How to enable Cookies in Firefox
This guide will step you through the process of enabling Cookies in Firefox.
Click the menu button
In both Windows and OS X, the menu button will be in the top right-hand corner of Firefox.
Select the "Preferences"/"Options" menu item
If you're using Mac OS X, it will be called Preferences. If you are using Windows, it will be called Options.
The Settings screen will now appear.
Click the "Privacy" menu item
You are then taken to the Privacy settings.
Choose your preferred Cookies/History setting
Firefox groups the Cookies settings under the concept of "browser history". In order to change your browser's cookies policy, you have to configure the browser history settings as well.
When you click on the "Firefox will:" drop-down menu, you will see three choices.
- Remember history Typically (especially if you are already following this guide!) you want to enable cookies in Firefox by selecting this option. It will also cause Firefox to keep a list of the sites you visit in Browser History
- Never remember history Alternatively, you can disable cookies altogether by selecting this option. Firefox will also not keep a list of the sites you have visited in your Browser History.
- Use custom setting for history will allow you more fine-grained control about what Firefox allows and remembers.
You now have the choice of enabling or disabling certain history features, including form history, browser history and most relevant: whether or not to Accept cookies from sites.
You also have some options regarding blocking third-party cookies if you want to configure that too.
You can also configure how long Firefox will keep the cookies it sets.
Close the Preferences/Options tab
Once you have configured your preferences, you can simply close this tab and continue using Firefox.
Congratulations, you just configured Cookies in Firefox. Click here to check if Cookies are enabled.
