Website logins on Firefox ESR - MarkF - 10-16-2020

Hi All,

Wonder whether anyone can help with this.  I have Mobian installed on my Pinephone 3GB/32GB, and I've noticed a peculiarity with Firefox ESR when I log in to the Guardian website.  It seems to lose my login and password as I progress further into the site, and specifically, if I try to look at the comments to an article, I'm asked to log in again.  But when I do, entering my login id and password, it has no effect - it still keeps asking me to login.  And then, if I come back up to the first page of the site, it's restored my login.

The other browser, Web, doesn't have this problem and everything works fine, albeit very slowly.

Any observations/help welcome.

Thanks, Mark

Not sure if this would help, but I have had better experience with the Firefox ESR ever since I created a Firefox account. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-accounts-managing-account-data
Even if you don't sync all your devices, (it was a bit much to have on my phone all the same bookmarks across the devices!) the web-surfing experience seem much more stable.

Can you evaluate this with a new profile? Ensuring no add-ons are installed, or Enhanced Tracking Protection features are enabled (especially Cookies).

Code:

Using a Firefox Account should be immaterial.
