Don’t give Firefox a chance to show ‘Well this is embarrassing’ next time

Firefox is embarrassing you with restore session error on startup, here is how to permanently disable it.

Starting with Firefox 2, the Mozilla browser has the Session Restore feature built in, which stores all session data (which includes: open windows and tabs, Windows size and position, and text typed into forms) in the Sessionstore.js file that resides in the Firefox Profile Folder file.

Reasons for Firefox to show embarrassing error on startup

When Firefox crashes for the first time – due to plugin content or a problem with the page you are viewing – Firefox automatically restores the previous session on startup.

If the browser crashes for the second time, the Restore Session error page or window will appear with the message: “Well, this is embarrassing, Firefox is having trouble recovering your windows and tabs. This is usually caused by a recently opened webpage.” . The error suggests removing one or more tabs causing problems or prompting you to start a new session.
