In Settings → Privacy & Security → History → Settings..., I have enabled the automatic clearing of "Site settings" when Firefox closes. However, the clearing of all site settings causes the clearing of all my HTTPS certificate error exceptions (Settings → Privacy & Security → Certificates → View Certificates... → Servers). Is there a way to make some exceptions for the clearing of site settings? I would like the site settings of a few websites to be preserved, while deleting the site settings of all other sites.

That is not possible, clearing "Site settings" clears all exceptions and other site settings.

  • clearing "Site settings" clears exceptions for cookies, images, pop-up windows, and software installation and exceptions for passwords and other website specific data
  • using "Clear history when Firefox closes" in Firefox 102+ honors exceptions and keeps cookies with an allow exception, previous versions removed all cookies
