Exceptions to blocking HTML message content not saved

Hello,
  Thunderbird 52.7.0
  linux 4.4.126-48-default x86_64

  Since last week TB has been erasing on exit, or simply not saving,
exceptions to blocking HTML email content (edit :: preferences ::
privacy :: Mail Content), mainly images. I do not know what may have
changed to cause this.
  I have gone to the Privacy page, opened Exceptions, selected Save
Changes. All have disappeared on restart.

  Any suggestions?

I could not reproduce in my testing of 52.6.0 on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

  Any idea where the exception list is stored?

I thought that was mentioned in the support post?

Probably in network.jar, wherever that is. Probably omni.ja in the 
installation folder. There is a setting "network.jar.block-remote-files" 
in the Config Editor that is set to "true" for me.

  Yes. But I could find neither network.jar nor omni.ja in the TB folder.

The omni.jar file is in /usr/lib/thunderbird on my Ubuntu 16.04 system 
with Thunderbird 52.7.0.

See: 
<https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/About_omni.ja_%28formerly_omni.jar%29#Inspecting_omni.ja> 


The "network.jar.block-remote-files" pref might be this one just renamed 
for Thunderbird.

<http://kb.mozillazine.org/Network.jar.open-unsafe-types>

All of this is just guessing on my part, based on research I have done.

I always use the last "Allow remote content from " in the list when I 
click the Preferences button.

  I added that flag to <user.js>, set it to True. No difference.

  AIUI that flag only applies to JAR files.
  The flag "mail.ab_remote_content.migrated" seems to be only for
Address Books.

  As have I. In the past those exceptions were saved. No longer. Each
time I must "Allow remote content ...". Or just allow it all. (sigh)

Other than trying a new profile as suggested in that SUMO thread, you 
could try reinstalling Thunderbird since it appears network.jar is in 
omni.ja, which is in the installation folder.

I just finished testing the 52.8.0 release candidate on Windows and 
Linux. I had no loss of Remote Content settings.

Another thought occurred to me that they could possibly be stored in the 
permissions.sglite file in the profile.
