saved choises keep getting erased

Post by mariner133 »

I use Firefox
I do not delete cookies when my browser closes
I do not flush from my cache

However, lately I keep having to reset site permissions.
No, I dont use CC Cleaner

Why is this happening

First of all, thank you very much for having done your research before posting :) (even though cookies and cache managed from inside Firefox shouldn't affect extensions).

You don't use CC Cleaner, but have you got any similar "security/privacy" software which claims to cleanup your online traces?

Are you by any means set Firefox to use private browsing windows everywhere?

What permissions and what do you mean "reset"?

What version of Firefox are you using?
What version of NoScript are you using?
When your permissions get lost, do you see any related messages in the Browser Console? (Ctrl-Shift-J, select "Multiprocess")

Do you use browser settings to disable IndexedDB and/or extension storage.sync?

You should be able to upload your screenshot to an external image hosting site or cloud storage and link it here.

I wasn't aware of any GUI for that. I guess this means you have a Firefox Account and are using Firefox Sync? If so, see e.g. the Sync mega-thread starting from somewhere on page 7 or 8 - viewtopic.php?t=6056&start=105

I have read the other posts...

Is Firefox sync causing this, then ?
