    Cerawy, the Firefox profile manager is a tool we have available for detecting the cause of issues like the ones you are having now. Use it. Let me tell you a quick story. I used Adblock plus for about 9 years, never an issue. But six months ago I started experiencing slight freezes, specially immediately after opening Firefox. After a couple of minutes, most of the time all would be OK but not every time. After experiencing the issue for a couple of days, I was disgusted and opened the Firefox profile manager, and tested using a hew profile. In less than 5 minutes, I had detected that the cause of my issue was Adblock plus. Thats how long it took. How did I detected it? Well, inmediatedly after installing ABP, the issue showed up. Later I found out that there was a bug with the version of ABP I was using.
    Okay, im going to create a new profile and get back with the results.

    Alright, so i did some testing, and the first thing i noticed is that firefox seems to run a lot smoother after creating a new profile. Its also a lot more responsive. Sadly, it didnt solve any of the other problems.

    I am running Firefox 57 Beta 5 and Nightly 58 Both 64 Bit and they share the same profile so there is no need for that profile manager. I am have no problems at all. Just an FYI

    I see. So, what did you do to prevent firefox from randomly opening old sessions when you open the browser?

    I have it set to open the Firefox default start page which is a New Tab. I never had it open old sessions. Maybe you are not closing it all the way on the previous use, Some versions of Firefox are like that.

    Perhaps Firefox is not shutting down properly.
    You could try resetting Firefox.
    Alternatively, you could try 3 about:config settings:

    browser.sessionhistory.max_entries set to 0

    browser.sessionstore.max_resumed_crashes set to 0

    browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash set to false

    Play around with them, see if it helps.

    I just changed the settings, but i will have to give it some days to test it, to see if it works.

    Also, i think i may have found a way to disable the web push notifications. You basically have to set dom.push.enabled to false in about config. I wish i knew some website that would make the web push notifications appear on purpose, so i could see if it works.

    Anyway, i just tested it using this website. If i set dom.push.enabled to false, it doesnt work. It also goes for setting dom.webnotifications.serviceworker.enabled to false. It doesnt work.

    If i checking the do not disturb button, it wont work as well, because it unchecks itself everytime i close firefox for some reason. Its very annoying with some of these push notifications.

    Have you tried deleting Firefox, then deleting the entire Firefox folder in Program Files (x86). and reinstalling Fx? This is not a common method of repairing Fx, but is sometimes recommended when the program simply will not run properly and the usual ways of repairing it don't work.

    Doing that will not harm anything, but might produce a better-functioning Firefox.

    Yes, I have tried installing firefox on a fresh installation of windows. I have tried googling this issue as well, and i see a lot of people are having the same issue, but theres very little support from the developers. Id say they should at least add an option to disable web push notifications.
