Programatically set cookie from command-line before Firefox first-startup

I'm working on a project where we run Firefox in a container and I need to insert a cookie into the sqlite cookie DB to ensure it's available when Firefox is started. I have some script that runs before Firefox is started and know that I can create a profile on the command line e.g. `firefox --headless -CreateProfile foo` However this simply creates the profile dir and does not create the sqlite cookie DB or relevant tables. Is there a way to force creation of the cookie DB from the command line? Ideally, I want to create the Firefox profile & sqlite cookie DB at the point I build my docker image. The cookie would be inserted when the container runs, before Firefox is started. Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks!

Have upgraded to Firefox 88.0 on Mac. Have also recently cleared history, but have reinstated the web sites where I want my cookies retained.

In the past, I could quit Firefox and when I next boot it, my daily sites like Yahoo and Ebay do not require password log-in since I have "exempted" them from being cleared on the previous Firefox quit.

I do use "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" - but this is where the exceptions should come into play.

Until just recently this all worked fine. Now it does not and am required to re-log in after a fresh boot.

Any suggestions? Thanks. - jr

I use soundcloud often, and have recently had the issue of the website not being able to load after i launch it the first time. Autofill passwords works fine, it loads with no issue, but then when i try to load it again it's unable to. if i delete the website's cookies i'm able to load into it again, otherwise it just won't work. I've completely cleared out my cache and that helped for a little while but the issue still persists. Is there any known instances of this/ any plugins i can use to always remove the cookies of a specific website, as that may be a viable workaround.

Hi,

I've tried multiple times to clear the cache from Preferences by "Clearing Data" but the count still reads that there is cache. I made sure to refresh but that wasn't the issue. I also tried restarting firefox.

Next, I quit firefox, went to ~/Library/Caches/Firefox/Profiles/ since I'm using a mac and I deleted the cache2 folder. I emptied the trash to boot. There were still files in the cache!

Currently, the cache is 535KB. In About:Cache, Disk cache reads 229 KiB and 11 entries. However, I can't see the entries when I click on "List Cache Entries."

This has never happened to me before. Please help me clear the cache!

Only today, I updated to 78.10.0esr. I don't know if that's the issue.

Hello everyone. Like the title says I am seeing a lot of these type cookies being left over in Ccleaner after I close Firefox. (Please see attached image.) I have had as many as over 300 of these type cookies in Ccleaner so apparently Firefox is not clearing out these types of cookies when I close my browser like it is suppose to do with cookies etc. etc. Could someone shed some light on this whether this is now normal to see these type cookies for websites that I visit and why Firefox does not remove them when I close the browser and if not what can I do to remedy this. I have read that Firefox has enhanced its tracking prevention and was wondering if this could be the result.

Hello,

I have a problem with login on a few selected sites. On some sites I cannot login at all, on other sites I can log in, but as soon as I don't interact with the website for a few seconds the login is lost and the next click on any link shows me a "not logged in"-state.

For example on my companies Outlook Web Access site, when I enter my account info and click on "Sign In", it briefly shows a loading screen and then takes me back to the login site. On another webiste I can log in and use the website without problems, but not clicking anything for more than ~5 seconds leads to the login being lost. The strange thing is: in incognito mode everything works fine on both sites!?

Firefox is 87.0, I have already deleted all cookies and stored data.

What is available to the visited site in Private Browsing in a new window? Private browsing does not save cookies or history, but does it make previously saved cookies and history from un-private browsing available?

I ask because there is advice in a couple of YouTube videos about how to search for keywords to use in your new videos. This advice is that when hunting for potential popular search keywords, using a new private window to do the search will cause YouTube to do an "unbiased" search. That is, it will not be able to look at your YouTube history to determine viewing preferences when it presents you with recommended (auto complete) searches.

(Oops. I just realized I am doing this in a private window. I hope that doesn't matter.)

Thanks, Tom

I may have to stop using Firefox if I can't resolve this problem

After a few weeks certain Ebay pages start to not display correctly - writing goes small, moves to the left, big black arrows appear, other pages are alright

I know if I clear 'all cookies' it will solve the problem - but then I have to reload passwords etc on all the sites I visit

I've tried

  • switching of tracking protection on the ebay page
  • selecting and deleteing all Ebay cookies under 'managed data'

but neither solve the problem

The only solution I know to work is to clear all cookies - but I really can't be doing this every couple of weeks

So, having been with Firefox since the end of Netscape Navigator... I have had one major irritation that is as follows:

Why is it not possible to simply save a cookie somewhere in a little piggy vault, and forgoing any other setting, and will save that cookie (specifically my banking cookies).

And be able to clear other data when closing the browser without losing said cookie(s)

no need for response, I am not interested in reading another, well, check a, but not b, or if you use r, then uncheck x.... I am not out to recreate a bomb, just wanted to simply get into my bank

Hello,

I got wondering about how I can save cookies from certain websites that I frequent like my e-mail for instance so I wouldn't have to type in my information again and again after clearing the cookies data in Firefox from time to time so it won't slow down or something. I tried putting in the full website address in the Manage Exceptions under Privacy & Security but still see the cookie(s) from that website on the list. Hope I'm making some sense here and that one of you might know something as in how I can get around this. Thank you in advance if you reply to this post.
