I have troubles enabling the cookies, even though I never disabled them, thus I cannot log into my GMAIL account for over two weeks now. What should I do?

I cannot log into my gmail or facebook account, because it says: cookies are disabled, enable cookies to continue. I tried changing my settings in Firefox - Options - Settings - Privacy - Use custom settings. I did exactly what I was advised in the Firefox Help online, enabled everything, then clicked OK. Didnt work. Tried it again and I only found that the settings (custom settings - enabled everything) were not even saved. I am not able to save these custom settings any way, it never saves them no matter how many times I try and click ok, I come back to the setting to find that they are not there. So I tried clearing all the cookies and cache in history (also found this online in firefox support site), guess what? DIDNT WORK. I am starting to be a little bit pissed off as I cannot log into my gmail or facebook account for over two weeks now! Any time I need to check e-mails I have to use someones laptop.

I am working on a php app and spent hours scouring through code because when I log off the site it should set the cookies to expire an hour ago. Then when you log in it should create new cookies of course. So when I logged off one account and into another it was pulling up cookies that should have expired and changing account information for another account because of this. Tried to recreate the same problem in chrome doesn't happen only in fire fox. Any ideas?

ffox 17 Win XP When i use the mouse wheel to scroll i want vertical scroll only. But it pops up a circle icon and won't scroll anywhere, or tries to go sideways and skids all over the place.

I would like to prevent the mousewheel from doing any horizontal scroll (and to never see that circle icon again). Is it possible?

p.s. I've seen the page "Gecko:Mouse Wheel Scrolling - MozillaWiki" and while it's very thorough, it's really written by/for developers, I just want a simple config entry fix ... please?

On the Privacy tab in Options the check box for Accept cookies from sites is unchecked. I pressed the Exceptions button and added many websites to accept cookies from and clicked Allow for Session on each one. Sometimes I go to a website where I have to sign in with a username and password and the site states that my browser is refusing to accept cookies even though I had added the site to the exception list. When I check the exception list, the status of the exception has changed from Allow for Session to Blocked. I have found several exceptions change on their own from allow to blocked and some even have changed again after I changed them back. What could be causing the exceptions to change and is there some way to make the settings persistent?

I have Firefox set to delete cookies when closed. After I close Firefox, I usually run CC Cleaner. In the Analysis, CC Cleaner shows 307 cookies using a total of 0 space.

In XP, I went to Options, Privacy, and Show Cookies. There are probably 307 shown. When I click to Remove All Cookies nothing happens. When I highlight one cookie and click to Remove, nothing happens. When I open the particular cookie folder and see the cookie, highlight it and click Remove, that cookie seems to disappear for an instant, but when I click on the next one, the first one returns.

I want ALL evidences of all these cookies OFF my computer.

How do I accomplish that?

Hey Firefox-team

I have had this issue with Netflix for a while now.. It started in December 2012, and i think its related to the cookie that Netflix stores on the computer. When i stream a movie, and watch it in fullscreen it suddenly jumps out of fullscreen. It can do that several times when i stream the movie, i tried too reinstall Firefox and Silverligt but i can't get it fixed.. I deleted all the cookies and cache files several times too, and when i do that the problem is sovled for a couple of hours then it starts again too jump out of fullscreen.

Its pretty annoying and i hope there will be an update to fix this problem, or maybe some other solution. Because im getting tired of switching too fullscreen 20 times in a row..!!

So after this new stupid youtube update, it for whatever reason logged me out of my gmail and my youtube accounts, even though i have it set to always have me logged in. when i type in the correct e-mail and password, it redirects me to a page that says "Your browser's cookie functionality is turned off. Please turn it on." So, i came here for help to see if there was a problem, and there was (yay google) and i followed the steps to every solution that i could find. Unfortunately, none of them worked in the slightest, and im stuck out from my e-mail. i can access my youtube and gmail perfectly fine at school, but when i come home it seems to. yes, i already opened up the firefox > options > privacy and did all of that. i deleted all my cookies, enabled 3rd party cookies and disabled it multiple times to see if it would fix anything. sadly to no avail. Now that none of that worked, i come here asking for help one last time :( if anyone has a solution to this, it would be greatly appreciated. preferably something that hasnt been repeated in other posts about this, because ive probably already read it :\

Hi Sorry for my english Where are built-in cookies control tools In Firefox 17.0.1? In previous versions of Firefox "Tools->Options/Privacy" contains the "Cookies.." button. In version 17 i can't find any cookie-relevant info in Tools, in Options, anywhere else. Why?!! I decide this problem by installing "Cookies Manager+" addon - that is similar to old native Firefox cookie manger. But why this useful tool was removed from Firefox 17?
