Why does Firefox share data between google domains even with all privacy options on?

I have noticed that when I manually log in into accounts.google.com with no prior cookies in the browser and no association with a google account prior to that, it automatically logs me into sites like youtube.com, even with the strictest cookie policies (tried with Strict, custom+cross-site and custom+third-party). I do not particularly mind privacy wise since I'll log into them with the same account anyways, but as far as I understood, there should be absolutely no way this should happen. Cookies should be isolated by domain, I have uBlock Origin installed which prevents cookie sharing between domains by setting some CNAME records in subdomains (Uncloak canonical names), and afaik Firefox does not automatically read the google account cookies and share them around - if it did, that would be even more serious. So what is happening here and how can I change that? This seems to be a serious issue that I'm honestly not comfortable with out of principle since I chose the strictest settings.

I use Firefox to access our company's online testing site. Sometimes a customer will call us to update their name on our system. I go to the customer's record on the website and make the change. Once I save the record, I could go back to that customer access their testing data and download a certificate which downloads as a pdf. With the previous version of Firefox, the certificate would download and the changes I made were shown on the new certificate download. In the new version (89.0) the new download does not show the changes I made. I assume this is because the cookies or cache are not updating properly. Can you give me some idea of what to try to fix this.

I performed the same routine in Chrome and it works perfectly and also in Edge.

I know that clearing browser cookie regularly is a good practice, but I am a bit curious if clearing out those session cookies is the same as if you log out of all the accounts manually.

Because logging out manually will make both local and server side session cookies invalid, thus log out safely.

Meanwhile clearing browser cookies only delete local side session cookie, while the session cookie on the server remains. Which means the session is still valid.

So do I clear browser cookies or log out manually if I want to log out of all accounts?

Hi,

I'm developping a custom tool in order to automatically clean my cookies from several websites. For example, I would like to automatically remove cookies from twitter.com every time I launch my tool. I'm under Win10x64, firefox v89, tool developped in python.

To do this, once firefox is closed, my tool go in my profile folder, access to cookies.sqlite and delete row associated to twitter.com

-> DELETE from moz_cookies WHERE host == '.twitter.com';

The database is saved, no more "twitter" in my cookies.sqlite file, and the tool ensures there is no cookies.sqlite-wal or cookies.sqlite-shm files left.

After that, when I open again twitter, I am no longer connected to my session, but I got an error which seems to be related to cookies (see screenshot).

Moreover, when I oppenup the firefox cookies manager, there is still twitter cookies in the list, but 0 cookies associated.

Where is my mistake ? Can you help me solve my problem ? Thanks

Hi, When I set up the option to delete all cookies when we close firefox, Firefox transform a persistant cookies into a session cookies. This is not wat the option means. When the checkbox is not set, the persistant cookies is there.

I think it is a bug because the option is not about transforming a persistant cookies into a session cookies, but to clear all cookies (session and persistant) and data when we close firefox.

Hi!

My Problem is, whenever I want to add a bookmark (favorite) to the bookmarks toolbar with active logins like - gmail/twitch/twitter etc, it won't save the bookmark. It will save any bookmark when I'm not logged in but this is really weird. What has changed and why can't I do this? Is there any way to add bookmarks with active logins to a toolbar? I might have to switch browsers if not :(

I search help from guidehttps://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions but nothing is suitable for my issue.

Firefox 78.10.1 esr 64 bit Windows 10.0.19041.985

This question was originally asked here, https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/971100 , but has since been archived. YouTube videos load when not logged in, but will not load when logged into my YouTube account. They produce the following error:

  • An error occurred. Please try again later. (Playback ID: [random generated hash])

The advice offered in the cited Mozilla Support article assumes the problem is with Firefox, and had users delete their entire SQL-Lite cookie database, even though users reported that the error persisted after a clean install. Yes, it can sometimes be a cookie database issue, but this time, MAY 2021, it's a problem with YouTube's ad loader. This has happened before [1]. The work around until they fix it is to click on any suggested video on the same page. As soon as it starts to load, hit the browser's back button, and the error producing video will load.
