Hello,

after an internet session I'm using the "Clear Recent History" (STRG+SHIFT+Delete) function. Sometimes this window doesn't close automatically, when I'm click the OK-Button.

Is this a BUG?

Best regards

Thomas

Some how in the process of attempting to download Heraldry software, question popped up saying I needed to accept this (????) to down loan. Now when i go into Firefox, Adsensedetective.com pops up and I can not even get into my email account without going thru this stupid site. I can not figure how to delete it.

Firefox removes all cookies when I shut it down; that is the option I have chosen. I know I can opt out of this by allowing cookies for certain websites.

I don't want to allow Google/Youtube cookies in this way: I don't want Google to come back the next time and continue to build their cookie cache; I want them to start with a "Google cookie free" browser. 

But.....

This means I have to set my Google cookie settings every time I start my browser and visit any of the Google sites. This annoys me a lot.

Is it possible to single out certain cookies (e.g. the one with the Google cookie settings) that I want to keep, while I remove all the other Google cookies on shut down?

(Before you suggest: not using Google/Youtube is not an option).

Thanx,


Thom

On just one website I am having this issue. When I close just that one page, with FF still open on other browser pages, I am not only logged out, but all my information is lost and I have to set up the account each subsequent visit. Every single time. Their cookie still appears in the list, but now Ionly see one cookie for each site, not the breakdown I used to see I don't know how many cookies are actually still there, or if any "sub" cookies have been deleted. I do not clear cookies on full closure of FF and this only occurs on this one website that I visit. That same site viewed on my phone stays logged on and keeps all my info etc. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Dear Firefox Community,

I can't create subject or new post on AMD Community forum. I mean this website: https://community.amd.com/


This can be problem with firefox because before update to version 91.0 I had not any problem. I think that this is problem with cookies because when I open community.amd.com website in private mode I can create only one subject or new post. If I want to second subject or post I can see information like this: "Post flooding detected (user tried to post more than 1 messages within 600 seconds)". Like I said when I want to create second subject or post this is not possible. To solve this problem I must log out from the website next exit the tab and open new one in private mode, log out again and I can now create again but only one post/subject.

This can be also problem with new version of firefox 91.0 because before update to this version I had not any problem. I think that this is problem with cookies.

Can you tell me if you have also this issue?

Thanks.

Hello.

I would like to know if there is documentation on how does Firefox "SSB" (or "PWA") interact with containers (and the Multi-Account Containers), please.

In simpler words: is there a way to have different SSBs for a single website using different accounts in each of them? (e.g., two different SSB "Gmails" or "Office 365" etc?)

And do SSB own their specific containers or can we link an SSB to an existing container used in the 'general' Firefox?

Thanks!

With FF91, it seems I can only delete cookies for an entire domain. I occasionally have an issue with forums.xfinity.com where it won't load. Deleting the cookies for forums.xfinity.com would fix it. Now, with FF91, I have to delete ALL xfinity.com cookies! It seems as if there should be a way to open up the 'container' to see the sub-domains, and then you could further open that up if needed to delete an individual cookie.

I have 3 accounts on a particular website. All three account login credentials are saved in firefox however one of them (the wrong one, since it is the one I use least often) is pre-filled when I first go to the site. How do I remove the setting that one of them is pre-filled? I want just the regular drop-down choice of all three. I have deleted that accounts credentials and cleared the cache, but as soon as I add the account info again, it is automatically pre-filled instead of just listed with the other two options.

I put items in a cart on a website that I accessed through firefox. I did not sign into any accounts on the website and I did not purchase the items. I then cleared my cookies, cache, and offline data. Later on I went back to the website and wanted to put items back in the cart to re-price everything and discovered that the items were still in the cart from before. I cleared cookies, etc. again and the items were still in the cart. I then went to the website on Chrome and the items were still in the cart. Again, I did not sign into any accounts or anything. I never use Chrome. Just went straight to the website on Chrome and went to the cart and the items were there even though I didn't use Chrome to put anything in the cart. I then cleared cookies, etc. on Chrome and the items were still in the cart. I tried this on Edge and same thing. I have used Bitdefender, Malwarebytes, Hitman Pro, and CC Cleaner and no program is finding the malware or spyware or trojan or whatever this is. This is a well-known website that even has a facebook page. I messaged the webmaster and I posted on their facebook page and I'm being ignored. What is this and how do I get rid of it?
