-> click Firefox button and click Options

  • Privacy panel -> History section -> Firefox will: select "Use Custom Settings for History" -> REMOVE Checkmark from Permanent Private Browsing mode -> place Checkmarks on:
    • 1) Remember my Browsing History 2) Remember Download History 3) Remember Search and Form History 4) Accept Cookies from sites -> click Exceptions... button and click Remove All button -> click Close 5) Accept Third-party Cookies -> Keep Until : select They Expire
    • -> REMOVE CHECKMARK from CLEAR HISTORY WHEN FIREFOX CLOSES
  • Security panel -> place Checkmark on Remember Passwords for sites -> click Exceptions... button and click Remove All -> click Close

-> Click OK on Options window -> Restart Firefox

Check and tell if its working.

-> IF you use Clear Recent History feature, DO NOT select Cookies, Forms and Search History, Active Logins, Site Preferences

-> IF you use Privacy Cleanup softwares like CCleaner, DON'T SELECT FIREFOX IN ITS SETTINGS. These softwares can be responsible for Deleting your Firefox Settings.
