When signing on to Gmail, I have to go through dual authentication. Are there privacy/cookies settings I can set so that Gmail remembers me?

Posted

I recently switched to Firefox from Chrome. Gmail is now putting me through dual authentication. I don't mind signing on with userid/password, but would like to set up Firefox so that Gmail doesn't ask for dual authentication. Is there a way to do this?

In about:preferences#privacy

do you have "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" checked? Or specific gmail instructions to block it's cookies?

Let me know.

You can click "Manage permissions" and type in gmail.com and click "allow", and I think it'll allow gmail cookies to be saved so you don't have to constantly reauthenticate yourself.

Note that you need to add the correct protocol when you manually create an exception.

Most domains are probably for Google websites, but you can check this in the Storage Inspector
