Cannot change numerous History settings in Privacy tab (is Norton 360 and/or Avast causing this problem?)

I have Norton 360 and Avast Internet Security 2014. I AM able to change most Firefox settings. I am NOT able to change numerous Privacy settings (mainly History and Use custom settings for history, including all subsettings). When I change certain Privacy/History settings, the browser tells me it must close and restart to disable this existing setting. When I open the Privacy tab after browser restart, I see that the change(s) I made did NOT take effect. I have two enabled firewalls, managed by Norton and Avast, respectively (the Windows 7 OS firewall is disabled, probably because of the third-party management by Norton and Avast).

      • What, specifically, is causing this problem (being unable to change some important Privacy/History settings), and what can I do to regain the ability to make any and all Privacy setting changes whenever I want to?

Thanks.

You have both Norton 360 and Avast Internet Security 2014 installed and enabled on that PC?

IMO, that is just asking for problems!

What is the setting you are trying to change which requires a restart?

Could you check for a user.js file that may be overriding your changes? This article describes how to do that: How to fix preferences that won't save.

Speaking of avast!, you may want to disable the avast! Online Security extension. A variety of odd problems have been reported with it. You can do that on the Add-ons page. Either:

  • Ctrl+Shift+a
  • orange Firefox button (or Tools menu) > Add-ons

In the left column, click Extensions.
