Currently, I have configured my Privacy & Security settings in which all third-party cookies are blocked. This causes certain websites to break and become nonfunctional.

How do I configure my settings to which all third-party cookies are blocked by default, but for specific websites I choose they are not blocked?

I do not want to change my settings in which cookies are blocked only from websites I have not visited; because there are some websites I frequent that I still wish to block third-party cookies.

Thank you

Office 365 cookie issue

I have configured FF to block all cookies under "Browser Privacy" the custom setting allows "Choose which trackers and scripts to block. and I selected "all cookies". Knowing that all cookies will be blocked I logged into office 365 and allowed manually cookies through "view page info" I then selected "set cookies" to allow expecting full access to office 365 mail, but this did not occur. What happened is I logged into office 365 and could see the icons and my login name but could not read the mail.

Office 365 gave the message "we couldn't sign you in please try again" yet I could see my log in name and the office 365 icons for mail, calendar etc.. just not the actual data. If I allow cookies in Browser privacy (which i take it allows cookies always) it woks.

I bring this up because it seems like something is missing in cookies that is not represented in FF.What is the difference between browser privacy cookies and allowing it through view page permissions? Can anyone offer an explanation?

Third Party Session Cookies

Hello,

I am a college professor at University of New Haven, which uses the Canvas online learning system. Within Canvas, we have access to the Kaltura media content system where we can create, upload, and share videos with our students through the Canvas application.

This has worked fine until recently. Now, whenever I try to access my Kaltura media through Canvas, I get the following error message:

"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." (see attached photo for reference)

I assume there was a routine Firefox update sometime recently that imposed stricter restriction on third-party cookies. But I have followed all the instructions here (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/third-party-cookies-firefox-tracking-protection?redirectslug=disable-third-party-cookies&redirectlocale=en-US), and I am still unable to access Kaltura through Canvas (I get the same error message).

FYI - I am able to access Kaltura through Canvas on Chrome, so I know this is a Firefox-specific issue. But I hate Chrome and want to keep using Firefox!

Is this something you can help me with?

Let me know - thanks!

Cookie selection problem

If I, for example use Google as search engine, it always requires me to accept cookies. Then if I have accepted the cookies and go to one of the found pages, read it and go back to the search, Firefox tries to load the same popup window again, but fails. When I open a new tab and reenter the search phrase, the same window for accepting cookies appears. I think this problems have appeared after the latest update to version 82.0.3; not sure if I have changes some preference. My compter is an old MacBookPro with OS 10.13.6. In previous versions, I have been asked now and then to accept google's privacy rules. The similar problems appears for other sites, for example sanoma.com, where I have chosen to accept only the necessary cookies, not third party, analytics, etc. When I open a link and go back, the same question appears again, but for these sites it does not hang up, as in the google case. I mostly use private browsing window, and have better privacy and similar extensions activated.

I noticed this when I opened - Settings - Privacy & Security then went to Certificates -View Certificates/Certificate Manager - first three tabs have blank fields, on Servers tab, there are entries, none matching in any way what comes up on the Enterprise Policies tab; on Authorities tab I couldn't find any entry that seemed like what was displayed on the Enterprise Policies tab.

ImportEnterpriseRoots seems to be the "organization" that is controlling my browser poking around I found the following;

{

"ImportEnterpriseRoots": {
 "type": "boolean"
},
"Install": {
 "type": "array",
 "items": {
  "type": "string"
 }
}

}

what does it mean that my "browser is being managed by your organization"? what should or can I do? TIA.

The last version of Firefox is making some connections I don't know how to stop. I've modified some of the parameter in "about:config", but there are still HTTP request to the following URLs that I didn't manage to stop:

https://firefox-settings-attachments.cdn.mozilla.net/security-state-staging/intermediates/* https://firefox.settings.services.mozilla.com/v1/buckets/monitor/collections/changes/records

Also, does anyone know if there is a configuration file where I can modify directly all of the parameters I changed in "about:config"?

Thanks!
