Firefox warned me that they had stopped a social media site from following me. GOOD but worrying, the warning came just after I failed to get into my bank account for the first time in four years. Which social media site was this? I do not use ANY?

The website host has told me it might be that Firefox has done something to my cookies. I'm not tech savvy enough to fix this myself. I can get to my web page email account just fine using chrome but would prefer not to transfer all my saved pages to them. Lunar pages hosts my website. It's an undeveloped site as I use this only for my business emails. The website is ewingsteel.com

I was able to yesterday, not today. Won't install cookies. I have gone through all of of the tech support stuff, but it does not follow its own instructions. It's kind of important, and kind of time sensitive.

Also, just generally, firefox has been not allowing me to save site instructions like it used to. Is that a thing now? Because it's a total speedbump.

On my other computer I open Firefox and immediately get a pile of pop-ups. These pop-ups seem to be cookie requests from my speed dial sites, and no matter what I click ("allow" or "deny") they keep coming back and then freeze up and I can't use the browser so I have to turn off computer. Help, please.

Windows 10 Pro. I used to be able to choose "tools" then "security & privacy" then "manage date..." and it was trivial to select and remove cookies. This page has changed and it no longer has the "save changes" or whatever it used to be to finish the deletion of cookies. That area of this page is now blank and it is impossible to delete any cookies.

I have Windows 10 and was using Internet Explorer. I want to change to Firefox, but installation will not occur because Firefox says cookies need to be enabled. I checked that cookies ARE enabled by both Edge and Internet Explorer. I don't know what to do next. Is Microsoft Edge somehow blocking this? I would be glad to uninstall Edge and IE from my computer but I don't see how to do so.

Hi everybody, As website owner my convern comes after mozilla is blocking tracking by default meaning that google ads cannot be served by default, only if users will choose so. Most of the mozilla users don't even know what tracking means, so the chances of choosing to allow tracking and serve ads are very low. Many websites owners use adsense ads to pay for their servers/hosting, their hard work, etc. and as you know every visitors is comsuming resources and bandwidth, so my questions is: Why webmasters shouldn't block mozilla users since the chances to generate revenue thru ads is very low, to none? I get that it's a great feature to the user, but should be an option rather than a default setting? If webmasters choose to block mozilla users, there will be a lot of users who can't access a specific information and they don't even know the cause.
