Firefox suddenly stopped working with Mac OS 10.6.8- keeps blocking even Safari- will jot download , open pdf file downloads-- wasted a lot of time of several University experts- we can't locate work out why- x3 quit everything, download, reinstalled twice, machine switch on/off- something seriously wrong and wasting alot of time. It had been working faultless for years- recently iMAC 1TB disc was changed by Apple under their programme of exchange for 'free'- it has not worked since!!!! Many thanks

With firefox 17.0 Norton 360 does not pick up tracking cookies that were picked up with firefox 16.0.2. Uninstalled 17.0 and and reinstalled 16.0.2 - tracking cookies are picked up - updated to 17.0 and again no tracking cookies. I did not see anything in release note that would seem to reflect this situation. asked this question at 08:57 PST 11/29/2012 and the reply stated that Norton 360 should still be able to remove tracking cookies. WELL IT DOES NOT - WHAT HAS CHANGED FROM 16.0.2 TO 17.0 THAT WOULD CAUSE THIS. IS THIS A NEW BUG? The first reply did not answer my question however it was marked as "solved". I have rolled back to 16.0.2 and updated to 17.0 twice and the same thing has happened both times.

Thanks for your time =)

Although, the cookie exceptions for 17.0.1 is now working as in 16.0.2, I would like to put a copy of this file somewhere safe so if Foxfire updates and I loose the cookie exceptions, I don't have to re-create a new cookie exception list. I've looked in several places; user, me, apdata, and can't identify which file changes; Vista makes the search for the changed file (when I close 17.0.1) a little difficult.

So after this new stupid youtube update, it for whatever reason logged me out of my gmail and my youtube accounts, even though i have it set to always have me logged in. when i type in the correct e-mail and password, it redirects me to a page that says "Your browser's cookie functionality is turned off. Please turn it on." So, i came here for help to see if there was a problem, and there was (yay google) and i followed the steps to every solution that i could find. Unfortunately, none of them worked in the slightest, and im stuck out from my e-mail. i can access my youtube and gmail perfectly fine at school, but when i come home it seems to. yes, i already opened up the firefox > options > privacy and did all of that. i deleted all my cookies, enabled 3rd party cookies and disabled it multiple times to see if it would fix anything. sadly to no avail. Now that none of that worked, i come here asking for help one last time :( if anyone has a solution to this, it would be greatly appreciated. preferably something that hasnt been repeated in other posts about this, because ive probably already read it :\

Everything was working fine under Win8Pro Release Preview and FF (17?)...

Did full Win7Pro SP1 x64 install.

Installed FF 18.0.1, no add-ons; all defaults except turned on "do not track" and changed cookie handling as described:

Logging in to my Hotmail/Outlook.com account (MS upgraded me to Outlook.com in the middle of my troubleshooting) I can access my Hotmail People (Contacts) without difficulty.

I change FF Options -> Privacy -> "Keep cookies until" from "they expire" to "ask every time."

When I go to "Hotmail People", I click on "Allow" for every instance I'm asked to set or modify a cookie.

The content of the "People" page (the contacts themselves) never loads. I just get the "please wait" circling-dots.

I return to the Hotmail "Mail" page (which still works fine, except when addressing a message).

I change FF Options -> Privacy -> "Keep cookies until" from "ask every time" to "they expire."

When I go (back) to Hotmail People, the contacts load fine.

Shouldn't the two scenarios be the same? I prefer to manually handle cookie handling, so this feature is important to me.

Thanks!

PS: With the exception of addressing in Mail; Mail, Calendar and SkyDrive all seem to work fine regardless of which cookie setting is used.

I pretty much know how to configure Firefox to "accept" or "reject" cookies. Am also aware that one can address the issue of 3rd party cookies.

I am not sure, however, if it is possible to have Firefox reject all First-Party cookies that are not "session" cookies.

In other words I don't want to accept any Third Party Cookies, and I don't want to accept any First Party cookies--unless they are "Session Only".

Can this be done?

Am using Firefox 18.0.1 and Windows 7

I read the first suggested article before posting this question, but it wasn't specific enough so I was forced to comment, "This article fails to specify use of the backed up file in the event of a system/HDD reformat." The article reveals that the profile folder name must match (match WHAT in this scenario?), but does not reveal if any of the files within the profile have that specific identification embedded in them [which might result in logical error or error messages, and failure to accomplish desired goal]. It also does not say if all I want to do is back up the cookies, whether or not will backing up cookies.sqlite and placing it in the new default profile after the system reinstallation/hard drive reformat work.

Let me get more general in the event I'm not communicating what I wish to: I don't want to use a confusing, perhaps badly-written Firefox add-on to do this. I have a few secure sites I visit that give me a really hard time when I update or reformat, like my bank and NetFlix. Both parties CLAIM that I am "attempting to access your account from a different computer," but their security protocol writers are MORONS and liars, because it is NOT a different computer; instead of storing the STATIC MAC address of my computer, which DOES identify the specific computer attempting access, they store a number of different bits of data which are VOLATILE and DYNAMIC [in cookies], and I have to go through this bullcrap of accessing my email account and entering in a verifying one-time-use code to get to my own [epithet for solid waste matter]. So, will I be able to do what I want just by manually backing up cookies.sqlite and placing it in the appropriate directory when needed? It should be a very simple matter for these idiot security experts to query systems for the MAC addresses or to get users to supply it manually (it's easy to find), but NO! That would make SENSE, be EASY, and MORE EFFECTIVELY MANAGE THE SECURE NETWORKS. My idiot bank does not even allow the use of special characters necessary for the creation of sophisticated passwords [that would take over a quintillion years to hack via a Brute Force attack].

This is not the ff remember passwords. It is the website provided login with the remember me checkbox. It has worked in the past (pre win8 and earlier versions of ff....definitely not since win8, but cannot tie directly to ff18) except when I ran ccleaner which would somehow remove the 'cookie".

I have played with all the FF options I can relate to the problem without success.

The FF remember me works, but I have to type in the user name before it will enter the password.

I keep getting informed by Google+ that I need to enable cookies to log in, but I HAVE cookies enabled in all browsers. I checked my Firefox folder, but could not find a profile folder anywhere to check if cookies.sqlt was corrupted. HOW MANY TIMES DO I HAVE TO RESET FIREFOX TO ITS DEFAULT SETTINGS AND AFFIRM THAT COOKIES ARE ENABLED BEFORE GOOGLE WILL ACCEPT THIS???? This problem just started today, and has never been an issue before, but it is IMPOSSIBLE to contact Google about any form of technical support, and the few methods available require you to log into your account!!
