The Preferences page has been rearranged, so there are at least two relevant sections.

Default All Cookies to Session-only

The setting to dump cookies automatically at the end of your regular session is now here:

  • Mac: "3-bar" menu button (or Firefox menu) > Preferences
  • Windows: "3-bar" menu button (or Tools menu) > Options
  • Linux: "3-bar" menu button (or Edit menu) > Preferences
  • Any system: type or paste about:preferences into the address bar and press Enter/Return to load it

In the left column, click Privacy & Security, and on the right side, scroll down to the Cookies and Site Data section.

The checkbox for "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" works as follows:

(A) If the box is NOT checked, then Firefox lets sites specify how long Firefox will retain their cookies. (Like the old "Keep until: they expire")

(B) If the box IS checked, then Firefox shortens the site's preferred expiration time to the end of the current session. (Like the old "Keep until: Firefox is closed") You can let sites store persistent cookies by creating an exception using the Manage Permissions button. Format note, include the protocol, for example:

Exceptions are only needed if you want to stay logged in to a site.

Turn off or Adjust the Clear History Feature

Firefox also can delete all cookies -- disregarding exceptions -- using the feature to Clear history when Firefox closes. If you want to keep some cookies, do not use this feature.

To check on this, scroll down to the History section

Select:

"Firefox will: Use custom settings for history"

If you have a check mark for "Clear history when Firefox closes" then either:

  • Uncheck this option to preserve your cookies and other history
  • Click the Settings button to the right of this line and uncheck the box for Cookies

Can you get it to work the way you want?

I suggest also to uncheck "Site preference" in "Clear history when Firefox closes">Settings, so your exceptions for allowed sites are not cleared when Firefox closes.
