I normally clear the history by choosing "Everything" from "Time range to clean" and choosing all checkmarks except "Site preferences".

How do I exclude a single site from the history deletion process to prevent the settings/cookies of that given site from being deleted ?

Win 7 Home Premium Firefox Version 101.0.1

'Privacy & Security'->'Cookies and Site Data', 'Clear Data.'

When 'Clear Now,' Cached Web Content; is clicked, it does not zero out. (It used to clear completely).

The browser webpage has been refreshed, the browser closed and reopened, and the computer restarted but the cache does not reset.

This issue started on the morning (Pacific time) of June 26-Is this a known glitch or am I missing a detail?

Feature Request, Cookies API - Help finding cookie source

Hello,

I am the developer of the "FlagCookies" - add-on: https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/flag-cookies/

I would like to make a request to include "window id" and "tab id" in the cookie "onCookieChanged" -Event triggered dynamically.

At the present state it is not possible to identify where a cookie is originating from, only the "cookies.cookie" values, but no values for "Window" and "Tab Id" which would dramatically help to assign a cookie to a particular domain even if the "cookie.originURL" or "cookie.url" is different from the surfed on website.

As an example, you can visit "https://freenet.de" which loads different ad trackers - which cookies are displayed as "Cross Origin" in Flag Cookies. A screenshot is attached.

In case you need clarification or more information, please let me know.

I haven't deleted my browsing history since 2021 September, but I wish to restore browsing history from 2021Jan-2021Sep for some reasons.

I am using mac, latest version of macOS and latest version of firefox. I have read some similar articles (https://support.mozilla.org/fy-NL/questions/1290163) but it doesn't help. It says I need to go through "Start" > "Search" > "Tools" > "Folder Options." . I cannot find folder options, and I cannot find index.dat inside my mac. What can I do ? Any help is appreciated.

I need help in a bad way because I have tried all the directions BigFish has given. I am also 82 years old so I will follow your advice. The login worked for a couple of days but I think Firefox had some updates because computer restarted several times when I wasn't present. When that happens I then find myself having problems with Facebook which is a big nightmare in itself but then I also find I once again am blocked from my game site. Below is what I get each time at the BF game site:

Cookies are required to sign in!

No, we're not talking about chocolate-chip cookies. "Cookies" are little text files sent to your browser to help keep track of users. Your browser is set to not accept cookies, so our system cannot sign you in.

Please follow the instructions below for your browser (starting at the top menu), and then refresh this page:

   Internet Explorer:
   Tools -> Options -> Privacy tab. Reduce the setting to medium.
   Opera:
   Tools -> Preferences -> Advanced tab -> Cookies -> Accept cookies.
   Firefox:
   Tools -> Options -> Privacy -> Cookies tab -> Allow sites to set cookies.
   Safari:
   Safari -> Preferences -> Security -> Accept Cookies: Only from sites you navigate to.
   Netscape:
   Edit -> Preferences -> Privacy & Security -> Cookies -> Allow cookies based on privacy settings (or Allow all cookies).

I have tried my best to get Firefox to allow the cookies or eat them or whatever is needed but apparently I am doing something wrong. The BF tech is now advising me to change to another browser but I am unwilling to do that. I am used to Firefox.

Please, is there anyone who can help me, even walk me through so I don't get this same page again and again?

Gail

P.S. I am not above begging either. I am elderly and very close to tears because I retired from a prototype engineering and developmental lab where I worked with robots and all that. I guess they have turned on me.

I have Firefox 99 for Mac "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" is unchecked History is set to "Remember History" Enhanced Tracking Protection is set to "standard"

Yet every time I return to a site where I've checked "remember me" , I'll get prompted to login, and perhaps also get a security message "you've logged in from a new computer" in my email from the site.

Is there an easy way to verify that Firefox is storing cookies for a site. Maybe an option to right-click on a site's web page and view "cookies are stored for this site" in the context menu? I'm losing a lot of my productivity time logging back into sites that I just logged into earlier in the day.
