(I don't know why but my reply won't show up. So I'm posting the same thing here.)

So I made more research and made my question simpler. FYI I reseted my firefox and since then I've changed settings only via about:preferences and user.js.


Situation A:

(1) Set these preferences.

  • permissions.default.geo =2
  • network.cookie.lifetimePolicy =0
  • privacy.sanitize.sanitizeOnShutdown =true

(2) Go to https://www.jma.go.jp/jp/highresorad/index.html

  • You'll see a pop-up message that says "位置情報を取得できませんでした。".

(3) Check the box down below (今後このメッセージを表示しない。), and close that message. Then press f5.

  • You'll see that the pop-up message won't show up anymore.

(4) Open a new tab. Then close the previous tab. Revisit the site.

  • You'll see that the pop-up message doesn't show up.

(5) Close all Firefox windows. Then open Firefox and visit the site.

  • Expected: The cookies should have deleted. The pop-up message will show up.
  • Actual Result: The pop-up message doesn't show up.

(6) Do Ctrl-Shift-Delete. Then press F5.

  • You'll see the pop-up message shows up this time.


Situation B:

(1) Set these preferences.

  • permissions.default.geo =2
  • network.cookie.lifetimePolicy =2
  • privacy.sanitize.sanitizeOnShutdown =true

(2) Go to https://www.jma.go.jp/jp/highresorad/index.html

  • You'll see a pop-up message that says "位置情報を取得できませんでした。".

(3) Check the box down below (今後このメッセージを表示しない。), and close that message. Then press f5.

  • You'll see that the pop-up message won't show up anymore.

(4) Open a new tab. Then close the previous tab. Revisit the site.

  • Expected: You'll see that the pop-up message doesn't show up.
  • Actual Result: You'll see that the pop-up message does show up.

(5) Close all Firefox windows. Then open Firefox and visit the site.

  • You'll see that the pop-up message shows up.

(6) Do Ctrl-Shift-Delete. Then press F5.

  • You'll see the pop-up message shows up this time.


(Original post below.)

Hello.

(Sorry about messy English.)

(1) I set preferences as below.

   network.cookie.lifetimePolicy =0 (accept cookies normally)
   privacy.clearOnShutdown.* =true (define what data is cleared when Firefox is closed)
   privacy.sanitize.sanitizeOnShutdown =true (make Firefox clear the data when it's closed)

These settings should make Firefox clear all my cookies when closed. But Firefox kept some of it. Firefox cleared the login state, but some site data such as volume control on Nicovideo's video player were kept. That means when you login to the site and watch a video at 17% volume, then close Firefox without clicking the logout link, reopen the same page, you'll see yourself logged out, but when you login to the site, you'll see the volume is set to 17% on the video player, not default 100%.

(2) Now I changed one setting.

   network.cookie.lifetimePolicy =2 (cookies are now for current session only)

This didn't work as intended either. Firefox sure cleared all the cookies, but it did in a weird way. The login states were working as intended. But some site data are not sheared between tabs. That means when you watch a video at 27% volume and close the tab, then revisit the same page, you'll see the volume on the video player is now set to the default 100%.

(3) And finally I found the one caused this.

   dom.ipc.processCount =1 (Firefox must run on a single process)
   network.cookie.lifetimePolicy =2 (same)
   privacy.sanitize.sanitizeOnShutdown =true (same)

I honestly don't understand why this works, but this way everything seems to be working properly. All cookies are sheared between tabs and they are cleared when Firefox is closed.

My question is:

(a) Why did this happen? Especially the situation (1) makes no sense to me. Why Firefox left some cookies when I told it to clear the cookies on shutdown?

(b) Is there any way to share data between processes? I don't want my Firefox to be single-processed slow browser.

Thanks.

The latest is I can't search from the search bar with a new tab. This is after doing a migration. I erased Firefox and reinstalled the app and all of my data was still there. I reopened the session as if I had just closed a session and I was logged into gmail. So clearly Mozilla's instructions on deleting the app on MAC doesn't work. Recycle bin. How do you literally delete the app?

Hoping deletion will solve the issue of not being able to hit enter in the search bar to perform a google search, or click the arrow. Nothing works.

Further, I'm logged into this browser, yet when the tabs disappear I can't reaccess them. What's the point of logging into a browser if it doesn't remember the tabs?

Up until a few months ago I was able to read and leave my own comments on a local news website. Not sure what changed, but that option is gone. I had read that it was a Facebook social plug-in which allowed the comments to work so I assume that's where my problem is. It does work when I use IE, and I did find a site that lets me comment using a workaround: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/comments/ (I'm not a developer so I can't figure out how to fix things from the info given here). The news site I am trying to make comments on is: https://www.channel3000.com/ At the bottom of the page with the news article where I'd normally see comments I now just see the word COMMENTS twice (see attached image). I did clear my cache, delete cookies for the news site and for Facebook (and then pressed the "accept all cookies" button), and disabled plug-ins one at at time to see if they were the issue. No luck.

Can anyone help please?

This might be a stupid question and I'm shocked that I noticed this only now as a long time Firefox user... If I use the location bar to search for something Firefox opens the Google result page, but disables the "back"-button. So I can't get back to the page I've been visiting before. I've been wondering for a long time why sometimes clicking back doesn't lead me back to a page I know I was visiting earlier, now I finally figured out that this is because I was using the search from location bar. So my question: Is this the normal behavior or a bug in my installation? Is there anything I can do to fix this?

I bought a new computer. I read about how to transfer over your profile. On my old computer I located the folder, and went up one level as it said. I had 2 files there, not 1 .I saved these files. I installed firefox on my new computer and followed the same steps to locate the folder. It also had 2 files, with different names. I STUPIDLY deleted these two files and put in the two I had copied from my old compter. Turned offirefox and turned it back on. It would notopen because it said it couldnot locate my profile folder. I uninstalled Firefox, and reinstalled it. I still get the same error.

Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible. I thought uninstalling and reinstalling it would solve the first part of the program but as of now, I have no Firefox.

Any suggestions from anyone.
