How do I prevent my cookie exception list from being programmatically amended?

I have Firefox set to never accept cookies, and I have an Exception list that specifically allows cookies from sites of my choice. Trouble is, this exception list is somehow being expanded with sites that I haven't included, and in some cases, sites that I've specifically blocked. For example, I have explicitly blocked cookies from Google. Yet, when I check the list, I find both the rule I entered blocking Google, and a new rule that I didn't enter specifying that Google may drop cookies for First Party Only.

Question: Who (besides me, the user) is allowed to expand the Exception list, and why? Seems to me this makes the promise of the list nearly worthless.

I'm running Firefox 33.1.1.

Dear FF volunteers,

Thank you for your service!!!

FF showed note that start process is slow and I should reset settings. I did so. And also deleted the profile and created a new profile just to be safe and start from a very clean slate.

The new profile worked for a few hours fine, but when I start Firefox now, it opens with a new profile, i.e. all bookmarks and extensions are gone, except for the Lastpass and Avast plugin.

Why?

I had installed these extensions: Lasspass, Avast antivirus, easy copy, Adblock plus, Bbuffer, Fireshot.

Is one of them corrupting the Firefox profile?

When I press the "Automatically add" button for Troubleshooting information here in this form, I get the error message that it can't connect to the mozilla server. I had the same problem when installing the lastpass extension. Which I then did my manually installing it.

I appreciate your help!

I just upgraded to a newer used laptop, the first to use Windows 7, for me. This is my first day, so I still have a lot to learn. I went to open Facebook, but the loggin page font was so tiny. It looked like the page had shrunk. Not all sites do this. YouTube will have a normal size video screen, but all the list at the right is similarly like a 2 point font, unreadable. I opened the control panel to adjust the font size there. It made all the Windows based pages quite large, but did not change my browser.

What??? I clicked the button on this page to automatically add a troubleshooter and a window opened to install Sinc or something. that didn't seem right?

I always maximize my Firefox windows, usually leaving a few open when I exit FF before nightly shutdown. I deliberately have turned on Session Restore in my FF Options to get back to where I was when I shut down FF. When I start FF next, I get all my expected windows & tabs, but all the FF windows are reduced in size instead of maximized as they were when I shut FF down.

It's a minor problem, but I consider it a nuisance. My previous session is NOT completely restored to its previous state.

I've been using Firefox for over 10 years, & I don't think this was always what happened. I running Firefox 33.1.1, but the problem has been around thru several releases.

I have been using FIREFOX for YEARS to access my email on comcast.net. Just about 3 days ago, I am unable to do so. I get the circle going round and round and round and never connecting. I can open it on Google Chrome and IE, so this leads me to believe it is a Firefox issue. Please help.

Same as above. Also when I open my scbglobal email via Firefox I have a similar problem where previously there were simple blank boxes to place a check in, and when I open an email attachment via Firefox to sbcglobal (AT&T DSL) the attachment is garbled. I have been a long time user of Firefox and never had any problems with Firefox or my email account. I contacted AT&T regarding the problem and of course they said it was a Firefox problem and said I needed to uninstall and reinstall Firefox which I have done twice now.

When I open my email via Internet Explorer I do not have any problems except that I want to use Firefox NOT EI.

HELP!

PS I have a screen shot of the opening Firefox page, how do I attach it?

I went to about:config and found browser.startup.homepage_override.mstone had 33.1.1 as the reason two startup pages were launching. I clicked modify and removed the 33.1.1 but it still put itself back in. I then saw browser.startup.homepage_override.buildID clicked Modify and cleared the number but it put itself back. This just started happening and now this appears in the address bar: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/33.1.1/whatsnew/?oldversion=23.0.1

Ordinarily this never happens but always starts happening after I update to the newest version.

Thank you in advance for your time and attention in this matter.

Sincerely,

I think I accidentally removed the Address field from the address bar (Remove from Toolbar...click...ooops!!!!). And Customize won't open, so I cannot access the list of buttons and fields to restore it. I don't want to reinstall or reset Firefox if I don't have to. How can I get the address field back and get Customize... working again? Thanks.
