I am on Windows 11. I utilize Firefox only. I have always been able to obtain banking statements but now I am getting an error message: "Your session has timed out due to inactivity. To access your online statement please close this window and click the link found in Online Banking to reopen online statement." I contacted the bank and they had me clear cookies but it didn't help. They tried to get me to cookie settings, bit mine steps were not the same as theirs. The had me go to Chrome and their site worked perfectly. I prefer Firefox and would hate to have to make it my primary. Do you know why my banking is not working on Firefox? How can my cookie setting be OK for Chrome but not Firefox?

So I am working on my own website & a couple days ago I got a requested headers too large error. After looking up what that meant, I cleared my cookies & cache but it didn't work. After looking it up more I renamed (added .old) the coolie file in my profile & I thought maybe it worked for a while but then all of a sudden it came back. Now I keep getting the requested headers too large error like every 5 minutes & have to keep clearing cookies & cache every time, which works for 5-15 minutes & then it happens again. Which is more than extremely frustrating when I'm trying to work on my website! And it's only happening on my site.

So how can I fix this for good? Is the cookie file getting corrupted again? If so, how to I prevent that?

REF: FF/v103.0.1

Are various cookie managers needed now that V103.0.1 states on "What's new FireFox..." tab when it installs update and then restarts.

I have cookie addons: I don't care about cookies AND Cookie Quick Manager

Additionally, in Settings via "cookies" search results I have setup: - Enhanced Tracking Protection = Strict - Send "Do NotTrack" = Always - Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed = enabled ...Manage Exceptions = websites I trust and use frequently, data persistency makes life easier...

- Remember browsing and download history = enabled - Remember search and form history = enabled - Clear history when Firefox closes = enabled ...Settings for Clearing History:

  History section: Cookies = enabled, Cache = enabled
  Data section: Offline web site data = enabled

To be honest, I'm out of my depth here. Attempting settings which 'seem' best for me...?

If I want to change whether cookies are enabled/disabled on Firefox, must I sign in to Firefox and then change my settings, or can I just click on the Firefox icon on desktop, open application and change settings from drop-down menu without signing into account?

Having trouble staying signed into accounts, even with cookie whitelists.

Haven't been able to stay signed into online accounts like YouTube and Google accounts when I restart Fifrefox. The reason I am going to the trouble to post about it is because it used to work no issue. It gets me thinking if Google must have changed something in their policies recently to make this so difficult, like it just denies Firefox's anti-tracking features and stuff.

Here's what I already tried doing: First turn off cookie auto delete for a sec, then see if Fifrefox is deleting the cookies I need in settings. Then finally, check to see if enhanced tracking is deleting the cookie (so I disabled it for Youtube and accounts.google.com for the time-being.) Still no luck with staying signed in after all those tweaks.

Last you might be thinking that this may have somethiing to due with Enhanced Tracking Protection (ETP) 2.0 in the recent FIrefox update but the thing is, I started having this issue before the new update. I've scoured the settings in Firefox and am out of ideas. Perhaps somebody who is more familiar with the settings could point me in the right direction?

There is only one last thing to mention: I do use DNS over HTTPS with a custom provider. Is it at all possible this brings complications with it? Maybe I didn't have the right idea about it when I added it.

I have been using the browser Ecosia (you should too), which is essentially a web browser that plants trees as you search. The problem is that it would normally save the amount of trees that I have planted, but because Firefox clears cookies every time I close, it resets every time I close the browser. I know that I could just not delete cookies, but I would really rather not.

When using an internal website I usually get an error when using Firefox:

Bad request Cannot parse token. root cause: Unable to decrypt bytes [ (then a bunch of numbers).

If I clear cookies this then it works for a while. If I use Chrome or Edge it usually works although sometimes I get something similar. The IT chaps insist it's a browser issue(of course). I'd rather not have to keep clearing cookies - any thoughts?

Once every week it seems Firefox forgets im logged in and kicks me out from every site.

I can close Firefox and turn off computer and im still logged in on Youtube on startup, but some time during week it seems to drop the logged in state and i have to redo it on multiple sites.

Im starting to wonder if it has something to do with my Phone visiting Youtube on same account that screws it up. It seems to happen when i disappear from PC for some hours and comes back. In that time ive usually streamed Youtube content on Chromecast.

Ive had this happen meanwhile i was logged in on Youtube with the tab open. Once i refreshed i was logged out. Ive cleared cookies/cache to test if that was the issue but that didnt fix it. Other than that clearing cookies is disabled and has been so at all times.

This problem has been going on for a few months.

Hello.

I configured Firefox so that whenever I close the browser only the Browsing & Download History and Form & Search History to be deleted, so that I don't have to login on every relevant website (facebook, youtube, mail, etc.) It was working fine until a few days (~1 week ago) when it started logging me out of some websites randomly and I basically have to login again. I basically close the computer and the next day I find myself logged out of some websites.

Did this happen to anyone else?
