Frequently over the last few days(though not today yet), when I open Firefox it tells me it didn't previously close properly and asks if I want to restore the session. But I haven't been having browser crashes. Sometimes I exit with multiple tabs open, which I click yes to closing them all, and sometimes I exit with just the one page open. It seems to happen in both instances, though not always.

I'm running Firefox

I always exit by clicking on the 'X' in the top right of the window.

Is it possible that I'm not remembering to close Firefox when I reboot after an install or settings change, and this is why it tells me is wasn't closed properly?

If you do not close Ff, but simply reboot (for whatever reason), you will get that message. If you are absolutely sure you have closed Ff each time this has happened, then delete Ff and reinstall it. Since there apparently is no consistency in the problem, it is most likely your forgetting that is the cause.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
