This is caused by "dom.storage.enabled = false".
The setting is recommended by Tails as well as WildersSecurity1.
As a user you can set this back to true and/or use a user.js file in ~/.mozilla to override permanently, including in future updates. However, it comes with many privacy and security concerns. Due to the principles of nonprism, many important security features have been added2. Using [libre] will allow you more features at the expense of your-privacy.
