I use Pinterest quite a bit and somehow a great deal of pins have disappeared.

This happened once before when I was using Chrome, and I was able to go digging into my cached files and find the cached versions of the thumbnails of my Pins, so I could somewhat recreate them based on that.

I'm not sure how to go about that with Firefox. Would any information (specifically images) be stored from a previous version of a webpage?

Thank you!

Hello,

I am having problems with some sites and the error seems to indicate that it is related to cookies.

In Google Drive, when I am trying to download any file, it is getting stuck in some kind of loop and at the end, it is showing this:

The page isn’t redirecting properly

An error occurred during a connection to drive.google.com.

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

Apart from this, when I am trying to log into my Riot account in Valorant's website, it is ending up showing this:

Expected redirect cookie to exist

___

I have tried following:

  • Using Standard mode for tracking protection
  • Disabling tracking protection for these sites
  • Deleting Cookies & Cache
  • Reinstalling Firefox :(

It didn't help. Also, it started after I reinstalled Windows 11. I have yet to setup it, so I have not made any changes.

Also, everything is working fine in other browsers.

Firefox update from 111.0.1 to 112 set the dates of most cookies into the far future and keeps doing it

The last update made it look like all cookies were gone, except there are still there but the dates are wrong. 90%+ of them have their "last used" date set to "in 4,137 years" (see screenshot). Websites ask to accept cookies every time Firefox is restarted, which makes them basically useless. I have to use phone authentication each time I want to check gmail on my desktop because the site acts as if it had never seen me before.

Firefox's safe mode is the same. I ran the antivirus on the whole system and it found nothing. Windows clock works fine. Other Firefox functions seem to behave like normal. Other browsers are unaffected.

I filed a bug report and I'm thinking about trying the last extended support version to see if it still happens. I backed up the whole profile and I would like to keep all my data, including the cookies.

So, what can I do to try and get this fixed fast, and possibly keep my cookies, too? Thank you very much!

After updating to version 112 from 111.0.1 Firefox keeps forgetting logins and cookie settings on all websites. After closing and reopening the browser I have to sign in again and the websites will ask for cookie permissions.

I tried reverting to 111.0.1 and creating a new profile and it did not have the same issue. I also tried disabling all extensions in version 112, but that did not help.

I recently switched over to using an SSD, and I am trying to do everything I can to prevent unnecessary writing to that drive. I've already found instructions for moving the location of Firefox's Cache files to my secondary HDD, but I haven't been able to do the same for Cookies; they're still being stored on my C: drive, in the AppData folder.

Is it possible to change the path that Firefox uses to store Cookies? If it is possible, how?

Despite have used Firefox for many years, I am still not completely clear on why there are two separate areas for cookie settings, and how everything works together. In Cookies and Site Data: I check Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed. In Manage Exceptions, the listed domains I choose will not be deleted, but all other domains will. Correct? In History: I uncheck Always use private browsing mode, and I check Clear History when Firefox closes. In the Clear Recent History box, I uncheck Cookies and Site Settings. Question: Will be above choices in both areas get me where I want to be, which is retaining cookies for chosen protected sites, while deleting cookies for all others whenever Firefox is closed? If this is where a lot of people want to be, why are these choices presented in such a complicated way? If relevant, under Enhanced Tracking Protection I choose Custom, and leave all the boxes checked. The sites I choose to use seem to perform well with this option. Is this Security & Privacy area in Settings in need of reworking for ease and clarity?

Can anybody tell me why "Prince" James Charling who started s--- with me and talks (types) a whole lotta smack from the safety of his home 1662 El Dorado Ave San Jose is the biggest PUSSY that I've had the pleasure of not meeting. Pull up or shut up you clown. He and Gina Charling are a couple of weirdos. Good for the both of you you guys you're good at hacking peoples computers and spying on them. What you want a cookie. I'm glad y'all took such a great interest in my life 4 years ago and being all up in my business, which only leads me to believe that you're both miserable, can't stand one another and your marriage is and has been a complete failure and waste of time. My boy come get some already. one last thing to my 2 biggest and only fans, followers and stalkers you really need to start paying me for all the unknowingly peep shows I perform for you. Fkn WEIRDOS!!

Hi Mozilla community,

The Developer Tools -> Storage -> Cookies pane shows cookies currently being stored by Firefox.

If I close my browser, these cookies are automatically deleted. However, if I follow the steps on [1], the cookies are still there, and don't get deleted. *Why?*

Thanks in advance!

Steps to reproduce:

- Start a new Firefox session
- Open Developer Tools -> Storage -> Cookies and see that the list is empty
- Go to youtube.com and click Accept All on the cookies popup
- Developer Tools -> Storage -> Cookies now shows a cookie from YouTube, as per the attached screenshot
- Go to Settings->Privacy & Security->Cookies and Site Data -> Clear Data -> Clear
- Go back to Developer Tools -> Storage -> Cookies and click on the refresh icon
- The YouTube cookie is still there
- However either of the following actions will correctly delete this cookie:

1) closing firefox (with Always Use Private Browsing Mode enabled) 2) manually deleting the cookie from the list in Developer Tools -> Storage -> Cookies

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.
