I am a new developer and I'm trying to learn how cookies work, but I don't know how to view what the actual cookie value is, so that I can check if I did it correctly. I see where you can set the defaults you want and enable or disable cookies, but where can you view the content in FireFox browser? I know in Google Chrome you can see all the cookies and their values in settings, content, cookies, view all. Thanx, Gil

Hi All,

I am working UI Automation. We are using javascript injection for automation. One of the features we need is to ability set / unset cookies.

I am able to set cookie using javascript, but I can't delete / unset a cookie. I am using below script to unset cookie.

document.cookie = 'cookie_name=; path=/; domain=.mycompany.com; expires=Thu, 01 Jan 1970 00:00:00 GMT';

If I try to alert document.cookie, it shows empty string. However, I can still see the cookie in browser after the javascript execution is complete.

Can someone suggest what I might be doing wrong?

P.S. I am on FF v17.0.3 esr on RHEL 5.

Thanks, Shiv

Now the browser version Firefox Quantum Extended Support Release 68.4.1esr (32-bit) for Alt Linux is installed on my computer. Upon request by the POST method in the specified browser from the Apache server on the same computer loads a static web page with the following META tag in its header: <META HTTP-EQUIV="Set-Cookie" CONTENT="name=password; PATH=/"> After that, cookies must be created in the browser. Really they are created - in other browsers (Chrome and Opera), but for some reason they ceased to be created in the Firefox browser. What is the reason for this and is it possible to resume and track their creation in Firefox? I would be grateful for any answer on this question.

I just installed firefox. I was able to log into my major google mail account, but when I try to log into my second and third google mail account, i get a message 'cookies are not enabled". I checked and cookies are enabled but I still get the same message. I am not tech savvy and really don't know what to do now. I need to access my mail so this is a major hindrance. I like Mozilla and really don't want to go back to IE. I did all that was suggested, but the message persists. Did not find a simple anough answer in the forums. Please assist. Here is the message from google mail: We've detected a problem with your cookie settings. Enable cookies

i have done everything listed here so many times and nothing is fixing this. Made sure cookies were enabled, cleared cache and cookies, made sure Gmail was approved in security settings, and then as a last ditch effort, I disabled all add-ons for Firefox and still no Gmail... I was so desperate that I even re-installed ff-19 and still cannot get into my email account. What is going on here? Any help or small nudge in the correct direction would be much appreciated!

FireFox 19.02 Cookie Handling Changes prevent users from blocking or allowing cookies?

Prior to 19.0.2, I could specifically decide exactly how a site deposited cookies on my machine. When I visited a 'new' site, FireFox sprung open a pop-up window that allowed me to choose "Block", "Allow for Session" or "Allow". That doesn't appear anymore.

Also, for at least one site, FireFox won't adhere to my chosen handling preference: "Twitter dot com" will not accept the "Allow For Session" designator. I've NEVER allowed any site to set cookies past session's end, and prior to 19.0.2 Twitter had the "Allow for Session" designation. Now, however, Twitter FORCES FireFox to "ALLOW" cookies; when I manually enter "Allow for session" Firefox won't take it! FireFox immediately changes that to "ALLOW" status.

Why was the very nice pop-up cookie handling routine disabled in FireFox 19.0.2, and is there any way to get it back? This new FireFox is making me unhappy.

I updated Firefox yesterday. Now I can't load Calendar - from a bookmark, nor from the Apps link.

Here is what I get. I've ensured cookies are abled.

The page isn't redirecting properly

Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

   This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.
