System: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium, 64 bit
 
I have 2 accounts on my laptop: an admin account & a user account.
I installed Firefox v24 (after completely uninstalling v23 using Revo Uninstaller) in the admin account and was able to set options such as the home page, etc. When I logged into the user account, setting the options does not work. For example, I set my home page to be about:blank & told Firefox not to check to see if it is my default browser. Then I exited Firefox. When I relaunched Firefox, it did not remember any of the options I had set - none!!!
 
Am I doing something wrong? If not, then Firefox is no longer a browser I can use.

You're not doing anything wrong. Standard user accounts are allowed to make changes to firefox.

 

Follow this guide here and see if you're allowed to make changes after doing the steps it suggests.
