Have you copied the firefox.app file to the applications folder on your Mac or are you just opening Firefox directly from the downloaded .dmg file?

You need to copy the firefox.app file to the applications folder or else Firefox will constantly be detected as a new installation and will replace your settings with the default settings by creating a new blank profile. See How to download and install Firefox on Mac.

Hope this helps.
