How do I prevent FIrefox updates from resetting my privacy settings?

Geplaatst

Very frequently I see that my privacy settings have been completely opened up after a Firefox update. This defeats my purpose in using Firefox to start with, which is to have strict settings. How can I stop this from happening?

Never updating Firefox is also not ideal. I want to be able to install updates without my settings being changed.

What settings is this about? Updating Firefox shouldn't modify settings stored in the profile folder. If that still happens then there is usually some security software involved.

For example, I always set all browsers to delete browsing history upon exit. After the last couple of updates, I have had to re-set that option.
