After updating to Firefox 77.0, it no longer store my cookies between sessions.

I have made sure the "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" is UN-clicked.

I tried deleting the cookies.sqlite file and replace it with an archived cookie.txt file, but Firefox 77.0 no longer converts cookies.txt to cookies.sqlite.

I then tried backing up the cookies.sqlite file after a Firefox session spent signing into various accounts, but it too seems to get cleared out.

What the heck ?

I have tracker protection switched on in Firefox, and Privacy Badger for good measure. I am used to navigating the various "Decline ad cookies" equivalent options whenever I visit a website, but - can I simply click "accept" and let Firefox/Privacy Badger block them regardless? It would save lots of time. Is that how it works? I assume so, but this seems to be a difficult question to search for an answer to - and when I click "allow", often the website reloads without the Firefox blocker shield icon. What's the story?

Thanks!

I trust Firefox to keep my paswords safe without a lot of hassle. Suddenly I am being asked to "verify my identity" before I can view my password. I don't have time for this. It clearly says in the Logins and Passwords tab that my identity is sgillies12@gmail.com. Then it refuses to give me the password because it says that's NOT my identify.

PLEASE HELP ME ASAP. I need to do some work. thank you.

I think my Firefox updated, and now there is a feature where any "insecure" sites now have all the media blocked on it. When I click "Disable protection for now," it does nothing and I have no way to unblock any of it. I am literally just trying to read the TF2 comics, which I know are on a safe website (and even if they weren't, I have antivirus software that protects my computer just fine), but because of this "mixed content" block I literally can't see anything but a white page. I've searched settings for a way to permanently disable this protection, but I haven't found anything.

I haven't been able to find a way to do so, does anybody know if it's possible and how? And if it isn't how could it be requested for an upgrade?

Thank you.

I know there a quite a few os this same question, but they're old and none of their solutions work.

I have checked Block Audio and Video Autoplay in my settings, but Firefox does not block them. Audio block seems to work sometimes but video block never does.

This is extremely annoying and I need help.

Thanks.
