Although, the cookie exceptions for 17.0.1 is now working as in 16.0.2, I would like to put a copy of this file somewhere safe so if Foxfire updates and I loose the cookie exceptions, I don't have to re-create a new cookie exception list. I've looked in several places; user, me, apdata, and can't identify which file changes; Vista makes the search for the changed file (when I close 17.0.1) a little difficult.

So after this new stupid youtube update, it for whatever reason logged me out of my gmail and my youtube accounts, even though i have it set to always have me logged in. when i type in the correct e-mail and password, it redirects me to a page that says "Your browser's cookie functionality is turned off. Please turn it on." So, i came here for help to see if there was a problem, and there was (yay google) and i followed the steps to every solution that i could find. Unfortunately, none of them worked in the slightest, and im stuck out from my e-mail. i can access my youtube and gmail perfectly fine at school, but when i come home it seems to. yes, i already opened up the firefox > options > privacy and did all of that. i deleted all my cookies, enabled 3rd party cookies and disabled it multiple times to see if it would fix anything. sadly to no avail. Now that none of that worked, i come here asking for help one last time :( if anyone has a solution to this, it would be greatly appreciated. preferably something that hasnt been repeated in other posts about this, because ive probably already read it :\

Everything was working fine under Win8Pro Release Preview and FF (17?)...

Did full Win7Pro SP1 x64 install.

Installed FF 18.0.1, no add-ons; all defaults except turned on "do not track" and changed cookie handling as described:

Logging in to my Hotmail/Outlook.com account (MS upgraded me to Outlook.com in the middle of my troubleshooting) I can access my Hotmail People (Contacts) without difficulty.

I change FF Options -> Privacy -> "Keep cookies until" from "they expire" to "ask every time."

When I go to "Hotmail People", I click on "Allow" for every instance I'm asked to set or modify a cookie.

The content of the "People" page (the contacts themselves) never loads. I just get the "please wait" circling-dots.

I return to the Hotmail "Mail" page (which still works fine, except when addressing a message).

I change FF Options -> Privacy -> "Keep cookies until" from "ask every time" to "they expire."

When I go (back) to Hotmail People, the contacts load fine.

Shouldn't the two scenarios be the same? I prefer to manually handle cookie handling, so this feature is important to me.

Thanks!

PS: With the exception of addressing in Mail; Mail, Calendar and SkyDrive all seem to work fine regardless of which cookie setting is used.

I pretty much know how to configure Firefox to "accept" or "reject" cookies. Am also aware that one can address the issue of 3rd party cookies.

I am not sure, however, if it is possible to have Firefox reject all First-Party cookies that are not "session" cookies.

In other words I don't want to accept any Third Party Cookies, and I don't want to accept any First Party cookies--unless they are "Session Only".

Can this be done?

Am using Firefox 18.0.1 and Windows 7

I read the first suggested article before posting this question, but it wasn't specific enough so I was forced to comment, "This article fails to specify use of the backed up file in the event of a system/HDD reformat." The article reveals that the profile folder name must match (match WHAT in this scenario?), but does not reveal if any of the files within the profile have that specific identification embedded in them [which might result in logical error or error messages, and failure to accomplish desired goal]. It also does not say if all I want to do is back up the cookies, whether or not will backing up cookies.sqlite and placing it in the new default profile after the system reinstallation/hard drive reformat work.

Let me get more general in the event I'm not communicating what I wish to: I don't want to use a confusing, perhaps badly-written Firefox add-on to do this. I have a few secure sites I visit that give me a really hard time when I update or reformat, like my bank and NetFlix. Both parties CLAIM that I am "attempting to access your account from a different computer," but their security protocol writers are MORONS and liars, because it is NOT a different computer; instead of storing the STATIC MAC address of my computer, which DOES identify the specific computer attempting access, they store a number of different bits of data which are VOLATILE and DYNAMIC [in cookies], and I have to go through this bullcrap of accessing my email account and entering in a verifying one-time-use code to get to my own [epithet for solid waste matter]. So, will I be able to do what I want just by manually backing up cookies.sqlite and placing it in the appropriate directory when needed? It should be a very simple matter for these idiot security experts to query systems for the MAC addresses or to get users to supply it manually (it's easy to find), but NO! That would make SENSE, be EASY, and MORE EFFECTIVELY MANAGE THE SECURE NETWORKS. My idiot bank does not even allow the use of special characters necessary for the creation of sophisticated passwords [that would take over a quintillion years to hack via a Brute Force attack].

This is not the ff remember passwords. It is the website provided login with the remember me checkbox. It has worked in the past (pre win8 and earlier versions of ff....definitely not since win8, but cannot tie directly to ff18) except when I ran ccleaner which would somehow remove the 'cookie".

I have played with all the FF options I can relate to the problem without success.

The FF remember me works, but I have to type in the user name before it will enter the password.

Using Firefox 19.0.2 (Windows XP SP3).

Is there some way to allow Firefox to show ONLY a list of current session cookies while in private browsing mode, rather than a list of the normal cookies?

First of all, basic cookie handling appears to be working fine for me, in both normal mode and in private browsing: Cookies set during private browsing are deleted as expected when exiting Firefox or when toggling back to normal browsing.

HOWEVER...

I am unable to SEE the new cookies that are added during a private browsing session.


If I start Firefox normally, toggle to private browsing mode, and then go to Options> Show Cookies, the window opens showing a long list of my "normal" cookies.

Previously, the cookies window would appear to be EMPTY when starting a private browsing session. After browsing a while, and then rechecking the list I would see only the cookies set during that private browsing session.


NOW, during a private browsing session, when I recheck the cookies list I see only my normal cookies, and NONE of the new session cookies appear in the list (the same cookies are shown as before switching to private mode).

I have tried starting Firefox in Safe Mode, with no change in behavior. I have also tried disabling add-ons, with no change.

List of add-ons installed:

Adblock Pluss 2.2.3 BetterPrivacy 1.6.8 Ghostery 2.9.3 Googlebar Lite 4.9.7 IE View 1.5.6 Microsoft .NET Framework Assistant 1.3.1 PrivacyChoice TrackerBlock 2.2 Status-4-Evar 2013.02.16.23 Bookmark Favicon Changer 1.74 (disabled) CheckPlaces 2.6.2 (disabled)


Suggestions?

Thanks!
