Cookie list does not appear
When I access "Cookies and Site Data" the "Manage Data" button does not appear. I usually have to refresh the page once or twice to activate it. Then, when I select it - the pop-up window for "Manage Cookies and Site Data" very often is blank. Again, I either have to wait some time or refresh to get the list of cookies. Is this normal?

Please follow the instructions to resolve your problem :
You can try Full Screen mode (F11) or zoom out the page (Ctrl + -) to see if that makes the buttons appear. Note that these buttons may not be visible when the Firefox window isn't high enough.

I hope resolve your problem then reply me back
I meant that the "Manage Data" button is viewable but it is greyed out and does not function right away. I need to refresh to get the button to activate.
No, I don't remember changing anything in regards to cache or cookies in about:config. I do not use a cache/cookie cleaner extension. However, I managed to fix the issue.
I took a closer look at about:support, specifically Important Modified Preferences. I found that browser.cache.offline.enable was set to false for reasons unknown. I set it to true, restarted FF, and now have access to Clear Data and Manage Data.
Again, I have no idea how this setting came to be, but at least it's fixed now.
Thanks for your help in this process.
