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.

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!!

If I want to change whether cookies are enabled/disabled on Firefox, must I sign in to Firefox and then change my settings, or can I just click on the Firefox icon on desktop, open application and change settings from drop-down menu without signing into account?

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.

I have been using the browser Ecosia (you should too), which is essentially a web browser that plants trees as you search. The problem is that it would normally save the amount of trees that I have planted, but because Firefox clears cookies every time I close, it resets every time I close the browser. I know that I could just not delete cookies, but I would really rather not.

When using an internal website I usually get an error when using Firefox:

Bad request Cannot parse token. root cause: Unable to decrypt bytes [ (then a bunch of numbers).

If I clear cookies this then it works for a while. If I use Chrome or Edge it usually works although sometimes I get something similar. The IT chaps insist it's a browser issue(of course). I'd rather not have to keep clearing cookies - any thoughts?

Once every week it seems Firefox forgets im logged in and kicks me out from every site.

I can close Firefox and turn off computer and im still logged in on Youtube on startup, but some time during week it seems to drop the logged in state and i have to redo it on multiple sites.

Im starting to wonder if it has something to do with my Phone visiting Youtube on same account that screws it up. It seems to happen when i disappear from PC for some hours and comes back. In that time ive usually streamed Youtube content on Chromecast.

Ive had this happen meanwhile i was logged in on Youtube with the tab open. Once i refreshed i was logged out. Ive cleared cookies/cache to test if that was the issue but that didnt fix it. Other than that clearing cookies is disabled and has been so at all times.

This problem has been going on for a few months.
