Cookies Management , Manage permissions not working

Posted

Good day guys ,

Basically what I want is to make facebook.com logout when I close firefox and enter again. This should be possible by just going to >Cookies and site data >Manage permissions and blocking cookies for facebook.com but the problem is this option for firefox is completely useless , doesn't do absolutely anything as I'm still getting cookies saved from facebook.com , therefore every time I open firefox again my facebook is already logged in.

Is there any alternative solutions to this besides checking the box "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" ???

Because I don't want that either...cause that means I have to log into every site separately every time I open again firefox...I only want to do that for Firefox.

Thank you

Hi,

I think it is possible to create the functionality in a web extension (addon). To my knowledge, this does not exist, but all the necessary APIs are available

thank's

Hello Sharkyz,

Would you do this please :

When you're on that site, click on the 'i' in a circle, next to the padlock at the left side of the address bar.

Then click on the little black arrow on the dropdown and then on "More Information", which will take you to "Page Info".

Click on the 'Permissions" tab and scroll down to "Set Cookies". Uncheck "Use Default" and check "Block".

Then close and restart Firefox.

I hope that will work for you .....

You can make the Facebook cookies session cookies that expire automatically, but you need to make sure to close all Facebook tabs before you close Firefox because otherwise sessionstore will save the cookies.
