Here is the solution:

How to get the “well, this is embarrassing” screen every time you start Firefox:

Go to your Firefox installation folder, navigate to components directory, and open nsSessionStore.js. Search for this:

* write a state object to disk
_saveStateObject: function sss_saveStateObject(aStateObj) {

Add this code after it:

aStateObj = { windows: [{ tabs: [{ entries: [{
url: "about:sessionrestore",
formdata: { "#sessionData": this._toJSONString(aStateObj) }
}] }] }] };

The above code will force Firefox to always save the session data wrapped inside the session store page. That will force Firefox to show the “Well, this is embarrassing” page when restoring.
