I am unable to use the' how to enable cookies on Firefox, . i have tried to find the tools on firefix without success. When I click onthe bar on the top right hand side of the screen it opens but there is no 'OPTIONS' section shown.

Another problem is when I try  to add grammartically to  my firfefox browser it  does not add it.
I have been using an earlier version of Firefox without having any of these problems. When I try to sign into my virgin media  which I keep in my bookmarks it says that  cookies are not enabled in my browser. Something is rather strange with this browser and I await your comments.

I am having these problems with Firefox and do not want to change my default settings:

1. I can not track a package from UPS Worldship (UPS tech. can not figure it out). 2. Our products on Amazon that we sell do not add to cart. I have to go into History and clear out cookies and cache.

Can you give me a recommendation on correcting these problems?

Good day.

I use Firefox 94.0.1 and the latest version of CCleaner. I sometimes use the "Clear Storage Button" and "Cookie Auto Delete" addons.

My situation:

1. In Firefox, settings for clearing history, Cookie, Site settings and Cache boxes are NOT checked.

2. I do some surfing. Then I'll look in the FF "Cookies and Site Data" - Manage Data, and I see cookies.

3. *Without closing the browser*, but closing any active tabs and leaving *one* inactive tab (blank) in place.

4. I will, for instance, hit the "Clear Storage Button" - which is set up to clear cookies.

5. Looking back in the FF "Cookies and Site Data" - Manage Data, the cookies have been removed.

6. Launching CCleaner, then Options, Cookies: cookie data still shows up!!!

7. I repeat the process, same result.

8. If I then *close* FF and look again at the CCleaner, Options, Cookies, the cookies info is gone.

This is the same result with using either "Clear Storage Button" and "Cookie Auto Delete" addons.

So the situation I have is this:

- I can remove cookie data from FF using an addon.

- As long as I don't close FF completely, CCleaner will still show cookie data.

- Once I close FF completely, then cookie data in CCleaner goes away.

- Please look back at #1 above.

It seems as though an addon can delete cookies in FF, and FF shows they have been deleted, but CCleaner is still picking up some residual data from FF, or so it appears.

Sign me, "Got me boggled".

Thanks for any help.

SQLITE vs cookie storage

I know that cookies are stored in a SQLITE database. I use a Linux distro and as per the documentation I viewed the cookie file at location '~/.mozilla/firefox/PROFILE_FOLDER/cookies.sqlite' and I can view all the contents as expected.'

However, these two things are bugging me if someone can please help me:

(i) SQLITE isn't a server connected database (it just offers minimal functionality) and since cookies are something accessed by server side from http headers with every request how does that work out?

(ii) Session storage key value pairs are stored in '~/.mozilla/firefox/PROFILE_FOLDER/webappsstore.sqlite' however, when I create session storage key value pairs and without closing the tab if I try viewing the session key; I can't find the key value pairs. I tried with Local storage and it works however with session storage it does not show me the key value pair in database.

I’ve attached an image. I cleared the cookies and cache within the last 24 hours. I have been on both youtube and intuit today but not extensively.

I have ad blocker active on both youtube and intuit.

Hi Guys

Firefox does not remember logins!I know it is controlled by cookies and I have sought help here a few days ago.

No matter what I do and what I change I cannot get it save logins like to Brisbane Times .com.au which is set for my home page. I can go back and it will save the login but when I close a document or when the BT homepage renews it will not keep my login (Edge does). Every time I log into Twitter I have to log in again. The enhanced tracking is off for this site but no matter what I change I don't seem to be able to get it to remember my logins. I know this is cookie related so just don't seem to be able to get the combination. I have tried to follow all the FF help menues but to no avail. I would appreciate a step by step what to do if that is possible

Hello. I just updated to FF 94 but my confusion pre-dates the update. It would be most helpful to have a clear, concise, non-nerd jargon about how to keeps cookies. I normally delete cookies on domain change. This works for me!

I have a specific domain, a bank, that *now* charges me a fee to log in and check my account: two-step verification. The bank says that if I don't delete their cookies when I log off then I won't be charged a fee the next time I try to log in. Fair enough.

After looking through the Firefox / Mozilla explanations on how to keep cookies, what I read is not clear. Lets start here: many of the explanations show images of the about:config: "Cookies and Site Data. What I see on my screen is not what is presented in the proposed solution. Example: at this page https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1287495 it shows "Manage Permissions". On my screen it says "Manage Exceptions". There is a big difference in understanding between "Permissions" and "Exceptions" and seeing as how I don't know what "Permissions" mean then I'm left with a hole in my understanding of how to proceed. This might sound a minor point to make, but I can not find a clear, up-to-date (FF 93) how to keep selected cookies. So please let me state clearly what I want to know and hopefully a clear, concise answer may appear.

- I want to keep specific cookies, from a specific domain, that were loaded into FF during a session. - The next time I attempt to login to that specific domain, the previously saved (hopefully) cookies will be recognized by the domain and allow me to log in without further charges.

For my purposes the "Cookies and Site Data - Manage Data" function is not relevant. I don't need to make a special election to allow cookies from my bank, nor am I trying to restrict cookies from entering the browser. I simply want to save particular stored cookies for the next attempted login to a specific domain.

Please, and with respect: clear, concise, simple language that is attuned with the visuals / graphics / images of FF 93.

Thank you in advance and wishing you healthy times.

Big Sur. certain sites FFx doesn't seem to be able to auto log in as it had with prior to v90. I have set up Cookies & Site Data/Manage exceptions. Some sites I have multiple accts with and firefox used to give me the option of choosing which acct to sign in with by popping up the accts. Now I have to delete whichever comes up (last used) to get that popup.

I have been trying to login to Coral Knowledge Base Website and a small window comes up headed "Cookies required to use Firefox" and then states " To continue signing in using Firefox, allow cookies to be stored on this device. You might see this screen more than once." I have clicked the continue link at least a dozen times but the message does not disappear and I can not sign in, the sign in button is faded out.

Hello. I've been having issues with downloading any type of file from Google Drive on Firefox. The issues I'm experiencing directly match what is mentioned in [support article] but this user uses Windows. 'I'm getting this problem on Arch Linux instead. Outside of Linux, I do not experience any issues with downloads from Google Drive.

So far, I've tried all the methods; From downloading from a private window, to disabling cookies -- I've even completely disabled any protection settings and add-ons such as uBlock Origin/DDG, but also re-installing Firefox. In the latter it kept my data, so it might not have been a fresh re-install.

What could be the cause of this problem? This issue does not seem to happen on other browsers. While I can use that as a workaround, I'd like to know the cause to prevent it from happening in the future.

Thanks!
