I want to be able to close Firefox and have all cookies and site data removed - but I want to keep my history.

Checking the box to do just this in 'Privacy & Security' will delete cookies when I close Firefox - but all the site data remains. Under 'History' I have 'use custom settings' enabled, as well as 'remember browsing and download history'. I've tried various permutations of this, but can't get it to do what Firefox says it will.

Being able to do this is one of the main reason I want to use Firefox, but it doesn't seem to work. I have to manually delete both cookies and site data.

Any suggestions to try to delete cookies and site data when Firefox closes, but remember history?

Hello,

I noticed that a setting on the about:config page was removed: the "security.csp.enable" setting. I was using this setting to disable CSP to be able to load local JS scripts on some non-locally hosted sites, for debugging and development, work related purposes.

Was this setting really removed? Is there a way to disable CSP on Firefox on the latest version?

Thanks! Gabriel.

For most extensions, there is an option to enable them in private windows; for both Multi-Account Containers and Temporary Containers, however, they cannot be used in private tabs with no option to allow them to. Is there any reason for this, and any way I can bypass the missing toggle?

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.

FredMcD you asked if I could post a link to the Map . . this is the link to the page that has the map. Normally it would simply pop up as Elk Grove Village as that is the website this is in, but it does not and I can not enter the name of the city in the box provided. The map is at the bottom of this page.

Grammarly.com is not letting me log in because the continue bar keeps loading. It won't let me enter my email and press enter, nor is autofill working. I've contacted them, but the solutions they're telling me to do have had no success. I've already disabled other extensions to see if that was the problem, but it wasn't. I cleared cache and cookies, and I've also removed the autofill option as well. My firefox is up to date.
