There are four alternative options in the dropdown for Enhanced Tracking Protection>Cookies:

  1. 1. Cross-site and social media trackers
  2. 2. Cookies from unvisited web sites
  3. 3. All third party cookies
  4. 4. All cookies

My question: Are these listed in order of scope, meaning more powerful and comprehensive options as one reads down the list? If "yes", then: What types of cookies are further blocked by going from #1 above to #2? What types of cookies are further blocked by going from #2 to #3? What types of cookies are further blocked by going from #3 to #4? Answers to the above would be helpful in deciding which level of blocking to choose.

I'm using a completely clean (reinstalled) version of firefox. I'm not logged into a profile. I'm still having the same problem.

If I go onto twitter for the first time, it loads fine and I can move around pages.

As soon as I leave the site, then return, none of the internal twitter timelines load - I get the twitter message 'something has gone wrong'.

If I delete all my cookies and revisit twitter, it works. But again, if I leave the site and come back immediately, the problem comes back and nothing loads.

Anyone experienced this/know what I can do?

Thanks

In my Cookies and Site Data, under "last used" it says there's a whole bunch of cookies being accessed every time I launch Firefox. Even if I launch Firefox with no open tabs, cookies are still being accessed when I launch.

I find this deeply disturbing! Cookies surely should not be able to activate until you start visiting websites?

Can anyone please explain how and why are these cookies being accessed?

I have consciously transitioned from Chrome to FF for Privacy reasons, but find myself with a problem now. When i close the browser i have set it to delete all the cookies. I want however to make exceptions for certain sites like i did with Chrome so that when i go back to LinkedIn or YouTube i don't have to go through the 2-step login process which is quite annoying if you have to do that multiple times per day as you can imagine. not having been able to find a definite answer on how to do that (yes, i did read multiple support articles) i turn to you to for help Is there a whitelist option to handle exceptions per domain for deleting cookies?

My location in eBay keeps changing. It doesn't matter how many times I change it just resets to an old postcode. I removed this address from my eBay account, and I've cleared cookies in Mozilla but it keeps resetting. I've tried signing out of my Mozilla account and reinstalling Mozilla but it is still doing it. I'm pretty sure that Mozilla has stored the address somewhere but I have no idea how to get rid of it. It's been like this for two years now.

Thanks.

I want to see exactly what cookies a particular site has set. I'm sure there used to be a way in earlier versions of FF (I'm on 70.0.1), but it seems to have disappeared. I don't want to delete all cookies from that site, just to examine them and if necessary delete them individually.

Firefox is constantly logging me out of webpages even while I am on the page. For example, if I'm in gmail I will login and 2 minutes later it will log me out, even if I'm on the same page. The same happens with many other websites. I've been watching a YouTube video and been logged out halfway through the video too. For Salesforce I have to receive confirmation emails to confirm that I am the right person logging into the account. I've tried other solutions on these forums but nothing seems to work. I have my cookies to save and use custom settings for my history. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
