Question about Mozilla Firefox

1 Answer

Can't Uncheck "Always clear my private data when..."

I can uncheck it in a current session, but as soon as I close the browser, it comes back up checked again... like it is not saving my settings.
This becomes a pain because every time I am searching for a name that I have searched for before, rather than it automatically popping up from a previous session, I need the type in everything new all over again. Firefox has only been this way for the revision 3 that I am running.

I can't close out of facebook to allow someone else to log onto their account. When I go to sign it, it automatically opens my account. What do I do.


To log out u need to go to the account button on the top right, then click log out. Once u do that it should take you back to the login page where your login information will be saved. Just uncheck the save my password box and have someone else log in.

Hope this helps you out,

Cannot access yahoomail


Kindly find below the solution:

How to clear cookies temporarily:
1. Tools > Clear Private Data > Uncheck all but cookies > Clear Private Data Now or
2. Tools > Options > Advanced > Network > Offline Storage (Cache): “Clear Now” or
3. Tools > Options > Privacy > Cookies: “Show Cookies” (specific problem sites)

If you have tried those resolves and are still not satisfied, try A different route:

Right click Start Button > Properties > Select Start menu (not classic) > Apply > Ok

Type %APPDATA% into search box at the bottom of the open start menu.

Goto “roaming” > Mozilla > FireFox > Profiles > should only be one folder left to choose.

(or address: C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\profile folder)

Select cookies.sqlite (and cookies.txt if present) > Delete

I cannot sign out of Yahoo. The web site is VERY slow.


What browser are you using? Internet Explorer? Firefox?

If IE, Click on Tools, Click on Delete Browsing History, then Click on Delete cookies... then Click Yes.

If Firefox, Click on Tools, Click on Clear Private Data, Uncheck all boxes, except Cookies, then Click Clear Private Data Now.

Yahoo (and almost all other websites) use cookies to keep track of details of your web session. One of those that Yahoo uses allows a user to stay logged in for an extended time (days?, weeks?). Once the cookies are cleared you should be able to logout. Try
this and let me know what happens. Binary Bob

There is a way to clear out web session details each time you exit out of either IE or Firefox. Lets try the above first, then we can set up a more permanent way for this to work for you. Binary Bob
