When I highlight the offending item and click 'remove selected' it disappears. 'Save changes' takes me to the confirmation page, but the cookies are not there and clicking 'confirm' achieves nothing. Next time I look the same item is back again. Any thoughts on what it might be, and how I can kill it?

If you look at the attached image you can easily see what my problem is. Because I can't make exceptions for various websites those websites will remain broken unless I change the Global settings for cookies... which makes the Exceptions - Content Blocking UI redundant.

Oh I guess I should throw in a question. Is there a way to manually add websites to the exception list? Through some convoluted user unfriendly configuration file or some such?

Hello,

I am removing my browsing history frequently, and this includes two-factor authentication tokens as well (for Outlook, Gmail, which I use frequently). And I would like to preserve this ones specifically when removing all history. Would like to see an option to make exclusions for specific domains, so I can clear all history without having to authenticate agàin with 2-fa and my smartphone. This is my struggle. 2-fa is not fun this way. It could be a good idea, what do you think?

Kind regards, Lajos

I've tried all the solutions I've found in other, similar questions:

Yes, I've turned off blocking for those sites. I've gone through all the cookie domains I can find under Site Information>Cookies, then added those as "Allow" on Preferences>Privacy & Security>Cookies & Site Data>Manage Permissions I've gone to Preferences>Privacy & Security>History, and Private Browsing is not forced, and I checked "Remember browsing and download history" I've gone to Preferences>Privacy & Security>History, checked "Clear history when Firefox closes", UNchecked everything but "Cache", then restarted the browser Under Preferences>Privacy & Security>Cookies & Site Data, "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" is NOT checked

So, have I missed anything? Those two sites are two of my startup tabs, and it's a huge pain to log into them every time. (I also have 2FA turned on everywhere I can, so for Google services it's an extra pain, and I won't be able to log in if I don't have my phone handy.)

Thanks in advance for any help!

I constantly have to go over login procedures again and again, like Gmail, Whatsapp Web or Facebook, after restarting my browser or laptop. I'm also on a news site, www.telegraaf.nl, which shows me the same push notification in every tab I open. This because I open every article I want to read in a new tab, where every tab I always start with dismissing the push notification.

How can I make sure that I stay logged in for my favorite sites and apps. And that I get rid of these push notifications on every tab? It probably has something to do with cookie settings, but I've tried every possible option and settings from the options menu and at this point I'm clueless.

Hi,

First time posting on these forums. I am trying to learn how to defend myself against annoying tracking cookies, without downloading third-party software (just because).

As I am using FireFox I had a quick search on the web for the storage location of cookies from FireFox.

I've found the profile folder where cookies.sqlite should be but it isn't there. All there is is a few folders, listed:

cache2 jumpListCache OfflineCache safebrowsing startupCache thumbnails

Most of the folders have files that are encoded somehow so I can't read them. cache2 has two interesting folders in it, one in particular called "doomed". I opened one of the random files in it and it is some (presumably) JavaScript file that identifies itself as a "SurveyGizmo Interceptor Survey Beacon".

I am running the latest version of Windows 10

Can anyone point me where I need to go, please?

Why does the following happen? Firefox 67.0.4

1) In the options menu I have "Block all third party cookies" as the main option.

2) In "Manage permissions" I have blocked both http://google.com as well as https://google.com.

3) I remove all the cookies with the word "google" in them.

4) I do a single google search.

5) Again, I have 6 cookies set by google. :-(

The same thing seems to be happening with twitter and youtube (normally I don't visit either, but I occasionally unsuspectingly click a link taking me there).

Hello,

I think the screnshot and title are self explanatory. Now, Firefox blocks Cookies on my Linksys EA6100 configuration page. I have "Content Blocking" set to "Standard" with no exceptions set. However, even if I set 192.168.1.1 as an exception, it still blocked it. I have never tinkered with "Content Blocking" so this should be the out-of-the-box setup.

It worked fine in previous versions, although not exactly sure exactly which versions, since I do not access the router settings page all that often. Also, it works fine in Chrome.

Windows 10 Pro 1903, Firefox 69.0 (x64)

After updating to Firefox 70, many websites that were previously working do not work when I navigate to them. However, if I clear the cookies related to that site, then the website works normally again. I've been having to do this for many websites and it's getting tedious. Furthermore, I've had to do this multiple times to the same sites after having cleared cookies previously. For these repeat non-functionality incidents, they come up after reopening the browser, but not every time the browser is quit.

I have not been able to sign on to Suntrust Online Banking for a couple of days. I get error message 'HTTP Status 400 – Bad Request'. I have cleared cache, updated Firefox, restarted browser, rebooted computer.

I can sign onto my account with Chrome and Edge.

I am using Firefox 67.0.1 64-bit under Windows 10.

I contacted Suntrust and they say it is a Firefox issue, not their issue.
