How can I get Firefox to remember permissions granted to specific websites?

Posted

I know that Firefox asks for permissions for each website that I visit (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-firefox-android-use-permissions-it-requests) However I often visit the same few websites and I have to tell Firefox to grant permissions each time. Is there a way to tell Firefox to "remember" that I granted a permission and to always grant it again w/out asking me?

Hi

Do you have Firefox for Android set to clear the browsing history when you exit? If so, that will also clear the permissions that you have set.

I do not have it set to clear browser history. In fact I can reproduce this problem w/out leaving the tab. If I navigate to the page in question navigating away, then navigate back it re-asks for permissions.
