Firefox is not saving my history and cookie settings.

I have been going to "Options" and changing my settings to "Never Remember History" and then I hit "OK". When I return to "Options" either in the same window or after closing out, it's hasn't changed and is still at the old setting "Use Custom Settings for History."

Can someone help me adjust these privacy settings so that they are saved and do not return back to an old customization?

Re: Firefox is not saving my history and cookie settings.

The "Use custom settings for history" selection allows to see the current history and cookie settings, but selecting this doesn't make any changes to history and cookie settings.
Firefox shows the "Use custom settings for history" selection as an indication that at least one of the history and cookie settings is not the default to make you aware that changes were made.
If all History settings are default then the custom settings are hidden and you see "Firefox will: (Never) Remember History".
"Never Remember History" means that Private Browsing is active and "Always use private browsing mode" gets a check mark.
