I am very keen to avoid cookies being stored on my computer and have checked the box that says "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed". I have no "Exceptions". I also have "Strict" tracking protection - again, with no Exceptions. Yet when I open a particular bookmarked website (www.bikemap.net), Firefox displays the page showing the bike route from my street to my friend's house that I looked at weeks ago. This even happens when I open the site in a New Private Window. I am baffled as to why this is happening and what I need to do to stop it. Can you help, please? Thanks.

I have Firefox set to disable cookies. Yet, websites often say that by using their sites, I'm agreeing to the use of cookies. It's unclear to me if by continuing on their sites, I'm thereby temporarily turning my "disable cookies" Firebox function off. Here is a screenshot I took of what I see when I use "storage inspector" under "web developer" menu while I'm on Firefox and I visit one of these websites that says by being there I'm agreeing to the use of cookies. Please tell me ... in this case are cookies being used? I don't know how to interpret what I'm seeing on "storage inspector." I don't know what the lines, rows and the values in them represent. Thanks in advance.

Bonjour ( from France )

I am submitting to you a problem that only appears with your browser and not with Chrome.

These are the cookies that I have configured on my PC to refuse them, it's my choice!

I accept them occasionally when certain sites I visit ask me to

When I connect to my portal, Orange in this case, I always have this banner (see the print sceen attached) which appears each time either by opening my inbox on each of the messages, or by consulting different subjects presented by the home page.

In vain I answer that I accept or refuse, it works on a few selection clicks then the banner reappears!

It's very very annoying

So I switch to Chrome and I don't have this pb so I conclude that it comes from Firefox!

I am retired from IT with 50 years in the business and I do not understand this bug.

Could you delete this permanent alert, especially since it has only appeared for a very few years.

Of course I could do without Firefox and use Chrome as my default browser, but I prefer Mozilla to Google.

Thank you in advance for your answer and remove this headband that breaks our feet.

I am using Multi-Account Containers, and am unclear on how it interacts with the other cookie and storage management features of the browser. If I clear cookies from Preferences -> Privacy & Security -> Cookies and Site Data -> Clear Data, does that clear all cookies in all containers, or just in "No Container"? Is there a way to delete/manage cookies within just a single container? Is there a way to delete/manage cookies for just "No Container"? Is there a plugin to help with this, or a manual means of editing cookies (editing text file or sqlite database)?

I'm experiencing some trouble on the website Chesstempo. I can't acces some of the functionalities on the site and I can't log out off the site.

I think a resent Firefox update might have changed somethings in regard to browser history and cookies?

My problem: Firefox won't delete cookies and browser history. I did a reset and when that didn't work I had to manually delete sqlite and json files. That worked!.....but I'm still experiencing problems on Chesstempo.

I'm on old hardware here, so the problem could be on my end, but Chesstempo worked fine until recently. Obviously Chesstempo have to have the abillity to set and read cookies to track my activity properly.

Other competing products work fine here?

Any thoughts would be appreciated

Good day, i met next issue with Coockes transfer during redirections (i suppose that).

I.e. when i try to download smth from Google drive i got: An error occurred during a connection to doc-0o-ag-docs.googleusercontent.com.

   This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.

I try to follow standard advises such as disable tracking and cookies blocking (as well i disable fingerprints and all addons and delete all cookies and history storage and it's didn't help at all).

I try to download in private mod as well, but got stacked with same issue. With Chromium all works fine.

Firefox version (nightly): 78.0a1 (2020-05-28) (64-bit)

I try to download with vanilla Firefox - same result.

Now the browser version Firefox Quantum Extended Support Release 68.4.1esr (32-bit) for Alt Linux is installed on my computer. Upon request by the POST method in the specified browser from the Apache server on the same computer loads a static web page with the following META tag in its header: <META HTTP-EQUIV="Set-Cookie" CONTENT="name=password; PATH=/"> After that, cookies must be created in the browser. Really they are created - in other browsers (Chrome and Opera), but for some reason they ceased to be created in the Firefox browser. What is the reason for this and is it possible to resume and track their creation in Firefox? I would be grateful for any answer on this question.
