Can someone please tell me why Firefox has remove Page Info on the right click?

Sense Firefox doesn't have a setting to set all cookies to "Allow for Session", I have been doing it by my self on every page I see. I right click, select Page info, go to permissions then change "Set Cookie" from default, which is "Allow" to "Allow for Session".

I read their update page before I updated, and no where on the page do they mention removing page info and for what reason.

Does anybody have an idea why?

From my understanding is that "Allow" allows cookies to track your activities even if you're not on their page, and "Allow for Session" meant that they would only follow when you're on their page, they can't track all your activities. Was I wrong in understanding that?

"Allow" versus "Allow for Session" relates to the lifespan of a cookie -- whether Firefox honors a future expiration date (persistent cookie) or not (session-only cookie). It is not related to how or where that cookie can be accessed by the site. That is covered by the "cross-site" or "third party" cookie settings under Tracking Protection settings.

User interface gurus believe it's necessary to reduce clutter on the right-click context menus, and "less used" items are being removed. I am helpless to stop that.

That said, you can still call up the Page Info dialog in Firefox 88+ using two of the three earlier methods:

  • Ctrl+i
  • (menu bar) Tools > Page Info
    On Windows, tap the Alt key or F10 to activate the menu bar temporarily

See: Firefox Page Info window


In a different thread, you wrote:

I wish that Firefox would make an options that allows user to set all webpage to "Allow for Session". What a privacy saver would that be.

Well, in fact, I've been using that for years.

The setting used to be called "Keep until: I close Firefox" and now it's labeled "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed".

With that turned on, Firefox ignores the cookie lifetime the site requests, which can be over a year, and instead sets all cookies to expire when you close Firefox (end of your session). If there's a site that annoys you with extra two-factor authentication after each Firefox restart, you can give them an Allow exception to work around it. There also are some sites that malfunction with this setting, such as Outlook mail, so you can create an Allow exception for those, too.

Thanks for the quick reply Jscher2000.

Does this mean that either "Allow" or "Allow for Session" get the same information and there is no restriction either I'm on their page?

From my understanding is that "Allow" allows cookies to track your activities even if you're not on their page, and "Allow for Session" meant that they would only follow when you're on their page, they can't track all your activities. Was I wrong in understanding that?
