It is a followup of a previous question and your suggestions did not work. May be I did not explained myself. The issue is that everytime I launch Firefox a "google page" pops up asking me either to accept or to personalize the use of cookies and whatever I choose it is not “memorized” so that the following time I launch firefox it asks again the same question. (I have google as my default search engine and I have a google account). Thanks! Giulio

FF seems to keep forgetting what I call "legitimate" cookies. For example:

  • For websites I use daily without a login, like Accuweather, every few days I get their "Accept our cookies?" messages.
  • For sites that allow an on-going login, I need to re-login frequently. Not daily, but certain not months later.
  • I have a financial site that allows me to set only certain devices may be recognized. Today it said a device I use weekly or so is no longer recognized.

There is an old thread that may be relevant: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1309877

But several issues: That thread is closed, even though this bug is still going. Also it only covers Windows and I could use help with Windows & iOS versions.

Could "Tracking Protection" level come into play? I had it set to Standard but noticed recently it was Strict. I think Firefox changed that, not me, but I can't be 100% positive. Meanwhile I changed it back to Standard but so far the issue remains.

Thank you,

Joe

Firefox 91.0.2 not retaining cookies/site data despite still being there

I have the latest Firefox update, and noticed that if I delete one site's cookie, then the cookies for other sites, my logins, and site data just disappear when I go onto the site despite it still being in the data when I check Settings.

One example is if I delete Twitter's cookies and then go to Discord, I'm somehow logged out of Discord, and some other sites loose my settings despite the fact that they are still there in the data untouched.

I have tried adding these sites to the Exceptions list, but the same thing still happens. I am not in Private Browsing Mode (nor have I ever used it), and I don't have Firefox set to delete cookies/site data when closed.

This started happening sometime after I updated to 91.0.2. I'm not sure if the update broke something or there's some other issue going on.

Logging onto Facebbok

A few Firefox versions ago now when I opened Facebook it showed my saved e-mail address to login, and not my password which I wanted NOT saved and still do not want it saved. But now each time I log out of Firefox (and Facebook) and later go into them again it still requires entry of the e-mail address (doesn't "remember" it) - I'm an elderly user and not into the depths of the Firefox settings, but guess if someone could walk me through exactly step by step what I need to do I would be so grateful. I guess it is something to do with "cache" settings??

Firefox automatically makes a backup of the cookies file and does a fresh launch.

Every time I close firefox the cookies file in my profile folder "cookies.sqlite" makes a backup of itself "cookies.sqlite.bak" so when I open firefox again I start out fresh unless I change name of the file back to what it supposed to be then I could launch firefox back with the old cookies with no visible issues.

So, how do I make it so the firefox doesn't automatically make a backup of my old cookies and replace it a new file?

Hi there, I have a strange behavior in firefox: when navigating to Yeastar support website (https://support.yeastar.com/hc/en-us) and trying to sign in, i receive the following message: "To continue signing in using Firefox, allow cookies to be stored on this device. You might see this screen more than once. " If I put my username and passwords, I am unable to press the "Sign in" button. If I do the same from an incognito session, the message doesn't appear and I am able to log in through the "Sign in" button (see attached screenshot).

I tried to read many articles about allowing cookies from the firefox documentation but none has solved my problem. I'm running Firefox version 91.0 from a VDI (Citrix Desktop) and I have no admin privileges. Is there anything I can set in order to resolve this problem?

Getting Cookies required to use Firefox To continue signing in using Firefox, allow cookies to be stored on this device. You might see this screen more than once.

message after the upgrade and it's very frustrating that mozilla push these updates without testing them properly. What I did -Tried adding an exception with allow for Cookies -Changed Standard mode to Custom - Tried with private browsing - Cleared cache - Switched off Tracking and protection for this website as well as opencart.zendesk.com

Nothing helped. On chrome it works. How to fix this ?

My wife lost her driver's license. In Nevada you can order a replacement online. You need data from the license to get a new one. If I had the license to get the data, I wouldn't need a replacement. I know the data I need is in the site data in Firefox. How can I find it? I see all sorts of ways to clear the data, but no way to view it.

Firefox always deletes cookies for some websites when it's restarted. While working in non-private mode I checked, that the setting for removing the cookies on closing is set to off. Then I tried adding some websites to the exception list for this setting, no luck. I made sure that cookies on those websites are persistent, not session only, and they are working in other browsers. I tried disabling the plugins, but it didn't help either. It's somewhat annoying, because now I have to adjust cookie preferences every time I visit my favourite websites. I use "standard" protection settings.
