How to adjust cookies to stop Refresh Every add-on froom redirecting me back to the login?

Refresh Every add-on works on every site except one. I can login to the specific site, but cannot proceed to anything on that site as it will always take me back to the login page. I received a fix half a year ago and remember it was super easy, something to do with the cookies. I cannot find that email anymore nor is my question on the "MY QUESTIONS" tab on the support page. This keeps happening about twice every year. I haven't made any changes to the mozilla settings other than to fix it the last time. I'll make sure to tattoo it to my body this time so I won't lose the fix. Thanks for the support.

FF can't find this page (in help section): Why is FF44 NOT prompting me for cookies? My answer on whether to accept them or not or not or for session[cut off]

[Your initial question field cut off the quote I tried to give you to locate the problem. I hope that what remains is enough for you to find it.]

1--I was trying to find a way to make FF handle cookies the way I need it to. I clicked around in your help file until I arrived at the user submission quoted above -- which is *exactly* the same as my problem. When I clicked on it, FF said "page not found." Very frustrating.

2--Please tell me how to have FF prompt me about storing *all levels of* cookies involved in a web site on my computer. I have already tried various settings on your Options-Privacy page (including those in your help file) *and* the "View Page Info" page. When I use the settings you suggest, many web sites will not function correctly, even if I'm not ordering anything or making other kind of choices, etc.

Internet Explorer functioned exactly as I need it to, i.e.: I set it to prompt me before storing both first-party and third-party cookies. When it displayed the prompt, the options were to allow or not allow (for now), plus you could tell it always to apply your allow/not allow choice to that web site in the future.

Please tell me how to make Firefox behave like that -- of course, it doesn't have to be exactly the same buttons, etc., but the function has to be the same. As it is now, it seems you can't stop Firefox from allowing cookies, or certain types of them; I hope that's not true.

3--Lately I've been noticing ads coming up in separate Firefox instances (additional Firefox icon(s) displayed when you Alt+Tab between open programs). One of them even read my IP address. I am very upset about this. How do I turn that off? I looked in your help file and there's nothing about this. (I use a major antivirus program and keep it strictly up to date and run scans often.)

Thank you for your help.

Earlier today I clicked on a link from a medical provider portal. Yes, secured. I logged in, took care of some business, logged out. Later I got an email telling me there was a message. This is all pretty normal and I have done it often. When I tried to connect to the website via their link and then from the browser address manually, I got this:

The page isn't redirecting properly Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete. This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.

Well, I checked my cookie settings and they are open (accept cookies). I have not changed any security setting or cookie settings nor have I added any ad blocking software since this morning.

I used another browser (Chrome) and connected in about 2 seconds. Firefox is my preferred browser. This is frustrating. I have the latest version of Firefox, and the latest updated version of Windows 7.

Same Cookie Prompts Each Time Firefox Starts

I am running Firefox 28.0 on Windows 7 Professional 32-bit. Every time I start Firefox (It crashes frequently) I get the same cookie prompts. On each one the "remember" box is checked. What does this "remember" box signify? If I tell Firefox that I do not want to save a cookie for site X, then I expect that Firefox will remember this, and if I visit the site again, then Firefox will not prompt me to ask if I want to save a cookie for that site.

I only want to use Firefox, but for the longest time I've had to keep Chrome as a backup browser because that is the only way I can view my gmail account. I want to view it on Firefox, but a cookies issue won't let me. Every time I go into my privacy settings and change it to custom, it never stays. I will change it, and immediately go back to the privacy settings and notice that my last changes haven't been saved. I reset my Firefox to factory settings, as well as started my Firefox in safe mode and tried to see if add-ons would be causing an issue (they weren't, as add-ons are disabled in safe mode and gmail still wouldn't let me in...). How can I make my privacy settings stay permanently to my custom settings please? I would very much like to get rid of chrome and only use Firefox.

Alright I have nothing happen when I put something in the google search on the start page. It just sits there. I the awesome bar it works. I have searched a long time to find the answer and have had no LUCK. I am using Zorin 7.1 in VMWare. I have cleared cooking, Cache, and reset FF 26 several times all with no success. I would like to fix this.

This is my first time with a question here is it emailed or how do I get an answer?

When I go to erase cookies, none are showing up even though I have them enabled. This has just started happening since I reinstalled Firefox. I do not have privacy mode enabled. I was having a lot of trouble connecting to a particular site so I uninstalled Firefox then reinstalled it. Since then I am not able to see what cookies are on my computer. Also, I still have issues connecting to the site in question.
