Cookies are enabled by firefox in default. But many of do some experimental works with the settings in firefox, we tend to end up in a bad situation. 😛 So as long as cookies are not enabled in firefox, you can’t access most of the social networking sites and other sites in which you want to login. Because without the information encrypted in cookies, the site can’t let you in.


To check or change your settings:

  1. At the top of the Firefox window, Edit menu >> Preferences >> Select the Privacy panel.
  2. Choose “Use custom settings for history” in “firefox will“.

Check mark Accept cookies from sites to enable Cookies, and uncheck it to disable them.

You can also choose how long your browser should store your cookies, “Choose how long cookies are allowed to be stored” :
  • Keep until: they expire: Each cookie will be removed when it reaches its expiration date, which is set by the site that sent the cookie.
  • Keep until: I close Firefox: The cookies that are stored on your computer will be removed when Firefox is closed.
  • Keep until: ask me every time: Displays an alert every time a website tries to send a cookie, and asks you whether or not you want to store it.
