I've tried clearing cookies, settings them to always be allowed, re-enabling web-rtc, disabling enchanced protection, nothing works. IF i close the active tab with chatgpt even momentarily i will always have to re-log in again when i reopen it

For the past few days, Firefox has been freezing up. By playing around with it, I've found that it's still functioning, but it ceases to update visually. I'm not having the same issues with any other program on my PC, I don't see the icon to update Firefox, and I've restarted my PC a few times along the way.

When this happens, it's not just website contents that freeze, but Firefox's UI as well. Hovering a tab doesn't highlight it. Clicking the hamburger doesn't appear to open the menu. Etc...

If I have a video playing when this happens, I will continue to hear it, but the frame the video is on stays in place.

If I click on another open tab, it will still show me the tab it visually froze on, but if I end Firefox with Windows Task Manager & reopen it, the session saves the tab switch, so it's still taking mouse inputs. I've been able to do similar with keyboard inputs by clicking on the address bar and entering a new URL. I don't see anything as I type it, but after using Task Manager to close and reopen Firefox, the site I entered is there.

I can switch between open Firefox windows when this happens without issue, even on the same monitor, and if I pull up something else in front of Firefox and then switch to Firefox it will still display what was last visible in that Firefox window while the bug is occurring.

I have tried disabling add-ons, and actually found that disabling some of them made it happen *more* frequently, not less. Privacy Badger, Auto Tab Discard, & Ad Nauseum specifically. Switching from Ad Nauseum to AdBlock Plus or uBlock Origin neither increases nor decreases the frequency. My other add-ons, like Duplicate Tabs Closer, haven't had any effects on frequency that I can see. With all of my Add-ons disabled, Task Manager shows double the number of Firefox processes.

I tried to clear my history, but I can only select my last 1 hour of history, as clicking on the dropdown box to select another duration will cause the problem to occur & I can't see the other options in the box to select a longer option. The dropdown to select a topic for this question has the same issue.

These are some actions that risk causing the bug to start, but aren't 100% reproducible, and the list is not exhaustive:

  • Trying to click & drag to pull a tab into becoming its own window or to move the tab into another window. (Firefox does not save this movement if it causes the bug, so closing and reopening it will keep the tab in the window it was already in.) This seems to work fine for some sites, but specifically tends to break if it's a YouTube tab.
  • Mid-clicking to open a link in a new tab, if done on several links in a row
  • Clicking on a UI element, like the hamburger button
  • Right clicking on an image and selecting "copy"
  • Right clicking within Firefox
  • Opening Firefox

I have not seen the bug occur at any time that I was not actively providing some input to the Firefox program.

On our online application we are facing with some strange behavior for a small percentage of our firefox users (<1%).

When doing oauth2 authorization, after generation of the authentication token we redirect to another platform but we are detecting that for a small percentage of Firefox the cookie (my_auth_cookie) with the auth token is not present.



GET: https://www.mywebsite.com/application/login Response:

new location https://www.mywebsite.com/otherapplication/redirect


set-cookie: my_auth_cookie expires=Mon, 04 Dec 2023 13:49:15 GMT; domain=.mywebsite.com; path=/; secure; samesite=lax; httponly


      2. GET https://www.mywebsite.com/otherapplication/redirect
          Set-cookie: mycookie: value
          Host: www.mywebsite.com


In cookie tab I see my_auth_cookie (value: xxxx, domain: .mywebsite.com, expires: Mon, 04 Dec 2023 13:49:15 GMT, httponly: checked, secure: checked,SameSite: Lax, partitionkey: empty, Priority: medium



I’ve tried to replicate but without success (with multiple extensions, including multi-account containers), with multiple configurations of Total Cookie Protection.

Again, this only seems to be happening to a very limited number of firefox users but for these, it happens 100% of the time. We see it occurring for versions 119 and 120 but now and then for older versions.

Feedback reports no extensions&addons.


Any ideas on what we could be dealing with? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

almost all are Facebook storage. I'm feeling a little reluctant to delete all site data. If I clear all cookies and site data will that fix the issue? will the issue re-occur?

How to continuously reset history cookies/cache for one website.

Is there a way to continuously clear cookies and cache data for one domain or website? Or reworded, a way to not record cookies or cache data for one domain or website?

I have managed to find the article to clear cookies and cache data for the domain but have not been able to find out how to do this continuously without having to go into the settings each time to clear this history.

Kind regards

I see a similar question on the forums from March 2021, but I'm having this problem now: when I go into icloud.com, it keeps asking for authentication - i.e. it presents a 6-digit code which goes to my phone/ipad, and I have to put it into the browser. After that, I'm prompted "Do you want to Trust this browser" to which I ALWAYS say "Yes", but it doesn't seem to work; the next day, if I try icloud again, it does it all over, like the "Trust" option is ignored. In settings, "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" is unchecked, Clicking "Manage Data" shows that cookies for icloud.com are saved. I've just added icloud.com into Exceptions to Allow to use cookies/site data, though I wouldn't think I'd NEED that if I'm never deleting them. I tried this with Chrome, and the Trust DID work; I can sign in with that browser and not have to put in the code.

What's up with that?

I would like Firefox to remember exceptions and store specific cookies that I need for the Microsoft authenticator, and other two-stage logins. Whatever setting I choose (untick delete cookiex and sitedata, assign websites to manage exceptions etc) upon closing Firefox everything is deleted, always. This means I can't use any authenticator to remember me when I want it to do so.

I used a third party cookie extension (Cookie AutoDelete) to whitelist some sites and it worked perfectly fine until an apparent recent update by Firefox. I am on Firefox 101.0.1 on Mac.

Any ideas?

Every time I would try to log in it would always redirect me to a website that contain only the words "Expected redirect cookie to exist"

It's really annoying because it only happens on Firefox. For some context I just re-installed Windows 11 and I heard from another post that re-installing Windows 11 will help but I do not want to go through the whole process again.

I have already tried:
  • Turning off DNS over HTTPS
  • Turning Off Proxy
  • Clearing Cache and Cookies
  • Reinstalling Firefox

Hi,

I'm using WhatsApp Web on the FireFox browser, I can't paste a website URL into the message line.

I can paste anything else - text, images,...

I do not encounter this issue while using WhatsApp Web on Google Chrome.

This is a new issue, I've been working like this for years and it srarted a couple of days ago. I cleared my cache, restarted the laptop and turned off add-ins.

Any ideas? Thanks, Gaby

Hi,

I am a developer currently working on an open-source solution called GeoNetwork (https://github.com/geonetwork/core-geonetwork/). This application has a Java backend that uses a JSESSIONID cookie to track user sessions. One instance of the application can be accessed anonymously here: https://sextant.ifremer.fr/Donnees/Catalogue

The session cookie is set on the first request to the backend with the following parameters:

Domain: "sextant.ifremer.fr" expirationDate: "Session" HostOnly: true HttpOnly: true SameSite: "None" Secure: true

This application theoretically allows login in from a different origin. For example from https://www.milieumarinfrance.fr/Acces-aux-donnees/Catalogue, which under the hood points to the same backend. We noticed recently that when accessing the application from a different origin in Firefox, the network requests aimed at the "sextant.ifremer.fr" host *do not carry any existing session cookie*, thus rendering authenticated access impossible.

The existing session cookie is correctly used when I add an "allow" exception for the sextant.ifremer.fr origin in the cookies settings of Firefox (see attached screenshot in French). So I figure that it's Firefox that decides not to use any existing cookie when on this origin.

Is there any way to indicate to Firefox that this cookie is legitimate and that it is needed for essential functionalities, without relying on the user allowing the cookie explicitly?

Thanks a lot in advance!

When I go to clear the cache, browsing history, cookies, etc. the only options we have are "Today", a few even smaller time periods (1, 2, 4 hours), or "Everything"! What's up with that? Every other browser offers at least the option of "past 7 days" or some other time period that goes further back than one day, without having to clear "Everything", don't others find this to be arbitrarily limited? I can't even delete cache from yesterday, much less a few days earlier...
