How to SAVE new instructions added to the Firefox user preferences file?
 
With respect to your reaction...

I have seen this too, but this does not solve the problem. I need to
change the file anyway.

This is obvious.
But even if bring in the changes in the file AFTER closing Firefox,
Firefox seemingly overwrites those changes.

I did visit that website, however, I did not find there the answer to
my question.

The instructions you refer to do indeed only refer to 'user.js'.
However, 'prefs.js' is simply another name for 'user.js', according to
the last alinea of this page:

Respectfully yours,

But user.js is not overwritten, the way prefs.js is.*
