The pref "browser.sessionstore.resume_session_once" sometimes gets stuck to "true," causing metroFx to always restore its previous session.

So it turns out we were initializing WindowsPrefSync after we were setting resume_session_once to false here:

http://dxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/browser/metro/components/SessionStore.js#137

This meant the registry entry for resume_session_once was not updated to false and stuck as true.

After doing this, I also noticed I was getting the issue you came across before, Tim, where the sessionstore.js file was not written correctly. This was something I missed when I did bug 950159 related to setting the _orderedWindows property even when we are not restoring.
