I keep getting this when I go to Facebook page (only started a week or so ago).


The page isn't redirecting properly

An error occurred during a connection to www.facebook.com.

This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.


I`ve tried to do myself but not working any help anyone, please

Thank you

I have installed several Cookie Adds, Ghostery, Addblock Plus, FVD Speed Dial, Cookie Quick Manager, I don't care about cookies, Cookiebro, Cookie Editor, on several Notebooks Win10 and Win7. But on my newest Win10 Notebook i got an permanent Cookie entry every time i start Firefox new.

I have also blacklisted these Domain also in the FF Settings, but this entry persists every time i start Firefox.

It says "fakedomain.com" "testSameSite:someValue" (It will show in Cookie Quick Manager) just in one pc.

I use Firefox version 83.0, 64 Bit

If I type vodafone in Google search in firefox it shows for only half a second the link to the vodafone website but than it goes 3 or 4 places down and I only get links to other vodafone suppliers. If I type stock Tesla before I got the grafic of Tesla stock and now I have to click to financial to show that because the first 3 links are commercial stock sellers.

This is only a recent development but very very annoing.

I does not happen in Google Chrome.

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 folks,

I'm getting very annoyed with the paranoia of corporate America and I my machines are all heavily customized. and I've managed to cut off all ties with corporate people because they are very big time wasters because most of their customers are very uninformed. but that's OK. I just happen to be a rare case. I posted this question elsewhere and asked some other very competent people about this. It is here:

[https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/foru.../location-of-firefox-saved-form-data/]

however, the addressed a very similar issue. really the point of this effort by me is to save anything and everything that BANKS put on my machines so i don't have to talk to CSR's when they change their security and annoy customers with changing auth and auth. I just ran into it again with HSBC 10 minutes ago and wasted 20 minutes doing redundant tasks with a CSR to unlock the account. can you guys tell me what is in each one of the files listed in the image I've attached? I can do it myself with github tools, but I'd rather save time and get it from the pros here, assuming someone here knows. I just need summaries. Not specifics. I can figure it out from there. If someone could give a hint if this doesn't look like a suspicious post, that would be nice.

thanks.

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.

Firefox 17 is not retaining cookie setting for websites. Besides removing all existing exceptions I had, it will no longer retain exceptions for cookies. I have the basic cookie setting as unchecked for accepting cookies (that is the default is not to accept cookies), but when I add an exception, it does not retain it when I close my browser. This is very serious stuff. I will have to move from my beloved Firefox to something that *does* work. I can't believe you haven't been flooded with complaints. Or maybe you have.

FF17: New cookies don't get stored, existing cookies are not recognized by websites

Since upgrading to FF17 I get requests for new cookies each and every day - even for websites that I'm surfing on since years, and for which the cookie settings clearly state to accept them automatically (if only session based). Accordingly, these sites have cookies stored in my profile, but FF seems to be no longer able to pick those up.

To me this looks like a bug in the program, as nothing else has changed between running (happily) on FF16 and upgrading to FF17.

Youtube will play on the small player, even load 1080P on the small player, and full screen works fine, but refuses to resize to the large player that takes up about half the screen. It worked just fine until I had to reinstall Firefox due to some other bug that is now fixed.

Previous versions of FF allowed you to select individual cookies that wouldn't be deleted when FF closed. This meant you wouldn't have to log in to your favorite sites each time you opened FF; - you'd already be logged in. Later versions of FF no longer have this functionality. However, IE and Safari both do have this functionality. For example, I used to be able to keep my google cookies and browse straight into google reader after the browser opened. Now I always have to login. Does anyone know if the functionality will be restored to FF? The current lack of versatile cookie settings is a hindrance to efficiency.

(PS. Cor-el, please don't answer as you're wrong on this. The key messages are that FF used to have this functionality and plenty of other users agree, and IE and Safari still have it so go and check it yourself, and it has nothing to do with Clear Recent History.) Thanks all. :)

– I have the most recent version of Firefox. – I have my settings in Preferences -> Privacy on "Keep third party cookies until I close Firefox". – I've checked "Clear history when Firefox closes" and have ticked every single box under settings (except saved passwords). – But still, Cookies do not get deleted when I close Firefox – there are hundreds of cookies every time I open it. – If I go to Tools -> Clear recent history, choose "everything" and tick every single box, history etc. get deleted but the cookies remain. – If I go to Preferences -> Privacy and click "Show Cookies" and then click "Remove all cookies" twice, the cookies disappear, but they're back just seconds later. – I've even tried going to Preferences, clicking on Exceptions and manually adding some of the websites that showed up under "show cookies" and blocking them and then deleting the cookies, but still they re-appeared within seconds, and the exceptions were blank again. – I've checked all your support pages about this topic. – I've seen this https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/740598?esab=a&as=aaq and tried it and it didn't help. – I've seen this https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/936308?esab=a&as=aaq and this https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/868910?esab=a&as=aaq, and yes I do use "Do Not Track Plus" and some of the Cookies seem to be Opt-Out-Cookies but most are not.

Please help me. I used to be a big fan of Firefox but this is getting really scary.

With firefox 17.0 Norton 360 does not pick up tracking cookies that were picked up with firefox 16.0.2. Uninstalled 17.0 and and reinstalled 16.0.2 - tracking cookies are picked up - updated to 17.0 and again no tracking cookies. I did not see anything in release note that would seem to reflect this situation. asked this question at 08:57 PST 11/29/2012 and the reply stated that Norton 360 should still be able to remove tracking cookies. WELL IT DOES NOT - WHAT HAS CHANGED FROM 16.0.2 TO 17.0 THAT WOULD CAUSE THIS. IS THIS A NEW BUG? The first reply did not answer my question however it was marked as "solved". I have rolled back to 16.0.2 and updated to 17.0 twice and the same thing has happened both times.

Every time I enable cookies (set it to custom enable) and I press ok, it didnt change. I go back into options and the information didnt change. I thought that the plugins had something to do with this so I tried browsing in the same site with all of the plugins disabled but that didnt work. Every time I press ok to change the cookies information, it just goes back to default whenever i go back into the options menu.
