Keeping cookies in Firefox; man-oh-man, why is this so difficult?

Hello. I just updated to FF 94 but my confusion pre-dates the update. It would be most helpful to have a clear, concise, non-nerd jargon about how to keeps cookies. I normally delete cookies on domain change. This works for me!

I have a specific domain, a bank, that *now* charges me a fee to log in and check my account: two-step verification. The bank says that if I don't delete their cookies when I log off then I won't be charged a fee the next time I try to log in. Fair enough.

After looking through the Firefox / Mozilla explanations on how to keep cookies, what I read is not clear. Lets start here: many of the explanations show images of the about:config: "Cookies and Site Data. What I see on my screen is not what is presented in the proposed solution. Example: at this page https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1287495 it shows "Manage Permissions". On my screen it says "Manage Exceptions". There is a big difference in understanding between "Permissions" and "Exceptions" and seeing as how I don't know what "Permissions" mean then I'm left with a hole in my understanding of how to proceed. This might sound a minor point to make, but I can not find a clear, up-to-date (FF 93) how to keep selected cookies. So please let me state clearly what I want to know and hopefully a clear, concise answer may appear.

- I want to keep specific cookies, from a specific domain, that were loaded into FF during a session. - The next time I attempt to login to that specific domain, the previously saved (hopefully) cookies will be recognized by the domain and allow me to log in without further charges.

For my purposes the "Cookies and Site Data - Manage Data" function is not relevant. I don't need to make a special election to allow cookies from my bank, nor am I trying to restrict cookies from entering the browser. I simply want to save particular stored cookies for the next attempted login to a specific domain.

Please, and with respect: clear, concise, simple language that is attuned with the visuals / graphics / images of FF 93.

Thank you in advance and wishing you healthy times.

Detail like websites remembering you and log you in automatically is stored in a cookie, so make sure you aren't clearing important cookies.

You can use these steps to make a website recognize and remember you.

  • create a cookie allow exception with the proper protocol (https:// or http://) to make a website remember you

You can check that you aren't clearing important cookies.

  • using "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" keeps cookies with an allow exception
  • using "Clear history when Firefox closes" to clear cookies clears all cookies including cookies with an allow exception you may want to keep
  • clearing "Site Preferences" clears exceptions for cookies, images, pop-up windows, and software installation and exceptions for passwords and other website specific data
  • Settings -> Privacy & Security
    Cookies and Site Data: "Manage Exceptions"

My mistake: I have updated to FF 94.0.1 I mentioned FF93. That was a error. Sorry.
