Using Firefox 68.12.0ESR. I know 78 is available, I just haven't had the time to test it yet. I delete cookies when I exit Firefox. I want to keep some for sites that I trust, such as this site. I've added exceptions to Allow these trusted sites as documented on a thread somewhere else, but it doesn't work. All cookies are deleted.

Is it possible to keep cookies only for a select group of sites. eg. support.mozilla.com, tomshardware.com, mydigitallife.net, speedtest.net and so on.

Thank you.

So, I'm using Thunderbird 78.5.0 (32-bit).

Recently, it keeps telling my my password for my hotmail.co.uk email is wrong.

It's not; I can login directly to hotmail (outlook) without issue.

The thunderbird profile has always been imap, and I've tried resetting the password, but that doesn't work. It must be a recent change or a non-obvious setting?

Any help appreciated.

I have found a log-in in the logins and passwords list which I do not recognise - from a dating site which I haven't used! (How) Is this possible? I had recently been receiving a huge amount of spam but once I deleted the log-in the spam dissappeared. Does anyone have any thoughts?

Hello,

I have a MacBook Air (macOS Big Sur 11.1) since mid-December, before that I was using Windows. I have downloaded Firefox. Now I have the problem that I have to log in to my Firefox account every time when I end Firefox completely (or the Macbook crashes, but that's for Apple support). 'How can I stay logged in?" It's about my Firefox account through which I sync all my bookmarks and passwords. That works as well, until the next launch.

Thanks in advance


Hallo,

ich habe seit Mitte Dezember ein MacBook Air (macOS Big Sur 11.1), vorher habe ich mit Windows gearbeitet. Habe mir Firefox geladen. Jetzt habe ich das Problem, dass ich mich ständig bei Firefox anmelden muss, wenn ich Firefox komplett beende (oder das Macbook abstürzt, aber das ist für den Apple Support). Wie kann ich angemeldet bleiben? Es geht um meinen Firefox Account über den ich alle meine Lesezeichen und Passwörter synchronisiere. Das funktioniert auch, bis zum nächsten Start.

Vielen Dank im Voraus

Hi there, When I navigate to Settings in Firefox -> (don't know the exact term in English) Privacy and Security -> Cookies and website data I see this "The saved cookies, website data and the cache currently occupy xx MB" and three buttons Remove Data, Manage Data, and Manage Exceptions. When I click the first button to remove the data, the data is erased but it always leaves an 85Kb amount. Why? I can remember times when all of this data was removed. Kind regards.

Good day to all,

Can anyone tell me why I do not have the option to continue to a particular website?

I get this message... "Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead"

I click Advance tab and only get the "Go Back (Recommended) option, not a continue button.

A co-worker can get to the site every time. He has two options to "Go Back" or to Add an Exception and continue to the site. There seems to be two differences between our browsers: 1) He has an older version and I have the newest version. 2) Under the "About:Config" I have an extra line that I cannot change "security.certerror.hideAddException" This option is set to "True" and is locked and grayed out. I do not have the option to change it.

Any ideas?

Hi, since today I've been unable to connect to reCAPTCHA. At first the reCAPTCHA boxes didn't show up at all and Firefox prevented me from connecting with Google because of an error with the certificate. I was able to fix that by allowing Firefox to trust root authorities (solution #6 on this list: https://sectigostore.com/page/fix-the-warning-potential-security-risk-ahead-error-in-firefox/ )

While the reCAPTCHA boxes are showing up again, I still can't connect with it. When checking the box, it starts loading for a while and I get an error message saying that there's no contact with reCAPTCHA and that I should check my connection and try again. I included a screenshot.

I went to topics of people who had the same problem and tried everything. Disabling protection against tracking, disabling Adblock, starting Firefox in safe mode, refreshing Firefox, loading another Firefox profile, restarting Firefox, uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox, restarting my pc. I'm desperate.

I'm only having this problem in Firefox, not in any other browser.
