I want to manage cookies on android, but all I can do is delete all the ones I have or keep them all. I want to delete cookies by site, but I can't find an option for this.

Add-on cookie managers don't work on android - including on android beta.

How can I manage cookies, and other local storage settings by website or even individual cookies?

Yes, I used my favorite search engine for this a thousand times...

"places.history.enabled" doesn't seem to do it, I gave "browser.history.maxStateObjectSize" = 1 a try to no avail, "browser.urlbar.autocomplete.enabled" doesn't do what the name promises...

So, how do I avoid the history of visited URLs to be stored when using Firefox on Android? (I'm aware that deleting on exit might do the trick, but who explicitly exits their browser on mobile?!?) Has this feature been intentionally removed, as I see old screenshots with an explicit option?

I have set a master password on Android.

When I start Firefox, I will be queried for the master password, but afterwards never again until the app gets closed. In this way, the master password offers no protection – anyone I lend my phone to could freely browse my passwords in practice.

This contrasts with Firefox for Windows, Firefox for iOS, and all versions of Chrome, where a password is required either before viewing the password list at all (best) or at least before revealing the password (acceptable).

With Android, the masterpassword is requested on startup, when it isn't really needed yet, but not, when it would actually provide protection.

Is there any way to get a behavior more in sync with other devices?
