All references to restore session in about:config are marked false. In options "use home page" is checked. But starting today Firefox keeps restoring previous sessions. Two other computers have the same version (60.0.2) with no problem, and one is a clone of mine except for some different soft ware. No software/addons have been installed in the last month. Rebooting doesn't help.

Are you exiting Firefox before shutting down the computer. Menu path File->Exit is one way to ensure that Firefox does not think there has been a crash which would result in it attempting to restore the last session.

Is that the way to go about it?
What if you, Tools | Options -> General --> When Firefox starts ---> (unset) Show my windows and tabs from last time?
