I have cookies-blocking enabled through Firefox. Often, when I go to websites, I'll see banners that indicate the sites use cookies and that say by clicking anywhere on page, I am agreeing to the use of cookies. When I click on the page and keep looking at it, does the page indeed apply cookies to my computer/my work or do my Firefox settings prevent this from happening?

http://www.websudoku.com/ is losing cookies (options selected and level of Sudoku). This has worked in past. Additional info. If I leave page and select Sudoku page again - cookies are gone. It is not a matter of closing my browser or even my tab.

I have a particular site I work with daily. It requires a cookie to allow access form any device. The cookie has a life of 3 months. In my Firefox setting I have NOT set delete cookies on closing Firefox and I have set this domain as an exception always to be allowed. This morning, and on 3 other recent occasions, I have been able to access this site but suddenly, while the PC (Windows 10 64-bit) is still running and Firefox has not been closed I find I have to re-enter the cookie from the application because it has been deleted. Other cookies are still there. Last night I did run virus scanners and CC-Cleaner BUT this cookie was there this morning and has been for 4 hours until it disappeared. On the previous 3 occasions I had not run any scanners. Any ideas? Also, as an aside, in Firefox we used to be able to click on a domain to examine the cookies - whay has this been removed?

Hey, since FF 64 B13 there are some changes which broke our APP but I cannot find a solution. When we log into our internal website, we are immediately logged out again as soon as I click a link there. You can see that after loading the page, a control cookie "CmdCookie" is reset to an initial value so that you are directed to the login page. All other cookies remain unchanged. With FF64 Beta 12 everything worked without any problems. Does anyone know where the problem could be? If I turn off all the chaches then I can log in, but sporadically I keep being kicked out.

Thanks in advance and have a nice day! Max

Whenever I clear cache, exit firefox and then reopen, there is always a different amount of data in 'cached web content', like 55kb, or 27kb etc.

Why is this? :)

I wondered if it was the firefox homepage storing data in the cache, but when I clear cache, and then open another firefox homepage, it shows 0kb.

Problem with login on specific sites only - Login not possible or forgotten - Incognito mode works fine

Hello,

I have a problem with login on a few selected sites. On some sites I cannot login at all, on other sites I can log in, but as soon as I don't interact with the website for a few seconds the login is lost and the next click on any link shows me a "not logged in"-state.

For example on my companies Outlook Web Access site, when I enter my account info and click on "Sign In", it briefly shows a loading screen and then takes me back to the login site. On another webiste I can log in and use the website without problems, but not clicking anything for more than ~5 seconds leads to the login being lost. The strange thing is: in incognito mode everything works fine on both sites!?

Firefox is 87.0, I have already deleted all cookies and stored data.

How to disable First party cookie isolation for one site.

I have an exstention that talks with the site, but it cant talk to it unless I have first party cookie isolation disabled. How can I disable it for one site only?

Also, what is the difference between not having first party cookie isolation and having it on.

v 91.0.1 on Mac Tried 2 ways. No effect. - Settings >> Privacy and Security >> Cookies and Site Data >> Manage Data, or Clear Data--both leave cookies after Removing or Clearing All. Looks like 16 MB of cookies remain--from 2-3 weeks old. Tried repeatedly-- the list is cleared (while selecting remove All), then immediately comes back in entirety once I check again.

- Menu >> History >> Clear Recent History >> Clear All, "Everything" >> No effect.

- I deleted a Firefox profile that was not in use. No effect.

THX for guidance. best to All.

Websites frequently pop up a message telling me to approve their use of cookies. If I decline, many times the web page becomes inaccessible.

If I ‘Accept’, does that circumvent my Firefox settings for cookies, either by changing the settings or by putting the website on an ‘Exceptions’ list? Or can I rely on my Firefox settings being unchanged and enforced even if I click ‘Accept’?

Sample popup: “We use cookies to improve user experience, personalize advertisements, and analyze website traffic. For these reasons, we may share your site usage data with our social media, advertising, and analytics partners. By clicking ‘Accept’, you agree to our website’s cookie use as described in our Cookie Policy. You can change your cookie settings at any time by clicking ‘Preferences’.”

The buttons are ‘Preferences’, ‘Decline’, and ‘Accept’.

Thanks.

Several Firefox updates ago, I lost the ability to retain cookies in Firefox. The result is I have to keep signing into websites (e.g., Amazon, Facebook), rather than the websites "remembering" me, which is how it had been for years.

I keep trying to add these (and other) website to Cookies "Manage Exceptions" - but I'm unable to select "Allow". When I do, only "Allow for Sessions" is selected for each website. And even "Allow for Sessions" doesn't last. The websites are gone the next time I open Settings.

Ask to save logins and passwords for websites is selected. "Remember browsing history" IS selected.

Despite a number of updates, this problem has persisted. Please help.

there seems to be a problem when the web site you go to has a extension or calls an outside source to load an add on program within the site which causes a 404 error. I don't know if it is caused by an update or not. But using MS edge everything works and loads as it did before on fire fox. Is there a change in the SW that could have caused this to happen?
