Hi everyone,

I set up my Firefox for Android to delete cookies and cache when I click on "Close".

I was happy with it but I realized several months ago than websites as leboncoin.fr, amazon.fr, decathlon.fr (yes i'm french), didn't keep me loged in but remember what I had looked for and where I was. This problem is permanent.

I don't have this problem with Firefox for Windows.

So it seems something is nor cleared from the app when I close it.

Thank you very much for your help !

Hi Can someone please tell me what happens if I have third-party cookies blocked by default, but I click 'accept all'? Will that override the default and allow the site to store the cookies on my device, or will Firefox continue to block the third-party cookies? I ask because some sites (Galvanize, for example) won't allow you to see the page without clicking the 'accept' button, but I don't want the big tech boys spying on me! Thanks for your help.

Open a website via an installed link on home screen -> History not saved

My favourite weather app is not working on my phone, but they also have a website, so I decided to use the 'install' option from the menu to install a direct link to the website.

When I use this website in Firefox, the first question I get is my location. When I open the website again this is not asked again.

But when I use the installed link on the homescreen it ask's my location every time, like this is not saved or something like that, a bit the same as 'ingognito mode'.

Is there a possibility that when I used the installed link on my homescreen that it save's my location (history) so that it not asked every time I open it ?
