hi all i'm having a problem with firefox browser, its not keeping my website logged in. This does not occur after i close my browser but after a few hours of log in, even if i leave the browser opened and come again back later.

I've been using firefox for ages now and never really had this issue. It has only starting happening only recently, since early this week or last week the most.

I've also manually cleared all cookies/log in etc and updated firefox to the latest version maybe it helps, but nothing changed.

Please note that I do not clear history/active log in etc neither it is set up to do it automatically when i close browser also i do not have any 3rd party apps that forbid cookies. I had a firefox addon before but disabled it maybe it was interfering, but it still didnt resolve the problem.

any help much appreciated as it is getting quite irritating. Thanks in advance Lee

I use Kaltura to record lectures and post them to my course at the U of Utah on Canvas. This semester, Firefox will not allow me to open "my media" where the Kaltura recordings are posted on Canvas. I get the following message: It seems your browser is blocking 3rd party session cookies which are required for the Kaltura application. To resolve this issue, please update your settings to allow 3rd party cookies.

I copied the Kaltura web address 670542.kaf.kaltura.com that I can see in Chrome and pasted it into a Chrome browser and it goes to my recordings in Canvas when I use Chrome. The same site doesn't work in Firefox. How do I unblock Kaltura third party sessions? Thank you.

first i was thinking that this is only a Firefox addon issue (CookieMaster), but it might actually happen with other browsers too... although maybe it's still related to cookies only?

when i do some posting on some random forums, it always totally randomly cuts off half of the posts and even adds totally random phrases from the same post into totally random places, so the post gets either cut off or really hard to even understand because all of the text scrambling in it...

and that's not even all - now i edited some old wordpress post and then noticed that it has done the same exact word scrambling in it... so it's really hard to understand what is being said in 1 sentence again...

so why is it happening and how can i fix it?

(Opera and Chrome browser don't even allow to log in or do some other editing stuff in wordpress lol)

In Firefox "about:config" there are 2 separate entries: "network.cookie.lifetimePolicy" (which has a numerical entry) and "network.cookie.lifetimePolicyd" which has only a true/false choice.

There is only the one character difference in their names, but an obvious difference in the setting.

What is the difference between these 2 "about:config" entries? In particular, what does "network.cookie.lifetimePolicyd" do?

I have Firefox v. 73.0.1 installed on a 64 bit Win 7 Pro SP1 computer with i5 processor and 8 GB RAM.

Immediately after updating to version 74.0, I noticed Firefox had logged me out from all sites I usually am automatically logged into at the start of a session. It was not the first time I encountered this problem, as it had been happening at irregular intervals, and found that it was caused by firefox replacing the "cookies.sqlite" file in my profile folder with a new one, while also dubbing the old one "cookies.sqlite.bak". I always resolved the problem by:

-Closing Firefox

-Deleting the recently created "cookies.sqlite" in my profile folder

-Renaming "cookies.sqlite.bak" into "cookies.sqlite"

-(Usually) Creating a copy of the .bak file and keeping it in a folder as insurance, in case I found no recent .bak the next time it happened or it got corrupted somehow

After doing this, upon starting firefox I would find all my cookies in place and myself logged in all sites I cared about (I set it up so that firefox restores a long-running, multi-windowed session at startup).

On a side note, I was always able to know whether my "cookies.sqlite" file had been rewritten by checking its size: if it had been just created, it would always be 512 Kb; the backup .bak file is instead 1.50 Mb.


Onto the problem at hand: after updating to 74.0 and finding that I lost all cookies and logins, I repeated the process highlighted above, as usual. It didn't resolve the problem though: I still didn't recover any cookie even though I switched the "good" .bak file with the newly created "cookies.sqlite". Upon starting firefox, instead of loading my 1.50 Mb .sqlite it keeps immediately renaming it .bak and creating its own cookies.sqlite. I even tried using a slightly older .bak, one that I had successfully switched before: the result was the same.

I am at my wits' end: I checked and tried various cookie and privacy settings, but since firefox updated it seems determined to shun my old cookie backup in favor of creating its own empty, useless file. There also doesn't seem to be any recent documentation on this problem I can find. I even considered opening and checking both .sqlite and .bak files for any obvious differences, but I'm afraid I just don't know how.


Those cookies are critical for my navigation. "Major Annoyance" wouldn't even begin to describe starting a session without those.

How to Enable 3rd party cookies for Kaltura Media Application in Firefox Nightly 94.0a1

I am unable to enable 3rd party session cookies, which are required for the Kaltura application, in D2L Brightspace for online education courses in Firefox Nightly 94.0a1.

I have tried Kaltura application specific, and my educational institution specific troubleshooting with no change. I have tried changing settings in Firefox Nightly's Privacy and Security Enhanced Tracking Protections and by Managing Exceptions in Cookies and Site Data with no changes.

On the webpage of my course material there is a message that reads: "It seems your browser is blocking 3rd party session cookies which are required for the Kaltura application. To resolve this issue, please update your settings to allow 3rd party cookies." under Course Tour Video

I have further troubleshot this issue by managing the same exceptions in Google Chrome where the content is working. I have retrieved the relevant content URLs from the Google Chrome browser Kaltura video and cookie info and used them in Firefox Nightly to allow all appropriate exceptions with no changes.

After all troubleshooting, I have took the step of clearing Cookies, Site Data, History and restarting Firefox Nightly with no changes on the course page and met with the same error message.

How can I resolve this, because I would like to use Firefox Nightly as my preferred browser for my course work?

A couple weeks ago I started getting the "We've detected a problem with your cookie settings." error message for gmail after restarting my computer and opening firefox. I can fix the problem and get into gmail by clearing all gmail related cookies, but the same problem occurs next time I restart, which means logging back into all my accounts. How can I stop this from recurring? I have cookies enabled and there's nothing in my settings I can find blocking gmail cookies.

I have cookies-blocking enabled through Firefox. Often, when I go to websites, I'll see banners that indicate the sites use cookies and that say by clicking anywhere on page, I am agreeing to the use of cookies. When I click on the page and keep looking at it, does the page indeed apply cookies to my computer/my work or do my Firefox settings prevent this from happening?

Hey, since FF 64 B13 there are some changes which broke our APP but I cannot find a solution. When we log into our internal website, we are immediately logged out again as soon as I click a link there. You can see that after loading the page, a control cookie "CmdCookie" is reset to an initial value so that you are directed to the login page. All other cookies remain unchanged. With FF64 Beta 12 everything worked without any problems. Does anyone know where the problem could be? If I turn off all the chaches then I can log in, but sporadically I keep being kicked out.

Thanks in advance and have a nice day! Max

When I access "Cookies and Site Data" the "Manage Data" button does not appear. I usually have to refresh the page once or twice to activate it. Then, when I select it - the pop-up window for "Manage Cookies and Site Data" very often is blank. Again, I either have to wait some time or refresh to get the list of cookies. Is this normal?
