Why does firefox not save my weather locations? I set the location at least five times per day

Firefox will not save my locations for weather. Anytime I close the browser, it opens in an area that I do not reside. I have tried many times to save the weather for zip code 36877 or 36874 after deleting the geographic area that appears. Please do not tell me to open the weather site and add/delete location. I am not a dumb ass, but I am ready to change browsers, as this is seems to be getting worse with upgrades.

Your suggestions are certainly appreciated. After trying these with no success, I uninstalled then reinstalled Mozilla with the same problem. After the reinstall, the steps you suggested were followed again. While I really like Firefox, it may be time to look at other options. Even after following steps to a tee, I have set my default zip code at least 20 times today. Thanks Carky
