Why won't exceptions for deleting cookies and cookie protection software not work every time

I added a few sites I frequently visit, such as banks, credit card company Google, to the exceptions list in Cookies And Site Data. When my version of Firefox was recently updated to 102.0.1, a few of those sites began asking for additional authentication because they didn't recognize my computer. So I added the recommended add-on, Cookie Quick Manager. and listed those sites as protected. This worked for a few days but Google and my credit card company again don't recognize my computer. I am not using a VPN.

Thank you.

Thank you for the quick response. I read both articles you sent links for and took steps from each. I clicked on the shield next to the URL. Although that showed under "exceptions" for enhanced tracking protection, that didn't work by itself. I then read the second article and changed the custom cookie setting to cross-site tracking cookies. The combination of settings seems to have worked.

In some cases this can be caused by Total Cookie Protection being enabled in 102. This isolates (third-party) cookies.
