I am very keen to avoid cookies being stored on my computer and have checked the box that says "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed". I have no "Exceptions". I also have "Strict" tracking protection - again, with no Exceptions. Yet when I open a particular bookmarked website (www.bikemap.net), Firefox displays the page showing the bike route from my street to my friend's house that I looked at weeks ago. This even happens when I open the site in a New Private Window. I am baffled as to why this is happening and what I need to do to stop it. Can you help, please? Thanks.

I haven't been able to login to my PayPal account for a week now despite using correct email address and and password. I cleared my cache and cookies from my Firefox 45.0 browser as suggested on this site http://www.wikihow.com/Clear-Cookies-and-Cache-in-Firefox

But after doing that I still can't login to my PayPal account.

Would somebody please help me? Thanka in advance

Like Firefox "knows" subject lines I emailed in my online yahoomail, and then offers dropdown choices whenever I enter subject headers in forums.

For example, I might ask something on Gardenweb beginning with "A" such as, say: Apple growing

I then might see these choices dropping down, immediately upon entering "A" Attn: dear bro anti-cookie strategies Attn: Chad re: our recent finance discussion

This has been going on for ages, but never got around to asking: What's this all about? and what are these dropdowns called?

It reminds me of google dropdowns, but even more personal.

On a tangent (speak of way worse privacy intrusion) what's most nauseating, is yahoo making mandatory the entry of mobile numbers for every new email signup. It just came to my attention now, due to RL distractions. Why does everything always get complicatedly worse, instead of remaining simple & utilitarian? Not to mention extreme EMFs (i'm electrosensitive, so that's a sensitive issue for me)

I typically run with cookies disabled (do not allow web sites to store cookies). I then manually allow selected sites to do so.

I recently tried to add a site to the exception list only to discover that many of my settings have been changed and all of my exceptions have been deleted.

I did not do this intentionally. The only thing I can think of is I allowed FF to upgrade to 36.0. I think this was a few weeks ago.

How can I get the cookie exception list back? There were at least 100, maybe a lot more. I have no way of knowing which ones they all were.

How can I prevent this from happening again?

If you look at the attached image you can easily see what my problem is. Because I can't make exceptions for various websites those websites will remain broken unless I change the Global settings for cookies... which makes the Exceptions - Content Blocking UI redundant.

Oh I guess I should throw in a question. Is there a way to manually add websites to the exception list? Through some convoluted user unfriendly configuration file or some such?

In my Cookies and Site Data, under "last used" it says there's a whole bunch of cookies being accessed every time I launch Firefox. Even if I launch Firefox with no open tabs, cookies are still being accessed when I launch.

I find this deeply disturbing! Cookies surely should not be able to activate until you start visiting websites?

Can anyone please explain how and why are these cookies being accessed?

I have saved flashes such as animations and even games to my computer so I could always enjoy them, online and offline. However recently I cannot open any of them, it just takes me to the home page and when I try to download them, it does so instantly instead of the brief 15 secs it normally takes and still doesn't open. Flashes work fine on the sites, and it opens in Internet Explorer. I did clear my history so I wonder if I did something to the cookies.

It is possible to clear all the cookies from a website in Firefox: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/clear-cookies-and-site-data-firefox In my case, I would like to clear only authentication cookies (to be automatically disconnected when I close Firefox) but I want to keep the other cookies about my preferences. However, I can select on which websites I want to clear my cookies but I can't select which ones.

Is there a way to select the list of cookies I want to keep/clear for each websites?

Thanks.

within a flash click the opposite mouse button and you may change some Adobe flash settings like allowing camera and microphone access.

but once you've done that Adobe dumps a kind of version checker on your system.

you'll see that after the next boot, when a big standalone window with 'An update to your Adobe Flash Player is available" mid screen occurs subject you player is not the latest.

where is this hecking cookie or whatever stored - can't find it in the registry nor within Docs & Settings or elsewhere.

in my opinion a good role model for all spywarer and really disgraceful for such a big company.

Recently I find that the Google cookie notice keeps coming back. Cookies are enabled, although my settings are that these and history are deleted on closing Firefox.

This means I have to click the dismissal notice once in a new browsing session, which is OK, but am annoyed with the constant reappearance during the session.

I have the latest version of Firefox, and have tried reinstalling it to no avail.

Curiously there is no such problem with IE8, but I prefer Firefox for various reasons.

I have Windows XP.

Until the the most recent upgrade(s), Firefox would automatically save my log in information for my home page. It no longer does. When I start Firefox now, I have to click Sign In, choose my saved password (from Roboform), and I am logged in.

Sometimes I can close Firefox, reopen it and I am still logged in. Most of the time when I close Firefox and reopen it, I have to sign in again. I have the same settings in the current version as I had previously but still have issues.

I have tried all the standard 'stuff' (making sure passwords are saved, etc.) but nothing changes. I have uninstalled Firefox and started 'from scratch,' but it hasn't helped. I'm baffled.

B.T.W. if I use Internet Explorer, my Sign In settings are saved. I want to use Firefox but signing in every time is a pain.

Thanks.

Hallo, I want to use 2FA with amazon.de. When I close firefox I will all cookies be deleted. I always must enter the twofactauth, amazon doen't remember my PC, I think because I delete the cookies.

Now my questions: 1.) Is it right, that a 2FA company remeber the PC in a cookie? 2.) How can I prevent only these cookies from being deleted? I do not want to allow all cookies.

For about a month, I've had an intermittent problem with FF dumping the list of cookie exceptions each time the browser closes. I originally had a very lengthy list of exceptions and noticed a few weeks ago that it was now completely blank.

After I discovered the problem, I checked to make sure I do NOT have "site preferences" checked on the options to clear FF's history on close. I also tried deleting the prefs.js file, thinking it might have become corrupt.

I had thought the problem had resolved itself -- although I was never able to recover my original list of exceptions, but for the last week or so, the exceptions did not change when I closed. However, after FF upgraded yesterday to 23.0.1, the exceptions list cleared itself again. Now, each time I close the browser, it dumps the list again.

Any suggestions? I have a lengthy list of sites I would rather not allow to use cookies and and I'm getting pretty frustrated at having to recreate it over and over.
