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!

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

An advertisement appears on the to of the majority of web pages. It is always accompanied by the words "Ads not by this site". In some cases the area consumed by this add removes data from the bottom of the page and can not be recovered. This "feature" has appeared two days ago and I have tied, without success, to disable it.

It appears that most sites get my location from Mozilla Firefox. It is constantly incorrect and moves around. Today it was someplace in Texas and I live in Ohio. This is a desktop computer and doesn't move. I have set it on several sites and I don't delete my cookies but somewhere along the line it gets changed. It appears it gets changed in my Mozilla Firefox. I know you go off the dsl location or something but it just doesn't work. Even when it gets me in Ohio it's constantly a different city. How can I get a permanent location in Mozilla Firefox or disable the location finder in Mozilla Firefox?

Hi,

I'm wondering how to keep cookies from certain website when Firefox closes, for example I'm spending some time on www.kongregate.com it's a website with flash games and as you may suspect I'd like to keep my progress from those games for future visits, however whenever I close Firefox it automatically deletes files from "C:\Users\<me>\AppData\Roaming\Macromedia\Flash Player\#SharedObjects\########\assets.kongregate.com\", that file has saves from games from kongregate and I want to keep that, anyway I'll post a list of my Privacy settings to help you help me achieve what I'm writing here about also "ON" means that box has check mark and "OFF" that it doesn't:


Tracking:

-Tell websites I do not want to be tracked - ON


History:

-Firefox will: Use custom settings for history

-Always use private browsing mode - OFF

-Remember my browsing and download history - OFF

-Remember search and form history - OFF

-Accept cookies from sites - ON (I've added www.kongregate.com as well as *www.kongregate.com* to exception list with "Allow" option)

-Accept third-party cookies - ON

-Keep until: I close Firefox

-Clear history when Firefox closes - ON


Location Bar:

-When using the location bar, suggest: Nothing


Options for "Clear history when Firefox closes

When I quit Firefox, it should automatically clear all:

History:

-Browsing History - ON

-Download History - ON

-Form & Search History - ON

-Cookies - ON (Corrected typo)

-Active Logins - OFF

-Cache - ON


Data:

-Saved Passwords - OFF

-Site Preferences - OFF

-DownThemAll! History & Queue - OFF (Not that this one matters)

-Offline Website Data - OFF


These are my current settings which I believe should allow me to keep cookies from kongregate while other cookies are being deleted, but if that is not the case please tell me which options should be set at what to allow me keep cookies from kongregate, if it is not possible to have that then please suggest me some extensions that would allow me to keep cookies from kongregate while deleting others.

Thanks in advance!

Hello,

I have a series of computers that run mozilla firefox. For some reason, firefox's cookie handling is turned off by default for everyone that would use a computer. I can enable it on a per-user basis, but that is tedious. Not to mention it totally confounds end users as to why some web-sites do not work. Is there a way to enable cookies for all users of a computer without having to re-sysprep and copy over a new default profile to each of the computers? Something in about:config maybe?

On my computer I have WinPatrol installed and at the close of every browsing session I used to make use of it's "view cookies" function to delete them. Recently I had reason to refresh FireFox and since then the view cookies function in WinPatrol no longer works. According to WinPatrol this is because the "filepath" to where cookies are stored has been deleted. Unfortunately I have no idea what the filepath is or how to restore it. If anybody out there could tell me what it is and how to restore it I should be eternally grateful. And yes, I do know that I am an idiot and should not be allowed near a computer that's why I'm asking for help. Thanks.

Using Firefox 16.0.1 under Windows 7

I want to use wget to script fetching some files, but I need the cookies from my login. wget lets you load from a cookies.txt file, but all I can find is cookies.sqlite, and that does not seem to work.

I am assuming that cookies.sqlite is an "improvement" over the older "cookies.txt" format ... but is there any way to export cookies to the old format (or just tell Firefox to use the old format)?
