Firefox doesn't remember my progress for videos using Vimeo player

I watch videos on dropout.tv which uses the Vimeo SDK as their player for the videos. After switching to Firefox, the video progress has consistently started from where I left off on Chrome. The site doesn't remember where I ended the video when I watch it on Firefox. I assume this has to do with the cookies, but I've manually added "dropout.tv" to the list of exceptions in Firefox settings so that that site is always allowed to store cookies.

Returning briefly to Chrome, the player immediately tracked my progress again, so the issue is definitely related to Firefox somehow.

When I restart my computer, I am logged out of all websites although I did not select settings such as "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed". This only happens with reboots and not on Suspend.

I saw two similar posts but the options look like they changed name since then: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1319622 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1289909

I tried to apply the solutions linked there, to no avail.

This behaviour only happens on my Garuda Linux and not on Pop-os. Thus I am not sure here is the right place to ask this question.

Another strange bug which may be related is the following: if I zoom in a page (say set it at 120 percents) then go to another tab and then come back to the page I zoomed in, the zoom is reset to 100 percents.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Repeated Cookies Pop-up

When I log on to the National Savings website using Firefox ( though not when I log in with Chrome) I get the pop-up requiring me to accept or edit Cookies at every page on this particular website. It even happens when I select LOG OFF. Hence it occurs maybe six or more times whilst I am browsing the website. I complained to NS&I but they report it is not caused by their system. I therefore assume it it something within Firefox which is the problem. Can someone please advise me how to prevent these pop-ups. My operating system is Windows 10.

from preferences page: Your stored cookies, site data, and cache are currently using 17,179,869,184 GB of disk space.

almost all are Facebook storage. I'm feeling a little reluctant to delete all site data. If I clear all cookies and site data will that fix the issue? will the issue re-occur?

Hi, developer question here:

How can I one-click delete all data in all stores for a website? DevTools give me the "Storage" tab, but I have to go through every single store (cookies, local, session, etc) and delete every data entry one-by-one. Chrome eg has a very usefull "celar all data" button in their DevTools.

Thanks!

Hello,

I've set Firefox up to auto delete Cookies and Site Data when I close it. (Settings>Privacy & Security>Cookies and Site Data). I want to stay logged in to some of my accounts though so i added the Sites in question to the exceptions (clicked allow and save changes). The problem is, that only worked for one site so far and the others require a new login anyway. No clue how to fix that (the same solution worked in LibreWolf for some reason).

Thanks for your reply in advance, S

I use Kaltura to record lectures and post them to my course at the U of Utah on Canvas. This semester, Firefox will not allow me to open "my media" where the Kaltura recordings are posted on Canvas. I get the following 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.

I copied the Kaltura web address 670542.kaf.kaltura.com that I can see in Chrome and pasted it into a Chrome browser and it goes to my recordings in Canvas when I use Chrome. The same site doesn't work in Firefox. How do I unblock Kaltura third party sessions? Thank you.
