Does any way exist to delete private browsing cookies (without restarting)?

Very often I need to delete cookies from web sites so the sites won't remember me. The cookies in private tabs never show up in "Privacy & Security / Cookies and Site Data" (so I can't delete them from there), and they don't go away when I close the tabs or windows. It seems that I can only get rid of them by shutting down Firefox - a horrible solution when I have many other tabs and windows open.

I can't believe that no way exists to delete cookies (and local storage) in private windows and tabs. Does anyone know some way to do that?

I am developing a webrtc site and I have four (4) peer connection objects. The first peer object successfully connects to the first client. When the second client attempts to connect, firefox crashes on this call:

peer.setRemoteDescription(rmd);

The same call succeeds without problems on chrome and four (4) separate clients can connect on chrome.

I have submitted a crash report and below is thr crash ID:

bp-829d5bad-23a4-40aa-82aa-2a8910200916

At this point I think this is a firefox issue.

The Guardian website is my start page. Today when I open it up I notice that the scroll bar disappears immediately when the page is loaded. The arrow keys don't work, or the mouse wheel.

Within the last 2 days I have tried to access accounts that respond with something like enter the response code. Note-the firefox forum creation worked. The accounts were in Computershare.com and amazon.com. Both want to confirm (somehow) that the emailed code could be entered 'somewhere' on the screen, but nothing was shown that would accept an entry.

Just to confirm, I also tried Chrome and Opera and same thing. I even did it on my other Linux laptop with the same results. I don't do MS and even told Computershare that and they kept telling me to try a different browser to no avail.

Intermittent tab crashes when opening a new tab and auto-disabling of extensions as a result

I'm not very tech-savvy and not a native English speaker, so please bear with me :)

Now to my problem:

Recently my tabs started crashing occaisionaly. The tab crashes seem to only appear when it's a new tab while tabs that were already open remain stable and don't crash. However if a new tab crashes, it disables my extensions automatically for all tabs, i.e. those tabs that were already open and perfectly functioning and any new tab that I open after the crash. When I say "disable", I don't mean that the toggle in the extension settings is moved to "disabled", it's more like the extensions just stop working despite being set to "enabled".

When reloading the tabs the extensions keep not working. Closing the browser and re-opening it solves the problem but only until I run into another crashing new tab.

I've checked about:crashes but there are no crash reports. When the "Gah! Your Tab Just Crashed" screen appears, there's no option to send a report, I can only close the tab or restore it. I also can't seem to find a pattern in the crashes other than them happening when opening a new tab. It doesn't look like the number of open tabs has an influence on the crashes. Not every new tab crashes.

Sometimes no scolling in active Firefox window

Hello,

I'm using the Logitech M705 mouse with Logitech Options Driver v.8.20.329 under Windows 10 Home 2004 (19041.450) and I have the problem that, from time to time, in the Firefox (always up to date) window the scroll wheel doesn't work as long as the window is active. If I activate another window and move the mouse only over the Firefox window, I can scroll there. As soon as I click into the Firefox window (and activate it), the scrolling wheel doesn't work anymore. Sometimes just opening and closing Logitech Options solved the problem, sometimes it helped to stop all Logitech tasks, but most of the time I had to restart the computer.

I've tried different versions of Logitech Options as well as of Logitech SetPoint, if they could be installed. But the problem kept occurring. (I'm back tothe last Logitech Options.)

Since the problem doesn't affect any other application, Logitech support says, that it must be a Firefox problem.

I would appreciate help that can permanently disable the problem. Because it is very annoying when it occurs.

I can't intentionally cause the problem. But let me know, if there's a way to provide some kind of log file.

Thanks a lot!

With kind regards Michael.

Hello,

If I open Youtube/Amazon/Reddit, basically any site and go to type in the search bar, the entire tab lags out. I can still move between tabs, but I cant interact with the tab that I typed in, and it will eventually catch up with the letter I typed.

This started yesterday. I tried working in safe mode, resetting firefox to default settings, and reinstalling entirely.

Any ideas?

Hi,

Problem as described in the title. I've read some similar questions and answers, but nothing ever helped.

I already tried the following steps (none of them helped): - Checking for updates - Toggling DRM on/off - Uninstall Firefox completely (delete profiles, too and so on) - Changing some DRM or Plugin related config in about:config like media.peerconnection.video.h264 (and of course reverting it after that) - Looking for XHR requests when toggling DRM on/off or visting a site with DRM content. I couldn't figure out what I'm actually looking for, though... - Switching off Firewall/Antivirus or the TLS filtering (Eset) for a moment - Looking for suspicious requests in some router protocols or dashboards or whatever

Thanks in advance!

SO, I had 2 windows and 11,678 tabs open. (I guess I hoard). Anyways, FF slow response times caused me to do a FILE/EXIT. (I've noticed after restart, my response times go back to normal).

While doing the FILE/EXIT, FF crashed. I was surprised by that. In the popup I selected RESTART. But, that crashed again. On the next popup dialogue box I selected QUIT. Then I opened FF again (after verifying all the processes in TASK MANGER had ended. That crashed. I again selected RESTART in the popup. Crashed again. Then selected QUIT. I clicked on FF to start, and this time the SAFEMODE popup appeared. I selected SAFEMODE - but that attempt crashed also. On the next popup I tried RESTART - and another crash. Finally, I tried SAFEMODE again, and FF is now running in safemode. I did notice it had 1 less tab - 11,677 now.

So, I read that if FF crashes during a SAFEMODE startup - it's likely not an extension, theme, or hardware acceleration issue.

So, I am in SAFEMODE right now. I don't know what to look for at this point. Can someone help me? Can anyone read the crash reports to see what my issue might be? Or give me other advice before trying to EXIT safemode and start FF again in normal mode?

The last several submitted FF crashes from today are below:

This happens only in Mozilla Firefox, not in Chrome or Edge, or any other apps that I use. Therefore neither I nor Microsoft Tech Support thinks that this is a Microsoft or Microsoft Surface issue.
