    I assume that you have the Linux version? You could d/l and install a new copy in case it helps; http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all.html If that doesn't help I don't know what else to suggest as I don't use Firefox very much.

    Version 2.0.0.10 is due out soon, maybe next week.

    If I am not mistaken, at the time when it asks for you to choose to restore sessions, it gives you the option not to - choose not to restore sessions.

    Yes, next week, a new security patch will be out for Firefox. Everyone should update Firefox with the new patch.

    If you use Linux, depending on the distro, using Synaptic Package Manager to update to the new release from repositories eases the process, however, I am not sure how quickly the new releases are packaged up and installed in the repositories for everyone to download. The other option is to download from here if you are U.S. English version oriented.
