   Make sure the site you're trying to access isn't listed.
       If it is listed, click on its entry, then click Remove Site. 
   Close the about:preferences page. Any changes you've made will automatically be saved.

I do not understand what this means "close the about preferences page" So my settings are not being changed

Hi, I agree that can be confusing! about:preferences is simply the URL of the Options tab/page, so all you have to do to save your settings is to close the tab.

More about cookies etc - Settings for privacy, browsing history and do-not-track.

If your question is resolved by this or another answer, please take a minute to let us know. Thank you.

I've carried out reset and still can't save settings. I don't understand the rest of the article.

I am trying to create a sync account. The login doesn't accept my password so I'm trying to get a new password. I'm told Cookies and Local storage are required and I should enable these in my browser.

I can't enable cookies (won't save) and don't know what local storage is or how to enable it.
