Killing firefox from a script with 'kill pid' works, but there is a good chance that the next time you start firefox you get the 'Restore Session' page instead of the home page. This is not nice for my 'professional' application to be delivered to European Space Agency.

Could you tell me the signal to send to force a clean termination of the firefox process, or the directories to clean to avoid getting the 'Restore session' page?

Thanks in advance

Guy

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

You can delete the file sessionstore.js in the Firefox Profile Folder or edit the file and change the running flag at the end in stopped

"session":{"state":"running"}
"session":{"state":"stopped"}

Thank you very much cor-el for this first class support. Indeed, deleting the 'sessionstore.js' file was the kind of solution I was looking for (I don't need to keep sessions).
