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! (I guess it was the File Type.)

On our online application we are facing with some strange behavior for a small percentage of our firefox users (<1%).

When doing oauth2 authorization, after generation of the authentication token we redirect to another platform but we are detecting that for a small percentage of Firefox the cookie (my_auth_cookie) with the auth token is not present.



GET: https://www.mywebsite.com/application/login Response:

new location https://www.mywebsite.com/otherapplication/redirect


set-cookie: my_auth_cookie expires=Mon, 04 Dec 2023 13:49:15 GMT; domain=.mywebsite.com; path=/; secure; samesite=lax; httponly


      2. GET https://www.mywebsite.com/otherapplication/redirect
          Set-cookie: mycookie: value
          Host: www.mywebsite.com


In cookie tab I see my_auth_cookie (value: xxxx, domain: .mywebsite.com, expires: Mon, 04 Dec 2023 13:49:15 GMT, httponly: checked, secure: checked,SameSite: Lax, partitionkey: empty, Priority: medium



I’ve tried to replicate but without success (with multiple extensions, including multi-account containers), with multiple configurations of Total Cookie Protection.

Again, this only seems to be happening to a very limited number of firefox users but for these, it happens 100% of the time. We see it occurring for versions 119 and 120 but now and then for older versions.

Feedback reports no extensions&addons.


Any ideas on what we could be dealing with? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Is there a Firefox setting that automatically clears cookies? When I turned my computer on, it had been cleared of cookies since the last time I had it on a few hours ago, but I didn't do it. No one else here to use the computer but me. I don't want cookies cleared automatically. How do I change it back to manual? I use Firefox Browser 120.0

thank you

For the past few days, Firefox has been freezing up. By playing around with it, I've found that it's still functioning, but it ceases to update visually. I'm not having the same issues with any other program on my PC, I don't see the icon to update Firefox, and I've restarted my PC a few times along the way.

When this happens, it's not just website contents that freeze, but Firefox's UI as well. Hovering a tab doesn't highlight it. Clicking the hamburger doesn't appear to open the menu. Etc...

If I have a video playing when this happens, I will continue to hear it, but the frame the video is on stays in place.

If I click on another open tab, it will still show me the tab it visually froze on, but if I end Firefox with Windows Task Manager & reopen it, the session saves the tab switch, so it's still taking mouse inputs. I've been able to do similar with keyboard inputs by clicking on the address bar and entering a new URL. I don't see anything as I type it, but after using Task Manager to close and reopen Firefox, the site I entered is there.

I can switch between open Firefox windows when this happens without issue, even on the same monitor, and if I pull up something else in front of Firefox and then switch to Firefox it will still display what was last visible in that Firefox window while the bug is occurring.

I have tried disabling add-ons, and actually found that disabling some of them made it happen *more* frequently, not less. Privacy Badger, Auto Tab Discard, & Ad Nauseum specifically. Switching from Ad Nauseum to AdBlock Plus or uBlock Origin neither increases nor decreases the frequency. My other add-ons, like Duplicate Tabs Closer, haven't had any effects on frequency that I can see. With all of my Add-ons disabled, Task Manager shows double the number of Firefox processes.

I tried to clear my history, but I can only select my last 1 hour of history, as clicking on the dropdown box to select another duration will cause the problem to occur & I can't see the other options in the box to select a longer option. The dropdown to select a topic for this question has the same issue.

These are some actions that risk causing the bug to start, but aren't 100% reproducible, and the list is not exhaustive:

  • Trying to click & drag to pull a tab into becoming its own window or to move the tab into another window. (Firefox does not save this movement if it causes the bug, so closing and reopening it will keep the tab in the window it was already in.) This seems to work fine for some sites, but specifically tends to break if it's a YouTube tab.
  • Mid-clicking to open a link in a new tab, if done on several links in a row
  • Clicking on a UI element, like the hamburger button
  • Right clicking on an image and selecting "copy"
  • Right clicking within Firefox
  • Opening Firefox

I have not seen the bug occur at any time that I was not actively providing some input to the Firefox program.

As the subject says, I logged into my work gmail on my personal laptop, and since then my personal gmail (as well as every other gmail I used on this laptop BEFORE logging into my work one) is now under this Administrator, on all devices. I've contacted the IT department and they said they only had my work gmail under their system. More digging around and I found it to be a cookies issue, as Google Chrome (even after logging in and out of all my gmails personal and work) was absolutely fine and so was Microsoft edge.

No matter how many times I fresh install, clear cookies, or change settings in Firefox, my personal gmail is still locked under restricted mode. Linked below is proof that Google doesn't recognize my account under restriced mode, yet Youtube still says I'm being managed.

I would like my google accounts back, and if I have to wipe all my Firefox data and abandon it, I will. I just don't want to use another browser

No matter what I do every time I close Firefox and reopen it all of the sites I am logged into log out.

I have reinstalled Firefox I have tried both beta and Enterprise versions. I have completely wiped all Firefox data from my appdata folders. I have refreshed Firefox multiple times. I have tried to mess with all the privacy, history, and cookies/cache settings and nothing has worked so far.

No matter what I have looked into the problem is not occuring the same for other people. It seems to be local to my PC however, as I am logged in perfectly fine on other Windows 11 PCs in my home.

The only major difference between the last time I used Firefox and now is that I reinstalled Windows11 to fix a bug with its calendar. I completely formatted so there cannot be any left over old Firefox files.

It does not solve my problem if a disable them too. Would really appreciate anyone's insight.

Hi there, I have configured Firefox to remove cookies after closing it. At the same time, I have added some webs that I usually use as exceptions, allowing to remember cookies in those. However, I have the following question: if I reject all cookies except for the mandatories ones in a website that I added to my "remember list", does that mean that future entrances in that web will be with only essential cookies?

As an example, if I mark https://www.bbc.com/ as cookies, and the first time I enter I reject all non-essential cookies, next times I enter in the bbc will I be navigating with only the cookies I accepted on this first entrance? Or allowing a site automatically accepts all cookies?

Thank you very much on advanced.
