How to set coockie rules globaly in Firefox - so that I don't get asked for every individual website?

Hi, I can't find a way to set cookie rules globally that get automatically sent to websites I visit the first time. So my problem is I have to visit a lot of sites for research and every time get distracted by a cookie pop up that I have to accept or lose a lot of screen space. I have Asperger and was wondering, how to set in Firefox what kind of cookies I'm fine with and what don't, basically an API or standard or how you call it, browsers can communicate to cookie managing tools of websites automatically what cookies I want to set and what don't. Also I have some Wordpress websites, so I want to know if Firefos planes to provide a PlugIn for site owners so such automatic cookie settings can also work on my website. Maybe some sort of if-else states that the user of the browser can set, for example:

If website accepts that no cookie is needed - allow no cookies.

If Facebook Like Button is required of website - don't allow and inform me to search information on a competitor sites, via a Firefox pop up

If website allows to save my settings (like dark mode, layout option, ... - always allow

The problem with no automatic Browser wide solution is, in the heat of a work day, i just accept everything because I have no time to go in for every website and pick what cookies I want, and what don't.

Also I am a Designer not a Developer so I can't create such a prototype by myself, even if it would be beneficial for everybody.

What can I do, to get such a Feature, or does it already exist and if how is the API called so that I know how to search for if.

Thank you guys for this great Browser and have a great day

I rebooted my computer after it crashed, due to what appeared to be a hard drive error (at first when I restarted the computer I got the message, "Default Boot Device Missing or Boot Failed)". Once I managed to get the PC started again I opened Firefox and found out that all of my saved passwords were gone as well as nearly all of my browsing history, which goes back over a year. Strangely enough, not everything is deleted - there are still several webpages that I visited in the past that still show up in the browser history, especially from the last few months. Not only that, but when I scroll through list of web results, webpages that I previously visited are still highlighted in purple, even though many of them do not show up in the much reduced browser history. Does this mean that the remainder of the browsing history is still somewhere? The Firefox profile is the same one as before the crash.

Thank you!

Hello,

one of my Auth cookie is deleted after new browser's tab is opened, when "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" feature is enabled. This issue is present only with one particular site so it is most likely caused by some error on that site's end. But I would like to ask if there is a chance the "Delete cookies and ..." feature can affect/delete cookies when new tab is opened (without closing Firefox browser).

Thank you in advance.

Under "Cookies and Site Data," "Clear Data" also removes the exceptions to "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed." That's a contradiction, and basically it becomes a waste of time to enter the exceptions. That's what exceptions are -- the rule "exepts" them. It would be nice if Firefox could fix this (unless there is already a work-around for it). FWIW. Thanks.

"History -> Clear recent history" followed by "Forget -> 24 hours" often still leaves a google cookie in the browser.

I use the above combo several times a day. Yet, after I do so, if I open up "Tools -> Privacy and Security -> Manage Data," it is not unusual to see a google cookie that is still there. That does not happen, though, if I just use "clear data." So that seems to become an extra step necessary to closing an re-opening the browser. What is it about google that its cookie fails to be removed so often?

Once every week it seems Firefox forgets im logged in and kicks me out from every site.

I can close Firefox and turn off computer and im still logged in on Youtube on startup, but some time during week it seems to drop the logged in state and i have to redo it on multiple sites.

Im starting to wonder if it has something to do with my Phone visiting Youtube on same account that screws it up. It seems to happen when i disappear from PC for some hours and comes back. In that time ive usually streamed Youtube content on Chromecast.

Ive had this happen meanwhile i was logged in on Youtube with the tab open. Once i refreshed i was logged out. Ive cleared cookies/cache to test if that was the issue but that didnt fix it. Other than that clearing cookies is disabled and has been so at all times.

This problem has been going on for a few months.

I don't know if this is an issue with cookies or with something else, but it's driving me to use Edge to access my email. Site is email.godaddy.com

Many sites now require two-factor authentication. The second factor is often in email. It is dysfunctional for me to keep using Firefox since I can't login to email.godaddy.com. I can login to it using MS Edge, but switching back and forth between two browsers repeatedly is not something I can do. Firefox has been my go-to browser for everything for a long, long time.

What things can I try to fix this?

Here's some of my FF settings: Privacy & Security

 Browser Privacy
   Enhanced Tracking Protection - No exceptions
   Custom select (Not Standard or strict)
     Choose which trackers and scripts to block
       Checked: 
           cookies (all 3rd-party cookes), 
           tracking content (in all windows), 
           cryptominers, 
           fingerprinters
      Send websites a "Do Not Track" signal - Always
    Cookies and Site Data
    I might be in "permanent private browsing mode" because this box is check
    AND greyed out:
        Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed (check, greyed out)
    Logins and Passwords
    Unchecked: Ask to save logins and passwords for websites
    Unchecked: Use a Primary Password
    Forms and Autofill: Checked: Autofill addresses
    History:
       will Use custom settings for history
       Checked: Always use private browsing mode

I turned off all 3 add-ons (HTTPS every, Privacy Badger, Dark Reader) but that didn't help anything.

Firefox 81.0 64-bit Operating System: Windows 10

Please help? I have used Firefox for more than a decade. It is too unreasonable to have to login to email in the Edge browser, get the "code" or whatever, and then switch back to Firefox to login to more secure sites. Switching back and forth repeatedly confuses me and is too dysfunctional for me. I need to resolve this somehow.

Thank you!

The problem is that every time I try to sign in my account I see this message: "This account is not active. Please contact an administrator if you believe this is an error. " This message is looks like mozilla's prank, because someone needs to sign in first to get help! As I try to get help, "support mozilla" is drive me to an endless loop in Mozilla.org.

After several minutes (I think about 15minutes) I don't know why and how but I'm in! This is happened every time I try to sign in my account!

Why is so much time consuming and frustrating the way to sign in? What it means "This account is not active." and why don't given a reason why this happens or/and a way to fix? Why I can't just type the UN/Pass to sign in?

Thanks in advance and sorry for my english.
