So if I understand the use case:

(A) For privacy, the user wants to control whether it is possible to restore current tabs in the next session. Assume the user does not care about someone viewing their history, this is just about session restore.

(B) The available option of closing individual tabs so they would require an extra step to restore is not sufficient, there should be no way to restore the session's tabs, whether they were open or closed at the time of Exit.

(C) As a matter of practicality, the very best time to make that decision is when exiting the current session.

Someone could file that in Bugzilla:

Or take it to Discourse:

"browser.showQuitWarning" which was invalidated in Firefox 63 seems to be restored to the equivalent function in Firefox 65.

Bug 550559 - Decouple Session Restore from Quit warning, warn when using keyboard shortcut on Mac & Linux

Currently, version 65.0b1 can be tried on Developer Edition.
