Hello,

I am wondering if Firefox will help users auto opt out of cookies. By this I mean will Firefox implement a feature that the user can turn on in the settings that automatically deleted cookies that are not needed even if they select that they want to opt in or check the cookies that they are opting into and accidentally opt into ones they don't need to. I believe this could be achieved with machine learning that looks at the cookies that are required by websites and the cookies that are more than what are required. Is Mozilla thinking about adding this future or will it in the future? I believe it could change the industry.

Hello

I've deleted my cookies and other data by mistake. I had a gmail account logged in(meaning when i open gmail, browser doesn't ask password etc.) now after i delete this data, i can't access to my gmail(forgot password and it wasn't connected to any kind of recovery yet. New gmail).

I somehow managed to get my previous firefox data using shadow explorer. when i follow 'Recovering important data from an old profile' guide, it doesn't work. Ex: my old cookies.sqlite file is 1.5MB. when i copy it to new profile i see it is copied. But whenever i open firefox i see cookies.sqlite new size is 96kb and i don't see any old data.

I tried almost everything on this link: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/recovering-important-data-from-an-old-profile I copied whole folders(both roaming and local). I copied only important files such as login.json or cookies.sqlite etc. Nothing works.

What am i missing here?

About every month or so Firefox decides to delete my login info and i have to relog everywhere again.

While this is not a critical issue, its a very annoying one.

My cookie settings are on standard, and the "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" square is unticked. I use Dashlane for my passwords but ive used it for a long time before on mozilla and other browsers and i've never had issues with it.

Hello, I am trying to get FF to keep some cookies for intranet sites, so that I dont need to login all the time when I open some sites on the intranet. Currently I have: Cookies&Site Data: Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed, An entry in "Manage Exceptions" for each server address (e.g. https://host.domain.tld) with "Allow". Privacy&Security: Use custom settings for history, Clear history when FF closes, in "Settings" everything ticked. But I still need to login on all sites after I closed FF.

How can I avoid this logins everytime I open a site?

How to make Firefox accept a third-party cookie used for authentication by a Java web application?

Hi,

I am a developer currently working on an open-source solution called GeoNetwork (https://github.com/geonetwork/core-geonetwork/). This application has a Java backend that uses a JSESSIONID cookie to track user sessions. One instance of the application can be accessed anonymously here: https://sextant.ifremer.fr/Donnees/Catalogue

The session cookie is set on the first request to the backend with the following parameters:

Domain: "sextant.ifremer.fr" expirationDate: "Session" HostOnly: true HttpOnly: true SameSite: "None" Secure: true

This application theoretically allows login in from a different origin. For example from https://www.milieumarinfrance.fr/Acces-aux-donnees/Catalogue, which under the hood points to the same backend. We noticed recently that when accessing the application from a different origin in Firefox, the network requests aimed at the "sextant.ifremer.fr" host *do not carry any existing session cookie*, thus rendering authenticated access impossible.

The existing session cookie is correctly used when I add an "allow" exception for the sextant.ifremer.fr origin in the cookies settings of Firefox (see attached screenshot in French). So I figure that it's Firefox that decides not to use any existing cookie when on this origin.

Is there any way to indicate to Firefox that this cookie is legitimate and that it is needed for essential functionalities, without relying on the user allowing the cookie explicitly?

Thanks a lot in advance!

Every week or so, I discover that my most visited sites ask me again for cookie consent, meaning whatever I saved the previous time gets removed. This also happens with extensions (for example, I get logged out of my password manager extension). I strongly suspect this happens after Firefox performs updates in the background.

It's incredibly frustrating and I am considering switching to another browser, after using Firefox for more than 10 years. This behavior started this year, and I've been struggling to understand why and what I can do about it.

I would very much appreciate some help on fixing this, it's driving me crazy. Thanks in advance.

I recently installed Firefox. Now every day I open it, I have to log in again with multiple google accounts and other kinds of credentials for sites like Trello that I use for work purposes. I don't understand why I keep logging out. And it's very inconvenient since most of the accounts I use require email/ phone verification every time I log in. I looked through the solutions here and turned on a few options in Settings that had to do with cookies and form and search history, but it's still not working. Please provide a solve for this as soon as possible, thank you!

So for my main gmail I have 2 step for obvious security reasons, but I want it to trust my PC so that I don't have to pull out my phone every time I try to access it. No matter how many times I click the option to trust this PC it always ask' for the 2 step, and I don't see the PC on the trusted list in my gmail settings. I have already added "mail.google.com" to the exceptions part of the cookie and site data settings, even "account.google.com" but it just doesn't seem to work. What is the obvious thing that I am missing?
