Firefox logging me out of all sites when I "delete history"

Hello,

this problem started happening around 3 or 4 days ago.

Usually, at the end of the day or before I close Firefox, I "delete browsing history" BUT only the "today" history. I know it's a weird habit (lol), but at least it logs me out of all recent browsing while keeping my sessions with older websites active (typically these older websites include stuff that I use frequently like Outlook, Google/Youtube, Twitter & other social media, Spotify, and a few other sites).

The other reason I do this is that I like my "recent history" to be ordered the way I like, so I can use it kind of like a "bookmark list".

The problem: Since about 4 days ago, each time I "delete history", ALL my accounts are signed out. Note that I don't have the option to delete cookies upon closing checked, and whenever I close Firefox without deleting history the sessions appear to be active.

I think 3 or 4 days ago there was a Firefox update? I remember at the time I was shown the extra tab with the release notes, but I didn't pay much attention. However when I noticed the issue, which was the day after, I assumed it was a new feature of the update that caused all these websites not to recognise my browser and thus ask me to log in again.

So just before going to bed, I tried 1) clearing my history for the day as I usually do, except 2) instead of closing directly after, I would go to the sites I want to remain logged in (in this case I just did Outlook, Youtube, Twitter, Facebook, Tiktok and Spotify), log into my accounts, and then close the browser.

So the following day, it worked "as usual"... almost... that is because when I deleted my history of the day, it logged me out of everything again. But in the "recent history" list, it showed the updated list (with the websites I re-logged into the day before).

So I can't guess what is happening, other that something is messing with my cookies each time I delete history. I even went to check manually to see if I still had the session cookies stored in Firefox and it appears to be the case.

Yesterday I also tried logging into a Google, waiting a few hours, and only deleting the history of the past hour, but the same thing happens, I instantly get logged out.

Additional info: when I "delete history" I only check the first five options (those under history) and not the lower two (under data).

Thanks for your help, and sorry for my English !

I've been watching and following along with a Unreal Engine 4 Course on Youtube for some time now (mentioning in case the resource usage has something to do with it), and in the past couple days I've noticed a pretty serious and annoying bug. When I pause the video, tab (Cmd + Tab on MacOS) into Unreal Engine, do some things, then tab back and resume the video, it will play for one frame and then stop and buffer, but the audio will continue playing. The only way to get the video to resume is to skip forward/backward in the video (either with the arrow keys or the progress bar). I've also tried Troubleshooting/Safe mode and the issue still persits.

Expected: Firefox displaying all known Unicode characters.

Result: Many characters missing.

Failure page as an example: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Religious_and_political_symbols_in_Unicode

Description: I tried going through a Unicode list Unicode list and the extensive set of characters displayed correctly. However, when reaching further into character sets as shown in the failure page page, many are missing which are not new.

  • "Repair encoding. . ." button was not active.
  • An encoding switch extension was not able to resolve the issue.
  • Troubleshooting mode did not show changes.
  • Switched fronts available such as Noto Sans and Roboto Sans without success. Possibly a font failure?

media like .gif files and .mp4 files are used very frequently in the Discord servers I'm in and for some reason whenever those specific file types are used won't load/function. I noticed that while the DRM icon was present in the discord tab, that those two file types worked just fine; but I have no clue how to set it to always turn on for specific sites.

Hello guys,

I just got a new M2 SSD and I just decided to reinstall Windows and everything on it. However, when I installed Firefox I started getting this exact error message on all twitch streams: "Your browser encountered an error while decoding the video. (Error #3000):. Keep in mind I have tried most if not every "fix" I've found. I've disabled the hardware acceleration, cleared cookies and cache, I've disabled the extensions, I've tried Incognito mode, I do not have a third-party anti-virus and I do not have a VPN. This works on all other browsers and it used to work on Firefox before I wiped my PC, so that I can install Windows again. I really do not want to use a different browser, I love everything about Firefox right now.

Any suggestions will do, thank you very much.

Hi,

I use Firefox daily, but since the last update I'm unable to make card payments on websites and I'm having to use Chrome as a backup. Up until the update everything was fine and there were no issues making payments on the Royal Mail and Asda websites. When I click the pay button on these sites, the payment window does not open up.

I've tried disabling all addons/extensions to no avail.

Since upgrading to Monterey, Google search pages show almost no text in Firefox. Google searches in Safari and Google Chrome are completely fine. Only Firefox is showing the problem. The blank text includes dropdown menus too - all options inside them are blank. Currently on Firefox v107.0, but the same problem happens with older versions.

If I go into Troubleshoot mode, the Google searches are working fine. I have refreshed Firefox, Cleared the startup cache. But the problem persists. I uninstalled Firefox from the machine, restarted the computer. Did a fresh download and install, haven't signed in so there are no addons/extensions to cause problems.

This is happening on both an Intel Mac and an M1 Mac running Mac OS 12.6 Monterey.

I attach one screenshot showing the same page with and without troubleshoot mode on. The second screenshot shows another page of results including what looks like weirdly encoded characters.

I've followed all the suggestions in the support page but nothing has helped. I'd really appreciate any advice on further troubleshooting. Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi all, is expired cookies management changed lately? Authentication doesn't work anymore in following use case. Question is all about FF for windows, while usually I'm on FF Android, Edge and Chrome for Windows and all these browsers are working correctly.

My working web app (static blazor wasm standalone) is interactively authenticating in Azure AD B2C using Microsoft.Authentication.WebAssembly.Msal library (like MSAL.js), API is an Azure Function protected through AAD B2C.

Login request successfully invokes Signin/Signup B2C flow with popup to myb2ctenant.b2clogin.com but breaks navigating to auth protected pages or backend apis.

From DevTools I see that every request to following b2c endpoints sets an expired cookie (expired 10 years before, year is now 2012):

When user clicks login: GET /myb2ctenant.onmicrosoft.com/b2c_1_sinsup/v2.0/.well-known/openid-configuration

Returning from login confirmation: GET /myb2ctenant.onmicrosoft.com/B2C_1_SInSUp/api/CombinedSigninAndSignup/confirmed?rememberMe=false&csrf_token=xxx

for example: Set-Cookie: x-ms-cpim-trans=; domain=myb2ctenant.b2clogin.com; expires=Fri, 14-Sep-2012 12:46:46 GMT; path=/; SameSite=None; secure; HttpOnly

FF registers this warning in console:

Cookie “x-ms-cpim-trans” has been rejected because it is already expired

Following when MSAL execute a request to /myb2ctenant.onmicrosoft.com/b2c_1_sinsup/oauth2/v2.0/authorize?xxxx

Response always contains:

Location: https://blazorapp.xx.web.core.windows.net/authentication/login-callback#error= interaction_required&error_description=AADB2C90077%3a+User+does+not+have+an+existing+session+and+request+prompt+parameter+has+a+value+of+%27None%27.%0d%0a

All other browsers are working... Thanks in advance for any help

You can scroll to the next video fine, but if you continue to scroll to the next after that (3rd consecutive video) you get redirected to the first video you started with.

Firefox not sending original Authorization header when fetch follows a redirect in 112.0

We've noticed that in Firefox 112.0 (maybe in 111.0? haven't tested yet...) when a `fetch` request with an `Authorization` header gets a `302` (or `307`, and probably any other redirect response code) and `redirect` is set to `follow`, the second request is made _without_ an `Authorization` header, which breaks our website.

In 110.0 this isn't an issue, and no warning is logged to tell us it's about to change.

I'm guessing this is a security change - could someone point me at the discussion that led to it being made? My feeling is that if the redirect is to the same origin as the original request sending the same `Authorization` header should be secure enough.

I'm wondering what the right mitigation is; we could follow redirects manually of course, but it's a pain.

On a couple of websites, but in particular Rogers.com, the captcha just never ends. It asks to click on all the bicycles, I click on them one at a time until no more appear, hit verify, it brings up something else. It will do this dozens of times and just never ever end.

Switch over to Edge, does the same. Switched to chrome and it works fine. Has google done something to captcha to deny it working on other browsers?

I have checked to see firefox is up to date and it is. I have disabled all extensions/addons. I have run malware/virus scans. On the Rogers community forums there are all kinds of people having problems but there are no solutions on how to fix. Oddly (or not) the problems are similar...captcha won't work on Edge, Firefox but will work on Chrome.
