Firefox resumes with tabs that were closed prior to closing Firefox during previous session. This did not happen before the current update and is a potential security risk.

Hi there! I found a previous thread that may help:

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button accepting the risk.

(2) In the search box above the list, type or paste resume and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click the browser.sessionstore.max_resumed_crashes preference to display a small edit box and change from 1 to 0 (that's a zero) then click OK

With this change, Firefox won't even try one automatic crash recovery but will immediately show the page letting you select windows and tabs.
