I know that clearing browser cookie regularly is a good practice, but I am a bit curious if clearing out those session cookies is the same as if you log out of all the accounts manually.

Because logging out manually will make both local and server side session cookies invalid, thus log out safely.

Meanwhile clearing browser cookies only delete local side session cookie, while the session cookie on the server remains. Which means the session is still valid.

So do I clear browser cookies or log out manually if I want to log out of all accounts?

Many sites now ask for permission for various cookies. If we say "yes" will Firefox then disable the cookies. It's a bit of a pain being asked the same question over and over again or having to go through sometimes a long list of approvals.

On settings, you can clear things. Does clearing things clear passwords? For example, it says clear cache. Does that clear passwords because one time in the past clearing cache deleted passwords. What does cache clear? Does it say anywhere the details? Is cache is the same as local cache? Where things are in the cache, and where is it stored? Is it stored in the same place as local cache? Is there anywhere that details what all the settings do?

Keeping cookies in Firefox; man-oh-man, why is this so difficult?

Hello. I just updated to FF 94 but my confusion pre-dates the update. It would be most helpful to have a clear, concise, non-nerd jargon about how to keeps cookies. I normally delete cookies on domain change. This works for me!

I have a specific domain, a bank, that *now* charges me a fee to log in and check my account: two-step verification. The bank says that if I don't delete their cookies when I log off then I won't be charged a fee the next time I try to log in. Fair enough.

After looking through the Firefox / Mozilla explanations on how to keep cookies, what I read is not clear. Lets start here: many of the explanations show images of the about:config: "Cookies and Site Data. What I see on my screen is not what is presented in the proposed solution. Example: at this page https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1287495 it shows "Manage Permissions". On my screen it says "Manage Exceptions". There is a big difference in understanding between "Permissions" and "Exceptions" and seeing as how I don't know what "Permissions" mean then I'm left with a hole in my understanding of how to proceed. This might sound a minor point to make, but I can not find a clear, up-to-date (FF 93) how to keep selected cookies. So please let me state clearly what I want to know and hopefully a clear, concise answer may appear.

- I want to keep specific cookies, from a specific domain, that were loaded into FF during a session. - The next time I attempt to login to that specific domain, the previously saved (hopefully) cookies will be recognized by the domain and allow me to log in without further charges.

For my purposes the "Cookies and Site Data - Manage Data" function is not relevant. I don't need to make a special election to allow cookies from my bank, nor am I trying to restrict cookies from entering the browser. I simply want to save particular stored cookies for the next attempted login to a specific domain.

Please, and with respect: clear, concise, simple language that is attuned with the visuals / graphics / images of FF 93.

Thank you in advance and wishing you healthy times.

Hi,

I'm developping a custom tool in order to automatically clean my cookies from several websites. For example, I would like to automatically remove cookies from twitter.com every time I launch my tool. I'm under Win10x64, firefox v89, tool developped in python.

To do this, once firefox is closed, my tool go in my profile folder, access to cookies.sqlite and delete row associated to twitter.com

-> DELETE from moz_cookies WHERE host == '.twitter.com';

The database is saved, no more "twitter" in my cookies.sqlite file, and the tool ensures there is no cookies.sqlite-wal or cookies.sqlite-shm files left.

After that, when I open again twitter, I am no longer connected to my session, but I got an error which seems to be related to cookies (see screenshot).

Moreover, when I oppenup the firefox cookies manager, there is still twitter cookies in the list, but 0 cookies associated.

Where is my mistake ? Can you help me solve my problem ? Thanks

I delete my cookies the end of each session. So when I reload FF and revisit any sites that require cookies I have to click to accept, which is tiresome. Can I set certain trusted sites to automatically recreate cookies? I find the 'manage data' panel very confusing - I'm not sure what I'm blocking and allowing. Please see screen shot of settings.
