This has been happening for a very long time now
I have uninstalled and installed firefox numerous times but my problem still continues
My problem is that everytime i open firefox, in the [Tools > Options > Advanced > Network > Settings] unlike everyone else my box is not set to 'No Proxy' but it is automatically set to 'Manual Proxy Configuration' and it has some numbers inside.
This is a hassle as everytime i open firefox i need to go into the settings and change the box.
When i open firefox and there are updates for my Add - Ons they cannot update as i am not connected to the internet yet through firefox.
Can someone please help me find a way to make it set to 'No Proxy' each time i open firefox.
Take your time i know how busy you guys can be.

The setting that is causing Firefox to not remember your selections is stored in your user.js file.
If you are able to change some preference settings but not others, look for a user.js file in your profile folder (Windows users, read this for help finding it). The user.js file does not exist by default; it is created by users and, in a few cases, by some software programs, so that certain settings get written back to the prefs.js file each time you restart your Mozilla application If you find a user.js file, either remove it from the profile folder or edit the file to remove any unwanted settings. See Resetting preferences for more information.
Let me know if anything is unclear.
