I have 3 accounts on a particular website. All three account login credentials are saved in firefox however one of them (the wrong one, since it is the one I use least often) is pre-filled when I first go to the site. How do I remove the setting that one of them is pre-filled? I want just the regular drop-down choice of all three. I have deleted that accounts credentials and cleared the cache, but as soon as I add the account info again, it is automatically pre-filled instead of just listed with the other two options.

I put items in a cart on a website that I accessed through firefox. I did not sign into any accounts on the website and I did not purchase the items. I then cleared my cookies, cache, and offline data. Later on I went back to the website and wanted to put items back in the cart to re-price everything and discovered that the items were still in the cart from before. I cleared cookies, etc. again and the items were still in the cart. I then went to the website on Chrome and the items were still in the cart. Again, I did not sign into any accounts or anything. I never use Chrome. Just went straight to the website on Chrome and went to the cart and the items were there even though I didn't use Chrome to put anything in the cart. I then cleared cookies, etc. on Chrome and the items were still in the cart. I tried this on Edge and same thing. I have used Bitdefender, Malwarebytes, Hitman Pro, and CC Cleaner and no program is finding the malware or spyware or trojan or whatever this is. This is a well-known website that even has a facebook page. I messaged the webmaster and I posted on their facebook page and I'm being ignored. What is this and how do I get rid of it?

Work-around: WebSDR sites won't save memories stored on my computer

Edit: Rewritten from scratch on Wednesday, June 16, 2021:

I am running the new Firefox 89.0 on Linux. Under the Edit menu, the Preferences option is now called Settings.

Please open Settings and search for site data. This displays the pertinent settings for Cookies and Site Data, and for History.

A Web SDR site is a website that gives each of its visitors the ability to tune a Software Defined Radio chip to a different frequency, independent of other users' listening preferences. The audio is streamed back to the user.

It requests that the user supply a user name, often a ham radio operator's callsign. This is used to display on the radio dial where each user is listening. If a name is missing, the user's IP address is used.

A cookie is stored with the user name, and if that cookie survives to the next visit to the site, the name does not have to be re-entered.

The web SDR can allow users to save custom memory presets, and cookies are said to be used to save memory presets "on your computer," and not on the server.

I had set cookie preferences for each site to always allow cookies, and my username was indeed carried over from one browser session to another. But my presets were never saved.

I finally discovered that it was not a cookie, but offline site data storage on my computer that retains these presets.

Under the History section in Preferences of earlier versions of Firefox, I told Firefox to use custom settings, and then I had set first- and third-party cookies to be allowed for the session. I told Firefox to Clear history when it closes, and in the "Settings ..." dialog, I unchecked everything but cache and offline site data. Only cache and offline site data were deleted.

The History section in Settings in FF 89.0 is still set for Firefox to use custom settings, but cookie options are not listed. I still tell Firefox to Clear history when it closes, and the "Settings ..." dialog is the same.

In the Cookies and Site Data section in Settings, I tell Firefox to Delete cookies and site data when it is closed. In the "Exceptions ..." dialog, I enter the address of the website and hit "Always" for everything entered, to save the site's cookies and data from the bulldozer.

It occurred to me that there are two duplicate means to clear cookies and site data.

I went to History and opened the "Settings ... " dialog again and cleared the checkbox for offline site data.

NOW my stored memories on the Web SDR sites are still here! In Firefox 89, do not use History's Clear history when Firefox closes to delete cookies or site data, for that will blow away the cookies that were saved in the Cookies and Site Data's Exceptions!

The browser was overhauled, and History's handling of cookies and site data became obsolete.

I do have a question here: If I am on a site, I can click on the lock in the address bar to retrieve a series of screens that lead me to the Security tab, and to its left, the Permissions tab. By selecting the Permissions tab, I can set the site's permissions for cookies and for persistent storage of site data.

If I set to allow cookies and allow site data in Permissions, does that enter the site address into the Settings' Cookies and Site Data's Exceptions dialog? Or must I still copy the address of the site and go to Settings and enter that in Exceptions also?

Hi!

My Problem is, whenever I want to add a bookmark (favorite) to the bookmarks toolbar with active logins like - gmail/twitch/twitter etc, it won't save the bookmark. It will save any bookmark when I'm not logged in but this is really weird. What has changed and why can't I do this? Is there any way to add bookmarks with active logins to a toolbar? I might have to switch browsers if not :(

I search help from guidehttps://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions but nothing is suitable for my issue.

I just made a clean install of windows. It seems that firefox for some bizarre reason won't accept cookies from some sites.

For example at www.office.com, when I click "sing in" and I set up my credentials, I am still at the same "sign in" page. The problem can be easier understood in the following capture. (excuse the watermark)

I have the same issue with other sites, such as my bank, IRS, etc etc, making firefox practically unusable. Is there any fix for this?

Is it possible to create a whitelist for when I deleting cookies and history at once? Recently, the number of sites that log in and authenticate by reading the QR code with a smartphone has increased, so I do not want to whitelist and delete cookie of such sites. It's very annoying to re-authenticate with your smartphone every time. But other than that, I want to delete everything every time I log off.

So for a while now on my Mac and on my Windows 10 machine Firefox keeps forgetting my cookies. So I have to signing back in its very annoying to say the least. I have checked the settings and FireFox says I have over 1GB of saved Cookie data. I also do not have "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" selected. I am at a loss to figure this out?
