Any way for more granular cookie deletion?

With FF91, it seems I can only delete cookies for an entire domain. I occasionally have an issue with forums.xfinity.com where it won't load. Deleting the cookies for forums.xfinity.com would fix it. Now, with FF91, I have to delete ALL xfinity.com cookies! It seems as if there should be a way to open up the 'container' to see the sub-domains, and then you could further open that up if needed to delete an individual cookie.

Hello.

I would like to know if there is documentation on how does Firefox "SSB" (or "PWA") interact with containers (and the Multi-Account Containers), please.

In simpler words: is there a way to have different SSBs for a single website using different accounts in each of them? (e.g., two different SSB "Gmails" or "Office 365" etc?)

And do SSB own their specific containers or can we link an SSB to an existing container used in the 'general' Firefox?

Thanks!

single out certain Google cookies to accept

Firefox removes all cookies when I shut it down; that is the option I have chosen. I know I can opt out of this by allowing cookies for certain websites.

I don't want to allow Google/Youtube cookies in this way: I don't want Google to come back the next time and continue to build their cookie cache; I want them to start with a "Google cookie free" browser. 

But.....

This means I have to set my Google cookie settings every time I start my browser and visit any of the Google sites. This annoys me a lot.

Is it possible to single out certain cookies (e.g. the one with the Google cookie settings) that I want to keep, while I remove all the other Google cookies on shut down?

(Before you suggest: not using Google/Youtube is not an option).

Thanx,


Thom

Firefox always removing cookies, regardless of settings

Firefox always deletes cookies for some websites when it's restarted. While working in non-private mode I checked, that the setting for removing the cookies on closing is set to off. Then I tried adding some websites to the exception list for this setting, no luck. I made sure that cookies on those websites are persistent, not session only, and they are working in other browsers. I tried disabling the plugins, but it didn't help either. It's somewhat annoying, because now I have to adjust cookie preferences every time I visit my favourite websites. I use "standard" protection settings.

Firefox automatically makes a backup of the cookies file and does a fresh launch.

Every time I close firefox the cookies file in my profile folder "cookies.sqlite" makes a backup of itself "cookies.sqlite.bak" so when I open firefox again I start out fresh unless I change name of the file back to what it supposed to be then I could launch firefox back with the old cookies with no visible issues.

So, how do I make it so the firefox doesn't automatically make a backup of my old cookies and replace it a new file?

Firefox keeps logging me out of google account every 2-3 days

I have already checked the cookies are enabled and set to never be deleted. Other websites I use stay signed in, this only happens for google/youtube once every few days. I never had this problem in other browsers aswell so I doubt it's an account problem. I am using a couple of extensions, adguard and ublock origin, but the issue was still there when I disabled them.

I am having problems clearing Facebook cookies and data storage. I have cleared the cache numerous times and always FB is at the top of the list with 0 cookies but 17,179,869,184GB Data Storage. I delete that as well and it comes back. I have run my Smartscan and optimized. This showed up recently and it makes Firefox very, very slow. What are some other options to try

Google Drive downloads "don't redirect correctly" / Download failure

Hello. I've been having issues with downloading any type of file from Google Drive on Firefox. The issues I'm experiencing directly match what is mentioned in [support article] but this user uses Windows. 'I'm getting this problem on Arch Linux instead. Outside of Linux, I do not experience any issues with downloads from Google Drive.

So far, I've tried all the methods; From downloading from a private window, to disabling cookies -- I've even completely disabled any protection settings and add-ons such as uBlock Origin/DDG, but also re-installing Firefox. In the latter it kept my data, so it might not have been a fresh re-install.

What could be the cause of this problem? This issue does not seem to happen on other browsers. While I can use that as a workaround, I'd like to know the cause to prevent it from happening in the future.

Thanks!
