Firefox for IOS always ask to accept cookie policy even when cookie policy has been accepted.

On all my IOS devices (iPhone 6, iPhone 5C, iPad 2), I have to continuosly accept the cookies notification despite already accepting the policy.

Anyone have any ideas how to overcome this?

That notification is coming from the website, not Firefox.

Usually sites remember that they showed you that cookie message by setting a cookie, which Firefox sends back to the site with every subsequent request. I think since the site recognizes you, Firefox must be sending cookies to the site, so it's not clear to me why it is confused about having already shown you that message.

On a desktop system, I would suggest clearing all cookies for that site in case they are corrupted or inconsistent, but I'm not sure how one does that on iOS.

I will add that you can clear cookies for ALL sites using the settings dialog: Clear browsing history in Firefox for iOS. Might be worth a try if this is making you crazy.
