I used to be able to right click on the yahoo mail tab and it would allow me to select a work, personal etc. yahoo email accounts. This would let me be logged into multiple email accounts at the same time and each one would be on a different tab.

About every month or so Firefox decides to delete my login info and i have to relog everywhere again.

While this is not a critical issue, its a very annoying one.

My cookie settings are on standard, and the "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" square is unticked. I use Dashlane for my passwords but ive used it for a long time before on mozilla and other browsers and i've never had issues with it.

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?

How to make Firefox accept a third-party cookie used for authentication by a Java web application?

Hi,

I am a developer currently working on an open-source solution called GeoNetwork (https://github.com/geonetwork/core-geonetwork/). This application has a Java backend that uses a JSESSIONID cookie to track user sessions. One instance of the application can be accessed anonymously here: https://sextant.ifremer.fr/Donnees/Catalogue

The session cookie is set on the first request to the backend with the following parameters:

Domain: "sextant.ifremer.fr" expirationDate: "Session" HostOnly: true HttpOnly: true SameSite: "None" Secure: true

This application theoretically allows login in from a different origin. For example from https://www.milieumarinfrance.fr/Acces-aux-donnees/Catalogue, which under the hood points to the same backend. We noticed recently that when accessing the application from a different origin in Firefox, the network requests aimed at the "sextant.ifremer.fr" host *do not carry any existing session cookie*, thus rendering authenticated access impossible.

The existing session cookie is correctly used when I add an "allow" exception for the sextant.ifremer.fr origin in the cookies settings of Firefox (see attached screenshot in French). So I figure that it's Firefox that decides not to use any existing cookie when on this origin.

Is there any way to indicate to Firefox that this cookie is legitimate and that it is needed for essential functionalities, without relying on the user allowing the cookie explicitly?

Thanks a lot in advance!

Every week or so, I discover that my most visited sites ask me again for cookie consent, meaning whatever I saved the previous time gets removed. This also happens with extensions (for example, I get logged out of my password manager extension). I strongly suspect this happens after Firefox performs updates in the background.

It's incredibly frustrating and I am considering switching to another browser, after using Firefox for more than 10 years. This behavior started this year, and I've been struggling to understand why and what I can do about it.

I would very much appreciate some help on fixing this, it's driving me crazy. Thanks in advance.

So for my main gmail I have 2 step for obvious security reasons, but I want it to trust my PC so that I don't have to pull out my phone every time I try to access it. No matter how many times I click the option to trust this PC it always ask' for the 2 step, and I don't see the PC on the trusted list in my gmail settings. I have already added "mail.google.com" to the exceptions part of the cookie and site data settings, even "account.google.com" but it just doesn't seem to work. What is the obvious thing that I am missing?

Something recently changed in Firefox and/or Google Mail. Now I am always asked to sign in to Google Mail. The solution for this problem in Chrome is to allow all cookies. I tried that, after clearing Cache, allow all cookies in Chrome but I am still asked to sign in to Google.Mail. I also removed all by Block, Delete cookie Add-ons in Firefox but it's still asking me to sign in to Google.Mail. What fixes this?

I am trying to transfer my cookies from Chrome over to Firefox, yet the import wizard has no mention of cookies under the chrome category. Things such as Edge Legacy and Internet Explorer have the cookies tab available.

I read that there was a way to do it manually, but I'm unsure of how.

I know things such as CookieBro exist, but I'm unsure if they're safe and they seem like a way to get all my tokens logged.

I love using Firefox but was very surprised. First thing I do is run anti spyware software to clear all the cookies, etc. Then, I opened a private window and access some of my private information. Closed the browser. Then ran the anti spyware again only to find 3 files that were found as invasive. I thought if I used the private window I was protected. What happened? Did I misunderstand?

I’m trying to get to www.indeed.com using Firefox. When I get to the website it says, “checking if the site connection is secure, www.indeed.com needs to review the security of your connection before proceeding.” I used inspect to help find the cause of the issue. It says “some cookies are misusing the recommended samesite attribute” the cookie “cf_chl_2” came up 5 times saying “ cf_chl_2” does not have a proper “samesite” attribute value. Soon, cookies without the “samesite” attribute or with an invalid value will be treated as “lax” this means that the cookie will no longer be sent in third-party contexts. If your application depends on this cookie being available in such contexts, please add the “samesite=none” attribute to it. To know more about the “samesite” attribute, read https://developer.mozilla.org/docs/Web/HTTP/Headers/Set-Cookie/SameSite

Another cookie is “cf_chl_rc_m”

I don’t want to make these cookies secure if they could potentially cause my computer harm or steal my info. I tried uninstalling Firefox and reinstalling it but it still kept all of my favorites so I’m assuming it didn’t reset and fix Firefox like I had hoped. I don’t have a firefox account on my computer so I’m not sure how favorites came back. Do you know why?

I am using a MacBook Pro M2 chip 2022 and the latest version of firefox. I have also updated my computer. I have run Norton and found no threats on my computer. And firefox wasn’t giving me this issue before.

What do you think I should do?

Thank you in advance for helping.

An error occurred during a connection to www.newyorker.com. This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.

It looks like firefox is set up to accept cookies. Where do we need to make the change?

Well, I'm trying to make use of the option to delete cookies without deleting some that I allow, but apparently it's buggy. I want Firefox to clear cookies every time I close the browser, however, I manually added some exceptions and even then the browser deletes these exceptions when I close it, if I can add exceptions, it's so they won't be deleted when closing.

Skysports.com always asks me to select cookie options. Allow or View options and reject. I always choose the second one. The problem is. I can never choose the options. Opera browser, a better browser than this one, shows the options and allows me to choose. Sky just shows the same box every single page and I have to go through the same sequence every time.
