The page isn't redirecting properly




         Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.
       



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

FF17: New cookies don't get stored, existing cookies are not recognized by websites

Since upgrading to FF17 I get requests for new cookies each and every day - even for websites that I'm surfing on since years, and for which the cookie settings clearly state to accept them automatically (if only session based). Accordingly, these sites have cookies stored in my profile, but FF seems to be no longer able to pick those up.

To me this looks like a bug in the program, as nothing else has changed between running (happily) on FF16 and upgrading to FF17.

Youtube will play on the small player, even load 1080P on the small player, and full screen works fine, but refuses to resize to the large player that takes up about half the screen. It worked just fine until I had to reinstall Firefox due to some other bug that is now fixed.

Previous versions of FF allowed you to select individual cookies that wouldn't be deleted when FF closed. This meant you wouldn't have to log in to your favorite sites each time you opened FF; - you'd already be logged in. Later versions of FF no longer have this functionality. However, IE and Safari both do have this functionality. For example, I used to be able to keep my google cookies and browse straight into google reader after the browser opened. Now I always have to login. Does anyone know if the functionality will be restored to FF? The current lack of versatile cookie settings is a hindrance to efficiency.

(PS. Cor-el, please don't answer as you're wrong on this. The key messages are that FF used to have this functionality and plenty of other users agree, and IE and Safari still have it so go and check it yourself, and it has nothing to do with Clear Recent History.) Thanks all. :)

Norton 360 does not pick up tracking cookies after updating to firefox 17.0

With firefox 17.0 Norton 360 does not pick up tracking cookies that were picked up with firefox 16.0.2. Uninstalled 17.0 and and reinstalled 16.0.2 - tracking cookies are picked up - updated to 17.0 and again no tracking cookies. I did not see anything in release note that would seem to reflect this situation. asked this question at 08:57 PST 11/29/2012 and the reply stated that Norton 360 should still be able to remove tracking cookies. WELL IT DOES NOT - WHAT HAS CHANGED FROM 16.0.2 TO 17.0 THAT WOULD CAUSE THIS. IS THIS A NEW BUG? The first reply did not answer my question however it was marked as "solved". I have rolled back to 16.0.2 and updated to 17.0 twice and the same thing has happened both times.

After updating to firefox 17.0 when I do a scan with Norton 360 it no longer picks up tracking cookies. These cookies that were picked up with firefox 16.0.02 what have you changed? Further I am getting sick of these updates - at least tell us users what has changed in new versions.

Using Firefox 16.0.1 under Windows 7

I want to use wget to script fetching some files, but I need the cookies from my login. wget lets you load from a cookies.txt file, but all I can find is cookies.sqlite, and that does not seem to work.

I am assuming that cookies.sqlite is an "improvement" over the older "cookies.txt" format ... but is there any way to export cookies to the old format (or just tell Firefox to use the old format)?

i'm looking for the cookie exception list that seems to have moved in later versions. I'm having trouble with Facebook and yahoo mail in that Firefox is showing those sites in frames. If I reset Firefox it works fine, but I am tiring of resetting it twice a day to read my email. It was suggested to add these sites to the cookies exception list - except that it's not where it used to be.

Is there an extension, add-on, or facet of Firefox that would enable me to prevent a site from placing a certain cookie in my computer whilst allowing me to keep the rest of the cookies from that site?

Because Youtube's new layout is terrible, there's a cookie that's responsible for it, and I can't get rid of it without being logged out or it just adds it back in.
