Description

5 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:19.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/19.0
Build ID: 20130215130331

Steps to reproduce:

I have used Firefox for years now. In the past, it has always remembered my settings under >tools > options. For at least the last three days, it has somehow reset certain settings when I open it for the first time in the morning.


Actual results:

It resets home page to Mozilla; it resets "when I open a link in a new tab, switch to it immediately; under the "bookmarks" menu, it adds "recently saved bookmarks" which I have deleted. Overall, it seems to be acting as if I'm a new user to Firefox each day.


Expected results:

Homepage should be Comcast. Firefox has always remembered all these settings in the past.

Scott, do you still have this problem with the newer Firefox version?
Have you tried following the suggestion in comment 1?
