Can no longer manage cookies to save logged in status?
I remember from past rodeos that I need to know the precise name of the cookies. But now when I check which cookies are added when I login, I can only see them grouped by the main website title--nytimes.com and I see that they have added 7 cookies. But I cannot see individual cookies.
How can I see the cookies to copy their addresses for the 'exceptions' table for data management to allow the right ones to be retained; OR just tell FF to allow my 3 preferred sites to stay 'always' logged in when I reopen FF?
FF beta 93.0b3 Mac OS 10.14.6
Figured out that another setting was trumping this one....clearing history trumps exception to save data. Done.Read this answer in context 👍 0

You can use the Storage Inspector to inspect cookies and other types of storage.
Thank you, that was quite helpful. Looking again and doing a dope-slap to forehead: the problem isn't that it is subcribe.nytimes.com instead of nytimes.com for the subscriber cookie, it is that Firefox is not saving the 'exceptions' where I give nytimes.com & other regular sites permission to store cookies.
I go to
preferences > privacy and security > Cookies and Site Data > manage exceptions
enter nytimes.com and click allow, FF dutifully shows it recorded as both http and https, I click save, and then when I reopen settings, the exceptions box is empty!
