Hello everyone, I was following a privacy guide and i changed the cookies settings in about:config . I set the value of network.cookie.cookieBehavior to 4, which according to this article means that total cookies protection is disabled. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/total-cookie-protection-and-website-breakage-faq

My questions are the following:

1- How do i enable total cookies protection after what i changed  ?


2-Which is better from a privacy point of view setting network.cookie.cookieBehavior to 4 or enabling total cookies protection?

Thank you all for taking the time to read my subject/questions .

Recently updated to version 105.0.1 and I've started to have problems with Twitch. I'm unable to login and keep getting the message: "Something went wrong. Please try again." so I cleared the cookies/site data. Still unable to login. I know this isn't an error with my account as I can login via Chrome with no issues. Then I tried downgrading to the previous version 104.0.2 and had no issues with Twitch. Most likely, this new version is creating an error with the Twitch site. Hopefully new updates will address this issue - in the meantime, hoping someone has a solution.

checking box within a Tab on yahoo mail will immediately open that entry and then freeze further operation until the screen is shut down. This happens on my wife's HP lap top i5 Pavilion 4.00 ram. ie: inbox tab will show a number of email - a dozen or so - followed by grey empty areas. The tab indicates 100+ total in inbox. Selecting one box opens the email but locks up any activity on that email & must be shut down to exit. The identical situation happens when I access my email on her machine. She is using Firefox 105.0.1 HOWEVER, on my machine, HP desktop AMD A8 8.00 Ram, both email addresses do not lock up, multiple boxes can be checked and work as expected. My desk top uses Firefox 104.4 This began happening within the past couple of weeks and I can not debug the situation. Any pointers ??

I have Firefox set to re-open with any tabs; that were open when it was closed; restored. Six months ago I had a crash and Firefox correctly re-opened with the three Tabs that I had open when I had the crash. Over time, and many sessions, I closed the original three and used many others. However every week or so, and totally at random, it re-opens the original three. I have found it impossible to get rid of them. Any suggestions please?

This issue has only started recently, and I have done extensive testing. As I recently switched to FiOS and the issues started at the same time i first thought this was a router problem, however other web browsers have no problems, and it is exclusively Firefox. (I have checked this with Verizon support already and because this is exclusive to Firefox there was not much they could do other than help confirm with other browsers everything seems fine)

The problem specifically: While browsing any web page, Firefox will seem loose connection to the internet briefly. The best way to describe the problem is: for about 30 seconds Firefox is fine, then for about 10 it will lose connection, then Firefox will regain full connection for another 30 seconds. Some websites like YouTube help me confirm this as I will attempt to open a video. The web page will load part way, then YouTube will say there is no internet connection, and after a few seconds it will then load again with the error page changing back to the video. This happens for any website I visit, trying a google search, browsing social media sites, or even navigating these help pages.

Testing: I have tested my router with other devices and there are no problems. I have tested using other web browsers and they do not have any problems. To test further, I have had a stream playing on another other browser (Microsoft Edge) while trying to replicate the problem to confirm it is not my internet connection. There is no interruption in the stream, and I still can replicate the problem on Firefox for any website.

Problem Solving Attempted: I have tried disabling my firewall, I have examined all of my router's settings, and I have tried clearing my browsing history. None of this worked. I confirmed that I am using the most up to date version of Firefox and have tried using prior versions to no avail. I have also tried following all of the steps in a few of the help topics in Firefox help with no results: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-cant-load-websites-other-browsers-can and https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/websites-dont-load-troubleshoot-and-fix-errors. I have also confirmed my drivers are up to date and tried resetting my computers network socket.

I don't know why Firefox refuses to run properly now, any help would be appreciated. I know I wrote a short novel there, but I wanted to be as detailed as I could because none of the 'typical' fixes have worked, and I have tried many less than typical solutions too.

Thank you for anything you can offer Michael

About 3 months (or so!) ago, Firefox stopped saving the setting:

Logins and Passwords

   Ask to save logins and passwords

I set it for it to always ask, if I don't, any saved passwords won't load when signing into a site. Now, each day, or anytime I close Firefox, I have to click on Settings and click inside the box. Once I do that, the passwords will load for me.

I have untinstalled and reinstalled Firefox.

Any suggestions or do you know if anyone else has experienced this issue?

hi, back a month later after posting this ( https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1387447 )

i didn't get a chance to implement the solution because by the time i had received it, i had already opened everything back up manually, and closed out firefox multiple times (when i first started up and noticed missing tabs), which i presume created a new session. i can soundly say its happened and i think i've pinned down the issue. it seems that when i update firefox, it restarts tabs from around the time of the previous update. is there something that could be causing this? i've scrounged my session back up data, and none of them contain my previous tabs, and my alternate session doesn't either. my actual previous tabs are shown in my recent history, so there should be no reason it opens tabs from august right? this time after the update firefox disabled all of my add-ons and my theme, which it has never done to me before.

(i also noticed two login.json from may and june respectively that have been labelled corrupt. could that be an issue? my latest one however, seems uncorrupted, from the day of and day before posting this reply.)

if you could kindly help me, please do. thank you in advance.

Hello, ever since we moved endpoints from Firefox ESR 91.13 to 102.3, it has become impossible to play any media with Firefox.

No video will play in youtube, for instance (it just loads endlessly as if it would start, but it doesn't).

Can't use radio websites either. Anything with a "play" button (video or sound) does nothing.

This has been tested with a clean profile, a clean install, after allowing autoplay in the settings.

Is there any info on what exactly changed between ESR 91 and 102 that might explain this ? There has been no system change, If I reinstall 91 instead it works again as usual.

No issues anywhere else on the endpoints (Edge, Windows), this is on Windows 10 if it makes any difference.

Tanks for any help on this.

I have been using sync from day one: best thing ever regarding my productivity. AFAIK, credentials get encrypted before sent to the FF cloud, using information derived from my password.

Short version: what happens when I change the Firefox account password?

Long version: I'm thinking of replacing my current password, with a very long one. If I do so, will there a re-upload of my data take place? Will my credentials on the cloud become harder to crack (assume that the new password is longer and more complex).

I've taken a number of steps that I've researched ranging from clearing cookies, to resetting firefox, to complete reinstallation of Firefox itself.

I've also ran a full diagnostic with my ISP and determined my router and internet are 100% functional. This just started happening out of nowhere roughly 3-4 days ago.

I have not installed any add ons or turned on any extentions. I've done nothing to customize my browser at all.

When I go to Youtube, either I can't log in or when I am logged in it says I am not connected to the internet. This has never happened to me before.

Please help.
