where are the cookie exceptions stored? I want to copy it to somewhere safe.

Although, the cookie exceptions for 17.0.1 is now working as in 16.0.2, I would like to put a copy of this file somewhere safe so if Foxfire updates and I loose the cookie exceptions, I don't have to re-create a new cookie exception list. I've looked in several places; user, me, apdata, and can't identify which file changes; Vista makes the search for the changed file (when I close 17.0.1) a little difficult.

I have troubles enabling the cookies, even though I never disabled them, thus I cannot log into my GMAIL account for over two weeks now. What should I do?

I cannot log into my gmail or facebook account, because it says: cookies are disabled, enable cookies to continue. I tried changing my settings in Firefox - Options - Settings - Privacy - Use custom settings. I did exactly what I was advised in the Firefox Help online, enabled everything, then clicked OK. Didnt work. Tried it again and I only found that the settings (custom settings - enabled everything) were not even saved. I am not able to save these custom settings any way, it never saves them no matter how many times I try and click ok, I come back to the setting to find that they are not there. So I tried clearing all the cookies and cache in history (also found this online in firefox support site), guess what? DIDNT WORK. I am starting to be a little bit pissed off as I cannot log into my gmail or facebook account for over two weeks now! Any time I need to check e-mails I have to use someones laptop.

I am working on a php app and spent hours scouring through code because when I log off the site it should set the cookies to expire an hour ago. Then when you log in it should create new cookies of course. So when I logged off one account and into another it was pulling up cookies that should have expired and changing account information for another account because of this. Tried to recreate the same problem in chrome doesn't happen only in fire fox. Any ideas?

So after this new stupid youtube update, it for whatever reason logged me out of my gmail and my youtube accounts, even though i have it set to always have me logged in. when i type in the correct e-mail and password, it redirects me to a page that says "Your browser's cookie functionality is turned off. Please turn it on." So, i came here for help to see if there was a problem, and there was (yay google) and i followed the steps to every solution that i could find. Unfortunately, none of them worked in the slightest, and im stuck out from my e-mail. i can access my youtube and gmail perfectly fine at school, but when i come home it seems to. yes, i already opened up the firefox > options > privacy and did all of that. i deleted all my cookies, enabled 3rd party cookies and disabled it multiple times to see if it would fix anything. sadly to no avail. Now that none of that worked, i come here asking for help one last time :( if anyone has a solution to this, it would be greatly appreciated. preferably something that hasnt been repeated in other posts about this, because ive probably already read it :\

I read the first suggested article before posting this question, but it wasn't specific enough so I was forced to comment, "This article fails to specify use of the backed up file in the event of a system/HDD reformat." The article reveals that the profile folder name must match (match WHAT in this scenario?), but does not reveal if any of the files within the profile have that specific identification embedded in them [which might result in logical error or error messages, and failure to accomplish desired goal]. It also does not say if all I want to do is back up the cookies, whether or not will backing up cookies.sqlite and placing it in the new default profile after the system reinstallation/hard drive reformat work.

Let me get more general in the event I'm not communicating what I wish to: I don't want to use a confusing, perhaps badly-written Firefox add-on to do this. I have a few secure sites I visit that give me a really hard time when I update or reformat, like my bank and NetFlix. Both parties CLAIM that I am "attempting to access your account from a different computer," but their security protocol writers are MORONS and liars, because it is NOT a different computer; instead of storing the STATIC MAC address of my computer, which DOES identify the specific computer attempting access, they store a number of different bits of data which are VOLATILE and DYNAMIC [in cookies], and I have to go through this bullcrap of accessing my email account and entering in a verifying one-time-use code to get to my own [epithet for solid waste matter]. So, will I be able to do what I want just by manually backing up cookies.sqlite and placing it in the appropriate directory when needed? It should be a very simple matter for these idiot security experts to query systems for the MAC addresses or to get users to supply it manually (it's easy to find), but NO! That would make SENSE, be EASY, and MORE EFFECTIVELY MANAGE THE SECURE NETWORKS. My idiot bank does not even allow the use of special characters necessary for the creation of sophisticated passwords [that would take over a quintillion years to hack via a Brute Force attack].
