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 pretty much know how to configure Firefox to "accept" or "reject" cookies. Am also aware that one can address the issue of 3rd party cookies.

I am not sure, however, if it is possible to have Firefox reject all First-Party cookies that are not "session" cookies.

In other words I don't want to accept any Third Party Cookies, and I don't want to accept any First Party cookies--unless they are "Session Only".

Can this be done?

Am using Firefox 18.0.1 and Windows 7

The 'remember me' login option for websites is no longer working (FF18,Win8). FF 'remember' is working.

This is not the ff remember passwords. It is the website provided login with the remember me checkbox. It has worked in the past (pre win8 and earlier versions of ff....definitely not since win8, but cannot tie directly to ff18) except when I ran ccleaner which would somehow remove the 'cookie".

I have played with all the FF options I can relate to the problem without success.

The FF remember me works, but I have to type in the user name before it will enter the password.

I want some websites to be able to store cookies and use them, but i don't want other sites to use those same cookies. I know how to allow/allow per session/block and i even have cookie managing extensions. What i can't find anywhere is information on who can read those cookies once they are set.

Cannot see session cookies in Private Browsing mode - see only normal cookies listed.

Using Firefox 19.0.2 (Windows XP SP3).

Is there some way to allow Firefox to show ONLY a list of current session cookies while in private browsing mode, rather than a list of the normal cookies?

First of all, basic cookie handling appears to be working fine for me, in both normal mode and in private browsing: Cookies set during private browsing are deleted as expected when exiting Firefox or when toggling back to normal browsing.

HOWEVER...

I am unable to SEE the new cookies that are added during a private browsing session.


If I start Firefox normally, toggle to private browsing mode, and then go to Options> Show Cookies, the window opens showing a long list of my "normal" cookies.

Previously, the cookies window would appear to be EMPTY when starting a private browsing session. After browsing a while, and then rechecking the list I would see only the cookies set during that private browsing session.


NOW, during a private browsing session, when I recheck the cookies list I see only my normal cookies, and NONE of the new session cookies appear in the list (the same cookies are shown as before switching to private mode).

I have tried starting Firefox in Safe Mode, with no change in behavior. I have also tried disabling add-ons, with no change.

List of add-ons installed:

Adblock Pluss 2.2.3 BetterPrivacy 1.6.8 Ghostery 2.9.3 Googlebar Lite 4.9.7 IE View 1.5.6 Microsoft .NET Framework Assistant 1.3.1 PrivacyChoice TrackerBlock 2.2 Status-4-Evar 2013.02.16.23 Bookmark Favicon Changer 1.74 (disabled) CheckPlaces 2.6.2 (disabled)


Suggestions?

Thanks!

I would like to keep the google search as it is, in terms of using it as the search engine. I do not wish to change that. I would like to reset or clear the search results from the searchbar however on the startup page at about:home. Is that possible and how could I do this? Is it somethings I need to reset in the about.config file? I have already reset the mstone, setting and the results are still there. Thank you so much, for helping me with this issue.

I always run Firefox in private browsing mode. Normally I don't accept cookies, but turn on the 'Accept cookies from sites' when necessary. Until recently when I've selected 'Accept cookies from sites', cookies have shown up in the 'cookies list'. Now they don't. As far as I can tell, I'm not doing anything differently. Resetting Firefox makes no difference.

I did the first two...no luck. Not sure how to do the 3rd. I had no problems yesterday. thanks
