The message "Sorry. We're having trouble getting your pages back" means
exactly that Firefox believes it crashed or failed to recover
successfully from a crash, AFAIK, in which case it tries to restore the
state of the browser at crash time (and does not load the user's home
page, local or not, as if it hadn't crashed and was starting up
normally).

I've read that setting "Clear history when Firefox closes" is one way to
obviate the problem (you might not want to lose your history, though).
Another is to set "browser.sessionstore.max_resumed_crashes" to false in
'about:config'.

I guess we can assume safely that you're closing your browser sessions
"normally."

Good luck.
