Earlier this week I noted that since the upgrade to 102.0.1 certain sites that I use frequently, such as Gmail and y credit card company, always request TFA. I had added these sites to my exception list. In response to my question I received a couple of good suggestions, including adding Cookie Quick Manager and turning off enhanced tracking protection for those sites.

I also clicked on the box at these sites to remember my computer and not send a TFA request again. These actions worked for a couple of days but no more.

I understand what TFA is and why in some cases it is a good thing, but these are trusted sites and the continual requirement to get a code is more than a little annoying. So I'm looking for another option.

Also, I sent Google a question about why this isn't working in case it's something on their end.
