Hi, king2002
  I found this article:
http://teck.in/firefox-save-tabs-on-exit.html .

  Probably, you understand Firefox better than me.  Does the information in this article help to answer my question?
  Using your suggestion, where in the registry would I find this setting for Firefox?  i don't see many settings in the registry for Firefox.
Thanks, LLJ45

You can't disable this from the server or from ASP.NET.

You can disable this in the browser itself, but you will have to do this for every client visiting your site.

Hi, ToAoM
  Could this Firefox capability be disabled using Javascript as I mentioned in the original question on either the aspx page or the code behind file?  I know that it may not be considered a good practice.  However, it is a necessity.  I am not concerned about "good practice".
Thanks, LLJ45

I went through the API docs and the feature docs on the Mozilla website, and a feature to suppress session restore for a specific site isn't mentioned anywhere.
https://wiki.mozilla.org/Session_Restore

I suggest you file a bug or feature request in BugZilla to file your concern:

The fact that it can't be done using Javascript, doesn't mean we didn't help you come to that conclusion.
