Can't Undo permanent private browsing...?

more options

I was messing around with Privacy & Security settings. Under Cookies & Site Data, I checked Delete Cookies & Site Data when Firefox closes. I've decided I don't like it and want to uncheck it. But now it's greyed out and I can't find any way to change it back. It says I'm in permanent private browsing mode. There MUST be a way to change this back to how it was! What is it???

Actually, the setting is in the History section. Scroll down past Cookies to History. Change the selector to

Firefox will: Use custom settings for history

Then uncheck the box for "Always use private browsing mode"

That may or may not adjust the setting in the cookies and site data section, but you'll be able to change that yourself as desired.

Hi carolabqnm, how do you know your Firefox is using Automatic Private Browsing mode? Do you see this on the Options/Preferences page:

and

What happens when you uncheck that box in the second screenshot? Does that switch Firefox back to normal (after a restart)?

If you have a different problem after switching back to normal, perhaps it should be the subject of a new question?
