If Firefox shows "Remember History" then that means that all history settings have the default value.
Only if all History settings are default then you see "Firefox will: (Never) Remember History".
"Use custom settings for history" reverts to "(Never) Remember history" if all History and Cookies settings have the default setting.
You see "Use custom settings for history" if at least one of the History or Cookie settings is not the default to make you aware that you made changes.
