I have to ask this question AGAIN, because I'm not getting an answer, and it's disturbing because it relates to grave security issues. (and I forgot to record the URL of the first post, even though I did save the page itself), and when I search for my username on the forum, I'm informed that there are no results in English, AND, since you provide no image upload for this question, I'll have to do it in a reply (which will not BE a reply).
First post, which nobody is answering:
One "solution" says to open "tasks" menu. The IS no "tasks" menu. There is no "preferences" menu, either, only "options." Under "options," there are only two possible sub-menus that are supposed to be of help here, "privacy" and "security," but neither now offers what USED to be available: "Ask me about every cookie." This is really frustrating and angering me because these pervasive, invasive, and destructive cookies cause irreparable harm (short of system reformat) to my operating system by allowing transparent access to my system by unauthorized domains. What happened to "Ask me about every cookie?" How am I supposed to limit and control cookies now? Currently, I have only one option: Review daily the HUNDREDS of cookies and manually delete the unwelcome newcomers, and back up the cookie list to the benefit of newly added WANTED cookies. If I let this go a few days, I have to delete the entire cookie cache and restore the list from backup. Why am I no longer afforded the protection of cookie setting approval? How is this removal of control improving my security in light of no provision of an added interface towards this end? I abandoned Internet Explorer for a VERY good reason (THIS one!), and now it looks like Firefox has become equally useless in this regard, and that I have absolutely no motivation whatsoever to use Firefox anymore. I might as well just go back to Internet Explorer, especially seeing as how I can no longer find Firefox Live Chat through your help options so I can "talk" to a live human.
What? Has nobody else noticed that their cookie cache is now filling up with garbage and threats? How do I get Firefox to ask me to vet every cookie again? Why have "they" decided to make Firefox an insecure browser? The way it's configured now, I have to examine every single NOW-UNAUTHORIZED cookie on a daily basis, and this makes the job MUCH, much harder, because a lot of required/friendly cookies have abstrusely arcane names, and when I mistakenly delete them, I screw up my browsing/login experience.
