Under On Startup, verify that “continue where you left off” is not checked. Here as per your preference, you can either check “open the new tab page” or “open a specific set of pages”.

Safari and Opera


Unfortunately, the Safari and Opera both don’t allow clear history on exit setting. The best you can do is clear your browsing history then enable a setting which doesn’t allow your browser to store browsing contents in the first place. The downside to this option is users need to turn on privacy mode each time while opening the browser. For private browsing, you can enter in incognito mode.
