Getting Cookies required to use Firefox To continue signing in using Firefox, allow cookies to be stored on this device. You might see this screen more than once.

message after the upgrade and it's very frustrating that mozilla push these updates without testing them properly. What I did -Tried adding an exception with allow for Cookies -Changed Standard mode to Custom - Tried with private browsing - Cleared cache - Switched off Tracking and protection for this website as well as opencart.zendesk.com

Nothing helped. On chrome it works. How to fix this ?

Firefox always deletes cookies for some websites when it's restarted. While working in non-private mode I checked, that the setting for removing the cookies on closing is set to off. Then I tried adding some websites to the exception list for this setting, no luck. I made sure that cookies on those websites are persistent, not session only, and they are working in other browsers. I tried disabling the plugins, but it didn't help either. It's somewhat annoying, because now I have to adjust cookie preferences every time I visit my favourite websites. I use "standard" protection settings.

When I go to google.com and do a search the results page has the "tools" button but it does not work. The "people also ask" categories are also broken (they will not expand), and, if I click the "images" filter button to view images associated with my search it either shows no images (or only a few images) and a bunch of blank boxes. I have found that if I hold the shift key and click the reload button everything is back and working properly until the next time I do a google.com search, then it is back to the same odd behavior. So, my assumption here is that either a cookie or some site data is corrupting the results page for my search. Running Firefox 92.0 (64-bit) on a Windows 7 Dell machine and everything was working fine until about two months ago. Also, Chrome does not show the same behavior. BTW. I have also done everything I have found that was recommended to fix Firefox issues with Google search. Run Firefox in private mode, run without plugins, changed themes, created new profile, I even completely uninstalled Firefox and did a clean install all with the same results. Any help is appreciated. It is almost got me ready to move back to Chrome.

Many sites now ask for permission for various cookies. If we say "yes" will Firefox then disable the cookies. It's a bit of a pain being asked the same question over and over again or having to go through sometimes a long list of approvals.

On settings, you can clear things. Does clearing things clear passwords? For example, it says clear cache. Does that clear passwords because one time in the past clearing cache deleted passwords. What does cache clear? Does it say anywhere the details? Is cache is the same as local cache? Where things are in the cache, and where is it stored? Is it stored in the same place as local cache? Is there anywhere that details what all the settings do?

I know that clearing browser cookie regularly is a good practice, but I am a bit curious if clearing out those session cookies is the same as if you log out of all the accounts manually.

Because logging out manually will make both local and server side session cookies invalid, thus log out safely.

Meanwhile clearing browser cookies only delete local side session cookie, while the session cookie on the server remains. Which means the session is still valid.

So do I clear browser cookies or log out manually if I want to log out of all accounts?

Hi,

I'm developping a custom tool in order to automatically clean my cookies from several websites. For example, I would like to automatically remove cookies from twitter.com every time I launch my tool. I'm under Win10x64, firefox v89, tool developped in python.

To do this, once firefox is closed, my tool go in my profile folder, access to cookies.sqlite and delete row associated to twitter.com

-> DELETE from moz_cookies WHERE host == '.twitter.com';

The database is saved, no more "twitter" in my cookies.sqlite file, and the tool ensures there is no cookies.sqlite-wal or cookies.sqlite-shm files left.

After that, when I open again twitter, I am no longer connected to my session, but I got an error which seems to be related to cookies (see screenshot).

Moreover, when I oppenup the firefox cookies manager, there is still twitter cookies in the list, but 0 cookies associated.

Where is my mistake ? Can you help me solve my problem ? Thanks
