As captured in the long thread "What's the difference between ALLOW and ALLOW for a SESSION?”, with a lot of handholding from jscher2000, I managed to set custom choices for privacy and security the way I wanted on my mac computer (blocking all cookies in all windows, with exceptions saved for ALLOW, ALLOW for SESSION and some for BLOCK). To accomplish this, required enabling deletion of cookies when Firefox closes.

My assumption based on information I got in the above mentioned thread, was that even when deletion of cookies is checked for when Firefox is closed, cookies for websites identified as exceptions with ALLOWED, are not deleted.

However, this is not what happens. A specific example is tripcheck.com, which stores custom itineraries for cameras in cookies. I setup quite a few of these custom itineraries and saved them and they were OK until I closed Firefox, when they were deleted, as the cookie was deleted. This website is setup as ALLOW in the Exceptions list.

As explained in the above mentioned thread:

"(2) Scenario Two

[X] Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed (checked)

Firefox shortens cookie expiration to session only unless the site has an ALLOW permission in the exceptions list. “.

I am more confused than ever, the settings do not appear to be working the way they are meant to work, not only for session cookies but also for what should be "permanent".

Am I doing something incorrectly or am I misunderstanding how setting should work?

If cookies of websites setup for ALLOW are deleted when Firefox is closed, the setting is defeating what I am trying to accomplish: saving cookies for websites that I use and save data in cookies (such as recognizing the computer, what’s needed for 2 step authentication, etc.).

Thanks.

I'm using Firefox 84.0.2 on Ubuntu 18.04. It has suddenly stopped being able to load Google Calendar. It shows the banner for Google Calendar but no content, and the progress bar shows it continually trying to load. Even after several minutes there is no time-out. The problem persists in safe mode. No other Google products (Gmail, Google Drive) show this problem, and the calendar loads normally in Chrome. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hello All,

I was working on a Google Apps Script to convert a Google Form entry into a Google Calendar event. Nothing too crazy so I'm not sure that the JavaScript I'm using would do anything to the browser. I could access Google Calendar just fine this morning and then all of the sudden, my calendar page wouldn't completely load. It loads the upper and left panels but not the actual calendar. There's no error message popups, the loading status just keeps spinning.

I've cleared all cache, closed/reopened the browser, restarted my computer, refreshed Firefox, opened Firefox in Safe Mode, tried a Private Window, uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox. I can access Google Calendar just fine on Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome.

Web Console shows a lot of warnings and an Exception error but I don't see anything that gives me a clear understanding of what the problem is. Halp!!!1!1

It been now the second time that upon opening firefox, it doesn't open the previous session but a new one. It's the second time that I loose ALL my tabs. The "restore previous session" is greyed, I tried the about:sessionrestore but it doesn't give me the possibility to restore the previous session, and on my computer, the sessionstore backup just has the restoresession from today. Is there any way to avoid this?

I have a problem printing my bank statement using Mozilla Firefox. Portions of the statement (in a table format) are completely blacked out. Other portions of the statement which are also in a table format print tine. I do not have the problem when using Microsoft Edge (same desktop) or Safari (iPad) and I am using the same printer for all three browsers. The statement utilizes Acrobat Reader so I first uninstalled and then reinstalled Acrobat Reader. The problem persisted. Clearly, the problem is with Mozilla Firefox. I have taken all the steps suggested in "Fix printing problems in Firefox" to no avail. This included resetting all Firefox printer settings. Since it is my bank statement I cannot send you a copy of the printout. However, I will say that the Mozilla Firefox print preview does not show any portion of the document being blacked out - it only occurs upon printing and only when using Mozilla Firefox.

I use Firefox as my regular browser and Google's GSuite for mail, calendar, and so on. This morning, Google Calendar will not load completely. GMail works fine. The sidebar Calendar in GMail works, but the "standalone" calendar site does not work.

I checked this in a Chrome browser and there is no problem - it all works fine. The problem is only in the Firefox browser.

Is anyone else having this problem or have any suggestions?

Three computers running current version of Firefox. All have a longstanding bookmark for Google Calendar. Starting this morning, when I click on the bookmark, Calendar goes into a "loading" mode and will not load. However, when I open Gmail using the same sign-in I can access the calendar in the right pane of the Gmail page. But when I try to open the calendar in a new tab, the same "loading" issue happens and I can't see a full page calendar. Two computers run on Windows 10, one on Windows 7. All three computers have the same problem which has never happened before. I have tried adjusting Firefox privacy settings on each computer to no avail. I run a Malwarebytes VPN and have tried turning that off, but have the same result. I don't think this is a Google problem because the right pane calendar opens fine when I open Gmail. I also tried this in Microsoft Edge on the two Windows 10 computers and the calendar opens fine. The calendar data also opens fine in third party ios calendar apps. So I'm at a loss about what to try next.

My problem is that I must have accidentally dragged a folder from bookmarks to the bookmarks menu bar. It can't be deleted (option grayed out), can't view properties (grayed out) and even when I attempt to to restore bookmarks from an earlier date it does not correct the issue.

I have restarted the computer.

I have restored bookmarks after deleting them all.

I have attempted to backup bookmarks (before trying to remove them) and no matter what that folder won't budge from the right side of my bookmark menu. I can make it disappear by turning off bookmark menu but that's not useful to me. (Did you know that when you back up bookmarks - firefox puts them into a json extension! Try to restore that file - it's NOT even an option! Rather the options are import from this browser or that one - that's another issue all together so let's set it aside for another time.)

I am totally frustrated because I am almost 100% certain that this done by me in my speedy way, trying to drag a bookmark to the folder rather than hitting the star and putting it in the appropriate folder.

The only thing I haven't done is uninstall this firefox and reinstall it. I am a bit scared to do that. I have been a firefox user early on. How do I save these bookmarks without creating the same issue again? I don't want to go through the entire ordeal only to find out something is corrupted in my profile. What then.

Ideas would be help me a great deal. Please be patient. I am used to doing things on my own but I can follow directions. The only problem I have is that pesky file that won't be dragged, or deleted, or moved in any fashion. Is there a bookmark cloud on mozilla where I can just reinstall my bookmarks, passwords and add-ons without a lot of hassle? I sincerely have done all I know how to do.

Thanks for your help.

Hi; hope all is well in your world!

I have a ProtonMail account. (It works fine, I recommend it!) Had it for years, but have not used it much. Looking into VPN and proton offers one, so trying to find out more, and so am now exploring the proton site quite a bit.

I can log into ProtonMail itself very easily; I get directed to my ProtonMail inbox. Cool so far. But clicking on 'help' takes me to ProtonMail Support, in a new tab. Not so cool, because I'm now not logged in. If I hit the 'LOG IN' button at the top of that page, I can log in (again) very easily. But it takes me back to my ProtonMail inbox! Same problem if I try to log in to the Protonmail Blog.

I've tried everything I can think of. I've checked through all the ProtonMail support articles (that claim they are 'step by step guide to find easily your answer'); I've investigated 'Common Login Problems', and none of the offered solutions apply (I'm not having a problem logging in; I'm having a problem logging in to something other than the inbox.) I've tried disabling browser extensions; checked the settings of Javascript, Session Storage, and Cookies; even tried using a different browser.

I think the answer to this conundrum is to configure Firefox -- just for proton -- so that instead of opening a new tab it opens the content in the same tab. But I've searched Firefox help, and have not been able to discover how to do that.

I fear I am slowly but surely going insane.

Please help!

An update of Firefox today left me with a toolbar with precious acreage devoted to the large, clumsy and unnecessary "Other Bookmarks" tab. I read on this help site the technical solutions, which are way over my head (it is not even remotely clear how to get an "address bar," much less enter software instructions in it!). For the rest of us dummies out there, can someone tell me if it is possible to get rid of this Other Bookmarks button? (I say it is unnecessary because clicking on the very compact right-pointing double arrow-heads always takes one to Other Bookmarks -- no need to waste toolbar space with the actual words!). I have not found any solution to this problem. In my view, it was a bad idea to "add" this feature--it should be removed in future updates!

So, not sure when this issue really started. I would like to continue to use Firefox for this function, so any assistance is greatly appreciated.
