Hi Guys

Firefox does not remember logins!I know it is controlled by cookies and I have sought help here a few days ago.

No matter what I do and what I change I cannot get it save logins like to Brisbane Times .com.au which is set for my home page. I can go back and it will save the login but when I close a document or when the BT homepage renews it will not keep my login (Edge does). Every time I log into Twitter I have to log in again. The enhanced tracking is off for this site but no matter what I change I don't seem to be able to get it to remember my logins. I know this is cookie related so just don't seem to be able to get the combination. I have tried to follow all the FF help menues but to no avail. I would appreciate a step by step what to do if that is possible

Hello. I just updated to FF 94 but my confusion pre-dates the update. It would be most helpful to have a clear, concise, non-nerd jargon about how to keeps cookies. I normally delete cookies on domain change. This works for me!

I have a specific domain, a bank, that *now* charges me a fee to log in and check my account: two-step verification. The bank says that if I don't delete their cookies when I log off then I won't be charged a fee the next time I try to log in. Fair enough.

After looking through the Firefox / Mozilla explanations on how to keep cookies, what I read is not clear. Lets start here: many of the explanations show images of the about:config: "Cookies and Site Data. What I see on my screen is not what is presented in the proposed solution. Example: at this page https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1287495 it shows "Manage Permissions". On my screen it says "Manage Exceptions". There is a big difference in understanding between "Permissions" and "Exceptions" and seeing as how I don't know what "Permissions" mean then I'm left with a hole in my understanding of how to proceed. This might sound a minor point to make, but I can not find a clear, up-to-date (FF 93) how to keep selected cookies. So please let me state clearly what I want to know and hopefully a clear, concise answer may appear.

- I want to keep specific cookies, from a specific domain, that were loaded into FF during a session. - The next time I attempt to login to that specific domain, the previously saved (hopefully) cookies will be recognized by the domain and allow me to log in without further charges.

For my purposes the "Cookies and Site Data - Manage Data" function is not relevant. I don't need to make a special election to allow cookies from my bank, nor am I trying to restrict cookies from entering the browser. I simply want to save particular stored cookies for the next attempted login to a specific domain.

Please, and with respect: clear, concise, simple language that is attuned with the visuals / graphics / images of FF 93.

Thank you in advance and wishing you healthy times.

I delete my cookies the end of each session. So when I reload FF and revisit any sites that require cookies I have to click to accept, which is tiresome. Can I set certain trusted sites to automatically recreate cookies? I find the 'manage data' panel very confusing - I'm not sure what I'm blocking and allowing. Please see screen shot of settings.

How to disable First party cookie isolation for one site.

I have an exstention that talks with the site, but it cant talk to it unless I have first party cookie isolation disabled. How can I disable it for one site only?

Also, what is the difference between not having first party cookie isolation and having it on.

Firefox always deletes cookies for some websites when it's restarted. While working in non-private mode I checked, that the setting for removing the cookies on closing is set to off. Then I tried adding some websites to the exception list for this setting, no luck. I made sure that cookies on those websites are persistent, not session only, and they are working in other browsers. I tried disabling the plugins, but it didn't help either. It's somewhat annoying, because now I have to adjust cookie preferences every time I visit my favourite websites. I use "standard" protection settings.

When I go to google.com and do a search the results page has the "tools" button but it does not work. The "people also ask" categories are also broken (they will not expand), and, if I click the "images" filter button to view images associated with my search it either shows no images (or only a few images) and a bunch of blank boxes. I have found that if I hold the shift key and click the reload button everything is back and working properly until the next time I do a google.com search, then it is back to the same odd behavior. So, my assumption here is that either a cookie or some site data is corrupting the results page for my search. Running Firefox 92.0 (64-bit) on a Windows 7 Dell machine and everything was working fine until about two months ago. Also, Chrome does not show the same behavior. BTW. I have also done everything I have found that was recommended to fix Firefox issues with Google search. Run Firefox in private mode, run without plugins, changed themes, created new profile, I even completely uninstalled Firefox and did a clean install all with the same results. Any help is appreciated. It is almost got me ready to move back to Chrome.

I know that clearing browser cookie regularly is a good practice, but I am a bit curious if clearing out those session cookies is the same as if you log out of all the accounts manually.

Because logging out manually will make both local and server side session cookies invalid, thus log out safely.

Meanwhile clearing browser cookies only delete local side session cookie, while the session cookie on the server remains. Which means the session is still valid.

So do I clear browser cookies or log out manually if I want to log out of all accounts?

Hi,

I'm developping a custom tool in order to automatically clean my cookies from several websites. For example, I would like to automatically remove cookies from twitter.com every time I launch my tool. I'm under Win10x64, firefox v89, tool developped in python.

To do this, once firefox is closed, my tool go in my profile folder, access to cookies.sqlite and delete row associated to twitter.com

-> DELETE from moz_cookies WHERE host == '.twitter.com';

The database is saved, no more "twitter" in my cookies.sqlite file, and the tool ensures there is no cookies.sqlite-wal or cookies.sqlite-shm files left.

After that, when I open again twitter, I am no longer connected to my session, but I got an error which seems to be related to cookies (see screenshot).

Moreover, when I oppenup the firefox cookies manager, there is still twitter cookies in the list, but 0 cookies associated.

Where is my mistake ? Can you help me solve my problem ? Thanks
