Why do my General settings (Applications) change without any input from me?
I have my Applications settings under the General tab set to the offered defaults. Each time I review these settings I find them spontaneously reset to "Always Ask". Why is this happening?!?!?

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.
Maybe your Avast Antivirus software is causing this issue.
Boot the computer in Windows Safe mode with network support to see if that has effect in case security software is causing problems.
