 redownloaded and reinstalled (11/9/2017). Then, not only did the security
 slider forget which level I set, but Tor no longer remembered whether I
 wanted to use a bridge or not (every time I restarted, I was presented
 with the settings screen). Thinking my Firefox install (with NoScript)
 might be the problem, I also uninstalled Firefox (I had 3 versions
 installed somehow), restarted and reinstalled Tor a few times, and
 eventually I got Tor to where I remembers my connection preferences.
 However, it still does not remember my security slider setting (and the
 NoScript icon does not show up now).
 > Hm. That is weird. Where did you put your freshly downloaded Tor

 I put it in Desktop, like normal for WIndows

 So when Tor browser updated to 7.0.10, I downloaded and installed the
 update and when Tor opened I got the "what changed in this update" page as
 normal. However, Tor did not remember that it had showed me the page:
 every time I restarted, I got that page.

 But I fixed the problem: I deleted Firefox, deleted the Firefox profile
 folders in %AppData%/Local and %AppData%/Roaming, removed MalwareBytes
 anti-exploit beta and anti-ransomware beta, and now Tor saves my settings
 as normal.
