 thing?
