Lost all cookies?


Website cookies......Mozilla doesn't save them anymore, and all I did was delete the tmp directory. It's not saving new ones.

Any ideas? I have about 300 bookmarks.

Go to options > privacy > cookies and make sure the check box for allowing cookies is checked first

Maybe you somehow got rid of your cookies.txt file, so it can't make any new ones?

It should be in you username/appdata/mozilla/firefox/profiles/randomstring .
If it's no there, create a file called cookies.txt and paste in:
PHP Code:
# HTTP Cookie File
# http://www.netscape.com/newsref/std/cookie_spec.html
# This is a generated file!  Do not edit.
# To delete cookies, use the Cookie Manager.

Moz has always been buggy about this, one of my big gripes.

On an uninstall, it never deletes all of these files, and they get corrupted on a bad power down.

Good luck fixing it, I've never been able to [even with reinstalls!]

Maybe you could reinstall Mozilla in a different directory?
