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

There are four alternative options in the dropdown for Enhanced Tracking Protection>Cookies:

  1. 1. Cross-site and social media trackers
  2. 2. Cookies from unvisited web sites
  3. 3. All third party cookies
  4. 4. All cookies

My question: Are these listed in order of scope, meaning more powerful and comprehensive options as one reads down the list? If "yes", then: What types of cookies are further blocked by going from #1 above to #2? What types of cookies are further blocked by going from #2 to #3? What types of cookies are further blocked by going from #3 to #4? Answers to the above would be helpful in deciding which level of blocking to choose.

Hello,

I got wondering about how I can save cookies from certain websites that I frequent like my e-mail for instance so I wouldn't have to type in my information again and again after clearing the cookies data in Firefox from time to time so it won't slow down or something. I tried putting in the full website address in the Manage Exceptions under Privacy & Security but still see the cookie(s) from that website on the list. Hope I'm making some sense here and that one of you might know something as in how I can get around this. Thank you in advance if you reply to this post.

Hello everyone. Like the title says I am seeing a lot of these type cookies being left over in Ccleaner after I close Firefox. (Please see attached image.) I have had as many as over 300 of these type cookies in Ccleaner so apparently Firefox is not clearing out these types of cookies when I close my browser like it is suppose to do with cookies etc. etc. Could someone shed some light on this whether this is now normal to see these type cookies for websites that I visit and why Firefox does not remove them when I close the browser and if not what can I do to remedy this. I have read that Firefox has enhanced its tracking prevention and was wondering if this could be the result.

I may have to stop using Firefox if I can't resolve this problem

After a few weeks certain Ebay pages start to not display correctly - writing goes small, moves to the left, big black arrows appear, other pages are alright

I know if I clear 'all cookies' it will solve the problem - but then I have to reload passwords etc on all the sites I visit

I've tried

  • switching of tracking protection on the ebay page
  • selecting and deleteing all Ebay cookies under 'managed data'

but neither solve the problem

The only solution I know to work is to clear all cookies - but I really can't be doing this every couple of weeks

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?

I'm experiencing some trouble on the website Chesstempo. I can't acces some of the functionalities on the site and I can't log out off the site.

I think a resent Firefox update might have changed somethings in regard to browser history and cookies?

My problem: Firefox won't delete cookies and browser history. I did a reset and when that didn't work I had to manually delete sqlite and json files. That worked!.....but I'm still experiencing problems on Chesstempo.

I'm on old hardware here, so the problem could be on my end, but Chesstempo worked fine until recently. Obviously Chesstempo have to have the abillity to set and read cookies to track my activity properly.

Other competing products work fine here?

Any thoughts would be appreciated

Problem with login on specific sites only - Login not possible or forgotten - Incognito mode works fine

Hello,

I have a problem with login on a few selected sites. On some sites I cannot login at all, on other sites I can log in, but as soon as I don't interact with the website for a few seconds the login is lost and the next click on any link shows me a "not logged in"-state.

For example on my companies Outlook Web Access site, when I enter my account info and click on "Sign In", it briefly shows a loading screen and then takes me back to the login site. On another webiste I can log in and use the website without problems, but not clicking anything for more than ~5 seconds leads to the login being lost. The strange thing is: in incognito mode everything works fine on both sites!?

Firefox is 87.0, I have already deleted all cookies and stored data.
