Cookies.sqlite deleted when closing Cyberfox

Post by alone » Tue Jun 26, 2018 3:55 am

Every time I close CF it deletes my cookies.sqlite file. It has the same issue if I start CF in safe mode. If I want to have all my cookies back I must replace the newly created cookies.sqlite with the cookies.sqlite.bak that I find in the profile directory.

I'm using Windows 7 with Cyberfox 52.8.0

Any idea about how to fix that (I'm becoming crazy) ?

Hi alone

Does it happen on a clean test profile, you could have changed a setting in the browser related to privacy that is deleting history/logins.

Thanks for your reply, I've nearly found the issue: everything works as it should in the clean text profile; if I import my original cookies.sqlite I have the usual issue. Must be the cookies.sqlite corrupted then.

Question: is there any tool to check where (which record/line) the file is corrupted?

Just to close (I hope) the loop:
I installed the extension "Cookies Export/import v 1.0.1" (be careful there are many with similar name)
I exported the cookies
I imported again the file I previously exported

So far everything seems to work as it should
