Several Firefox updates ago, I lost the ability to retain cookies in Firefox. The result is I have to keep signing into websites (e.g., Amazon, Facebook), rather than the websites "remembering" me, which is how it had been for years.

I keep trying to add these (and other) website to Cookies "Manage Exceptions" - but I'm unable to select "Allow". When I do, only "Allow for Sessions" is selected for each website. And even "Allow for Sessions" doesn't last. The websites are gone the next time I open Settings.

Ask to save logins and passwords for websites is selected. "Remember browsing history" IS selected.

Despite a number of updates, this problem has persisted. Please help.

This is a two-fold question.

Firstly, I was unable to import my auto-fill addresses and credit cards from Chrome and I had to manually add them to Firefox. Is it even possible to import addresses and credits into Firefox??

Second, and most importantly, the auto-fill feature in FireFox does not work. Contrary to other entries in this forum, the credit card field will show me the dropdown of options and fill - but names and address fields will not. The feature is turned on in settings (as shown in attached) and I even restarted my computer. How can I get these fields to auto-fill?

I am running FireFox for Windows 10, v96.0.2 (64 bit) and I'm located in the US.

I have noticed that some business websites do not work correctly with Firefox. Here are a few ; Lowes Home Improvement, NJ Covid vaccine, Labcorp, Picattiny Federal Credit Union, Clover Health, Walmart.

Could this be due the fact the fact that according java FF does not support the technology behind java?

In the case of Walmart, I was having a problem placing an order and asked for help, the email response did not mention FF.

Most of these website deal with confidential information.

I'm on a Windows 10 Pro PC. Actually, Firefox was working fine until today. My Firefox is up to date as of right now. I have an account with AtesMedia. I used to log in and I'd access a menu with the current time and content available "EN DIRECTO" live.

Today, when I entered, the time showing on the menu in the Firefox browser did not correspond to my Windows time setting. I tried the same access from Chrome and it has the right time setting. I can therefore easily access whatever content I select and click on.

In Firefox the time is way off by six hours (the time difference between Spain where the service content originates and my time in the U.S.). Again, the computer time is correct in the Windows settings, as I can confirm by simply flipping over to Chrome and not getting this problem.

Doing some searching, I found suggestions to go to about:config, finding the privacy.resistFingerprinting setting and make sure it is set to false. I did that, closed Firefox, restarted it, checked to see that my change persisted (it did). I then re-started a new session of the AtresPlayer, where I had to log in again to my Premium account. But, the problem was not fixed.

I still get the wrong time in Firefox. If I manually advance on the timeline by six hours, of course there are different program contents available. I can then select one and request either to continue live or begin the program from its initial start time. Either way, it works, but it is an enormous pain to go through that I didn't have to do before in Firefox.

Something has gone awry and I don't know what it is or how to fix it. Can anyone please help? Please don't tell me to set privacy.resistFingerprinting = false -- I have already done that and it doesn't work. I even removed it completely and did it again from scratch. I have shut down Firefox. As I mentioned, I restarted it to make sure that my setting went into effect and wasn't cancelled on shutting down and restarting again.

I installed Firefox at work and set my personal email address as secondary to my business address. Well, I liked Firefox so much that I decided to use it at work and at home - and I removed my personal email from my business account.

Unfortunately Firefox is still recognizing my personal email as the secondary address for my business account and I am completely incapable of making a new account. My bookmarks and saved passwords are all different between home and work. I NEED two individual accounts, just like how I was using my browsers with Chrome.

How can I convince Firefox that my personal email is free and available so that I can make a new account with it??

Thank you for your help!

When I find-out still being listed, I go back and find only that part remaining checked, I cannot uncheck it, unless I check >>>>>Provide search engines<<<<<. If I leave it like that, nothing changes. If also un-check >>>>>Provide search engines<<<<<, nothing at all is checked, still I cannot get >>>>>Show search suggestion ahead of browsing history in address bar history<<<<< to stay un-checked.

I tried to find a save changes button, but cannot. I assume changes are saved automatically, considering all the rest of the changes are as they should be.

Okay, so...hopefully somebody here can help me from going, "Mhhmmm! Grrrrrrr!" every time I wanna search something.

    So here's what's up...

I go to my home page, bing.com. I type in a search, and because it pertains to the issue at hand, lets suppose the search was adult oriented, or something that would make you want to change the search safety settings from its default of 'Moderate' to 'Off', as you want it to be. Cool. Great. Sweet, its off, now I can continue.....Buuuuut, no! Nope. See,...{sigh}.....okay, so lets back up a few steps and right now we're at the moment when we had switched 'Moderate' to 'Off'. Okay! So,....now lets say that you want to filter down your search results. So, we navigate over to the right-hand side of the page, we click 'Filter', we select our filter, the pag loads, annnnnd AHHHHHH DAMMIT TO HELL!! It's back set to 'Moderate'. And it will continue to do this when for whatever reason the page needs to reload. Its driving me.......{sigh & steps back}....Ooohh, okay, well.....suffice to say, the issue needs resolving. Like,....NOW! Please.  :-D It almost slipped my mind, but, for the sake of knowing what kind of suggestions you may give,.... Let me just throw out there that I am no 'computer noob'. The last time I went to buy a new desktop computer, I wasn't a member of Camp Cow! What I'm tryin' to say is, I'm no programmer, but I'm quite 'puter knowledgeable. I remember as a kid, getting bored and walking into the den where my dad (former IBM guy) was sitting there, mumbling outloud to himself, "...Wha...? Whaddaya mean, 'Bad command or file name? ...Doesn't make any sense...". I sat down to watch him try & fix the computer, I told 'em I was bored, he said, "Bored, huh? Yeah,....that'll happen sometimes." Gets up from his chair, plants his hand on the backrest, stands up and does this sorta,...two and a half step, 'walk' across the room to the closet, which is like, two feet from me.... Still with his one hand on the chair's back rest, with the other, he reaches up into the closet to the little book shelf in there, grabs a book I've seen him use a number of times before, takes it down, half pulls * half 'back steps' back into his chair, playfully flings his book holding hand toward me. It lands in my lap with a sh-mack! of my pants, and my dad being completely serious, he's not joking in the least says to me, "Here. Read this. It's good to know." The infamous book? The user's manual for MS-DOS 5. ...Hmm,...it might of been 6.2. My dad was teaching me DOS commands when I was 8. Heh!.... I'm sorry, that went a bit longer than I had imagined. Well, I guess I'll chalk it up to, 'Taking the opportunity to tell a 'I remember when' story about my dad. He died last year. November 8th. He was 86. Best dad you could ever know.

 Hey thank you in advance, if you're able to help.  Thanks & take care!

Firefox will now only up with a window about one-third the size of my monitor. I cannot find any way to change it back to filling the entire screen upon opening. I don't mean the full screen setting, just filling it top to bottom and side to side. If I hover over screen size icon, I get numerous options, but none allowing me to select wide screen.

When Firefox 96.0.2 was installed on my Windows 10 computer my bookmarks tab went from white to black. The only way that I was able to get the white back was to change my Firefox Persona.

I would like to be able to use my previous Firefox Persona but until a fix is produced I have to use a Persona which is not my preferred choice.

This is both a request for help and information to those looking for a short term fix.
