Hi,

since firefox v 43 i have to enable/allow cookies on a specific website to be able to see pictures.
with firefox v 42 and below i did not have to enable/allow cookies on that website to be able to see pictures.

i thought that its maybe a problem with an addon and disabled them all, but it did not helped.
so i tried a fresh portable version of ff 43 without any addons or so, but it stayed the same, i have to enable/allow cookies with it too.
i also tried a fresh portable verson of ff 44 nightly, but the same as with ff 43.

one thing i realized, that maybe could be helpful:
when i use noscript addon i see all domains of the scripts that are used on that page.
that website needs scripts from reddit.com to be able to show the pictures.
with cookies disabled there is no reddit.com on the noscript list, but after enabling cookies reddit.com appears in the noscript list.

what could be the problem and/or what i have to do to see the pictures on that website without enabling/allowing cookies.

p.s.
i do not post the name of that website, because its an adult website and it is surely not allowed to post it here.
it is a slideshow like gallery website


thank you for reading

What happens in Firefox Safe Mode? This is a testing mode.

Help ---> Restart Firefox with add ons disabled.

This is different than simply disabling your extensions.

Btw, thanks for not posting a link. You are right.

its still the same, i have to enable cookies.

like i wrote: even with fresh/new versions of firefox i have to enable cookies.

so i think that mozilla changed something in their code, that is different than in v. 42 that is causing the problem.

is there maybe a site that compares the changes between two firefox versions?

EDIT:
i found a site that shows the default preference differences between v43beta and v42:
http://cat-in-136.github.io/2015/11/dif ... fault.html

i also tried for testing to copy a fresh prefs.js from version 42 to a version 43 firefox, but it did not help.
same behaviour as with normal ff 43.
so it is maybe something deep in the code of firefox and can not be changed by normal users.

i know that i could post the url, but i do not post it because its an adult/nsfw website.
the website is not a website owned by reddit, it just use some scripts from reddit.

also it worked with ff 42 but now with ff 43 i have to enable cookies, so i thought that mozilla made changes, that i maybe could change back by myself to make it work like ff 42.
but it seems to be a deeper problem for what i could not identify the reason.
or it is a new "feature" of ff 43 and its impossible to change and will stay forever.

Default Cookie handling has not been changed in Firefox. If a website wants to set a cookie to record your visit you have a choice... allow the cookie or hit the road.... find a website that uses a different method of recording your visit like recording your IP address and you will feel better.

There are extensions for managing Cookies that you could use. I dont block cookies so I cant suggest one. Maybe someone will post a suggestion.

You might try using portable firefox to see if it happens. This is an easy to be certain it isn't be caused by profile issue.

OK, I can confirm, with the site in question, between FF 42 & FF 43, something changed pertaining to cookies.

by setting: network.cookie.cookieBehavior;2 - No cookies are allowed

FF 42 would display the pictures
FF 43 does not

(Further inspection will have to wait... Perhaps, Access to Web Storage (i.e. localStorage and sessionStorage) from third-party IFrames is now denied if the user has disabled third-party cookies (bug 536509)? If it is that, then perhaps the fact that FF 42 worked was only by mistake & had a cookie setting of '2' worked properly, it likely would not have worked before either.)

if it could be a bug that is fixed with v 43 than there is no chances it will change to old behaviour (like v42) with further versions.
seems like i have to deal with it.

thank you all for your help.

this thread can be marked as "solved"
