Firefox 21, if i clear cookies will all of my usernames and passwords be deleted? If so is there a way to prevent it? Terry

Gekozen oplossing

If you clear cookies then websites won't remember you anymore and you need to login once again.

You will still have the passwords in the Profile Manager if you have saved them.

  • Tools > Options > Security: Passwords: "Saved Passwords" > "Show Passwords"

Websites remembering you and automatically log you in is stored in a cookie.

  • Create a cookie Allow exception to keep such cookies, especially for secure websites and when cookies expire when Firefox is closed.
  • Tools > Options > Privacy > Firefox will: "Use custom settings for history" > Cookies: Exceptions

You can let cookies expire when you close Firefox. Then you keep cookies with an allow exception. If you clear cookies manually then all specified cookies are removed including cookies with an allow exception.
