2 step verification
My bank and gmail require 2 step verification with option to skip next time. I continue to get same request but not if I use MIcrosoft Edge browser. How can I correct this so can continue to use Firefox. If I cannot correct this, will be forced to use another browser.
Thank you for your reply. I followed your instructions but it didn't resolve my problem. I then rreread your cojmments and I think I changed the cookies setting and my problem went away.Read this answer in context 👍 0

You may be in Private Browsing mode or told Firefox not to remember.
Type about:preferences#privacy<enter> in the address box. The button next to History, select Use Custom Settings.
Turn off Always Use Private Browsing Mode Turn on Remember My Browsing And Download History At the bottom of the page, turn on Clear History When Firefox Closes. At the far right, press the Settings button. Turn on ONLY Cache and Form And Search History leaving the others off.
Macs: Make sure you install Firefox properly and that you do not run Firefox from within the DMG (Disk Images) file. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-download-and-install-firefox-mac
There is a change in Firefox 96 related to cookies and insecure sites.
- /questions/1363998 blocked 3rd party cookies
As a workaround for now you can modify this pref on the about:config page to revert this change.
- about:config => network.cookie.sameSite.laxByDefault = false
You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can accept the warning and click "I accept the risk!" to continue.
