After I have finished installing a new theme, whenever I restart the firefox for the third time, firefox reset to its default theme automatically. Solution?


For eg., I installed foxdie 4 theme. It asked to restart to take effect. I restarted and the theme changed to foxdie 4 theme. But when I started the firefox for the next time, foxdie 4 theme is gone. Firefox reset to its previous theme. Its happening whenever I change to new themes. Every time. With every themes.
