So for a while now on my Mac and on my Windows 10 machine Firefox keeps forgetting my cookies. So I have to signing back in its very annoying to say the least. I have checked the settings and FireFox says I have over 1GB of saved Cookie data. I also do not have "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" selected. I am at a loss to figure this out?

Programatically set cookie from command-line before Firefox first-startup

I'm working on a project where we run Firefox in a container and I need to insert a cookie into the sqlite cookie DB to ensure it's available when Firefox is started. I have some script that runs before Firefox is started and know that I can create a profile on the command line e.g. `firefox --headless -CreateProfile foo` However this simply creates the profile dir and does not create the sqlite cookie DB or relevant tables. Is there a way to force creation of the cookie DB from the command line? Ideally, I want to create the Firefox profile & sqlite cookie DB at the point I build my docker image. The cookie would be inserted when the container runs, before Firefox is started. Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks!

Have upgraded to Firefox 88.0 on Mac. Have also recently cleared history, but have reinstated the web sites where I want my cookies retained.

In the past, I could quit Firefox and when I next boot it, my daily sites like Yahoo and Ebay do not require password log-in since I have "exempted" them from being cleared on the previous Firefox quit.

I do use "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" - but this is where the exceptions should come into play.

Until just recently this all worked fine. Now it does not and am required to re-log in after a fresh boot.

Any suggestions? Thanks. - jr

Hi,

I've tried multiple times to clear the cache from Preferences by "Clearing Data" but the count still reads that there is cache. I made sure to refresh but that wasn't the issue. I also tried restarting firefox.

Next, I quit firefox, went to ~/Library/Caches/Firefox/Profiles/ since I'm using a mac and I deleted the cache2 folder. I emptied the trash to boot. There were still files in the cache!

Currently, the cache is 535KB. In About:Cache, Disk cache reads 229 KiB and 11 entries. However, I can't see the entries when I click on "List Cache Entries."

This has never happened to me before. Please help me clear the cache!

Only today, I updated to 78.10.0esr. I don't know if that's the issue.

What is available to the visited site in Private Browsing in a new window? Private browsing does not save cookies or history, but does it make previously saved cookies and history from un-private browsing available?

I ask because there is advice in a couple of YouTube videos about how to search for keywords to use in your new videos. This advice is that when hunting for potential popular search keywords, using a new private window to do the search will cause YouTube to do an "unbiased" search. That is, it will not be able to look at your YouTube history to determine viewing preferences when it presents you with recommended (auto complete) searches.

(Oops. I just realized I am doing this in a private window. I hope that doesn't matter.)

Thanks, Tom

I'm in permanent private browsing mode, so whenever I close Firefox the YouTube cookie exception I put under Manage exceptions gets deleted, now my question is if there is no way to make the exception permanent while in private browsing mode, why is the "Manage exceptions" menu enabled? why not disable it/grey it out?

Directed at the goomers who write the software

So, having been with Firefox since the end of Netscape Navigator... I have had one major irritation that is as follows:

Why is it not possible to simply save a cookie somewhere in a little piggy vault, and forgoing any other setting, and will save that cookie (specifically my banking cookies).

And be able to clear other data when closing the browser without losing said cookie(s)

no need for response, I am not interested in reading another, well, check a, but not b, or if you use r, then uncheck x.... I am not out to recreate a bomb, just wanted to simply get into my bank

Hi there,

I've been trying without much luck to find out when or in what Firefox version, the config setting network.cookie.sameSite.schemeful will be set to 'true' by default?

Can anyone point me in the direction of where this information is or let me know the answer if they already know it?

And I'll apologise in advance if this is in an obvious spot that I've just stupidly missed.

Thanks! Simon

In the "Cookies" Storage Type in Storage Inspector (Shift+F9):

Name Value ... ... csrftoken AB...c sessionid XY...z ... ...

However, in Web Console (Ctrl+Shift+K), if I execute console.log(document.cookie), the only thing I get is "csrftoken=AB...c". "sessionid=XY...z" is missing.

How can I get the sessionid of the cookie in Web Console?
