Hi All,

Several times I've cleared my cache and managed to also delete ALL of my logins. I most certainly do uncheck the box for "Cookies and Site Data", leaving only "Cached Web Content" checked and it still deletes all info. Also whenever I go back in that page, both are (again) checked.

What am I doing wrong?

Is there a way in "about:config" to default this area to "Cached Web Content" only?

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?

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.

I can't find a way to block all the 3rd party cookies by default except for those that I want to. For example, google drive uses some third party cookies to open videos I guess, cause if I block those firefox doesn't reproduce my videos. I would like to remove all the 3rd party cookies except for the sites I want to keep them.. how can I do it?

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

Hi everyone

For a few months after several repairs and installations of Firefox (and even Windows) My cookies are no longer stored in my browser after closing Firefox

I have to authenticate myself on all web pages between all sessions: Google, Outlook ... all web applications without distinctions, even websites that I create myself.

What is intriguing is that this seems to only happen on my personal computer. It works fine from another computer with my account or on my smartphone.

I tried all the options for configuring the storage of cookies without any effect.

I regret not finding a solution, because I will have to abandon Firefox.

If anyone had any idea to find a solution to my problem, I would be very grateful to you

Firefox has just updated to version 84, and has lost all my passwords, and I think cookies too. This is the second time this has happened.

I have had a look in Windows Explorer to see if there is an older file (C:\ProgramData\Mozilla), but nothing there that looks hopeful at all.

I have to ask myself: Should I be using Chrome?

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.
