What is available to the visited site in Private Browsing in a new window? Private browsing does not save cookies or history, but does it make previously saved cookies and history from un-private browsing available?

I ask because there is advice in a couple of YouTube videos about how to search for keywords to use in your new videos. This advice is that when hunting for potential popular search keywords, using a new private window to do the search will cause YouTube to do an "unbiased" search. That is, it will not be able to look at your YouTube history to determine viewing preferences when it presents you with recommended (auto complete) searches.

(Oops. I just realized I am doing this in a private window. I hope that doesn't matter.)

Thanks, Tom

I'm in permanent private browsing mode, so whenever I close Firefox the YouTube cookie exception I put under Manage exceptions gets deleted, now my question is if there is no way to make the exception permanent while in private browsing mode, why is the "Manage exceptions" menu enabled? why not disable it/grey it out?

Directed at the goomers who write the software

So, having been with Firefox since the end of Netscape Navigator... I have had one major irritation that is as follows:

Why is it not possible to simply save a cookie somewhere in a little piggy vault, and forgoing any other setting, and will save that cookie (specifically my banking cookies).

And be able to clear other data when closing the browser without losing said cookie(s)

no need for response, I am not interested in reading another, well, check a, but not b, or if you use r, then uncheck x.... I am not out to recreate a bomb, just wanted to simply get into my bank

Problem with login on specific sites only - Login not possible or forgotten - Incognito mode works fine

Hello,

I have a problem with login on a few selected sites. On some sites I cannot login at all, on other sites I can log in, but as soon as I don't interact with the website for a few seconds the login is lost and the next click on any link shows me a "not logged in"-state.

For example on my companies Outlook Web Access site, when I enter my account info and click on "Sign In", it briefly shows a loading screen and then takes me back to the login site. On another webiste I can log in and use the website without problems, but not clicking anything for more than ~5 seconds leads to the login being lost. The strange thing is: in incognito mode everything works fine on both sites!?

Firefox is 87.0, I have already deleted all cookies and stored data.

Hi there,

I've been trying without much luck to find out when or in what Firefox version, the config setting network.cookie.sameSite.schemeful will be set to 'true' by default?

Can anyone point me in the direction of where this information is or let me know the answer if they already know it?

And I'll apologise in advance if this is in an obvious spot that I've just stupidly missed.

Thanks! Simon

Hi, recently I've been seeing a repeated problem where instead of having everything logged in and ready to go on many websites, somehow ALL of my logins get deleted, as if they never even existed. This is really troublesome because I have multiple google accounts and they have to be logged in in a specific order so that certain links actually go to the right account. This has happened twice now, the first time I thought it was one time weird occurrence, but now that it happened again, I want to know what the problem is and fix it. So I want to know, is anyone else having this problem? I know some websites log you out after some time, but really there are many where it should stay, like YouTube, Twitter, Reddit. Luckily, logins seem to be the only thing affected as bookmarks and browser history seem to be unaffected.
