I switched from chrome to firefox like 2 days ago. Everything went good, but every time i go to youtube it does not remember my login. I have to click the login button and use my phone to confirm the login. Afterwards i get send to an error page only saying "something went wrong". If i click the login button again it suddenly works and i can use my youtube like i used to on Chrome. I use my google account for youtube. Every other login works just fine Reddit, Disney+, Twitch, Prime. I Cleared all my cookies and history and even reinstalled Firefox. only youtube still has this problem. I even added the youtube and google login page to the saved logins. Does someone can offer any help ?

The past few days when i've tried searching for certain pages i go to all the time they won't show up under "firefox suggest" then when i check my history for them the pages are just completely gone, today i checked my history for yesterday and even though i started browsing at 8:00 the history only went back to around 13:00 with all the pages before that completely gone, this also causes me to lose all the cookies as well.

I keep getting signed out of my Google account whenever I close Firefox. I switched the Enhanced Tracking Protection to Standard, and I do not delete my cookies when I close Firefox. I even tried to disable the Purge Trackers option but this didn't help either. I have some dev-tools extensions installed + Adblock and Decentraleyes. It does not solve my problem if a disable them too. Would really appreciate anyone's insight.

On our online application we are facing with some strange behavior for a small percentage of our firefox users (<1%).

When doing oauth2 authorization, after generation of the authentication token we redirect to another platform but we are detecting that for a small percentage of Firefox the cookie (my_auth_cookie) with the auth token is not present.



GET: https://www.mywebsite.com/application/login Response:

new location https://www.mywebsite.com/otherapplication/redirect


set-cookie: my_auth_cookie expires=Mon, 04 Dec 2023 13:49:15 GMT; domain=.mywebsite.com; path=/; secure; samesite=lax; httponly


      2. GET https://www.mywebsite.com/otherapplication/redirect
          Set-cookie: mycookie: value
          Host: www.mywebsite.com


In cookie tab I see my_auth_cookie (value: xxxx, domain: .mywebsite.com, expires: Mon, 04 Dec 2023 13:49:15 GMT, httponly: checked, secure: checked,SameSite: Lax, partitionkey: empty, Priority: medium



I’ve tried to replicate but without success (with multiple extensions, including multi-account containers), with multiple configurations of Total Cookie Protection.

Again, this only seems to be happening to a very limited number of firefox users but for these, it happens 100% of the time. We see it occurring for versions 119 and 120 but now and then for older versions.

Feedback reports no extensions&addons.


Any ideas on what we could be dealing with? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Since last upgrade Firefox seems unable to access any wordpress sites.

Always says to enable cookies. I've done that but still not possible access.

Is Firefox now becoming so "secure" it is useless?

There are more and more web sites where Firefox just is no longer a viable browser.

There is no clear "ENABLE" cookies option to resolve this just pages on explanations about safety yada yada yada.

I just want a button that says ENABLE COOKIES so I don't have to constantly seek answers to use this browser on a particular web site.

As much as I hate Chrome I am finding it more useful now than FireFox

Hi there, I have configured Firefox to remove cookies after closing it. At the same time, I have added some webs that I usually use as exceptions, allowing to remember cookies in those. However, I have the following question: if I reject all cookies except for the mandatories ones in a website that I added to my "remember list", does that mean that future entrances in that web will be with only essential cookies?

As an example, if I mark https://www.bbc.com/ as cookies, and the first time I enter I reject all non-essential cookies, next times I enter in the bbc will I be navigating with only the cookies I accepted on this first entrance? Or allowing a site automatically accepts all cookies?

Thank you very much on advanced.

nsandi.com asks for cookie permissions on every page despite accepting cookies on previous pages.

I raised this with them and they said it was because I am using an unsupported OS, I am using Ubuntu 22.04.3 LTS and FF 117.0 (64-bit) - which they do support.

If I use a different browser, Opera One(version: 102.0.4880.40) on the same machine it is not a problem.

Is there anyway I can make this work correctly using FF?

How to continuously reset history cookies/cache for one website.

Is there a way to continuously clear cookies and cache data for one domain or website? Or reworded, a way to not record cookies or cache data for one domain or website?

I have managed to find the article to clear cookies and cache data for the domain but have not been able to find out how to do this continuously without having to go into the settings each time to clear this history.

Kind regards

My cookies are being deleted very regularly perhaps two times per week and very often it seems to occur after one the the very frequent updates are installed. I have tested this by refusing an update for several days and the cookies remain, but after i accept, often, they are deleted. I have not changed any settings related to cookies at any time and so it does appear that the updates are the couse. there cookies are very useful and include preferences for websites and identification details and it's incrediibly frustrating to have them erased though no fault of mine

I see a similar question on the forums from March 2021, but I'm having this problem now: when I go into icloud.com, it keeps asking for authentication - i.e. it presents a 6-digit code which goes to my phone/ipad, and I have to put it into the browser. After that, I'm prompted "Do you want to Trust this browser" to which I ALWAYS say "Yes", but it doesn't seem to work; the next day, if I try icloud again, it does it all over, like the "Trust" option is ignored. In settings, "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" is unchecked, Clicking "Manage Data" shows that cookies for icloud.com are saved. I've just added icloud.com into Exceptions to Allow to use cookies/site data, though I wouldn't think I'd NEED that if I'm never deleting them. I tried this with Chrome, and the Trust DID work; I can sign in with that browser and not have to put in the code.

What's up with that?

With my previous browsers--such as Chrome and Brave--I could automatically get into key sites without signing in every time. I thought this was due to cookies that my login passcodes. In the case of Google, it is by far the most challenging. Despite having a gmail account since early 2003, and using Google regularly since the '90s, it persists in asking me lots of questions and texting codes, etc.

My situation with Firefox is not working smoothly as it was when I used it for many years about a decade ago. I've already imported such browser data from these sites.

Can you help? Otherwise, I'll move on to Safari again.

Thanks,

Eckhart
