If your Firefox layout and session got reset it's probably because of CCleaner's faulty option to clean "Last Download Location". (it also messes with Thunderbird)

See here

You can update to the latest version of CCleaner in order to remove that option, and then it should be fine.

I cannot count the number of times that "we" have told people to remove any/all references
to both Firefox & Thunderbird in CCleaner.

They are both well capable of taking care of themselves.

ccleaner 5.32 deletes favicons file in firefox 55 profiles when deleting "history" (5.33 bugfix)

i would say that v57 profiles are next victims with its changes.
