Every time I close my Firefox browser, the same tabs are restored after reopening the browser. I don't want that to happen. How can I get them to close completely? I'd still like the option to restore the tabs but not every time.

Make sure "Open previous windows and tabs" is disabled in settings and your homepage is set to "Firefox Home (Default)" instead of "Custom URLs".

The last session will still be restored if Firefox crashes or does not close cleanly, this can be avoided by going to about:config and changing browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash to false.

Use one of these to close Firefox if you are currently doing that by clicking the close X on the Firefox Title bar, especially if you have multiple windows or Private Browsing windows open to prevent losing tabs in unnoticed windows.

  • "3-bar" menu button -> Exit (Power button)
  • Windows: File -> Exit
  • Mac: Firefox -> Quit Firefox
  • Linux: File -> Quit

Make sure you give Firefox enough time to close properly before you close down Windows.
