Hello everyone,

I believe I asked this about a year back, and the answer is that is wasn't possible.

I would like a specific behaviour on firefox. That, whenever I open it, it does the exact same thing. It opens a single new window. That it never ever tries to restore the last session. That it always starts fresh.

Preferably even if it "crashed", I tend not to close the browser but shut down with the tabs and apps open.

Intuitively this sounds to me like it should be easy to set, but I haven't been able to find a way.

Also, if possible I would like the rest of history to work. I find that history is useful, it's the session specifically I'd like it to forget / not try to resotre.

Thanks,

Sashin

Hi Sashin, I'm not aware that anything has changed with the Linux auto-resume feature from six months ago: https://support.mozilla.org/questions/1323484. Maybe someone else has a new idea on that.

For crashing, though, you can prevent automatic restoration:

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button accepting the risk.

(2) In the search box in the page, type or paste browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click the preference to switch the value from true to false
