    I have it set to Google but the old sessions still pops up randomly sometimes when I start firefox.
    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 have changed the settings, but I will have to give it some days to test it since the problem occours randomly.

    P.S. I think I have found a way to disable the web push notifications, you 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 so I could test if it works.

    Update: I just tested it using this website. Setting dom.push.enabled to false didn't work. Setting dom.webnotifications.serviceworker.enabled to false didn't work either. Checking the do not disturb button didn't help either because it unchecks itself everytime I close firefox for some reason. Clicking always block notifications only works for the individual websites. Very annoying. Firefox is basically producing spam right in my face without giving me any options to disable it. Still looking for a solution to this problem.

    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 windows installation. Googling these issues brings lots of people with the same problems, but with poor support from the developers. They should at least had added an option to disable web push notifications.

    ...............so there is no need for that profile manager. I am have no problems at all. Just an FYI
    My suggestion to test using a new Firefos profile to determine where his problems comes from was a lot better than yours (Do nothing). This thread is about his Firefox issues and not about how great Firefox works for you. Testing using a new profile is a tool we have available for diagnosing and fixing problems, it usually works.

    Did anyone find a way to disable the web push notifications? They are the most intrusive right now and it gets annoying after clicking them away so many times.

    It took me perhaps fifteen seconds to do a Google search, which turned up this information; I make no claims as to its accuracy nor its usefulness, as I have not even read the information or taken advantage of whatever it tells its reader to do:.

    (Pedantic comment: Note the proper use of `its', without an apostrophe.)

    I know what a web push notification is, they are annoying. Sadly, the firefox website doesn't mention any way to disable it permanently, unless I missed something.

    Well, in a way, yes, you did miss something, as the linked file is somewhat out-of-date, but if you go to Options and search for Notifications, you will be taken to the Privacy & Security Page, where you will find an entry for Permissions; ironically enough, that entry has a link to the page I sent the link to you earlier.

    There is an entry there specifically for "Do not disturb me." I'm not certain why it seems to say that the setting might be changed when you restart Fx: While I am not in the habit of checking that, I don't get notifications, so have to suspect that the wording is itself suspect.

    Yes, I clicked that button many times, doesn't help. It unchecks itself again.

    Should problably also say that I have been testing firefox with the new profile for some time, and so far firefox hasn't been as slow and sluggish as before. I suspect that the addons I was using may have been slowing firefox?
