What is firefox's cookie limit and how does it handle corrupt cookies store

I've been digging into an issue about the "A web page is slowing down your browser," and it seems that the most frequent explanation for this is corrupt cookies/cache. However, the issue wasn't repeatable on my site. After some digging, I found that its possible for a corrupt `cookies.sqlite` if the max file size has been reached and a suggestion that FF automatically resets this `cookies.sqlite` store when this happens.

I suspect that this issue happened when the user maxed out their cookies, causing a corrupt `cookies.sqlite` file. Then, when they restarted FF, their store had been cleared and they had no problems.

However, I cannot find any documentation about FF behavior when in handling corrupt cookies or resetting the `cookies.sqlite` file. I'm looking for some concrete answers. What is FF's cookie store limit, and what is its behavior (if any) when the store is maxed?

Worth mentioning, this was FF on Linux. I don't know the specs beyond that.

I need to allow some websites to store cookies, all other cookies are getting deleted every time I close FireFox. There is a dialogue "Cookies and Website-Data"-->"Permissions" that lets me whitelist specific websites. Cookies of these websites should be excepted from the deletion when closing FireFox.

The problem is that everytime I close firefox the whitelisted websites disappear... I had this problem already with Version 69, its still there in 70...

Thanks in advance for any hints...

If I start Firefox and immediately go to manage cookies, I find all sorts of cookies that are still there since the last time I manually cleared out cookies. Manually clearing cookies is very tedious, since I need to keep cookies from those sites that won't let me log in without a code sent via email, phone, or text. These sites often seem to require some third-party cookies, which are difficult to identify.

In the past I was able to keep the required cookies by setting cookies to be kept "until they expire" and doing nothing in that session but logging into the site I wanted. Then, at the next session I would set cookies to be kept "until I close Firefox" and immediately closing and then reopening Firefox.

This no longer seems to work. I'm using Firefox 60.0.2 (64-bit). I think I've had the problem for more than a couple of months, but I'm not sure.

If there is some other way to keep the cookies I want and lose the others, I'd appreciate that information. I saw something about "persistent storage" in view page info, but did not understand the references.

In Firefox 60 when I go to delete individual cookies I can no longer use the "delete" key on the keyboard. This was always useful for quickly deleting any unwanted cookies, scroll using the arrow then delete. Now I have to ctrl+click, scroll and click remove. One mis-click and they all get unselected and you have to start again. How to re-enable the delete key?

Every once in a while, I go back and try something that worked in older versions of FF -- accepting some cookies and not accepting others.

In the current version, 59.0.3, I go to options, security and scroll down, I've added yahoo to my Exceptions to "allow" rather than "allow for session" and then set the general setting "keep until they expire". Now, this setup seems to be a way to whitelist only those sites I want to allow cookies, expiring others when I close FF -- as that's the most control I now have, the "ask every time" being gone. However, when I close FF and re-open, it hasn't kept the yahoo cookies as the exception implies it should.

How can I customize which cookies stay past the session and which don't?

I don't know if "googleadservices" is an uninvited addon or virus but it inserts itself at the start of any webpage searched for. It effectively prevents the web page from opening at all, der! I cannot find any way of removing it, and ineffective advice has driven me to uninstall Firefox out of frustration, which of course is not what I want to do. From what I can see its been around for a number of years, so why is it still an issue in Feb. 2018?

I finally upgraded to Win10 and to my surprise Firefox 57 does not clear cookies from C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\ocy0d10c.default\cache2\entries

[Note folder name may vary from ocy0d10c.default per machine]

Why doesn't Mozilla fix this? I have to manually delete them regularly. I found this folder first using CCleaner, which regularly does clear this folder via the clear cookies option. At the time I discovered it it had some 13,000 files. This slowed and slows my computer considerably if I don't keep up.

It would be very helpful not to have to manually check this folder and remove cookies, if the FF tool for clearing cookies would please incorporate this folder? Thanks.

This keeps happening about twice every year. I haven't made any changes to the mozilla settings other than to fix it the last time.

[Your initial question field cut off the quote I tried to give you to locate the problem. I hope that what remains is enough for you to find it.]

1--I was trying to find a way to make FF handle cookies the way I need it to. I clicked around in your help file until I arrived at the user submission quoted above -- which is *exactly* the same as my problem. When I clicked on it, FF said "page not found." Very frustrating.

2--Please tell me how to have FF prompt me about storing *all levels of* cookies involved in a web site on my computer. I have already tried various settings on your Options-Privacy page (including those in your help file) *and* the "View Page Info" page. When I use the settings you suggest, many web sites will not function correctly, even if I'm not ordering anything or making other kind of choices, etc.

Internet Explorer functioned exactly as I need it to, i.e.: I set it to prompt me before storing both first-party and third-party cookies. When it displayed the prompt, the options were to allow or not allow (for now), plus you could tell it always to apply your allow/not allow choice to that web site in the future.

Please tell me how to make Firefox behave like that -- of course, it doesn't have to be exactly the same buttons, etc., but the function has to be the same. As it is now, it seems you can't stop Firefox from allowing cookies, or certain types of them; I hope that's not true.

3--Lately I've been noticing ads coming up in separate Firefox instances (additional Firefox icon(s) displayed when you Alt+Tab between open programs). One of them even read my IP address. I am very upset about this. How do I turn that off? I looked in your help file and there's nothing about this. (I use a major antivirus program and keep it strictly up to date and run scans often.)

Thank you for your help.
