In Address bar type about:config. it will show the information in three tab preference name,status,value,type. In that section type browser.sessionstore.enabled but set the value to true in filter. Same procedure for browser.warnOnQuit and browser.warnOnRestart set this value to true and browser.startup.page to 1 or 2.

Try to switch "warn me when closing multiple tabs" on or In Tools, Options, Tabs, then check "always show the tab bar".

Prompt the user when they close a window with more than one tab open probably with the usual "don't ask me again". click the little box to set your "Warn Me When Closing Multiple Tabs" preference to "on," and close the Preferences/Options dialog window.
