Hi,

I have set Firefox to delete every cookie when I exit. However some websites use cookies for dark mode. My question is this : can I make it so Firefox continues to delete every cookie but save only some specific cookies For exemple, linkedin uses a dozen of cookies and two of them are used to store value for dark mode. Can i save only those two ?

Thanks in advance

This is scaring me. Why do I have to surrender so much control to use. I keep getting a popup which says, "Take control of your person data!......Block most trackers as you browse.....Add DuckduckGo to firefox.


AND THEN it looks as if you want to take total control of my computer!

Why do you want so much control over my computer??

Please explain.

It appears that the security settings and others were changed without any notification during a recent update. A login with card number and password were subsequently saved without my knowledge thus exposing my online banking accounts to possible unauthorized use. This should not happen and should be addressed.

My ability to access saved passwords on regular sites I visit is lost each time I turn my laptop off. This means each time I log onto Mozilla I have to reset Privacy. This does not happen on Microsoft Edge. As I would really like to use Mozilla I would like to sort it out.

In JavaScript I did addEventListener('storage', ...), and it's working fine as long as I use localStorage.setItem(), .removeItem(), or .clear(). However, when I use the "Clear Data..." button under "Settings | Privacy and Security" it seems the event does not fire. I noticed that in Chrome the corresponding settings option to clear all data does fire the storage listener, and this is the behavior I'm looking for.

Thanks.

for some reason bitdefender keeps producing this with dns over https enabled on firefox 105.0.1. If I browse that url on a machine without bitdefender is throws an error too about the cert.

firefox.exe attempted to establish a connection relying on an untrusted certificate to mozilla.cloudflare-dns.com. We blocked the connection to keep your data safe since untrusted certificates are issued by unrecognized Certificate Authorities.

I can add an exception but the cert on this size seems to be invalid. Any ideas?
