Can't disable session restore

Kuphostiwe

Firefox Quantum 65.0; Windows 10 Pro; Grammarly, OneTab, RES, uBlock Origin

since about a week ago firefox always saves the open tabs and opens them after restarting the browser. It happens automatically and I can't stop firefox from doing so. I want every tab to be closed when I shut down firefox and they shouldn't automatically be reopened.

The box for Session Restore is unchecked and in about:config browser.sessionstore.max_resumed_crashes is set to zero and firefox still automatically restores the sessions

Update/solution: There is a user.js file in my profile's folder. I did not create it. The firefox documentation states that it doesnt exist by default, it has to be created. http://kb.mozillazine.org/User.js_file

Content of the user.js file:

   user_pref("extensions.blocklist.enabled",false);
   user_pref("extensions.blocklist.interval",31536000);
   user_pref("extensions.blocklist.url","");
   user_pref("extensions.blocklist.itemURL","");
   user_pref("extensions.blocklist.detailsURL","");
   user_pref("security.mixed_content.block_active_content",false);
   user_pref("security.mixed_content.block_display_content",false);
   user_pref("app.update.staging.enabled",true);
   user_pref("browser.safebrowsing.appRepURL","");
   user_pref("app.update.silent",true);
   user_pref("browser.safebrowsing.updateURL","");
   user_pref("browser.safebrowsing.reportURL","");
   user_pref("browser.safebrowsing.reportMalwareURL","");
   user_pref("browser.safebrowsing.reportMalwareErrorURL","");
   user_pref("browser.safebrowsing.malware.reportURL","");
   user_pref("services.sync.prefs.sync.browser.safebrowsing.enabled",false);
   user_pref("services.sync.prefs.sync.browser.safebrowsing.malware.enabled",false);
   user_pref("browser.sessionstore.resume_session_once", true);
   user_pref("browser.sessionstore.resume_session_once", true);
   user_pref("browser.sessionstore.resume_session_once", true);
   user_pref("browser.sessionstore.resume_session_once", true);
   user_pref("browser.sessionstore.resume_session_once", true);
   user_pref("browser.sessionstore.resume_session_once", true);
   user_pref("browser.sessionstore.resume_session_once", true);

and there is the problem. After deleting all the "user_pref("browser.sessionstore.resume_session_once", true);" lines but one and setting the remaining one to false my problem was solved. I guess some extension or plugin created this file and since it overrides any other change it didn't matter what setting I would change in the browser itself.

In the end, I set the user.js file to read-only to prevent this from happening again.

Update/solution: There is a user.js file in my profile's folder. I did not create it. The firefox documentation states that it doesnt exist by default, it has to be created. http://kb.mozillazine.org/User.js_file

Content of the user.js file:

   user_pref("extensions.blocklist.enabled",false);
   user_pref("extensions.blocklist.interval",31536000);
   user_pref("extensions.blocklist.url","");

   user_pref("app.update.staging.enabled",true);
   user_pref("browser.safebrowsing.appRepURL","");
   user_pref("app.update.silent",true);
   user_pref("browser.safebrowsing.updateURL","");
   user_pref("browser.safebrowsing.reportURL","");
   user_pref("browser.safebrowsing.reportMalwareURL","");

   user_pref("browser.sessionstore.resume_session_once", true);
   user_pref("browser.sessionstore.resume_session_once", true);
   user_pref("browser.sessionstore.resume_session_once", true);

and there is the problem. After deleting all the "user_pref("browser.sessionstore.resume_session_once", true);" lines but one and setting the remaining one to false my problem was solved. I guess some extension or plugin created this file and since it overrides any other change it didn't matter what setting I would change in the browser itself.

In the end, I set the user.js file to read-only to prevent this from happening again.
