I know that cookies are stored in a SQLITE database. I use a Linux distro and as per the documentation I viewed the cookie file at location '~/.mozilla/firefox/PROFILE_FOLDER/cookies.sqlite' and I can view all the contents as expected.'

However, these two things are bugging me if someone can please help me:

(i) SQLITE isn't a server connected database (it just offers minimal functionality) and since cookies are something accessed by server side from http headers with every request how does that work out?

(ii) Session storage key value pairs are stored in '~/.mozilla/firefox/PROFILE_FOLDER/webappsstore.sqlite' however, when I create session storage key value pairs and without closing the tab if I try viewing the session key; I can't find the key value pairs. I tried with Local storage and it works however with session storage it does not show me the key value pair in database.

i keep getting 17,179,869,184 GB of cookies exactly on different sites (google, intuit.com, youtube.com, and i think facebook.com) - this happens within 24 hours of clearing the cookies.

I’ve attached an image. I cleared the cookies and cache within the last 24 hours. I have been on both youtube and intuit today but not extensively.

I have ad blocker active on both youtube and intuit.

Google Drive downloads "don't redirect correctly" / Download failure

Hello. I've been having issues with downloading any type of file from Google Drive on Firefox. The issues I'm experiencing directly match what is mentioned in [support article] but this user uses Windows. 'I'm getting this problem on Arch Linux instead. Outside of Linux, I do not experience any issues with downloads from Google Drive.

So far, I've tried all the methods; From downloading from a private window, to disabling cookies -- I've even completely disabled any protection settings and add-ons such as uBlock Origin/DDG, but also re-installing Firefox. In the latter it kept my data, so it might not have been a fresh re-install.

What could be the cause of this problem? This issue does not seem to happen on other browsers. While I can use that as a workaround, I'd like to know the cause to prevent it from happening in the future.

Thanks!

Why is it so hard to keep cookies and let Firefox delete others? Privacy is the hallmark of Firefox, and yet this simple task is so difficult that I have completely given up. It should be so simple that anyone can do it. Take a look at Cookie Quick Manager which lets you select right off the extension area. With Firefox, I have to dig down into the menus, then actually key in a web site. Fixing this and continuing to enhance cookie management should be top of mind.

I am having problems clearing Facebook cookies and data storage. I have cleared the cache numerous times and always FB is at the top of the list with 0 cookies but 17,179,869,184GB Data Storage. I delete that as well and it comes back. I have run my Smartscan and optimized. This showed up recently and it makes Firefox very, very slow. What are some other options to try

I have already checked the cookies are enabled and set to never be deleted. Other websites I use stay signed in, this only happens for google/youtube once every few days. I never had this problem in other browsers aswell so I doubt it's an account problem. I am using a couple of extensions, adguard and ublock origin, but the issue was still there when I disabled them.

It is a followup of a previous question and your suggestions did not work. May be I did not explained myself. The issue is that everytime I launch Firefox a "google page" pops up asking me either to accept or to personalize the use of cookies and whatever I choose it is not “memorized” so that the following time I launch firefox it asks again the same question. (I have google as my default search engine and I have a google account). Thanks! Giulio

A few Firefox versions ago now when I opened Facebook it showed my saved e-mail address to login, and not my password which I wanted NOT saved and still do not want it saved. But now each time I log out of Firefox (and Facebook) and later go into them again it still requires entry of the e-mail address (doesn't "remember" it) - I'm an elderly user and not into the depths of the Firefox settings, but guess if someone could walk me through exactly step by step what I need to do I would be so grateful. I guess it is something to do with "cache" settings??

Every time I close firefox the cookies file in my profile folder "cookies.sqlite" makes a backup of itself "cookies.sqlite.bak" so when I open firefox again I start out fresh unless I change name of the file back to what it supposed to be then I could launch firefox back with the old cookies with no visible issues.

So, how do I make it so the firefox doesn't automatically make a backup of my old cookies and replace it a new file?
