I am on Windows 11. I utilize Firefox only. I have always been able to obtain banking statements but now I am getting an error message: "Your session has timed out due to inactivity. To access your online statement please close this window and click the link found in Online Banking to reopen online statement." I contacted the bank and they had me clear cookies but it didn't help. They tried to get me to cookie settings, bit mine steps were not the same as theirs. The had me go to Chrome and their site worked perfectly. I prefer Firefox and would hate to have to make it my primary. Do you know why my banking is not working on Firefox? How can my cookie setting be OK for Chrome but not Firefox?

So I am working on my own website & a couple days ago I got a requested headers too large error. After looking up what that meant, I cleared my cookies & cache but it didn't work. After looking it up more I renamed (added .old) the coolie file in my profile & I thought maybe it worked for a while but then all of a sudden it came back. Now I keep getting the requested headers too large error like every 5 minutes & have to keep clearing cookies & cache every time, which works for 5-15 minutes & then it happens again. Which is more than extremely frustrating when I'm trying to work on my website! And it's only happening on my site.

So how can I fix this for good? Is the cookie file getting corrupted again? If so, how to I prevent that?

Hello guys!

So i have been searching all over for how to recover my deleted cookie data. I clicked on where it says manage data in the prefences but I didnt mean to click delete data. Is there anyway I can restore that info? It is mostly because I use this site called band camp to download music and I keep a lot of tracks that I want to buy in my cart. but since I deleted the cookie data now all those songs I found are gone along with all the other cookie data. Is there an easy way to do this? im running Firefox 77.01

Whenever I attempt to download anything from my Google drive I get this error in the attached image. Never had this issue before. Attempting to allow all cookies and manage exceptions doesn't work and also clearing caches and other cookies fails as well. The only way that works is by getting a shareable link and pasting it into an incognito tab and dragging the image onto the desktop. This doesn't work with other file types, only images.

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.

Question, My security preferences says my settings are controlled by my organization. This is a personal win 10 installation. Also third party cookies are re-enabled every time I run firefox according to a spybot scan. My linux installations seem to give me full control without the controlled by organization message. I'm guessing it has something to do with microsoft. I have reinstalled firefox twice without syncing to my account with the same result. Just wondering if you have seen this before. Thank you!!

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.

Haven't been able to stay signed into online accounts like YouTube and Google accounts when I restart Fifrefox. The reason I am going to the trouble to post about it is because it used to work no issue. It gets me thinking if Google must have changed something in their policies recently to make this so difficult, like it just denies Firefox's anti-tracking features and stuff.

Here's what I already tried doing: First turn off cookie auto delete for a sec, then see if Fifrefox is deleting the cookies I need in settings. Then finally, check to see if enhanced tracking is deleting the cookie (so I disabled it for Youtube and accounts.google.com for the time-being.) Still no luck with staying signed in after all those tweaks.

Last you might be thinking that this may have somethiing to due with Enhanced Tracking Protection (ETP) 2.0 in the recent FIrefox update but the thing is, I started having this issue before the new update. I've scoured the settings in Firefox and am out of ideas. Perhaps somebody who is more familiar with the settings could point me in the right direction?

There is only one last thing to mention: I do use DNS over HTTPS with a custom provider. Is it at all possible this brings complications with it? Maybe I didn't have the right idea about it when I added it.
