You can create an exception for uBO as well: see http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=3034189.


I changed all profiles to "Remember history" from "Use custom settings for history" which allows the user to only accept cookies from selected sites. With Firefox 56 and before WebEx extensions the former settings all worked and uBlock Origin updated the filtersets correctly. Changing to "Remember history" allows proper updating of the filtersets.

Will there be an update of uBlock Origin to correct this problem, or is it strictly a Firefox 57.x issue? On following the link above, there are other extensions with the same problem concerning indexedDB storage. I would like to be able to control which sites are allowed to set cookies.

no general firefox or uBlock problem, try a new profile or disable/uninstall questionable installed security software.

The uBlock problem has been negated. There is a flaw in Firefox 57.x and uBlock Origin concerning indexedDB storage. Read the bug reports in the link provided above by gorhill. [url]http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=3034189[/url

The filtersets now update correctly. I have to accept cookies for that to work.

I'm having a problem updating filters too but I'm using a fresh install of Pale Moon Portable 26.5.0, and uBlock Origin 1.15.11b6, with no other add-ons, but no filters update. The circles just spin forever. And it's not blocking anything.

You might try asking this on the PaleMoon forums. (Yes, there is a thread about the extension here but you're not using Firefox.)
