Even though I have removed the cookies for Facebook, the Manage Cookies screen shows a HUGE storage space. FF v99.0 on Mac

almost all are Facebook storage. I'm feeling a little reluctant to delete all site data. If I clear all cookies and site data will that fix the issue? will the issue re-occur?

Oh, Wait! I shut down Firefox after "clear cookies and Site data" then restarted Firefox. That cleared the 17 billion.

do you have any clue why it got to 17 Bil. MB?

Did you try this:


Clear cookies and site data in Firefox https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/clear-cookies-and-site-data-firefox

Yes, I cleared cookies and site data by clicking the padlock next to the site address, and then clicking "clear cookies and site data" Storage still displays 17 Billion MB

Delete browsing, search and download history on Firefox https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/delete-browsing-search-download-history-firefox

Do this as well. And see what it shows. Remember this removes a Login as well.
