Hi, I love my recommended by pocket on my new tab or when firefox opens. Yesterday Firefox asked me if I'd like to try a new setting disabling all cookies, I did opt in. After that my recommended by pocket disappeared. I opted out of disabling all cookies, but it hasn't reappeared. I checked about:config and the setting for recommendations is true. Please help!

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...?

Best to all Tim

Firefox has just updated to version 84, and has lost all my passwords, and I think cookies too. This is the second time this has happened.

I have had a look in Windows Explorer to see if there is an older file (C:\ProgramData\Mozilla), but nothing there that looks hopeful at all.

I have to ask myself: Should I be using Chrome?

Good day,

Everytime, since a few weeks, when I start a new session I have to accept cookies again with many websites. e.g. Google or De Telegraaf. Normally with the Telegraaf I have to log in just once, but since a few weeks I have to log in every time. In firefox settings I have "remember history" on.

Everytime I go to facebook before I sign in a grey overlay appears on the sign in page and when I scroll down this message appears. I'm getting tired of it. Does anyone know how I can bypass all this and sign straight in like I used to be able to. I also find it strange that I seem to be the only person experiencing this as when I search for similar instances I get nothing. This started about a week ago, I have to press 'accept all' all the time, why can't this be automatic. Thanks for any help.

I have set firefox to clear the cache when I close it. However, when I reopen the browser I find there is still a varying quantity of data still stored. I manually ask it to clear the data which it does except for 170kb of data which is untouched! No matter how many times I do this there is still 170kb of data cached. What is this data and how do I clear everything?

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?

Hi! I have the Firefox browser on my MacBook Pro and I also use the Mozilla VPN. I’ve been trying to sign into my Firefox account for several weeks now and keep getting a ‘Cookies and local storage are required’ error message. The problem is that cookies are already enabled. I have tried restarting, updating the browser, doing it with the VPN on and off, listing firefox as an exception, and everything else I can think of. I’m currently entering this on my phone, because the browser also won’t let me sign into my account on my laptop without enabling cookies and local storage.

Any suggestions? I keep getting stuck in a loop.
