Does this help?

Type about:preferences#privacy<enter> in the address bar. The button next to History, select Use Custom Settings.

Turn off Always Use Private Browsing Mode Turn on Remember My Browsing And Download History At the bottom of the page, turn on Clear History When Firefox Closes. At the far right, press the Settings button. Turn on Cache and Form And Search History and whatever else you want.


Macs: Make sure you install Firefox properly and that you do not run Firefox from within the DMG (Disk Images) file. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-download-and-install-firefox-mac

You can use Private Browsing mode to prevent storing data in the profile folder.

Note that you should never connect to Sync on a computer that isn't your own as that will load your personal data on this device.

Is there a way to get access to my add-ons without connecting to Sync? I really would miss my ad blocker and password manager.
