Cannot check "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed"

Hello,

Until recently, I was able to have Firefox automatically clear all my cookies at the end of a session, EXCEPT for the cookies for websites that I had specified. This was possible by:

  • Checking the "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" option under `Privacy and Security > Cookies and Site Data`
  • Setting the websties that I would like to keep cookies for, under `Privacy and Security > Cookies and Site Data > Manage exceptions`

Now, I simply can no longer use this feature. If I try checking the "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" option, then quitting Firefox, it seems to insist on unchecking the box, then changing another section of my privacy settings. Namely the `Privacy and Security > History > Clear history when Firefox closes` section becomes checked, and inside, `Cookies` is marked as something to be cleared at the end of each session. This is unhelpful, because checking the box here means that any exceptions I set in the aforementioned section is not respected, and ALL cookies are deleted.

Am I doing something wrong? If there is a way to get it back to how it used to behave, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Hi yutanagano51, In the Privacy and Security > History > Clear history when Firefox closes -> Settings be sure Site Settings is not checked. Your Exceptions will not be removed.

Note that version 102.0.1 includes a fix to stop the "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" from being unchecked.

Ah I did not realise there was an update out that fixed this problem (102.0.1). I am on a Fedora Linux system and it seems like their repositories do not have the 102.0.1 update yet. I will just let my browser save all cookies until the update comes to Fedora.

Thank you!

Hilfreich?
