Youtube on firefox does not function properly, including but not limited to use of cookies due to antivirus

On Youtube, on a clean, up to date version of Firefox 64-bit, Youtube will not stay signed in, either on its on board hotbar on the left, the main center console in and outside of individual video pages, or both. Attempting to sign in via the normal means usually sends the user back to the main page as if they had not signed in at all (and if the account is signed in for a given attempt, it will only remain so until the page changes, for example when a search is conducted or a video loaded), and the sign in button on the hotbar is completely non-functional. Additionally, Youtube's other functions such as commenting, saving videos, accessing video history for an account, accessing or creating playlists, etc, do not work at all on Firefox 64 in this instance. This remains the case even when all of the troubleshooting options, such as changing assorted cookies settings, cleaning the cookies that are stored, changing how cookies are stored and what sites have permissions to store or save cookies, changing which are deleted regularly and from which sites or how which are to be deleted is determined, running a clean install of the browser, running the browser as an admin, turning off all ad-ons, running the browser in safe or secret modes (and also these as an admin and not, each), adding Youtube as an exception for tracking protection, and so far as completely uninstalling and reinstalling the entire browser do not fix or change the problem. The problem is not persistent on Chrome or Edge, only on Firefox, and changing which Firefox account is attempting to sign in, or which other accounts (Google, Youtube, etc) are signed in also has no change. Another post with the same problem has determined the source to be Kaspersky Antivirus, however the only posted solution in that thread is to turn off the antivirus, which considering that doing so leaves one's computer unprotected is not actually a solution - I'm maintaining this thread in the search for an actual solution.

PS - While I will be contacting Kaspersky as well to see if we can come about a solution on their end, the fact that no other browser that has been tried replicates this problem, even in the presence of an active Kaspersky agent, indicates that the problem is not with their software, but rather with Mozilla specifically.

Blocking all cookies on Apple other than those listed as exceptions

Hi:

Two questions:

1. I would like to block all cookies for all websites (at once, not one-by-one by website) and allow cookies only for websites identified as exceptions. I know how to enter the exception one-by-one, but could not figure out the rest. Is there a way to do this?

2. I entered 3 websites (one-by-one) to block them from storing cookies (in Manage exceptions). They show up on the list (under Manage Exceptions), but under Manage Data, these websites still stored cookies. Then I went to one of these websites and selected View Page Info>Permissions and selected blocking cookies. The website still stored cookies. How can one prevent websites that appear to be selected to block, to actually block storage of cookies? Either I am doing something incorrectly or this doesn't work.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hello, I use Microsoft Teams daily and I recently switched to firefox. Everything is great so far except that when I try to login to teams I'm stuck in an endless loop and never succeed to login. I searched and found that it is a cookies issue and I should allow the following cookies:

   [*.]microsoft.com
   [*.]microsoftonline.com
   [*.]teams.skype.com
   [*.]teams.microsoft.com
   [*.]sfbassets.com
   [*.]skypeforbusiness.com

However, this format does not work with firefox and I tried placing a normal URL of each like : https://microsoft.com but it didn't work. So what is the format equivalent in firefox to these to whitelist these cookies

Where is the persistent storage location for inprivate "session" cookies stored?

For example, I sign into instagram.com in a private window my session is stored in a persistent cookie but this cookie does not appear within the cookie manager. about:preferences#privacy > manage data.

I realize the cookie is dumped on private session close...

How would I access my private session cookies? I don't believe they are stored in a .sqlite table is there a way to access them within memory? How does firefox access them?


Thanks.

Hello everyone. Like the title says I am seeing a lot of these type cookies being left over in Ccleaner after I close Firefox. (Please see attached image.) I have had as many as over 300 of these type cookies in Ccleaner so apparently Firefox is not clearing out these types of cookies when I close my browser like it is suppose to do with cookies etc. etc. Could someone shed some light on this whether this is now normal to see these type cookies for websites that I visit and why Firefox does not remove them when I close the browser and if not what can I do to remedy this. I have read that Firefox has enhanced its tracking prevention and was wondering if this could be the result.

I tried three different ways, 10 times, to clear the "Cached Web Content" not matter what I do (6.0KB) remains?

Can someone please help me out here? I cleared and cleared, restarted the machine... I cannot get rid of the (6.0K)?

I'm using a 5 day old new MacBook Pro (16-inch, 2019), running MacOS Big Sur 11.0.1, using FireFox 83.0 (64-bit)

it's frustrating and I don't want anything stuck in my cache that might be tracking me, following me around.

After moving to Firefox 78 ESR, get/setCookieString() is no longer working. For example:

       if (cookieService != null) {
           cookieService.setCookieString(cookieUri, null, "CertCheckDone=1;", null);
           myTrace("cookie is " + cookieService.getCookieString(cookieUri, null));
       }
   }

Firefox is running in kiosk mode and this code was executed with a hook in browser.js. Can someone please help me with this? Are there APIs I can use in place of these or are the Webextension APIs the only way to set a cookie now? I have tried playing around and can load a temporary extension but it's removed when restarting the browser and this also has to run in kiosk mode.

The setting "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" is on. Not sure if it is default or if I set it - but it is on on all my devices.

So far I like the idea of deleting cookies. But it is annoying that each time I open a website it asks me which cookies I want to allow.

Is there a way to keep my cookie preferences for sites but delete / forbid all further writing ???

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)

How to Enable 3rd party cookies for Kaltura Media Application in Firefox Nightly 94.0a1

I am unable to enable 3rd party session cookies, which are required for the Kaltura application, in D2L Brightspace for online education courses in Firefox Nightly 94.0a1.

I have tried Kaltura application specific, and my educational institution specific troubleshooting with no change. I have tried changing settings in Firefox Nightly's Privacy and Security Enhanced Tracking Protections and by Managing Exceptions in Cookies and Site Data with no changes.

On the webpage of my course material there is a message that reads: "It seems your browser is blocking 3rd party session cookies which are required for the Kaltura application. To resolve this issue, please update your settings to allow 3rd party cookies." under Course Tour Video

I have further troubleshot this issue by managing the same exceptions in Google Chrome where the content is working. I have retrieved the relevant content URLs from the Google Chrome browser Kaltura video and cookie info and used them in Firefox Nightly to allow all appropriate exceptions with no changes.

After all troubleshooting, I have took the step of clearing Cookies, Site Data, History and restarting Firefox Nightly with no changes on the course page and met with the same error message.

How can I resolve this, because I would like to use Firefox Nightly as my preferred browser for my course work?

Hi there,

I've been trying without much luck to find out when or in what Firefox version, the config setting network.cookie.sameSite.schemeful will be set to 'true' by default?

Can anyone point me in the direction of where this information is or let me know the answer if they already know it?

And I'll apologise in advance if this is in an obvious spot that I've just stupidly missed.

Thanks! Simon

I may have to stop using Firefox if I can't resolve this problem

After a few weeks certain Ebay pages start to not display correctly - writing goes small, moves to the left, big black arrows appear, other pages are alright

I know if I clear 'all cookies' it will solve the problem - but then I have to reload passwords etc on all the sites I visit

I've tried

  • switching of tracking protection on the ebay page
  • selecting and deleteing all Ebay cookies under 'managed data'

but neither solve the problem

The only solution I know to work is to clear all cookies - but I really can't be doing this every couple of weeks
