    Multiple problems with Firefox

    I've had to change my default browser to MS Edge due to multiple problems. I think one of the major problems is that my cookies are disabled and I can't find a way to enable them. I have instructions that say go to menu bar and click "Preferences". However, when I click the menu, Preferences is not an option. I need someone who is familiar with Firefox to tell me how to do this. I'd also like to export my Firefox folders to Edge...sick of Firefox. I've heard there were problems on the horizon and apparently what I heard is right. The most important thing I need is to be able to import my folders to Edge. Thanks.

    My Firefox 52.0.2 [latest] shows Options under Tools on the Menu Bar. Or just type about:preferences in the Address/URL box.

    Firefox settings for cookies are Tools > Options > Privacy > History >click the drop down for use custom settings for history and the cookie settings are there.

    Think the Linux version has preferences or did a few years back whereas in Windows it's options.
