Is there a Firefox setting that automatically clears cookies? When I turned my computer on, it had been cleared of cookies since the last time I had it on a few hours ago, but I didn't do it. No one else here to use the computer but me. I don't want cookies cleared automatically. How do I change it back to manual? I use Firefox Browser 120.0

thank you

I have a web app that uses cookies to reference sessions that contain login status.

For example: when I log in, a session is created that tracks that I am logged in. When I go to another function/page the cookie is deleted, thus I am no longer logged in.

I have the Security set to "Standard" and the website URL unprotected.

Chrome and Safari are fine, it's only Firefox.

What am I missing?

Cookies and exceptions always deleted

I would like Firefox to remember exceptions and store specific cookies that I need for the Microsoft authenticator, and other two-stage logins. Whatever setting I choose (untick delete cookiex and sitedata, assign websites to manage exceptions etc) upon closing Firefox everything is deleted, always. This means I can't use any authenticator to remember me when I want it to do so.

I used a third party cookie extension (Cookie AutoDelete) to whitelist some sites and it worked perfectly fine until an apparent recent update by Firefox. I am on Firefox 101.0.1 on Mac.

Any ideas?

Hello, I am trying to get FF to keep some cookies for intranet sites, so that I dont need to login all the time when I open some sites on the intranet. Currently I have: Cookies&Site Data: Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed, An entry in "Manage Exceptions" for each server address (e.g. https://host.domain.tld) with "Allow". Privacy&Security: Use custom settings for history, Clear history when FF closes, in "Settings" everything ticked. But I still need to login on all sites after I closed FF.

How can I avoid this logins everytime I open a site?

Firefox update from 111.0.1 to 112 set the dates of most cookies into the far future and keeps doing it

The last update made it look like all cookies were gone, except there are still there but the dates are wrong. 90%+ of them have their "last used" date set to "in 4,137 years" (see screenshot). Websites ask to accept cookies every time Firefox is restarted, which makes them basically useless. I have to use phone authentication each time I want to check gmail on my desktop because the site acts as if it had never seen me before.

Firefox's safe mode is the same. I ran the antivirus on the whole system and it found nothing. Windows clock works fine. Other Firefox functions seem to behave like normal. Other browsers are unaffected.

I filed a bug report and I'm thinking about trying the last extended support version to see if it still happens. I backed up the whole profile and I would like to keep all my data, including the cookies.

So, what can I do to try and get this fixed fast, and possibly keep my cookies, too? Thank you very much!

Oh, good grief! How many times do I have to enter this information?! 1. I want to manage blocked cookies via a "blacklist", rather than a whitelist. Also, I want to select cookies to block from a current list, instead of having to memorize them and type them in manually. 2. I have "strict" tracking protection enabled, yet I get permanent cookies installed from websites I do not visit or interact with. For instance, if I open a new site web page, and that page has a Youtube video, even though it doesn't play (because I have autoplay blocked), yet the page adds a permanent Youtube cookie to my computer, that gets updated (and often multiplies), whenever I start my browser. Please provide a means to prevent this!

On my computer, I started using a VPN and I accessed a website like Avast.com (clicked OK on their cookie privacy policy) with Mozilla Firefox after forgetting to clear my past cookies and browsing data (from before using the VPN). Could that website or Avast.com (website server) have been able to track/obtain my real IP info or location through my browser's cookies/previous browsing data (from prior, different websites that I accessed)?

Please excuse my carelessness and ignorance. I am new to this. I don't know much about computers and the internet.
