I've checked a couple of the "similar topics" before posting here. I'm not sure if I am having the same problem or something else.

Back Story: I have a "few" windows and tabs open in FireFox. I would finish what I was doing, shut down and then the next time I booted up and loaded FireFox, all sessions would be restored and all log ins honoured (kept). That is: I was still logged in.

(Moving to now) Yesterday I powered up and ALL sites were logged out. About 20 log ins were needed. Hmmmmm... gmail, and the rest.

"Ok... something happened. No problems, things should be ok from now. I've logged in, so all is sweet."

Today I power up: All logs ins lost. Had to go through it all again.

Gmail is throwing security alerts at me hand over fist. Yeah, that is good in some ways. I get that part. But I've logged in.

Seems - my thoughts - that the cookies aren't being saved. But why? I haven't touched them or their settings.

Yes, I did do a clean out of older cookies. But left the gmail ones, and other sites I know I use. I have `adblocker ultimate` installed.

Now I am logged in, if I open the `cookies` and look I should see them there for the sites to which I am logged in - yes?


To be clear: When I am done, I do NOT `exit` FireFox. All windows, tabs, sessions are left. I just shut down the machine. Then next time I load FireFox and they are re-loaded and log ins are maintained.

It seems that there was an internal page for permissions, namely about:permissions. As I was trying to find an answer to my question, I found many volunteers at Mozilla Support would talk about this, but what I'm asking for is different. I'm looking for a way to list websites per permission, that is, when I want to disable a permission for a bunch of websites at once, I specify the permission and remove the websites I do not want to have that permission. In one of the questions on the site, an extension called SQLite Manager was mentioned and seemed to be the solution. This extension, though, doesn't exist anymore. If what I'm looking for can be done through this extension, I'd like to know if there is an alternative. If it doesn't serve the purpose that I am talking about, I'd be happy to know if there is a different workaround.

"Delete cookies and site data when firefox is closed" setting not remembered

"Delete cookies and site data when firefox is closed" setting not remembered - I have this ticked but when I restart Firefox, it is UNticked. I created a new clean profile, and the same thing happens with that. This started I think once I updated to version 102.0 64bit recently, and seems to have broken Twitter login - each time I have to go to settings, and clear history - after doing some experiments as to what bit of History needed clearing, it was the setting "offline site data" that was the critical one. Why won't Firefox, even in a brand new profile with no addons, REMEMBER that I have ticked ""Delete cookies and site data when firefox is closed" setting not remembered"? Firefox desktop, 102.0 64 bit, Windows 7. Thank you.

Firefox developer locked out because of 2-factor authentication

Two days ago I tried to log into my account at addons.mozilla.org, but the page would not take the codes from my Google authenticator, or any of the saved recovery codes. I was able to change the password via email reset, but no way getting in to disable the 2-factor thing. I can't even seek support from that account, and this is why I'm using a different account to post here.

I want to add that this behavior started suddenly without my having changed anything on my account. The support page that instructs users to reset the clock on Google Authenticator is incorrect, too, since this app does not provide that function (maybe it did in the past, I guess).

Bottom line: I'm stuck and my addons are not getting updated. I'm sure Mozilla wants me to update them, but they have to provide a way for me to log in. Regrettably, it seems to be impossible to talk to a person.

Any help will be appreciated. The account with the problems is fruiz500@gmail.com Thanks!

Hi All

I manage my cookies manually as I keep many tabs open permanently. Having to constantly log back in to those accounts would be onerous if cookies were deleted on close of browser. Managing this via manually adding the website exceptions function is also a drag.

Would it be possible to have a 'keep cookie list' that are saved when the browser is closed?

Cheers M

I use IIS 10.0 (win 11) to manage a local site and Dreamweaver for web design. Well, when I try to preview a temporary page I design, Firefox does not display the images of the page nor execute some simple javascripts. It seems that I have to add an exception somewhere for the local URL (http://asmatron.blog/), as I have done with Edge, but I can't find where to.

Any help?

Hi, under Settings/Privacy/Cookies and Site Data/Manage data we can see site per site - how many cookies are currently existing - and how much storage

but I cannot understand what this "storage" includes. Let me explain : As soon as you open New York Times website (www.NYTimes.com), you can see there 12.4Mo of storage for nytimes.com. But if, thanks to Web Developer tools (Ctrl+Maj+I) I delete - all cookies relative to this website - and all cache storage - and all IndexedDB - and all Local Storage - and all Session storage and then close the tab opened on nytimes.com, and purge all cache, settings/manage data still says 10.6Mo for nytimes.com !!

This is obviously not only relative to nytimes.com, but most of the websites I browse have the same. I choose the example of nytimes.com to be very specific, and because it's a site anybody can browse, and the amount of "unknown storage" is very large.

What are these data, if they are not any of the above categories ? Where are they stored ? What are they useful to ?

Thanks in advance for your help !
