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.

Cookies don't clear bug while tab still open

The Delete Browsing Data option, manually or by the quit button, doesn't clear cookies if the tab is still open.

Simple example: go to youtube.com, search for anything, e.g. "asmr". In the same tab, go to a new site, e g. google.com. Then go to settings and Delete Browsing Data, with all selected but downloads. Now, all tabs are closed, so in a new tab go to youtube.com, and click in the search and the previous search, e.g. "asmr", shows up in a droplist.

This droplist behavior shouldn't occur when all data is cleared. This behavior doesn't occur if the tab is closed before Delete Browsing History is selected.

No way to add exceptions to cookie blocking

I found the hidden page where you can "manage" cookie exception rules, but there's no way to add rules, or remove them, presumably, if you found a way to hack them in. … (read more)

How to always allow cookies on android?

I have searched in vain to find a way to keep cookies for a certain site on my android. Everything I see says to go to privacy in settings, but that doesn't exist on my phone's browser.

It's really irritating to have the site always send me an email, warning me that I have logged in, as well as insisting on texting me a code. Telling it to recognize my device does nothing if the cookies are deleted. (And, no, I'm not going to set it to always save all cookies when I choose "quit" on the browser.)

Please add this ability, Firefox! My computer browser has had the ability for years and years.
