For years I've had the same problem of basic resets on my custom settings everytime Firefox updates. I've read hundreds of posts, complaints and suggestions.

The best suggestions I've found are to use both userContent.css and changes to the about:config file. I have actually created a .txt file of unique about:config lines and settings so I can copy, paste, and set to my settings without having to look everything back up again. It still takes me 10 minutes, but at least it gets done my way.

A solution I think all of us would love to see are simple instructions on how to back up the current about:config settings and reinstate them AFTER an update so our choices stay as we want them. This shouldn't be too difficult. Export settings are available for all kinds of parts of Firefox, Thunderbird and add-ons. How about making that a priority in the next update?
