Every time I reset my Macbook Air, Firefox keeps resetting itself, and none of the history of what I have been doing is there. This is quite annoying, as all my Custom Sites I set up disappear, so I have to set those sites again, and I also have to log into everything again. Please Help!! The attached picture is what my Firefox looks like right after all sites reset...

You may be in Private Browsing mode or told Firefox not to remember.

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 ONLY Cache and Form And Search History leaving the others off.

Make sure that you do not run Firefox from the Disk Image file and that Firefox is installed properly.

Open the Firefox Disk Images file and drag the Firefox application to the Applications folder on your hard drive. You shouldn't double-click the Firefox application to run it from the Disk Images, but instead drag it out of the DMG folder.
