Why Google can log me in on all of their websites even with third cookies turned off?

I’ve been using firefox for a long time. I can’t enumerate all the great things this software brings. I care about privacy, and there is a particular thing I love about firefox: it is how it let me have a control over the web that appear in my little window. So, if a website doesn’t care about privacy, I can apply it myself, by tweaking it thanks to this highly configurable, privacy-caring software. There has been tons of issues and debates over the years, and it is perfectly normal. FF guys are doing a great job to improve the software and I can’t thank them enough for that.

However, among all these little annoyance, something truly disturbs me. Back in the days, I remember struggling with privacy windows. If I opened multiple private windows, why the websites still can recognized me? Until I understood privacy windows are a SINGLE other profile (erased at startup), which, of course, share the same local space. Why is it called private windows? It isn’t. Not at all. It is the same thing as opening a different browser next to firefox, but doesn’t improve my privacy more than standard windows, especially for a user like me, used to remove all private datas once in a while. Call it “side profile”, make a different colored windows, I don’t know, but it has the wrong name: it’s not true “private windows” from a web perspective, and it bother me because I still think it is a trick, not understandable by common users.

Then, a few months ago, I’ve been really annoyed several times: when I log in to my gmail account, I’m automatically logged in to youtube. I don’t have a youtube account. Google made one for me. Everytime I discovered google was watching me watching videos, I felt betrayed. Of course, this in particular is not your problem. But I trusted my favorite web browser to defend me against this forced mercantile attempt to bargain with my life. I tried several plugins. Google is smarter. I used the “cookie exception” blacklist to remove youtube.com. It works but the list is destroyed everytime I clear local datas or update the browser. So, I set “Accept Third Party Cookies” to never. It’s drastic. And, above all, it doesn’t work with google! As if there was a king of the internet. I’m stunned... Somehow, it still succeed to share cookies between different domain names. Am I the only who thinks this is a giant security hole? Unless there is an internal whitelist somewhere...


TL;DR =======

I don’t want SSO. I don’t want to exchange parts of my life to have a little more convenient web. I just try to keep control and this time I have the feeling I’m doomed.

How google can gather cookies from its domains, with third party cookies turned off? Is that a bug? Is it because I’m doing something wrong? How come I make great efforts to protect my privacy, and my firefox, the most privacy caring browser out there, fails me on this specific point? How can I disable this behavior once and for all?

Sorry if it’s long, but I also think it’s needed for you to have my feedback, because I know some people don’t understand why it’s important to me. Thanks for your help.

Black screen - Flawed firefox - DISABLED hardware acceleration!

Hello all,

FYI - I am on a gaming rig/machine with 16GB ram and one of best GPUs. I'm on Win 7 SP1 ( dont ask me to upgrade to win 10 pls!) and my firefox is latest version.

For umpteenth times in last few months, I kept getting problems with firefox especially black or white screen or sometimes nothing on firefox (see screenshots).

I have disabled hardware acceleration for last 3 months and the problem persists.

I have created new profiles for few times and the problems still persists.

It was a last straw when the firefox is cleverly showing something on my option page of Firefox....by blanking it! WOW!, Genius programmers of Firefox. Old option version is more reliable than this new option version for sure.

It seems that it is not due to corrupted profiles nor corrupted GPU of mine (it has got latest stable version).

It seems that the firefox architecture is poorly designed or what? Shall I downgrade Firefox then? I am getting fed up to see black screens repeatedly every few hours which I forced-shutdown firefox via task manager and the firefox then worked properly after that (of course I launched it after force-shutdown it).

Someone said that firefox approaches to websites by loading "top to bottom" method, code-wise? Like some images or contents floating on the page as loaded by firefox? isn't that fundamentally rubbish method? You suppose to load the webpages from the bottom to top, not the other way.

I am tempted to switch back to IE since it never have any graphic problem unlike firefox. Speaking of other browsers - I have tried several browsers like Opera, Google and so on and none of those have problems unlike this firefox!

It seems that Firefox is not testing its coding too well for graphic purpose, or Firefox's QA channel is failed in graphic department?

Rant aside - anyone has got REAL solution to get rid of this persistent graphic problem with firefox? Or can I downgrade firefox???

Thanks a lot! FED UP loyalist firefox

I switched from using a complete theme to just a regular theme (the complete one is no longer supported with the 40.0.2 update). When I opened a private window I am presented with the default Firefox theme with no way to change to any of the other themes I attempt to apply. Is there something I'm missing or was this a change that occurred through the numerous updates to Firefox while I was still using the complete theme? I'd like to use the theme in both normal and private windows is this possible?

I unfortunately had the experience to have my left Shift key stuck when I reopened my browser. It gave me the option to 'refresh or reset' and not ever seeing this before I chose 'reset' which got rid of all my addon's and features.

Since that it mistakenly reset my browser I am now stuck in what seems like an eternal proverbial safe mode. I cannot download any files nor can I access any website which requires me to update data to my browser (this includes browser based games). Not only that any time I visit the Firefox support, the page is strictly text-only and makes trying to solve my problem ever so difficult (as it all just jumbles things together repeating itself numerous times.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled the browser with no success in being able to access the net short of just text pages. This is an extreme frustration and would greatly appreciate any help in restoring my browser back to its wonderful self where I can browse with my favorite browser rather than using Microsoft Edge (like I am having to use right now to post this).

Many thanks in advance.

Hello,

Since a few days I cannot start Firefox. The process starts, but hangs with a fixed memory space and zero cpu usage, and the main window simply does not start. No crash report is created. Killing the process and try again is the only option.

I tried starting Firefox as Administrator, which does work (but is hardly recommended from a security perspective), and so does starting Firefox when Windows is in Safe Mode. Firefox also starts when the TrendMicro OfficeScan processes are stopped, but this is hardly a solution in a business environment, being admin on my machine is already a special case.

Periodically, in rare events, Firefox starts, but the next time the issue is back.

After trying several troubleshooting procedures, I have tried performing a clean install, to no avail: - Delete Mozilla folders from App Data (both Roaming and Local) - Uninstall Firefox - Delete possibly remaining Mozilla Firefox folder in Program Files (x86) - Run CCleaner - Restart - Re-install

Currently I'm looking into a procedure that would help me determine with certainty if OfficeScan is indeed guilty, and try to prove it to my IT service in order to get them to escalate to TrendMicro. Of course, if OfficeScan is not guilty, finding a solution would be perfect, too...

System information: - Windows 7 Enterprise SP1 - TrendMicro OfficeScan - Firefox latest release, 40.0.2 at the moment, from stub installer.

When I accessed my Contacts on Outlook.com (people/live.com) my contacts names are intact, but all the phone, mobile and work numbers, company name, notes and other information are missing from all of my contacts! The only information showing on individual contacts are their name at the top, the email and snail mail addy. I have over 500 contacts and most have other information besides just their names, email and postal address. When I select a contact that has multiple fields of information, such as phone, work, company, notes, ect. the field names show up but there is no data in those fields. Contacts where I've only input an email addy, no other field names show up.

When downloading my contact information from Outlook.com into excel file, all information appears in the excel file. When accessing my contacts on Outlook.com through IE and Chrome all the information shows up. My contact information syncs to my android phone and all information is intact. So it seems to be a communication problem with Firefox.

I have tried signing out of my Outlook.com account in all browsers, dumping all history and cache, trying different proxy settings under Firefox options (advance/ settings) with no resolution to the problem. This problem started Wed. or Thursday (8/14/15) and I am using Windows 8.1

I got a new windows10 laptop recently, installed firefox, and now firefox is saying "This Connection is Untrusted" with many sites, even the searchbar. I've noticed that if i google something straight from the searchbar it'll tell me "untrusted connection"; however if i were to remove the s from "https" then i'll be able to get to the site. Example: i googled 'hello', the address that turned up untrusted connection was "https://www.google.com/search?q=hello&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8", upon removing the s, i could get to the site, the site address became "https://www.google.com.sg/search?q=hello&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&safe=active&gws_rd=cr,ssl&ei=5u3TVevvNsnk0gSEiZ7QDg&safe=active". Yes, my date and time is set correctly. I am using AVG antivirus on Asus Zenbook. I've tried many solutions in the many forums including this support forum. Please help, it's really annoying me.

Here's the full details of "untrusted connection":

You have asked Firefox to connect securely to www.youtube.com, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure.

Normally, when you try to connect securely, sites will present trusted identification to prove that you are going to the right place. However, this site's identity can't be verified. What Should I Do?

If you usually connect to this site without problems, this error could mean that someone is trying to impersonate the site, and you shouldn't continue.

This site uses HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) to specify that Firefox only connect to it securely. As a result, it is not possible to add an exception for this certificate."

Hi folks!

I spent over a half hour just getting registered to post here!!!

Why isn't there a link here:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/users/auth

... along the lines of "Don't have an account? Create one!" that takes me to the account creation process? Seems like a no-brainer to me. Instead I have to go through "ask a question" and step after step after step to get to what I already know - that I've found (or confirmed) a bug in version 40?

I couldn't find my way here via google, nor via the inhouse search form. Just back, over and over, to a page titled "Log in / Register" that DOESN'T LET ME REGISTER.

This isn't a question. I'm just pointing out to whoever might be listening that my user experience hasn't been good tonight. I mean, I'm trying to help, and like with so many other things about Firefox, the process of posting a question is so over-engineered that you're making it almost impossible for me not to switch to another browser (the only thing stopping me is that they're ALL over-engineered).

Thanks / sorry. I'd show you an image of the broken register page that isn't a registration page except - surprise - I can't upload a 6M png.
