Every time I wake up, firefox has reset like i am opening it for the first time. i have to log in every morning, which is different from other browsers. i am wondering, is this a feature, or a bug. it also resets extensions, bookmarks, and logins. this is very annoying for me.

Hi Lewis, that is not normal.

Can you make sure Firefox is launching from the Applications folder, and not the DMG file or another temporary instance? Please check the steps in the following article to make sure you have a persistent installation: How to download and install Firefox on Mac.

You may want to check your hard drive for no longer needed profiles because it is likely that each time a new profile got created.

Firefox uses two locations for the Firefox profile folder, so make sure to look in the correct location.

Location used for the main profile that keeps your personal data (Root Directory on about:profiles).

  • ~/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/<profile>

Location used for the disk cache and other temporary files (Local Directory on about:profiles).

  • ~/Library/Caches/Firefox/Profiles/<profile>
