How do I make Firefox not reload the page that made it crash?

Firefox doesn't lock up very often. But once in a while it does, and I have to kill it with the Task Manager. (Win7-64) Problem is, next time I run it, it helpfully reloads all the tabs it had open when it was forcibly terminated, including the one that locked it up the previous time. The only way to escape getting locked up again is to be quick on the trigger and hit its "close" button before it freezes.
How do I make it not do this? What I want, in these cases, is for it to start up the way it usually does, with only my designated start page being loaded. I want it to not be helpful. I want it to not restore all the pages I had open.
Understand that it doesn't do this routinely. Ordinarily, if I'm through with it and hit the close button, the next time it starts I only get my designated start page. (Which is exactly what I want.)
This only happens if I terminate Firefox using the Task Manager. I don't want it to do so in this case, either.
