Ever since Firefox 16 and 17 versions came out I've always had this issue with the location bar not remembering my option. "When using the location bar, suggest: Nothing." Is what I prefer but if I ever reboot my computer or simply restart firefox over all, it always goes back to the option "History and Bookmarks." I find this very annoying. The reason I waited so long to report this is because I had hoped the next version of Firefox would take care of it. Is there anything I can do to fix this problem or will I have to simply wait till it's fixed by Firefox itself?

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Unfortunately, that didn't help me. I went ahead and uninstalled Firefox completely without saving any customizations and reinstalled it. Seems to work fine now.
