I don't use "Clear history when Firefox closes". All cookies from other sites in exception list are saved. I added both https://mail.yahoo.com/ and https://www.yahoo.com/ to exceptions list but it didn't work. Then i tried with removing https://mail.yahoo.com/ from exceptions because in saved cookies list i see only yahoo.com, but again no effect. All permissions in Page Info for both mail.yahoo.com and yahoo.com are default.

After i do that, do i have to add both www.yahoo.com and login.yahoo.com to exceptions list or none of these two sites?

Moderator, delete my previous reply and keep this one.

I was wondering if i should keep yahoo.com in exceptions list. After i allowed login.yahoo.com cookies in Permissions, i saw that login.yahoo.com^firstpartydomain=yahoo was added to exceptions list.

Thanks.

Again the same kind of question as my first one. I allowed www.reddit.com in both exceptions and site permission, but reddit's cookies are deleted when i exit firefox. URL for login is www.reddit.com/login.

Edit: i fixed that. Moderator, you may delete my entire thread here about not saved cookies.
