Firefox 17 is not retaining cookie setting for websites. Besides removing all existing exceptions I had, it will no longer retain exceptions for cookies. I have the basic cookie setting as unchecked for accepting cookies (that is the default is not to accept cookies), but when I add an exception, it does not retain it when I close my browser. This is very serious stuff. I will have to move from my beloved Firefox to something that *does* work. I can't believe you haven't been flooded with complaints. Or maybe you have.

Firefox 55.0.3, windows 10

The goal is to not accept any cookies except ones that I specifically allow. (For example for my webmail account.)

I am trying these settings:

Accept cookies unchecked. cookie exeptions allow. Tried all combinations for "always use private browsing mode" and "clear history when firefox closes."

Basically it ignores the cookies exceptions. This used to work fine on previous firefox versions, on other computers. The failure described here occurs for installations of firefox 55.0.3 on two different windows 10 computers.

I see several cookies in the CCleaner cookies windows that I can't find anywhere else. These cookies do not appear in the cookies list under Firefox Settings, and Firefox is the only browser I use.

Some examples are connect.facebook.net, cdnjs.cloudfare.com, and login.wikimedia.org, and these cookies keep coming back after cleaning them up even though I haven't visited those sites and have 3rd-party cookies blocked in Firefox except from visited sites. Notice in the attached image that these cookies are listed in CCleaner, but they aren't listed in Firefox Settings.

Can anyone tell me where these cookies are stored and why I can't see them in Firefox Settings?

hi all i'm having a problem with firefox browser, its not keeping my website logged in. This does not occur after i close my browser but after a few hours of log in, even if i leave the browser opened and come again back later.

I've been using firefox for ages now and never really had this issue. It has only starting happening only recently, since early this week or last week the most.

I've also manually cleared all cookies/log in etc and updated firefox to the latest version maybe it helps, but nothing changed.

Please note that I do not clear history/active log in etc neither it is set up to do it automatically when i close browser also i do not have any 3rd party apps that forbid cookies. I had a firefox addon before but disabled it maybe it was interfering, but it still didnt resolve the problem.

any help much appreciated as it is getting quite irritating. Thanks in advance Lee

Hey I have to delete the cookies once in a while to keep my device fast. But there are some important cookies that I need to keep. But as I delete all cookies, they get deleted too. So is there any way that the cookies that get stored from websites, will be transferred to a cloud storage. Like Onedrive, Dropbox, Google Drive etc? It will be a lot of help if it is possible.

The cleanup did not affect my bookmarks, they are all there. History however seems to be gone forever, a reference list that I took months to set up and that means an equally long setback to an editorial project. Weep, hair tearing, ashes all over my torn off clothes will not, apparently, restore that history. Booahhh! Tell me there is some home, please.

The problem occurs with Firefox (which I use a lot) but not with Microsft Edge (which previously I used only rarely). In Firefox: I can still logon, and proceed to see details, but when I enter into a financial transaction I cannot proceed further. Clearing 'Cookies and Site Data', but not 'Cached Web Content', as recommended by Firefox, makes no difference to the problem.

I have been using XP as the OS for many, many years and have been using Firefox also with never any problems with blocking cookies using that feature. As of today, when I received the new computer, this is not functional. I have attempted to block google.com cookie several times and each time, it keeps appearing in the cookies list which shows what is on the computer. Is this a problem with Win 7, or a change in Firefox? The options windows have changed in some aspects as well. I downloaded Firefox immediately after getting the new computer.

This is very, very frustrating. Any and all help will be most appreciated.

I've been using Firefox for ages and never had this problem which was introduced the last few months. Every few weeks Firefox will require me to login to sites that I was already logged in. Addons that require login are affected too. After the second time this happened, I tried resetting Firefox's settings and even creating a new clean profile, but a few weeks later the issue reappeared. I don't know for sure if this is cookies related.

Hey all, I am really getting tired of seeing the "news and interests" pics that pop up from bottom of home page using Firefox. Can I remove, delete or otherwise get RID of it...? I use bing as a home page...maybe that's the problem...LOL...! I just like it because it's simple and uncluttered EXCEPT for those damn pics at the bottom. I can turn them off with the custom control pull down...the 3 bars on the upper right side of bing home page, but after you close FF, the pics just come back...the custom controls for bing home page don't stay locked...! I'm using Windows 10, x64 Home, latest FF updates, only using ABP, BitWarden, as FF Add-ons.

Thanks

Hi All,

Several times I've cleared my cache and managed to also delete ALL of my logins. I most certainly do uncheck the box for "Cookies and Site Data", leaving only "Cached Web Content" checked and it still deletes all info. Also whenever I go back in that page, both are (again) checked.

What am I doing wrong?

Is there a way in "about:config" to default this area to "Cached Web Content" only?

When visiting www.cheathappens.com I am forced to log in every time, which it has never been that way. Then upon log in, every time l click a link on the site I am logged out. The admins of this site say that something is blocking their cookies. I am set up to receive cookies, and have tried totally removing AdBlock Plus, and still no luck. Some users told me they use AdBlock Plus and are not having this issue, as was the case for myself up until about the last couple of months. Any ideas?

Until this week I easily handled my cookie preferences by NOT checking the "except cookies from sites" option. I then made exceptions to this default with the exceptions tab or through a cookie manager add-on. Since the last recent Firefox update, this no longer works. Nothing in cookie exceptions does anything. In addition to not letting me allow cookies, it will also not let me block cookies when I do check the "except cookies from sites" option. The Cookie Exceptions Do Nothing. I will appreciate any real help.
