After I noticed this Local Moxie (18 March 2013) had replaced all Firefox searches, I went to Google and looked this up and discovered that it is malware or worse. I have done all that Google said to do for removing cookies from this Local Moxie as well as page info and blocking it, in the tools section and I cannot get rid of it. Has anyone else had this problem and does anyone know how I can remove it, please?

sempre navego com a opcao de cookies desabilitada por completo e faço questao de limpar completamente todos os cookies quando termino o uso de qualquer serviço que exija o uso dos mesmos. porem um teste com o hitmanpro mostra que embora eu esteja com os cookies desabilitados limpos e nao existe nenhum cookie na lista do firefox existe um tracking cookie doubleclick.net armazenado no cookies.sqlite. sendo assim ja nao confio mais no firefox que tem mantido tracking cookies secretos mesmo contra a vontade dos usuarios. fico no aguardo de alguma explicacao da vossa parte diga se de nota que neste exato momento tenho os cookies ativados unicamente porque voces assim o exigem para que possamos postar uma questao

i always surf with the option of cookies completely disabled and I always clear all cookies when I finish using any service that requires their use. but a test with hitmanpro shows that even though I'm with cookies disabled and there is not any cookie from the list of firefox, there is a tracking cookie stored in cookies.sqlite a doubleclick.net. therefore i do not trust more in firefox who has keeping secret tracking cookies even against the wishes of the users. I'm waiting for some explanation from you

This is not the ff remember passwords. It is the website provided login with the remember me checkbox. It has worked in the past (pre win8 and earlier versions of ff....definitely not since win8, but cannot tie directly to ff18) except when I ran ccleaner which would somehow remove the 'cookie".

I have played with all the FF options I can relate to the problem without success.

The FF remember me works, but I have to type in the user name before it will enter the password.

I've followed all the instructions for enabling the cookies, but I still can't get Gmail to open up. I can get Google to open, but not any of my Gmail accounts. I also can't force Google to set as my home page, but that's a minor problem compared to not being able to access any Gmail accounts from Firefox. I am NOT computer literate, so all advice needs to take into consideration that I won't automatically know every step to take along the way. I sure wish Mozilla would have a 1-800 number to call. That'd make this a whole lot easier.

For about a month now, Firefox (18.0.2) has been randomly logging me out of sites that I WANT to remember me (e.g. Facebook, Amazon, sites with forums I visit daily for work). It is driving me bonkers and it did NOT used to do this.

It does seem more likely to log me out of these sites when I have watched a Flash video. Help please?

Firefox 18.0.2 on a Windows 7 Pro 64-bit.

According to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/private-browsing-use-firefox-without-history#w_can-i-set-firefox-to-always-use-private-browsing to set your browser to always be using Private Browsing, you should set your settings to "Never Remember History". However, in Firefox 57+ there is now an option under "Use Custom Settings for History" called "Always use private browsing mode". What is the difference between these two options and is "Always use private browsing mode" new to Firefox Quantum (57)?

I just installed firefox. I was able to log into my major google mail account, but when I try to log into my second and third google mail account, i get a message 'cookies are not enabled". I checked and cookies are enabled but I still get the same message. I am not tech savvy and really don't know what to do now. I need to access my mail so this is a major hindrance. I like Mozilla and really don't want to go back to IE. I did all that was suggested, but the message persists. Did not find a simple anough answer in the forums. Please assist. Here is the message from google mail: We've detected a problem with your cookie settings. Enable cookies

My wife and I can't log into our Yahoo e-mail accounts (or, I guess, our Yahoo account). Whenever we try, we get the message: "The browser you're using refuses to sign in (cookies rejected)".

However, my cookies setting in Firefox is: 1) accept cookies 2) accept third-party cookies 3) keep cookies until they expire.

A few days ago I did change the cookie settings to 1) accept cookies from sites 2) do not accept cookies from sites 3) ask me every time. I also deleted a lot of cookies I didn't recognize or didn't want. I did this because I was (and still am) having trouble with a re-direction virus.

So if anyone has any suggestions as to what needs to be done to make Yahoo e-mail accessible again I would very much appreciate their advice.

I thank everyone for their advice in advance.

Thanks a million.
