I keep trying to get rid of old bookmarks and reorganize the one I have, but the next day all the hard work just disappears. I have to reload stuff from Monday when this first started happening but even then only some stuff is carrying over, folders I create to put stuff in remain but they're empty. I already tried the places.sqlite option twice but that isn't doing anything.

Firefox 24 - options not remembered from session to session

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.

Any suggestions?

Firefox never used to do this. It does it with our Intranet site and on other external sites. I don't want to save the pdf. This is very infuriating and if it is not resolved I will change to another default browser.

Also a recent Firefox update to v 23 causes our Intranet https site to be blocked. We have to select allow. Everytime we go to another page the same thing happens. It is hopeless and totally unworkable. How do I get back to v 22?

I have Xfinity/Comcast email. I've been accessing it for years on Firefox at xfinity.com. The email screen now has shadows/double letters. I'm able to click on and read all of the email, but it isn't displaying properly in the Inbox. I contacted Xfinity and they asked me if I was using the most updated version of Firefox (I am) and then they had me try it in Explorer, which I did and it worked--but I'd rather use Firefox. Can you help?
