Recently i've started having an issue where all of my browser history & cookies gets deleted when i close firefox. I know that is an existing setting but i have that turned off in all the places i can find. This has only started happening recently and the only thing that shows up in my history are my bookmarked tabs- like it shows each bookmarked tab as if i have gone and clicked each tab in my history and literally nothing else. I have been on my pc throughout the day and have searched many things yet upon closing all tabs & windows everything is deleted. I know this sounds like the opposite of an issue but i rely on my history a lot to help me go back to sites & helpful infomation.

I am unable to sign up for a credit card. The application form does not come up. There is the possibility that it is being blocked, perhaps by a cookie, perhaps by a security feature in the Browser. How do I turn off whatever is blocking the form from popping up?

Hello

I'm trying to sign into a Microsoft 365 email account but can't get beyond a screen saying "To use this site, you need to change your browser settings to enable DOM storage or cookies."

I've enabled DOM storage and cookies but no difference. I've cleared cookies and no help. I'm running Firefox 115.0.2 and Linux Mint.

Is part of the problem that I hate Microsoft and they know it?

Thanks

As the subject says, I logged into my work gmail on my personal laptop, and since then my personal gmail (as well as every other gmail I used on this laptop BEFORE logging into my work one) is now under this Administrator, on all devices. I've contacted the IT department and they said they only had my work gmail under their system. More digging around and I found it to be a cookies issue, as Google Chrome (even after logging in and out of all my gmails personal and work) was absolutely fine and so was Microsoft edge.

No matter how many times I fresh install, clear cookies, or change settings in Firefox, my personal gmail is still locked under restricted mode. Linked below is proof that Google doesn't recognize my account under restriced mode, yet Youtube still says I'm being managed.

I would like my google accounts back, and if I have to wipe all my Firefox data and abandon it, I will. I just don't want to use another browser

Hi Mozilla community,

The Developer Tools -> Storage -> Cookies pane shows cookies currently being stored by Firefox.

If I close my browser, these cookies are automatically deleted. However, if I follow the steps on [1], the cookies are still there, and don't get deleted. *Why?*

Thanks in advance!

Steps to reproduce:

- Start a new Firefox session
- Open Developer Tools -> Storage -> Cookies and see that the list is empty
- Go to youtube.com and click Accept All on the cookies popup
- Developer Tools -> Storage -> Cookies now shows a cookie from YouTube, as per the attached screenshot
- Go to Settings->Privacy & Security->Cookies and Site Data -> Clear Data -> Clear
- Go back to Developer Tools -> Storage -> Cookies and click on the refresh icon
- The YouTube cookie is still there
- However either of the following actions will correctly delete this cookie:

1) closing firefox (with Always Use Private Browsing Mode enabled) 2) manually deleting the cookie from the list in Developer Tools -> Storage -> Cookies

Hello,

When I sign in to new websites, they never do keep me logged in. I noticed this problem is present only for services that are working for my friends, that use other browsers, so they can keep users signed in. For the websites that I had been logged in before it stopped working, I'm still signed in and I can enjoy not having to log in every time.

I believe it all started happening when I cleared my cookies once, around half a year ago.

I did however check my settings, and I don't have selected option, that clears cookies after each browser session. My password saving feature works as well.

  1. 1 I set the Manage Data tab to 'Allow' for sites I want cookies saved for. This sets the http and https addresses for the sites I enter.
  2. 2 I set the same sites in the 'Manage Exceptions' tab so that these sites do not have their cookies deleted.
  3. 3 Save Settings
  4. 4 Close and re-open Firefox. All cookies are deleted.

I suspect this is a bug?

Cheers.

I notice some problems with firefox since the latest update:

1. Right after the update I enabled the settings to empty the cookies each time FF is closed down ("Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed"). But, I ended not liking this feature since it constantly demanded me to remember my passcodes and became a headache, so I disabled it. But FF still continues deleting cookies each time, and seem to be stuck on deleting cookies.

I've been given various suggestions to go to resolve this, like reinstall, config, etc., uninstall apps, but nothing helps.

2. Another issue I have is FF with Facebook. Using Facebook in FF I can't backspace and I can't post any comment. If I try to post comments it simply moves the cursor down on the page but you can't post anything.

None of these issues continue in other browsers so it must be FF related.

3. FF seem to use enormous amount of memory and power usage, especially when multiple tabs are open (or even if tabs are not open it shows previous tabs in the Task Manager). I'm not a programmer or coder but a friend of mine who was a senior programmer in the banking industry told me it's possible for coders to solve this issue. If I understood him right (and I apologize if my wording is wrong), a solution would be to keep tabs in sleep state if they are open but not active on top so they don't keep running or updating data all the time. This of course would need consideration that sometimes people want to listen to videos or audio while using other tabs - but that would involve every single tab and can perhaps be provided as an option.

Many people like to keep multiple tabs open, yet still have good browsing performance. Maybe there can be a new project to offer better tab management to make them easily visible and accessible? Bookmarks are not that great because they disapper into a long stream of text without clarity what exactly they are until you open the page, and even then scrolling down and using bookmarks is not that great if you have many saved......

Firefox beta release: 116.0b6 (64-bit)

On sites such as BBC.com, Youtube.com and Facebook.com I am not getting the normal cookie consent pop-up option which used to automatically show on opening the sites. Other sites are still showing the cookie consent option pop-ups. This means I cannot select if I wish to accept or reject cookies on several sites that used to allow me the option.

In checking about:config, the cookiebanners.service.mode is set to 1, which I believe this the correct setting for enabling the cookies consent pop-up option.

Is there any fix for the cookie consent pop-up not working on certain sites within the EU? I am not using a VPN or pop-up blocker. Tracking protection is set to Standard, cookies and site data are always deleted on closing Firefox and "Do Not Track” signal is set to always. Deleting all installed FF extensions has no effect either.

In other browsers on the same PC, Chrome and Edge, the cookie consent option does still work as it should on the sites mentioned. In Firefox it doesn't.

This is only happening on one PC. My latop has the same FF beta build installed and is not showing this behaviour, it still automatically shows the cookie consent pop-ups when visiting sites such as BBC.com, Youtube.com and Facebook.com.
