Why does Firefox keep defaulting to its own settings?

Veröffentlicht

Every few days now, I open my browser to find a black screen and I have to reset all my own preferences again, untick 'highlights' and 'tips' re-tick restore previous session/top sites - everything. I've uninstalled firefox and reinstalled it, removed the user data files and cache but it won't stop doing it - it's exasperating. Is there something I haven't ticked or unticked that is making this do this all the time please? I'm not a techy, so be gentle...

Please update to Firefox 68, and let me know if you still see this issue.

If you lost personal data then it is possible that a new default-release profile folder has been created. See "Determine if Firefox has created a new profile":

You can open the about:profiles page via the location bar to check whether multiple profiles are present and what profile Firefox currently is using.
