Description

For some reason, "Never Remember History" can't get selected on the privacy pane. Once one selects it and closes about:preferences + reopens it the old selection is still active. This is pretty confusing. Reported on our blog: https://blog.torproject.org/blog/tor-browser-60-released#comment-185067.

Welcome to the ticket:18937#comment:23. It's more weird that if you choose Remember History, and TBB asks you to restart, and you click Cancel, then Accept third-party cookies will be set to Always. (Related: #10824.)
Related: #16889.

Since Firefox 44, by Mozilla's logic, "Never Remember History" means "Remember History" with PBM:

     if (this._checkHistoryValues(this.prefsForKeepingHistory)) {
       if (getVal("browser.privatebrowsing.autostart"))
         mode = "dontremember";
       else
         mode = "remember";
     }
     else
       mode = "custom";
