Cookies and Site Data section, Manage Exceptions… Keep deleting

Hi, I am trying to understand why my exceptions (blocked web sites) keep deleting and or when I delete cookies the exception are also removed? I apply several web sites to be always blocked, but every time I go back to add another or check. They have been removed. Also if I tick the delete cookies when closed. That also deletes the exceptions. Why would it do this?

Why on earth would I continue to re-enter the same several exceptions every time I open Firefox?

Am I missing something else in the settings? And yes I always click on save changes.

Thank you for your time. Doc

Hi Doc, make sure that in the History section, you are not clearing your exceptions list (included as part of "Site Settings"). The below combination of settings should work -- they work for me:

Any improvement?

Thank you jscher2000,

I don't know why I didn't catch that before. It seems to be working. Now to reload them all back in.

Just throwing it out there. Too bad they don't have the ability to export/import your list.

Thanks again for the fast reply.
