The past few days when i've tried searching for certain pages i go to all the time they won't show up under "firefox suggest" then when i check my history for them the pages are just completely gone, today i checked my history for yesterday and even though i started browsing at 8:00 the history only went back to around 13:00 with all the pages before that completely gone, this also causes me to lose all the cookies as well.

Hello. Can someone please explain why Facebook asks for username/password every single time Firefox is restarted? I do not use cookie-cleaning extensions. They also send a 'login attempt' email and phone notification every time.

Tried with and without Facebook Container. Not using other Container/multi-account related extensions. My settings:

Standard Tracking Protection (allow/block exceptions: none) "Do not track" signal: Always Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed: disabled (no exceptions) History - Firefox will: Remember History

Thank you

  1. 1 I set the Manage Data tab to 'Allow' for sites I want cookies saved for. This sets the http and https addresses for the sites I enter.
  2. 2 I set the same sites in the 'Manage Exceptions' tab so that these sites do not have their cookies deleted.
  3. 3 Save Settings
  4. 4 Close and re-open Firefox. All cookies are deleted.

I suspect this is a bug?

Cheers.

about.ef2a7dd5-93bc-417f-a698-142c3116864f.mozilla This ‘cookie’ (no size shown) has been showing up on my Firefox ‘manage website data’ since at least March ’23 and it will NOT delete. It may not be 'a real cookie' but I still can’t get rid of it.

When I searched online for that apparent address I found: https://gitlab.torproject.org/tpo/applications/tor-browser/-/issues/40175 The info near the top of that site’s page: Torbutton INFO: tor SOCKS: http://expyuzz4wqqyqhjn.onion/static/images/home/png/block-trackers@3x.png?h=70991bcb via --unknown--:cc55771ba6d6e8c6542066863a47e223 SOCKS is a username? And the ‘onion/hidden service’ address cannot be accessed unless using the Tor browser? So that seems a dead end for me.

I have seen 3 other people posting here in the past year about this particular cookie. hobro1 did an uninstall & still had to remove directories manually after getting some answers from several others. blazee decided – based on the answer given by jscher 2000 – that it probably wasn’t dangerous. mekishev 1 received an answer from cor-el that is incomprehensible to me, except for saying ‘it isn’t a real cookie’. I understand it may not 'a real cookie' but then why is it showing up in 'manage website data' where everything else is a cookie?

Can anyone help, please? I’m about to migrate over to a new computer and really don’t want to take this with me. I don’t like the fact that it persists, and that the cookies ‘keeper’ – SOCKS maybe? – is completely hidden.

Thanks much in advance for any assistance!

PS The only possible explanation I've come up with for how it got this cookie is when I was checking out some Firefox extensions; I didn’t even know what Tor was till trying to figure this out.

With my previous browsers--such as Chrome and Brave--I could automatically get into key sites without signing in every time. I thought this was due to cookies that my login passcodes. In the case of Google, it is by far the most challenging. Despite having a gmail account since early 2003, and using Google regularly since the '90s, it persists in asking me lots of questions and texting codes, etc.

My situation with Firefox is not working smoothly as it was when I used it for many years about a decade ago. I've already imported such browser data from these sites.

Can you help? Otherwise, I'll move on to Safari again.

Thanks,

Eckhart

I have been using Mozilla Firefox for years. I am using the latest version (121.0 (64-bit)). Suddenly today, several websites result in a blank screen (startme and nextdoor) and other pages will not let me login (Citi, Edelman Financial Engines). I tried deleting the cookies and site data and history but it did not help and might have made it worse. When I tried to login to Mozilla support, it says I need to enable cookies and will not let me login. When I go to "Settings-Privacy & Security", it is set to "Standard" which is supposed to include allowing cookies. If there is another place to enable cookies, I do not know where that is.

If I use Microsoft Edge, all the webpages work normally. I had to post this message using Edge because I cannot login to Mozilla using Firefox.

I have many bookmarks saved so I hope whatever the solution is will not lose them.

Thanks to anybody who can help me fix this problem

I think it has to do with cookies, but I can't figure out what to fix. I have my tracking privacy set to strict. Twitch has permission to use my cookies and site data (Settings -> Privacy and Security -> Cookies and Site Data -> Manage Exceptions). All of the other websites that I have granted that permission to have no problem remembering my device, but Twitch does. I looked at this post already and my account was already set to these settings. How do I make Twitch remember by device? It's annoying to have to go to my email and use a one-time passcode every time I log in.

I see a similar question on the forums from March 2021, but I'm having this problem now: when I go into icloud.com, it keeps asking for authentication - i.e. it presents a 6-digit code which goes to my phone/ipad, and I have to put it into the browser. After that, I'm prompted "Do you want to Trust this browser" to which I ALWAYS say "Yes", but it doesn't seem to work; the next day, if I try icloud again, it does it all over, like the "Trust" option is ignored. In settings, "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" is unchecked, Clicking "Manage Data" shows that cookies for icloud.com are saved. I've just added icloud.com into Exceptions to Allow to use cookies/site data, though I wouldn't think I'd NEED that if I'm never deleting them. I tried this with Chrome, and the Trust DID work; I can sign in with that browser and not have to put in the code.

What's up with that?

My cookies are being deleted very regularly perhaps two times per week and very often it seems to occur after one the the very frequent updates are installed. I have tested this by refusing an update for several days and the cookies remain, but after i accept, often, they are deleted. I have not changed any settings related to cookies at any time and so it does appear that the updates are the couse. there cookies are very useful and include preferences for websites and identification details and it's incrediibly frustrating to have them erased though no fault of mine

On my computer, I started using a VPN and I accessed a website like Avast.com (clicked OK on their cookie privacy policy) with Mozilla Firefox after forgetting to clear my past cookies and browsing data (from before using the VPN). Could that website or Avast.com (website server) have been able to track/obtain my real IP info or location through my browser's cookies/previous browsing data (from prior, different websites that I accessed)?

Please excuse my carelessness and ignorance. I am new to this. I don't know much about computers and the internet.

Okay;

So a super positioned photon has a 720 degree of field displacability within its' emtiness and with its' orbitals and what-not...

But why does 4-Wheel luggage move so much more freely; it may even be in one place while maintaining the same 360 degrees of motions that a 2-Wheeled Luggage has - while it is in a fixed direction...

But they both offer the same 360 degrees of singular direction of motion...but...if you have4 Ball-Socket Joints on the bottom of the luggage, it could be going - without axle request-response reisistancant-fixation...; in spirals about the axis which it is also 360 degree traveling in...it could cover double the distance, while only traveling half the actual linear distance...

~$4 @ Harbor Freight.

P.S. I found a glitch as I typed this - If you "Copy Image," you can Click "Add Image," then "Paste," the Image , successfully - it appeared on the display within that Folder...now it is on My desktop, but it fails to Upload, I can go and repaste - ACTUALLY replacing it on my Desktop...but it fails...


AHHHH unsupported Image Type...

You all could totally allow me to upload into an HTML6 Canvas with WASM, which I would suggest Simply Strips out the Color Positional Data; Storing it as a Binary Format - and then when you go to Display it; simply Read that Fetched Binary into a Linear Memory Sequence, as SetPixel Commands into the Canvas API...You do not REALLY need the WASM...But WebAssembly!
