I have to start from scratch each time I want to log in to Firefox. I am asked for user name and password, then I am taken to a screen that says "getting started with Firefox" as if I've not set it up already. How can I access Firefox without having to go through this process?

I closed Firefox yesterday evening, after making the changes suggested, above. This morning when I attempted to log in, I had the same 'Start from scratch' log in problem. I've included screen shots of the sequence of steps that I need to take every time I attempt to log in. (There should have been four screen shots, but the last one is not completing its download).

Note: Some software, like Advanced SystemCare with Surfing Protection, can protect files in the Firefox profile folder against changes. If you have such software then check the settings or uninstall this software.
