Personas suddenly not working Firefox 30, 31, 32 on Win 7 Pro x64 and Linux Mint 16 x64
Personas which have been working for a long time suddenly quit working on Win 7 and Linux. I tried changing to a different persona to change the background for the top border of the window and it just goes to some odd color and the personas just don't show up. This has been with Firefox 30, 31, 32. The personas still work with Win XP Pro run as a virtual machine on Win 7 host or Win 8 host. I thought it was a Windows thing until I saw the same problem with Linux. Everything else seems normal so this isn't a real bad problem. It's just odd.
Make sure that you do not run Firefox in permanent Private Browsing mode (Never remember history).
- Tools > Options > Privacy > Firefox will: "Use custom settings for history"
- Deselect: [ ] "Always use Private Browsing mode"
