Hi all,

I realise I can disable the Automatically Redirecting/Refreshing globally, which is the default setting that I wish to have. However I have a number of sites that I use on an almost daily use where I want to have exceptions and allow redirecting/refreshing.

Is it possible to have per site exceptions? Even if through an addon?

Thanks

I am in my late 70s and need software that works as advertised. I will not put up with software that requires lots of my time to keep working. I have a FF account for my computer (I do not have or want any other devices). I am getting thoroughly sick of the nag screen in top right corner to the point that if I cant solve this soon I WILL move to another browser. Updating is set to Auto, I have tried the other settings and they still did not help so went back to auto. I have downloaded and installed FF69 but it did not pick up any of my bookmarks etc so is totally useless and now my adblock on FF67 is broken.

Please continue here: [/questions/1264825]
Firefox will not remember my logon info for only one website. I called and spoke to the person in charge of their website and said Firefox works okay for them when logging onto their website but I don't know for sure if it is the latest version, which I have. There is no way that I can turn off the auto logon feature in Firefox for one website.

What can be done to resolve this problem?

Thanks

I asked a question the other day here is the link https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1263806

i thank the two people that replied but unfortunately the instructions from them were to no avail, i looked into my folder named 'jfzay9hf.default', which basically showed all of my firefox data and numerous folders of different data, in one of the replies it said to check the 'sessionstore-backups' folder to see if i could the previous session that contained the window i lost, but i could not find any from the date of the session i lost, i also tried to find a 'shadow copy' using a app called 'shadow explorer' to see if i could find a earlier version of the session..but i still found nothing. i looked around and found a folder named 'data reporting' and inside that was a archives folder. i found a something named '1561953795359.bceb0e3c-db98-4f51-b748-bf53f96491e3.main.jsonlz4' and the date for it was 7/1/19 and there was another with a similar name but a date of 7/2/19 which was around the time i lost that window and both of these files types were 'JSONLZ4'. i tried to view them with the jefferson scrounger tool, but they did not show any tabs or window/urls of any sort it just showed the name of the file i put in.

is there a way i can view these files to see what tabs/windows were on them with the scrounger tool? is there anything else i could do to try and get this erased window back, other than searching through my history for hours?

Firefox browser will not view jpg files (pictures) in my Windows 10 computer. I discovered this when I was trying to import my account photo.

Issue solved! Simply indicating file uploads as jpg etc, must use *.* for all files. Then Firefox can see the *. jpg files.

When Firefox apparently updated itself while I was away from my computer, all of my Bookmarks vanished. I did not authorize this act, and am upset since I have a LARGE number of Bookmarks on my P.C. Why did the latest Firefox update seem to wipe out all Bookmarks? How can I recover the ones I've always stored in the Firefox Web interface? Recovering these Bookmarks is essential. Thank you in advance.

A new problem has occurred since updating to FF 67.0.

My default configuration is to block all cookies. For those sites I wish to allow, I create exceptions to either Allow or Allow for Session.

On one of the sites I use I have an exception as: https://CompanyName.com Allow for Session (name changed to protect the innocent)

There are a number of subdomains used and so all subdomain cookies are allowed for the session.

As of FireFox 67, I could no longer log into the site. I found that it was stuck in a loop reloading the page.

If I allowed all cookies, then the login would work. Once logged in, I could block all cookies again and everything continued to work on the site. So it was only the process of logging in that was failing.

First thing I did was disable all cookie related add-ons. That didn't help. If I changed the setting for CompanyName.com to Allow, it worked. Next I tried setting CompanyName.com back to Allow for Session and tried each subdomain with the Allow. What I found was I need to change one specific subdomain to Allow, so now my exceptions list is like this: https://CompanyName.com Allow for Session https://login.CompanyName.com Allow

So it seems as though the necessary cookie for login.CompanyName.com was being removed early so the log in could not be completed. Once a log in was successful, I could look at the cookies and see them for this subdomain (as well as the others).

I can't see anything I did wrong, so I'm thinking there may be a bug somewhere in FF67.
