When I upgraded to Firefox 24, all of the option settings from v23 reset to the defaults. I put them back the way I had them before, but after restarting the browser, everything defaulted as before. I am running NoScript, and any changes to its rules are also lost when I restart the browser. I've restarted several times. with and without system restarts, and the results are always the same.
History and passwords seem to be updated and maintained across sessions. The problem is with configuration data for Firefox and NoScript.
I am running XP SP3 with 2 user accounts. One is an administrator account that I use only for system maintenance, and the other is a limited account where I do most of my work. The admin account, where I installed v24, remembers configuration changes between sessions; the problem is with the limited account, which is the one I care about.
I've checked the profile in use for the limited account, and the files have current update stamps in the \limited user\application data\mozilla folders, so it doesn't look like an authorization problem. This folder now contains 86 numbered prefs- files of which all but 3 have today's maintenance date, but the prefs.js file shows yesterday's date, before I upgraded versions.
There are also 25 numbered sessionstore- files, all of which have old dates, but the sessionstore.js and sessionstore.bak files show as current.
