Google Keeps Asking

more options

Every time I start Firefox it (correctly) starts google. But every time google is called up it asks whether I accept a load of stuff. Whatever I answer (normally "accept") It still asks the same question next time. Is the answer being stored somewhere where Firefox deletes it? - so Google has to ask again?

Hi Graham, generally speaking, sites set a cookie so they know that they already prompted you for your consent. Firefox sends a site its cookies every time it requests a new file. If the cookie is missing because it got cleared, the site will ask again.

There are many reasons that cookies might get cleared when you close Firefox, including using private windows and setting Firefox to clear cookies. Most of these settings would be on the Settings page, Privacy & Security panel, but also some add-ons may clear cookies. Are you able to track it down?
