Hi guys

My son has changed some Firefix settings with the result that every day all history is wiped, all bookmarks are gone and one has to re-enter all your favourite website addies afresh. The son can't remember what he has changed. WinXp, Firefox (the latest), P31.7 ghz. Any-one able to tell me what to change to get the above back. Yes, I know it's probably very secure, but it's quite inconvenient.

Thanks all

This could be done via an extension but have a look under Preferences > Privacy > History > Settings.

Possibly! I know on the Linux version of Firefox it is located elsewhere.

Ok, try under Tools > Options.

Just had to quickly check with a Windows user where it is located. :)

d*mn - no Preferences under Tools (this is Firefox). Only things remotely usable there in Options?

Sorry, that is me confusing you. Linux put things slightly differently. Follow R2x1's instructions. :)

Tools > Options > Privacy, and untick "Always clear my private data when I close Firefox".

Shouldn't Firefix fix itself? :D ;)
