Firefox Quantum v. 65 allows the user to block "all cookies (will cause websites to break)". However, a cookie designated "marketingapis.com" continues to appear in the list of cookies whenever the browser is used. When attempting to block the cookie through the managing permissions option, the blocked cookie disappears from the list of blocked cookie list and appears in the regular cookie list whenever the browser is subsequently relaunched. I would be grateful for any advice how to prevent this cookie from reappearing.

If this is a cookie set by Firefox, information should be disclosed upfront, and users should have a method to prevent its use (or opt out) for all purposes.

Everything else seems to be fine but when I click on preferences, it does nothing. I've restarted my mac several times, updated my mac to the latest software and deleted and reinstalled firefox several times as well. Is there anything that can do or install for me to access my preferences?

I've had no problem with previous versions of Firefox. Since installing version 63.0.3, constant problems with crashing, hanging or loading homepage and websites extremely slowly. Sometimes loading of homepage cycles through two or three partial sequences before completing. Have tried all obvious recommended solutions without success, including safe mode, refresh and reinstall. Am using MacBook Pro 10.10.5 and BT as my home page. I use Safari as my other browser and it continues to run without any issues

another 'let's develop something for the sake of developing' update that nobody seems to have asked for.

what is the point of seeing a screengrab of the page you are bookmarking?

and then - in case you forgot what you just did a second a go - you are reminded that it was 'saved to Library!' oh yeah? do you take your users for idiots?

how do I disable or remove these annoyances.

this started couple months back already, but initially it only affected the "unread all emails" button. i used to be able to click the button with the cursor, but have been unable to do so for the past few months. instead, i have to click it with the enter button. this problem has now affected my google drive, where i cannot create new documents with the cursor. i'm not sure how to explain the problem, but it is unresponsive when i click the buttons with the cursor, however works when i choose the button with the keypads and the enter key. is this a problem with proxy or cookies saved? can anyone help me with fixing this? thanks in advance

I am able to access linkedin.com with the Safari browser 10.1.2 but not the Firefox browser 57.0.4. I am able to access all other websites with Firefox AND some other areas of the LinkedIn site. I have been able to access LinkedIn via Firefox for many years and wish to continue to do so. I do not get an error message. The page will just not load. My only recent software change was updating my McAfee software to 4.1.3.0. Please tell me how to get Firefox to work with LinkedIn on my computer. Thanks.

What I have tried: Cleared cached pages, cleared cookies, cleared saved passwords for the site, cleared history for the site, checked settings to make sure site was not blocked. AND I contacted both McAfee and LinkedIn who said they could not help because it was a browser issue, suggesting I switch browsers.

We sell digital content - mp3 files that are zipped. In version 47.0 we suddenly experienced that our files were tagged as harmful when downloaded. The next day the issue disappeared suddenly. Today, it started to appear again and our customers are complaining - clearly worried what is happening. Any idea what is happening? How mp3 files zipped into one archive can be pointed our as harmful? How come it happens, then it disappears and appears again? Is this meant to be a protection or a piss content with the users? In our case we feel the later. How can this be fixed for good? Any help appreciated.

asm.js 10* slowdown since firefox 45

Hello, I'm developping a math application compiled from c++ to javscript with emscripten 1.34.1 http://www-fourier.ujf-grenoble.fr/~parisse/xcasen.html (source http://www-fourier.ujf-grenoble.fr/~parisse/giac/emgiac.tgz) Under Firefox 45, performances are good, for example on my Mac, factoring a 128 bit integer takes 1/10 of second http://www-fourier.ujf-grenoble.fr/%7eparisse/xcasen.html#+time(ifactor(2**128+1))& But with newer Firefox releases, the speed as decreased, by a factor of 10 with Firefox 48, now it takes one second for the same computation. The Firefox desktop version is now significantly slower than the native version and the mobile version becomes really too slow. Is there some explanation and workaround other than telling my users to downgrade to Firefox 45? Thanks.

Hi all. Trying to transfer bookmarks from FF 48.0.1 to Safari 9.1.2 -so as to be able to sync with iPad Safari. I've always done this by means of the direct import option from Firefox in Safari but this has stopped working. Nothing happens, not even an error message. Not 100% sure, but I think this started happening after upgrading to FF 48.0.1. No recent Safari upgrades. Thanks for your help.
