User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9.2) Gecko/20100115 Firefox/3.6 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729)

Can't save layout preferences such as location bar..I want it to stay on Nothing.  I have gone into the back-end and changed the particular attributes from true to false..it will stay that way for a day or two, but then when I open firefox it will be back to the history and bookmarks option in the location bar.
Please fix this since the options sent to me before are only temporary.  We need a permanent fix for the location bar to stay with the choice, and not revert back to something else like history and bookmarks

Tyler..I tried the fixes in your link the last time I submitted this bug report and it only worked for a few times then reverted back.  

Thanks anyway.

I am going uninstall firefox and install just the version I am using.  I read somewhere that may fix the problem

No reply from reporter, INCOMPLETE. Please retest with Firefox 4 or later and a new profile (http://support.mozilla.com/kb/Managing+profiles). If you continue to see this issue with the newest firefox and a new profile, then please comment on this bug.
