For forum: re: Tools>Options>Network>Offline Web Content and User Data, (Help) says in part, '..If you have previously blocked a website from storing data for offline use..', If this refers to the times I have 'denied' a web service from storing data on my machine, then something is wrong. I have 'denied' many such requests, yet there is nothing in the box (Exceptions) 'Offline Data'. Why is there nothing in the box, and/or how do I manually add a service to the 'blocked' box? For me, this is a real problem as I have spent as much as 5 minutes clicking on the little 'Deny' box in the request before it goes away and allows me to watch the video I wanted to watch (the little 'request' box sits right in the middle of the video box, blocking viewing of the video). Is this a problem with Adobe Flash Player Settings (whos 'request' box it appears to belong to) or a problem with the Firefox> Tools (Local Storage) settings? (a picture of this 'request box' available on request)

Note that Offline Web Content is different then local DOM storage and is only used on a few websites that run an application like the mega.co.nz website.

You can inspect and manage the permissions for all domains on the about:permissions page or for the domain in the currently selected tab via these steps:

  • Click the "Site Identity Button" (globe/padlock) on the location bar
  • Click "More Information" to open Page Info
  • Go to the Permissions tab
  • Tools > Page Info > Permissions

You can delete the permissions.sqlite file to reset all permissions.
