Hi Guys

Firefox does not remember logins!I know it is controlled by cookies and I have sought help here a few days ago.

No matter what I do and what I change I cannot get it save logins like to Brisbane Times .com.au which is set for my home page. I can go back and it will save the login but when I close a document or when the BT homepage renews it will not keep my login (Edge does). Every time I log into Twitter I have to log in again. The enhanced tracking is off for this site but no matter what I change I don't seem to be able to get it to remember my logins. I know this is cookie related so just don't seem to be able to get the combination. I have tried to follow all the FF help menues but to no avail. I would appreciate a step by step what to do if that is possible

I am unable to use the' how to enable cookies on Firefox, . i have tried to find the tools on firefix without success. When I click onthe bar on the top right hand side of the screen it opens but there is no 'OPTIONS' section shown.

Another problem is when I try  to add grammartically to  my firfefox browser it  does not add it.
I have been using an earlier version of Firefox without having any of these problems. When I try to sign into my virgin media  which I keep in my bookmarks it says that  cookies are not enabled in my browser. Something is rather strange with this browser and I await your comments.

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?

How to save cookies from certain websites

Hello,

I got wondering about how I can save cookies from certain websites that I frequent like my e-mail for instance so I wouldn't have to type in my information again and again after clearing the cookies data in Firefox from time to time so it won't slow down or something. I tried putting in the full website address in the Manage Exceptions under Privacy & Security but still see the cookie(s) from that website on the list. Hope I'm making some sense here and that one of you might know something as in how I can get around this. Thank you in advance if you reply to this post.

I use soundcloud often, and have recently had the issue of the website not being able to load after i launch it the first time. Autofill passwords works fine, it loads with no issue, but then when i try to load it again it's unable to. if i delete the website's cookies i'm able to load into it again, otherwise it just won't work. I've completely cleared out my cache and that helped for a little while but the issue still persists. Is there any known instances of this/ any plugins i can use to always remove the cookies of a specific website, as that may be a viable workaround.

Remove manually a specific website from cookies.sqlite file

Hi,

I'm developping a custom tool in order to automatically clean my cookies from several websites. For example, I would like to automatically remove cookies from twitter.com every time I launch my tool. I'm under Win10x64, firefox v89, tool developped in python.

To do this, once firefox is closed, my tool go in my profile folder, access to cookies.sqlite and delete row associated to twitter.com

-> DELETE from moz_cookies WHERE host == '.twitter.com';

The database is saved, no more "twitter" in my cookies.sqlite file, and the tool ensures there is no cookies.sqlite-wal or cookies.sqlite-shm files left.

After that, when I open again twitter, I am no longer connected to my session, but I got an error which seems to be related to cookies (see screenshot).

Moreover, when I oppenup the firefox cookies manager, there is still twitter cookies in the list, but 0 cookies associated.

Where is my mistake ? Can you help me solve my problem ? Thanks

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.

Hi II am a relative computer novice and I am confused by the concept of deleting cache and cookies.

I am having trouble with Firefox browser on Vanguard website. I was told to clear my cache and/or cookies.

I don't currently store any Vanguard passwords on my computer.

However, I’m afraid that if I clear cache or clear cookies I will inadvertently remove the passwords for all my other websites.

Is there a way to clear cache and clear cookies without deleting passwords?
