The "restore windows" feature is driving me up the wall, because disabling it seems impossible.

I have gone into the General Pane and unsuccessfully disabled "Restore windows when quitting and re-opening applications."

I have downloaded Tinkertool and used the appropriate setting to disable the "restore windows" feature for my browsers. This worked once, but has since failed.

Now I have read about a workaround that involves locking a Safari file in the Library as a remedy, but it is ridiculous that I should have to do that.

Since System Preferences has a "restore windows" option, but since it's not working, is this whole issue a Lion bug?

I believe so. I mean, it never worked right for me in Lion. I have no problems for whatever reason in Mountain Lion though. Perhaps it's just time to upgrade if you can. I think it's well worth it for the overall bug fixes and feature set.

Lion OS was never ever a problem for me at all. It works perfectly.
