    What did you do specifically to prevent firefox from randomly opening old sessions when you start it up?

    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.

    Tools/Options/General/Startup/When Firefox Starts: Change the setting.

    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.

    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.
