After clearing cache, exiting, and then re-opening firefox, cache is not empty?

Whenever I clear cache, exit firefox and then reopen, there is always a different amount of data in 'cached web content', like 55kb, or 27kb etc.

Why is this? :)

I wondered if it was the firefox homepage storing data in the cache, but when I clear cache, and then open another firefox homepage, it shows 0kb.

Firefox has just updated to version 84, and has lost all my passwords, and I think cookies too. This is the second time this has happened.

I have had a look in Windows Explorer to see if there is an older file (C:\ProgramData\Mozilla), but nothing there that looks hopeful at all.

I have to ask myself: Should I be using Chrome?

Hi everyone

For a few months after several repairs and installations of Firefox (and even Windows) My cookies are no longer stored in my browser after closing Firefox

I have to authenticate myself on all web pages between all sessions: Google, Outlook ... all web applications without distinctions, even websites that I create myself.

What is intriguing is that this seems to only happen on my personal computer. It works fine from another computer with my account or on my smartphone.

I tried all the options for configuring the storage of cookies without any effect.

I regret not finding a solution, because I will have to abandon Firefox.

If anyone had any idea to find a solution to my problem, I would be very grateful to you

Hey, since FF 64 B13 there are some changes which broke our APP but I cannot find a solution. When we log into our internal website, we are immediately logged out again as soon as I click a link there. You can see that after loading the page, a control cookie "CmdCookie" is reset to an initial value so that you are directed to the login page. All other cookies remain unchanged. With FF64 Beta 12 everything worked without any problems. Does anyone know where the problem could be? If I turn off all the chaches then I can log in, but sporadically I keep being kicked out.

Thanks in advance and have a nice day! Max

I am 85 and in UK and I don't know if I have missed any recents changes, but recently have started getting a blizzard of requests for cookie permissions and also have to complete a square security/cookie form every time I want to use Google. Can anyone help me to solve this problem which is recent as I have enough trouble as it is with "Tech" matters.

I can't find a way to block all the 3rd party cookies by default except for those that I want to. For example, google drive uses some third party cookies to open videos I guess, cause if I block those firefox doesn't reproduce my videos. I would like to remove all the 3rd party cookies except for the sites I want to keep them.. how can I do it?

After re-opening firefox it logs me out automatically where I previously logged in during my last session. I have checked that cookies auto-delete is turned off in settings. And privacy is selected as "Standard". I am attaching a screenshot of current add-ons which are installed. Note that I do not use container tabs except for facebook container. And I am aware of all the features of container tabs. Is there any solution? OS: Windows 10 Home and using Firefox (stable version)

How would I access my private session cookies? I don't believe they are stored in a .sqlite table is there a way to access them within memory? How does firefox access them?


Thanks.

Firefox warned me that they had stopped a social media site from following me. GOOD but worrying, the warning came just after I failed to get into my bank account for the first time in four years. Which social media site was this? I do not use ANY?

bold textSince I got a new computer and put Firefox on it I have not been able to keep choices, selections and cookies for web pages. Every time I go to one I have to reenter settings and/or accept cookies. Even though I do it every time I go to the websites. This is over every web site I go to. Not sure what is causing this. But none of them remember my cookies or settings.
