There are four alternative options in the dropdown for Enhanced Tracking Protection>Cookies:

  1. 1. Cross-site and social media trackers
  2. 2. Cookies from unvisited web sites
  3. 3. All third party cookies
  4. 4. All cookies

My question: Are these listed in order of scope, meaning more powerful and comprehensive options as one reads down the list? If "yes", then: What types of cookies are further blocked by going from #1 above to #2? What types of cookies are further blocked by going from #2 to #3? What types of cookies are further blocked by going from #3 to #4? Answers to the above would be helpful in deciding which level of blocking to choose.

Hello,

I would like to allow a select set of websites to save cookies. It would be nice if the data for these sites is saved when history is cleared when I close the browser. After browsing a number of help articles, it is not clear to me that Firefox supports the capability.

Am I missing something? Any help to configure my browser to selectively save data (cookies) and clear all other junk is much appreciated.

Thanks in advance for all your help.

Regards, Raghu

end of my question there are three messages the two before are to collate with this one

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.

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.

Again,I loose the cached data for websites to recognize (cookies or otherwise), and beleive that I have all of the security settings very liberal. EX: - Logging back into a bank, I have to get a text or e-mail code - Logging into Amazon 2 accounts are missing; so I do not get the page where I chose an account -Logging into Google, all 3 accounts are missing; so I do not get the page where I chose an account

Recently, I resolved a "mouse not responsive to drop menus" problem with a reset, and I do not want to go through that again.

Any ideas?

On my other computer I open Firefox and immediately get a pile of pop-ups. These pop-ups seem to be cookie requests from my speed dial sites, and no matter what I click ("allow" or "deny") they keep coming back and then freeze up and I can't use the browser so I have to turn off computer. Help, please.
