Hi Everyone,
I'm having a problem saving my setup for Firefox 57.0.4. I have my homepage set as the Mozilla Firefox Startup Page, Pocket enabled, and Horizontal Wood theme. Every time I close the browser and reopen, the startup page changes to Google, Pocket is disabled, and the theme changes to Dark Theme. All my toolbar settings and configurations remain unchanged. I have unchecked the Clear History box in options, closed the browser and reopened. The same thing happened. It is getting old having to go to about:config and set the pocket option to true every time. Along with resetting the homepage options and themes. I would appreciate any solutions, suggestions, links, etc. Thanks to everyone for replying!

What security software are you using on that system? It sounds as though something on your system is blocking Firefox from saving those changes.

What does your desktop shortcut show?

You should be on FF 58, not 57.
