    Was Firefox closed down prior to the restart?

    Check the Firefox "about:config" setting "browser.sessionstore.resuming_after_os_restart" (set to false)

    there is not "browser.sessionstore.resuming_after_os_restart" in there but i found "browser.sessionstore.resume_session_once" and set it to true. i should test again.

    Try in "safe mode" - from the Firefox Menu ("Hamburger" Icon) -> Help -> Restart with Add-ons Disabled

    and see if it then closes down correctly.

    Post:
    Code:
    ls -al /usr/share/autostart/
    Code:
    zypper se -si firefox
    Maybe move ~/.cache/sessions/
