I've noticed that every time Firefox is shut down in an unexpected way (for example if Firefox crashes, if there is a power failure or something else), all my cookies appear to be removed. When I open Firefox the next time, my tabs are restored, but no cookies seem to have been remembered. There is no problem at all when I close Firefox normally.

What could the cause of this problem be? Is there a way of solving it?

Firefox 20's built-in cookie viewer has a window of a limited (small) and unadjustable size. This is not convenient for browsing countless cookies (it's actually not practical). Is there a way to view the list in a window of adjustable size? I would like to maximize the viewing window.

Hello,

If i open the webpage www.kpnvandaag.nl I get the question to accept the cookies for this page. So I press the accept button. I have two pages extra included on this page. 1. nu.nl and 2. webwereld. Both extra pages shows the button accept cookies. But whatever I do I press the button etc. and set the options in the menu extra the content of these pages are not displayed. Only the button ACCEPT cookies.

This problem occurs after the upgrade to version 21.

Who could help me out?

Kind regards,

Richard Meijn

Some cookies won't delete. one is sweetim.com which is malware, and seems to import or prevent the deletion of other malware cookies.

Sweetim.com and ones from mozilla and yahoo won't delete even when I try to delete "all" cookies. When I use the delete cookies option all except sweetim.com seem to have been deleted, but they reappear after firefox restarts. How can I delete them, or at least the sweetim.com.? Sweet.im seems to have come in when I unknowingly downloaded sweetpacks hijacker. I looked in about:config and there is a lot of sweetim stuff, but no way to delete them. I have turned off allowing third party cookies, before I did that, a bunch of unwanted cookies reapeared when firefor restarted. This subject is on the internet, but the suppossed answer just directs to unhelpful websites..

Yahoo mail login says Firefox won't accept cookies but my option is too accept cookies - so what's wrong?

My wife and I can't log into our Yahoo e-mail accounts (or, I guess, our Yahoo account). Whenever we try, we get the message: "The browser you're using refuses to sign in (cookies rejected)".

However, my cookies setting in Firefox is: 1) accept cookies 2) accept third-party cookies 3) keep cookies until they expire.

A few days ago I did change the cookie settings to 1) accept cookies from sites 2) do not accept cookies from sites 3) ask me every time. I also deleted a lot of cookies I didn't recognize or didn't want. I did this because I was (and still am) having trouble with a re-direction virus.

So if anyone has any suggestions as to what needs to be done to make Yahoo e-mail accessible again I would very much appreciate their advice.

I thank everyone for their advice in advance.

Thanks a million.
