Setting `delete cookies and site data when firefox is closed`

more options

For our website we de use OAuth2 to login. For this to succeed we need to store some data in de localstorage or sessionstorage. But the data in the storage is cleared when we redirect back from our authenticator. This only happens when `delete cookies and site data when firefox is closed` is checked.

We are not closing Firefox, we are only redirecting the between two different domains. Is this intended?

Try to create an allow exception with the proper protocol (likely https://) for involved domains.

Thanks for the response. What do you mean with 'create an allow exception'? Both domains use https. Can give you an example?

In this link is an code snippet where localstorage is not stored on redirect.

Can you explain why this happens? Google Chrome doesn't have this behaviour when 'Clear cookies and site data when you quit Chrome' is checked.
