    Issue with firefox 86.0.1


    I noticed now when I go to facebook, outlook, google mail etc that cross site cookies these parties can use cross site cookies and site data while you are on this site. I never see that on earlier versions of Firefox. I never gave it permissions it did automatically. If I block all third party cookies under enhanced tracking protection I don't see that permissions. Can someone tell me if it is safe to leave that permission there even though I did not set permissions. Is it normal to see this? Here is a screen shot of the permission.

    I'm not seeing that on mine. What are your other settings?

    You might want to try Firefox multi account containers...... for "trackers" Firefox Multi-Account Containers – Get this Extension for 🦊 Firefox (en-US)

    Have you tried clearing all cookies to see if that does it?

    You can safely enable all "tracker" related protection settings, there should be global option in setting page that applies to all sites.
    Tracker options are there to protect your privacy, disabling trackers should not cause any issues with visiting websites.

    3rd party cookies is not the same thing but you can disable them as an additional layer to privacy, some sites may no longer work properly usually when you try to log in or use site features.

    In any case if some site does not work you can adjust "per site" setting likely within screenshot in your post.

    Yes I have cleared all cookies. I went to custom settings and blocked all third party cookies and I don't see that permission anymore. Tracking content only in private windows should that be for all windows? Here is a screen shot of my settings

    "Tracking content" is setting for trackers
    "Cookies" is setting for (3rd party) cookies.

    "private windows" applies only to "in-private" search, therefore not good, you want to disable trackers for all browsing sessions.

    cookies option is your personal choice, keep blocking 3rd party cookies or accept them.
    if some site breaks, you can either adjust specific site or enable 3rd parties cookies here.

    Thank you for your help zebal and bobby. I just noticed if I block all tracking content when I go to ctv.ca the videos will not play. If I have blocking tracking content to just private windows it will play the videos but not in all windows it will not play any tv show

    This is one of several reasons why I use the portable edition of Firefox in concert with Sandboxie Plus (free), in spite of the fact that the
    (also free) Firefox Multi-Account Containers plugin is already pretty good on its own. Sandboxie lets me run multiple instances of Firefox portable, concurrently in such a particular way that each instance actually is a separate copy of my C:\FirefoxPortable folder. Each copy uses its own unique set of addon combinations and settings/configurations to accomodate various types of websites that would otherwise be broken, or that might unexpectedly interfere in some way the vagueries of which could eventually end up wrecking certain stuff. Sandboxie protects all files and folders, also including each copy of my portable Firefox. It does this by using a technique called isolation, or sandbox technology. Simply put, it keeps file and folder modifications, deletions, and creations separate in a sandbox, i.e. by storing these changes of the data in a different location, that represents the sandboxed environment, in which you can choose to run normal desktop apps just like you can choose to run them outside of that environment─like normal.

    That said, if you know the basics of how to use NTFS junctions (i.e., by using the MKLINK /J command in a command prompt, or much better yet, using the free Link Shell Extension), then you could also decide to use the Forced Folders option in the sandbox settings of Sandboxie─to force your portable Firefox to run sandboxed each time when it gets launched via a separate folderpath that contains the junction, but not when it gets launched via its normal folderpath. For that to work, just create a new folder and create a junction in it, in such a way that the target of this junction points to your C:\FirefoxPortable folder or to whichever the folder that your copy of portable Firefox is stored in. So, for example, if the new folder is C:\FirefoxPortable - sandboxed
    , then if the junction inside it is named FirefoxPortable and the target of the junction is set to C:\FirefoxPortable, the path to add to the list (found under Sandbox Settings | Program Start | Forced Folders) will be C:\FirefoxPortable - sandboxed. It's not half complicated IMO, but getting used to Sandboxie might take some effort.

    There's also a little 'trick' to set your sandboxed Firefox portable as the default browser, that I have described in my post:
    Does anyone still use tune up utilities like CCleaner?

    In essence, my browsing strategies borrow on some of the same key concepts of this kind of stuff:
