Since the only other thread about this was closed by the powers that be, I will open it for Version 44. What happened to the "Ask me every time" option for cookies. It is the major reason that I have been using Firefox for many years. All there is now really is to allow cookies Always or Never. I never had a problem until V44 when I noticed I was no longer being asked the question to allow the setting of a cookie by new websites. I looked at the reasons given for the removal and it is bogus. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=469260 The only one who hit the nail on the head was: Charles Evans 2012-03-27 17:25:41 PDT

Someone who does not want to be bombarded by these questions should simply turn it OFF. Those who had it turned ON (like me and countless other loyal Firefox users), have no problem with it. Now that it has been removed, the question becomes, is there a way to get it back through an easy workaround? And PLEASE, don't write this issue off because it is "a developer issue" as I read in the previous thread about this disaster. It is not. It is a privacy issue and my bet is that ALL who selected this option, want it back!

Dammit. There's a visual block above that to tell users to stop scrolling since you have reached the bottom of the page. The site owner may want to look into that...
