How can I retain cookies from selected sites ie: My Bank and have all others deleted when I close foxfire?
When logging into my bank I receive a code by phone that allows me to log into my account, along with the option to register my computer with the bank so I can avoid getting the code by phone every time I log in. Whenever I end my Foxfire session I have cookies, history, downloads, searches and login all deleted automatically. There was I way I could do this in past, but after a recent refresh of Foxfire this no longer takes place. I've either forgotten how to do it or something has changed.

You can add a cookie exception about this website: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/cookies-information-websites-store-on-your-computer#w_cookie-settings
You can let the cookies expire when Firefox is closed to make them session cookies.
- Firefox/Tools > Options > Privacy > "Use custom settings for history" > Cookies: Keep until: "I close Firefox"
You can create a cookie" "Allow" exception to keep specific cookies.
In case you use "Clear history when Firefox closes" or otherwise clear history.
- do not clear the Cookies
- do not clear the Site Preferences
- clearing "Site Preferences" clears exceptions for cookies, images, pop-up windows, and software installation and exception for password and other website specific data
- clearing cookies will remove all selected cookies including cookies with an Allow exception you may want to keep
