Re: silly google/youtube and now FF problem


[re: gomezz] [link to this post]
 
well consider what I said.
by default I reject all 3rd party cookies.
I accept first party cookies but only session cookies so they deleted everytime I restart the browser.
the only permanent cookies I have, I have specifically allowed for sites like tbb.

this is youtube's problem not mine, I have simply stopped logging into youtube with ff. Most videos I now watch anonymously on there so they can now track me even less due to their new policy.

for what its worth a clean cookie FF doesnt fix the problem, I tested now with both a new profile in this FF (no cookies) and on another machine with a freshly installed FF.

And what if you are down the library using a shared computer?

"and is not good to keep deleting them"

"Keep deleting them" suggests that something bad will happen if they are continually deleted.

Will something bad happen? That is why I asked the question!

obviously a different situation, but not relevant to me as my computer isnt shared with anyone.

Which is one reason why your original assertion is not universally and unconditionally true.

No it isn't. I regularly delete my cookies.

WILL ANYTHING BAD HAPPEN as you suggest? All I have to do is input stored usernames.

since I access many sites which need usernames that is quite a bad thing, I also lose saved preferences in some instances as well.

reinputting usernames and passwords is a bad thing to me.

But you didn't qualify it so universality was implied ... or should that be inferred? wink
