I have had Firefox set to delete cookies upon closure for several years now. I recently noticed that some cookies were present as soon as the browser was opened, which should not be happening.

This set of cookies reappears every time I open Firefox, even if I manually delete all the cookies, and even if I delete the cookies.sqlite file in between closing Firefox and reopening it.

This problem occurs on two machines with Firefox. One with Windows 7 and one with Windows 10. I have Sync configured to keep bookmarks the same on both machines. I was wondering if this may have something to do with it, as the same set of 'zombie cookies' keeps reappearing on both machines?

Question, My security preferences says my settings are controlled by my organization. This is a personal win 10 installation. Also third party cookies are re-enabled every time I run firefox according to a spybot scan. My linux installations seem to give me full control without the controlled by organization message. I'm guessing it has something to do with microsoft. I have reinstalled firefox twice without syncing to my account with the same result. Just wondering if you have seen this before. Thank you!!

I'm Developing a Web Application

I make a GET request to a web app with Fetch API, It shows "No headers for this request" in developer tools, and the cookies get changed as if the request were sent without any cookies and the web app assigned a new cookie. Are cookies sent by default with GET request using Fetch API in firefox?

When accessing page directly instead of Fetch API the request seems to go through every other "F5 Press", and otherwise the same problem occurs.

It works on chromium - trying to figure out what could be different - if it's a problem with firefox or my backend - any ideas? Thanks

Firefox Version 79.0 on ArchLinux Flask/Gunicorn/Nginx on Debian

Bonjour ( from France )

I am submitting to you a problem that only appears with your browser and not with Chrome.

These are the cookies that I have configured on my PC to refuse them, it's my choice!

I accept them occasionally when certain sites I visit ask me to

When I connect to my portal, Orange in this case, I always have this banner (see the print sceen attached) which appears each time either by opening my inbox on each of the messages, or by consulting different subjects presented by the home page.

In vain I answer that I accept or refuse, it works on a few selection clicks then the banner reappears!

It's very very annoying

So I switch to Chrome and I don't have this pb so I conclude that it comes from Firefox!

I am retired from IT with 50 years in the business and I do not understand this bug.

Could you delete this permanent alert, especially since it has only appeared for a very few years.

Of course I could do without Firefox and use Chrome as my default browser, but I prefer Mozilla to Google.

Thank you in advance for your answer and remove this headband that breaks our feet.

I am using Multi-Account Containers, and am unclear on how it interacts with the other cookie and storage management features of the browser. If I clear cookies from Preferences -> Privacy & Security -> Cookies and Site Data -> Clear Data, does that clear all cookies in all containers, or just in "No Container"? Is there a way to delete/manage cookies within just a single container? Is there a way to delete/manage cookies for just "No Container"? Is there a plugin to help with this, or a manual means of editing cookies (editing text file or sqlite database)?

Whenever I attempt to download anything from my Google drive I get this error in the attached image. Never had this issue before. Attempting to allow all cookies and manage exceptions doesn't work and also clearing caches and other cookies fails as well. The only way that works is by getting a shareable link and pasting it into an incognito tab and dragging the image onto the desktop. This doesn't work with other file types, only images.
