Do NOT want tabs to restore when I open Firefox
When I open firefox on my laptop, it does exactly what I want it to do, and displays a blank tab. No pockets, no bookmarks, no past tabs, nothing. Just a tab, and a blank background. In order for this to work, I had to change multiple settings and set [browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash] in about:config to "false."
Firefox on my mobile devices is missing most of these settings, and of course, mobile Firefox does not have about:config (a fact which I find incredibly frustrating). The only setting I have found that stops tabs from reopening in a new session is dot menu > settings > general > tabs which offers me these choices:
o Never x After one day o After one week o After one month
Given that I use Firefox multiple times a day, even selecting the shortest possible setting means that my tabs will always reopen when I start a new session. I do not want tabs restoring! If I want to restore a session, I will use "restore previous session." I don't need the app doing it for me, unless I ask. How can I turn off this incredibly irritating feature?

About:config is available in the Beta and Nightly versions of Firefox for Android. Please be aware that the risks of losing data are much higher than in the desktop version and that many of the preferences are baked into the app when the code is compiled.
Have you tried turning on the "Delete browsing data on quit" option in the Firefox for Android Settings menu? You can set it to close tabs only.
