why will Firefox not keep my settings? I must reset all of my settings every time that I log in.

Every time I log out, shut down & restart. It returns Firefox to the default settings that occur after a new install. It keeps the settings if I exit & restart Firefox without shutting down but if I shut down, it forgets everything.

Which security software (firewall, anti-virus) do you have?

Some security software has virtualization or sandbox features that may cause problems by protecting and restoring files in the Firefox profile folder.

Mine works well for a week or so then goes off where the links come up as raw data. I reset Firefox and everything works fine.
