Why do I need to redo my ADP settings every time I load FF?

Postáilte

Whenever I start or re-start my computer and then start FF, the ADP settings I had have been deleted and must be redone. That was not the case previously, but I can't pinpoint a time when it changed. I believe it's been several months.

Extensions store their data in IndebdDB and a special UUID that is stored in a pref (extensions.webextensions.uuids) in prefs.js is used to link the extension to this storage. So if you lose data then it is possible that you have a problem with the preferences.

If you use any cleanup software then make sure they leave the Firefox profile folder alone and do not touch any files.

Hi tmarts, Some sites save your preferences as cookies or in site data. Do you have Firefox set to: Delete Cookies And Site Data When Firefox Is Closed?

There is a method to delete some information while saving other under History on the Privacy & Security page in Options. See the screenshots.

Hi again tmarts, I know that this might be a little confusing so, I wanted to mention that the History custom settings work in conjunction with the Delete Cookies And Site Data When Firefox Is Closed setting.

Not that I know of. Besides, in MS Edge, the ADP settings are never deleted.

What about Site Data? Is that being cleared?

I'm having a similar issue with a much less important site. Leave this thread open. Maybe one of our Moderators have some suggestions.

You're not the only one. I don't know either. It's supposed to be ABP - Ad Block Plus.

Hello tmarts,

ADP does exist though : https://www.adp.com

Back to the real problem (ABP) :

Do you get a filter error message at startup ?

If so, see :
