Just tried this, and it seemed to work (no msg after a killall -9
firefox-bin anyway! :-)

 1) Go to about:config
 2) Right click the list of items, go New -> Boolean
 3) preference name should be: browser.sessionstore.enabled
 4) value False
 5) try and see!

I think the only downside is this disables it completely, whether on a clean
shut down or not.
