Something recently changed in Firefox and/or Google Mail. Now I am always asked to sign in to Google Mail. The solution for this problem in Chrome is to allow all cookies. I tried that, after clearing Cache, allow all cookies in Chrome but I am still asked to sign in to Google.Mail. I also removed all by Block, Delete cookie Add-ons in Firefox but it's still asking me to sign in to Google.Mail. What fixes this?

Release 104 Cross-site Redirect Issue

It appears with the latest update, 104.0, my customers are no longer able to log into their accounts with my web site. The console is showing the following warning:

Cookie "JSESSIONID" with the "SameSite" attribute value "Lax" or "Strict" was ommited because of a cross-site redirect.

So the JSESSION ID cookie is being omitted, which is preventing the login process from working correctly.

Going into settings => Privacy and Security and unchecking cookies from the Custom setup still doesn't fix the issue.

The behavior seems to be inconsistent as the same version of Firefox works fine for me on one machine, but generates this warning another, even with the same settings.

Can you explain in more detail why this is happening and steps to fix it?

Thank you, M. Warble

When navigating to the New Yorker, an error message appears that says "The page isn’t redirecting properly

An error occurred during a connection to www.newyorker.com. This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.

It looks like firefox is set up to accept cookies. Where do we need to make the change?

Hi, I use Firefox, with google.co.uk as my search engine. I have had a problem for several months now, whereby I cannot access images/shopping pages on Google. e.g. I enter a search criteria in Google - say, TOP GUN. I then click on "Images" option, and the "Before you proceed" page opens, ref cookies. I click on "Accept all", but the images page does not open. The same thing happens for "shopping".

I installed Google Chrome, seperately, and it works fine with that, just not with google.co.uk via Firefox. I have uBlockOrigin installed. I disabled it, but still doesnt work (although I just realised I didnt restart pc after disabling it, perhaps I should have?)

Other addons/Extensions are Dark reader, Dark theme for Google, Dark theme for YouTube, and New Tab override (plus uBlockOrigin, as already mentioned). I cleared my cache etc via Security/Privacy on Firefox settings. I used to be able to access these pages, however for past couple of months, no luck.

Any suggestions/assistance would be appreciated.

FF wont stop deleting cookies

I notice some problems with firefox since the latest update:

1. Right after the update I enabled the settings to empty the cookies each time FF is closed down ("Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed"). But, I ended not liking this feature since it constantly demanded me to remember my passcodes and became a headache, so I disabled it. But FF still continues deleting cookies each time, and seem to be stuck on deleting cookies.

I've been given various suggestions to go to resolve this, like reinstall, config, etc., uninstall apps, but nothing helps.

2. Another issue I have is FF with Facebook. Using Facebook in FF I can't backspace and I can't post any comment. If I try to post comments it simply moves the cursor down on the page but you can't post anything.

None of these issues continue in other browsers so it must be FF related.

3. FF seem to use enormous amount of memory and power usage, especially when multiple tabs are open (or even if tabs are not open it shows previous tabs in the Task Manager). I'm not a programmer or coder but a friend of mine who was a senior programmer in the banking industry told me it's possible for coders to solve this issue. If I understood him right (and I apologize if my wording is wrong), a solution would be to keep tabs in sleep state if they are open but not active on top so they don't keep running or updating data all the time. This of course would need consideration that sometimes people want to listen to videos or audio while using other tabs - but that would involve every single tab and can perhaps be provided as an option.

Many people like to keep multiple tabs open, yet still have good browsing performance. Maybe there can be a new project to offer better tab management to make them easily visible and accessible? Bookmarks are not that great because they disapper into a long stream of text without clarity what exactly they are until you open the page, and even then scrolling down and using bookmarks is not that great if you have many saved......

Skysports.com always asks me to select cookie options. Allow or View options and reject. I always choose the second one. The problem is. I can never choose the options. Opera browser, a better browser than this one, shows the options and allows me to choose. Sky just shows the same box every single page and I have to go through the same sequence every time.

Why do cookies persist after clicking "Clear Data"?

Hi Mozilla community,

The Developer Tools -> Storage -> Cookies pane shows cookies currently being stored by Firefox.

If I close my browser, these cookies are automatically deleted. However, if I follow the steps on [1], the cookies are still there, and don't get deleted. *Why?*

Thanks in advance!

Steps to reproduce:

- Start a new Firefox session
- Open Developer Tools -> Storage -> Cookies and see that the list is empty
- Go to youtube.com and click Accept All on the cookies popup
- Developer Tools -> Storage -> Cookies now shows a cookie from YouTube, as per the attached screenshot
- Go to Settings->Privacy & Security->Cookies and Site Data -> Clear Data -> Clear
- Go back to Developer Tools -> Storage -> Cookies and click on the refresh icon
- The YouTube cookie is still there
- However either of the following actions will correctly delete this cookie:

1) closing firefox (with Always Use Private Browsing Mode enabled) 2) manually deleting the cookie from the list in Developer Tools -> Storage -> Cookies

I watch videos on dropout.tv which uses the Vimeo SDK as their player for the videos. After switching to Firefox, the video progress has consistently started from where I left off on Chrome. The site doesn't remember where I ended the video when I watch it on Firefox. I assume this has to do with the cookies, but I've manually added "dropout.tv" to the list of exceptions in Firefox settings so that that site is always allowed to store cookies.

Returning briefly to Chrome, the player immediately tracked my progress again, so the issue is definitely related to Firefox somehow.

from preferences page: Your stored cookies, site data, and cache are currently using 17,179,869,184 GB of disk space.

==

almost all are Facebook storage. I'm feeling a little reluctant to delete all site data. If I clear all cookies and site data will that fix the issue? will the issue re-occur?

I've enabled 'Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed' to delete the cookies and site data when I close Firefox, but I would like to add some exceptions (mostly mail site). Every time I add the exception through Manage Exceptions... button and then I close Firefox, when I restart Firefox, the exception is gone. Is this expected? I don't think so. If so, it's not clear in the UI, as the button is just next to the mentioned checkbox.

Version: Firefox 103.0 (64-bit) SO: macOS Monterey 12.5
