I tried to have the third party cookies to be enabled,so I used the custom setting for history. After I set the web page where I get my weather, news etc, the location of my weather changes. I clicked on options and find out it is not on use custom settings for history,but remember history. Then my weather location is not local weather but the weather where the web browser it located. Why does this happen?

Accept 3rd party cookies isn't a "custom" setting, and unless you do have a custom setting selected that Options > Privacy tab will reset to Remember history.

Firefox shows the "(Never) Remember history" choice if all the history and cookie setting are the default.
Make at least one change to the default setting if you want "Use custom settings for history" to stay selected.
Otherwise Firefox will revert to "(Never) Remember history" if you return to the Privacy tab.
The choice "Use custom settings for history" will stay selected as long as not all settings are the default to make you aware that you made changes.
If you select "Never Remember history" then you enter Private Browsing mode and "Automatically start Firefox in a private browsing session" will be selected.
