Hello,

I am wondering if Firefox will help users auto opt out of cookies. By this I mean will Firefox implement a feature that the user can turn on in the settings that automatically deleted cookies that are not needed even if they select that they want to opt in or check the cookies that they are opting into and accidentally opt into ones they don't need to. I believe this could be achieved with machine learning that looks at the cookies that are required by websites and the cookies that are more than what are required. Is Mozilla thinking about adding this future or will it in the future? I believe it could change the industry.

Hi Mozilla community,

The Developer Tools -> Storage -> Cookies pane shows cookies currently being stored by Firefox.

If I close my browser, these cookies are automatically deleted. However, if I follow the steps on [1], the cookies are still there, and don't get deleted. *Why?*

Thanks in advance!

Steps to reproduce:

- Start a new Firefox session
- Open Developer Tools -> Storage -> Cookies and see that the list is empty
- Go to youtube.com and click Accept All on the cookies popup
- Developer Tools -> Storage -> Cookies now shows a cookie from YouTube, as per the attached screenshot
- Go to Settings->Privacy & Security->Cookies and Site Data -> Clear Data -> Clear
- Go back to Developer Tools -> Storage -> Cookies and click on the refresh icon
- The YouTube cookie is still there
- However either of the following actions will correctly delete this cookie:

1) closing firefox (with Always Use Private Browsing Mode enabled) 2) manually deleting the cookie from the list in Developer Tools -> Storage -> Cookies

Win 7 Home Premium Firefox Version 101.0.1

'Privacy & Security'->'Cookies and Site Data', 'Clear Data.'

When 'Clear Now,' Cached Web Content; is clicked, it does not zero out. (It used to clear completely).

The browser webpage has been refreshed, the browser closed and reopened, and the computer restarted but the cache does not reset.

This issue started on the morning (Pacific time) of June 26-Is this a known glitch or am I missing a detail?

I've enabled 'Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed' to delete the cookies and site data when I close Firefox, but I would like to add some exceptions (mostly mail site). Every time I add the exception through Manage Exceptions... button and then I close Firefox, when I restart Firefox, the exception is gone. Is this expected? I don't think so. If so, it's not clear in the UI, as the button is just next to the mentioned checkbox.

Version: Firefox 103.0 (64-bit) SO: macOS Monterey 12.5

First, check "DeIete cookies and sitedata when Firefox is closed" from Privacy & Security in the settings.

After that, register the Google domain as an exception with "Manage Exceptions".

When I restart Firefox after logging in to Google once, the Google registration information disappears even though I registered the exception, and I have to log in again.

However, there are some sites where my login information will not disappear if I register as an exception.

How can I prevent my Google login information from disappearing even if I restart with the above settings?

Thank you.

I would like Firefox to remember exceptions and store specific cookies that I need for the Microsoft authenticator, and other two-stage logins. Whatever setting I choose (untick delete cookiex and sitedata, assign websites to manage exceptions etc) upon closing Firefox everything is deleted, always. This means I can't use any authenticator to remember me when I want it to do so.

I used a third party cookie extension (Cookie AutoDelete) to whitelist some sites and it worked perfectly fine until an apparent recent update by Firefox. I am on Firefox 101.0.1 on Mac.

Any ideas?

Hi there; I like Firefox and I always recommend it to others, please keep it the way it was, simply good privacy and easy to use and work with. It used to was possible to clear cookies for a specific website but now it's gone! and I can't figure out how can I delete/clear cookies for a specific website! I think even if there is a way to do this, you've made it so complicated! it was easy, just click on setting icon next to website address in address bar and clear cookies! once I tried this and it took me to other pages and ended up to clearing all my cookies in entire Firefox! and this made difficulties for me to find all my username and passwords and enter them one by one...

Please make it simple as before. Thanks.
