There seems to be a bug, Firefox keeps resetting itself. I downloaded the new version that's when it started. Every day or two it kicks me out of all my accounts, uninstalls the add-ons and deletes all my history/cache/everything. So I reinstalled an older version and its still happening. I've been using Firefox for years and always loved it, never had any issues. Haven't changed any settings on my end that would affect this.

Separate Security Issue: Update your Flash Player or remove it using these links; Uninstall Flash Player | Windows {web link} Uninstall Flash Player | Mac {web link}

Note: Windows users should download the ActiveX for Internet Explorer. and the plugin for Plugin-based browsers (like Firefox).

Note: Windows 8 and Windows 10 have built-in flash players and Adobe will cause a conflict. Install the plugin only. Not the ActiveX.

Firefox keeps resetting itself

Please explain the problem in detail. What happens? What are the exact error message(s) ?


Back up and restore information in Firefox profiles.{web link} I use an add-on that makes backups of my user profile, Just In Case. Unfortunately, it is not compatible with the current Firefox.

Every now and then, open the profile folder and create a copy of the current profile as is to another location on your hard drive. This way you will have a backup.

If you do this each day, you will not lose much data. This should be done with Firefox Closed.

Note: In case you need to restore from these backups, you may need to overwrite old or corrupted files.
