This article explains why you are always asked to log in to Pocket when you want to view your Pocket list of saved pages. For more information about logging into Pocket, see Sign up for Pocket with your Firefox Account and Log in to Pocket with your Firefox Account.

If you select the Never Remember History setting from the first drop-down within the History section on the Browser Privacy page, it may seem like the right thing to do but you may not understand the impact of this change. However, when Firefox is set to never remember history, Private Browsing mode is enabled. As a result, when trying to view your Pocket list, you'll be prompted to log in to the site and no cookies will be saved.

To fix this issue and enable Firefox to save cookies for Pocket:

  1. Click the menu button New Fx Menu Fx57Menu and choose Options.Preferences.
  2. Click Privacy & Security from the left menu.
    The Browser Privacy page displays.
  3. Select Use Custom settings for history from the first drop-down within the History section.

  4. Deselect the Always use private browsing mode checkbox if it is already selected.

  6. Go to the Preferences > Privacy & Security page.
  7. Click the Manage Permissions… button in the Cookies and Site Data section.

    The Exceptions - Cookie and Site Data pop-up displays.
  8. Enter https://getpocket.com in the Address of website field.
  9. Click the Allow button.
