I lose all my settings whenever I close Firefox
I just bought a new Mac! However, whenever I close Firefox, I lose everything. I have to sign in again to Firefox, reset my preferences how I like them, open my tabs again, login to my email and everything all over again. Its like I'm opening Firefox for the first time. I've set it to Remember History and Not Delete Cookies. What else am I missing?

Hi lfraven, this can happen if the Firefox.app file did not drop successfully into the Applications folder. Could you check the steps in the following article and see whether any of the tips there are helpful:
Note that running Firefox this way may have you caused you to end up with multiple profiles, so you can check possibly this and cleanup unused profiles (not sure if they will be listed on the about:profiles page).
Firefox uses two locations for the Firefox profile folder:
Location used for the main profile that keeps your personal data (Root Directory on about:profiles).
- ~/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/<profile>/
Location used for the disk cache and other temporary files (Local Directory on about:profiles).
