Clear Cookies and Site Data Doesn't Work

I was having trouble switching and logging out of Twitter so I thought I could just clear site cookies to make it work, but I weirdly discovered "about:preferences -> Manage Data -> Remove Selected / Remove All Shown" has no effect. i.e. after clearing, when I open up manage data again, they are still there. I did not try "Clear Data" above it because I was afraid of clearing out all my logins.

I reinstalled my computer several weeks ago and current profile was directly copied from my last machine, so this might be a possible cause? Could someone be so kind to help me get remove cookies and hopefully twitter back to work? Thank you in advance.

Firefox beta release: 116.0b6 (64-bit)

On sites such as BBC.com, Youtube.com and Facebook.com I am not getting the normal cookie consent pop-up option which used to automatically show on opening the sites. Other sites are still showing the cookie consent option pop-ups. This means I cannot select if I wish to accept or reject cookies on several sites that used to allow me the option.

In checking about:config, the cookiebanners.service.mode is set to 1, which I believe this the correct setting for enabling the cookies consent pop-up option.

Is there any fix for the cookie consent pop-up not working on certain sites within the EU? I am not using a VPN or pop-up blocker. Tracking protection is set to Standard, cookies and site data are always deleted on closing Firefox and "Do Not Track” signal is set to always. Deleting all installed FF extensions has no effect either.

In other browsers on the same PC, Chrome and Edge, the cookie consent option does still work as it should on the sites mentioned. In Firefox it doesn't.

This is only happening on one PC. My latop has the same FF beta build installed and is not showing this behaviour, it still automatically shows the cookie consent pop-ups when visiting sites such as BBC.com, Youtube.com and Facebook.com.

Hello

I'm trying to sign into a Microsoft 365 email account but can't get beyond a screen saying "To use this site, you need to change your browser settings to enable DOM storage or cookies."

I've enabled DOM storage and cookies but no difference. I've cleared cookies and no help. I'm running Firefox 115.0.2 and Linux Mint.

Is part of the problem that I hate Microsoft and they know it?

Thanks

I'd like to be able to prevent a specific address from appearing in the Firefox address bar (as a suggestion) when I start to type in the address bar. I tried deleting the cookies associated with a particular address, but the address still appears as a suggestion in the address bar when I start typing its name. Thanks a lot for any help.

On a new website or after clearing the cache and cookies and upon opening a page I will often get a pop-up with cookie usage choices, e.g. "strictly necessary", etc. However, the pop-up disappears before I have a chance to click on any choice or even finish reading the first line. I'm not sure what settings I need to change to allow me to make a choice on the pop-up. Please advise. Thanks.

I use Pinterest quite a bit and somehow a great deal of pins have disappeared.

This happened once before when I was using Chrome, and I was able to go digging into my cached files and find the cached versions of the thumbnails of my Pins, so I could somewhat recreate them based on that.

I'm not sure how to go about that with Firefox. Would any information (specifically images) be stored from a previous version of a webpage?

Thank you!

Hello,

I am having problems with some sites and the error seems to indicate that it is related to cookies.

In Google Drive, when I am trying to download any file, it is getting stuck in some kind of loop and at the end, it is showing this:

The page isn’t redirecting properly

An error occurred during a connection to drive.google.com.

   This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.

Apart from this, when I am trying to log into my Riot account in Valorant's website, it is ending up showing this:

Expected redirect cookie to exist

___

I have tried following:

  • Using Standard mode for tracking protection
  • Disabling tracking protection for these sites
  • Deleting Cookies & Cache
  • Reinstalling Firefox :(

It didn't help. Also, it started after I reinstalled Windows 11. I have yet to setup it, so I have not made any changes.

Also, everything is working fine in other browsers.

Firefox update from 111.0.1 to 112 set the dates of most cookies into the far future and keeps doing it

The last update made it look like all cookies were gone, except there are still there but the dates are wrong. 90%+ of them have their "last used" date set to "in 4,137 years" (see screenshot). Websites ask to accept cookies every time Firefox is restarted, which makes them basically useless. I have to use phone authentication each time I want to check gmail on my desktop because the site acts as if it had never seen me before.

Firefox's safe mode is the same. I ran the antivirus on the whole system and it found nothing. Windows clock works fine. Other Firefox functions seem to behave like normal. Other browsers are unaffected.

I filed a bug report and I'm thinking about trying the last extended support version to see if it still happens. I backed up the whole profile and I would like to keep all my data, including the cookies.

So, what can I do to try and get this fixed fast, and possibly keep my cookies, too? Thank you very much!

After updating to version 112 from 111.0.1 Firefox keeps forgetting logins and cookie settings on all websites. After closing and reopening the browser I have to sign in again and the websites will ask for cookie permissions.

I tried reverting to 111.0.1 and creating a new profile and it did not have the same issue. I also tried disabling all extensions in version 112, but that did not help.

I recently switched over to using an SSD, and I am trying to do everything I can to prevent unnecessary writing to that drive. I've already found instructions for moving the location of Firefox's Cache files to my secondary HDD, but I haven't been able to do the same for Cookies; they're still being stored on my C: drive, in the AppData folder.

Is it possible to change the path that Firefox uses to store Cookies? If it is possible, how?

Despite have used Firefox for many years, I am still not completely clear on why there are two separate areas for cookie settings, and how everything works together. In Cookies and Site Data: I check Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed. In Manage Exceptions, the listed domains I choose will not be deleted, but all other domains will. Correct? In History: I uncheck Always use private browsing mode, and I check Clear History when Firefox closes. In the Clear Recent History box, I uncheck Cookies and Site Settings. Question: Will be above choices in both areas get me where I want to be, which is retaining cookies for chosen protected sites, while deleting cookies for all others whenever Firefox is closed? If this is where a lot of people want to be, why are these choices presented in such a complicated way? If relevant, under Enhanced Tracking Protection I choose Custom, and leave all the boxes checked. The sites I choose to use seem to perform well with this option. Is this Security & Privacy area in Settings in need of reworking for ease and clarity?

Version 110 removed ALL cookies when clearing things for previous hour.

I was simply trying to clear things for the previous hour, and the process hung. Maybe the process hanging ended up corrupting the cookie-store.
