Hi! I do not want more cookies than "necessary". So I reject, make settings etc. And I clean them automatically when closing Firefox, just in case. On some sites that I visit very often, this turns out very tedious and timeconsuming. How to allow only necessary cookies and not the rest? With Privacy & Security, Cookies and Site Data, Manage Exceptions, I can allow or block cookies from specific sites. What do I allow when I choose Allow? Only the ticked ones or all marketing and other stuff even when these are not preticked as default? Or will the choices made during this session be saved? In the case of my bank and a couple of others, I would like to save my choices to be able to enter it a little faster. But cleaning at closing Firefox also deletes that, I suppose? How to save my choices without saving all cookies?

Is there any way to see what kind of cookies have been saved? I can see the number of cookies for each site under Manage Data, but how to see the type of cookie?

Firefox 122.0.1 on Linux Mint

I don't know in which version exactly it happened but a few weeks earlier i was able to edit cookies like we can on all other browsers, but today suddenly i cannot.

I expected it to be a simple double-click and i can edit the cookie key name or value but it doesn't let me edit, it opens the detailed view about that cookie. I looked EVERYWHERE and could NOT find any way to edit the cookies for hours and this is really frustrating as a dev. This is important to troubleshoot many kinds of bugs when I am developing an app.

Since last upgrade Firefox seems unable to access any wordpress sites.

Always says to enable cookies. I've done that but still not possible access.

Is Firefox now becoming so "secure" it is useless?

There are more and more web sites where Firefox just is no longer a viable browser.

There is no clear "ENABLE" cookies option to resolve this just pages on explanations about safety yada yada yada.

I just want a button that says ENABLE COOKIES so I don't have to constantly seek answers to use this browser on a particular web site.

As much as I hate Chrome I am finding it more useful now than FireFox

For several weeks now, whenever I close Firefox and shut down my iMac and open Gmail the next day, Gmail seems to forget which emails I have already read, and it marks many old emails as unread. Deleting the Google cache and cookies helps, but only temporarily. This problem doesn't seem to occur when using a different browser, such as Safari, or when using the built-in MacOS email client. Therefore, I'm thinking it's a buggy interaction between Firefox and Gmail. I didn't used to have this problem, so perhaps it's related to a Firefox update? Anyhow, I'm hoping someone can help. Thanks!

Just had firefox throw an error that I was running out of disk space for cookies. Open up the dialog, and was prompted that I had over 17,179,869,184GB of youtube cookies, and 5 GB of cookies for a site I was buying something from. Restarting firefox moved both down to a reasonable 304MB and the store to 207KB. I have never seen this one before.

The past few days when i've tried searching for certain pages i go to all the time they won't show up under "firefox suggest" then when i check my history for them the pages are just completely gone, today i checked my history for yesterday and even though i started browsing at 8:00 the history only went back to around 13:00 with all the pages before that completely gone, this also causes me to lose all the cookies as well.

Hello. Can someone please explain why Facebook asks for username/password every single time Firefox is restarted? I do not use cookie-cleaning extensions. They also send a 'login attempt' email and phone notification every time.

Tried with and without Facebook Container. Not using other Container/multi-account related extensions. My settings:

Standard Tracking Protection (allow/block exceptions: none) "Do not track" signal: Always Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed: disabled (no exceptions) History - Firefox will: Remember History

  1. 1 I set the Manage Data tab to 'Allow' for sites I want cookies saved for. This sets the http and https addresses for the sites I enter.
  2. 2 I set the same sites in the 'Manage Exceptions' tab so that these sites do not have their cookies deleted.
  3. 3 Save Settings
  4. 4 Close and re-open Firefox. All cookies are deleted.

I suspect this is a bug?

Cheers.

about.ef2a7dd5-93bc-417f-a698-142c3116864f.mozilla This ‘cookie’ (no size shown) has been showing up on my Firefox ‘manage website data’ since at least March ’23 and it will NOT delete. It may not be 'a real cookie' but I still can’t get rid of it.

When I searched online for that apparent address I found: https://gitlab.torproject.org/tpo/applications/tor-browser/-/issues/40175 The info near the top of that site’s page: Torbutton INFO: tor SOCKS: http://expyuzz4wqqyqhjn.onion/static/images/home/png/block-trackers@3x.png?h=70991bcb via --unknown--:cc55771ba6d6e8c6542066863a47e223 SOCKS is a username? And the ‘onion/hidden service’ address cannot be accessed unless using the Tor browser? So that seems a dead end for me.

I have seen 3 other people posting here in the past year about this particular cookie. hobro1 did an uninstall & still had to remove directories manually after getting some answers from several others. blazee decided – based on the answer given by jscher 2000 – that it probably wasn’t dangerous. mekishev 1 received an answer from cor-el that is incomprehensible to me, except for saying ‘it isn’t a real cookie’. I understand it may not 'a real cookie' but then why is it showing up in 'manage website data' where everything else is a cookie?

Can anyone help, please? I’m about to migrate over to a new computer and really don’t want to take this with me. I don’t like the fact that it persists, and that the cookies ‘keeper’ – SOCKS maybe? – is completely hidden.

Thanks much in advance for any assistance!

PS The only possible explanation I've come up with for how it got this cookie is when I was checking out some Firefox extensions; I didn’t even know what Tor was till trying to figure this out.

With my previous browsers--such as Chrome and Brave--I could automatically get into key sites without signing in every time. I thought this was due to cookies that my login passcodes. In the case of Google, it is by far the most challenging. Despite having a gmail account since early 2003, and using Google regularly since the '90s, it persists in asking me lots of questions and texting codes, etc.

My situation with Firefox is not working smoothly as it was when I used it for many years about a decade ago. I've already imported such browser data from these sites.

Can you help? Otherwise, I'll move on to Safari again.

Thanks,
