Disabling NoScript bricked my profile

I previously had the NoScript extension. I disabled it in preferences and restarted Firefox. It seems like one of these moz-extension:// windows were open at the time, so when I try to launch Firefox, it tries to re-create moz-extensions:// windows and dies.

I can’t start Firefox. I can’t start Firefox in --safe-mode. I’m happy to provide any debug info needed.

I actually remembered that I do daily backups and restored my profile. I’ll try to reproduce this and file a proper bug though. Thanks!

Do you need to retain tabs because if not then you can remove sessionstore.jsonlz4 in the Firefox profile folder to get a clean start ?

You can replace sessionCheckpoints.json in the profile folder with a sessionCheckpoints.json file that only contains "{}" (without the quotes) to get the about:sessionrestore page and select what to restore.
