Thanks very much for your response, but have seen that and still can't find the place on mozilla firefox where can change settings....I did so a few days ago, but can't find it again now...I turned cookies off etc. and now everywhere I go wants me to verify who I am etc...saves nothing as it use to, but it used to save TOO MUCH!? That's why I tried to stop the cookies, but it appears I needed them!?

You can open the Options page and go to the Privacy & Security tab.

  • Options/Preferences -> Privacy & Security

You can also paste about:preferences#privacy in the location bar to open this page.


Detail like websites remembering you (log you in automatically) is stored in a cookie.

You can use these steps to make a website recognize and remember you:

  • create a cookie allow exception with the proper protocol (https:// or http://) to make a website remember you

You can check that you aren't clearing important cookies.

  • using "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" keeps cookies with an allow exception
  • using "Clear history when Firefox closes" to clear cookies clears all cookies including cookies with an allow exception you may want to keep
  • Options/Preferences -> Privacy & Security
    Cookies and Site Data: "Manage Exceptions"

In case you use "Clear history when Firefox closes" or otherwise clear history.

  • do not clear the Cookies
  • do not clear the Site Preferences
  • clearing "Site Preferences" clears exceptions for cookies, images, pop-up windows, and software installation and exceptions for passwords and other website specific data
  • clearing "Cookies" will remove all cookies including cookies with an allow exception you may want to keep
