With that I mean, everytime I fix it, the next day i have to fix it again. Is there an addon to help me with this or can someone tell me what to do so it wont occur again? Or do i have to keep restarting firefox once a day?

Hi NotRelevant, could you describe the problem you're having and how you are fixing it? You mentioned restarting Firefox once a day, but perhaps there is more of a pattern to it than the passage of time, such as leaving particular sites open or letting Windows sleep/hibernate, etc.

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.

Its not like it doesn't save but when I fix it is on true then i have to set it to false and then to true, then restart FireFox and done.

Help me understand. What is going wrong that requires you to restart Firefox? Is exiting Firefox and restarting it the only thing you need to do to fix the problem, and everything is fine for the rest of the day?

Yes it is fine for the rest of the day, well look, i need to change the Value from true to false and then to true and then i need to restart FireFox so it works.
