Description

6 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:15.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/15.0
Build ID: 20120808131812

Steps to reproduce:

Create a new profile
On the Options --> Privacy page uncheck everything but Accept Cookies (Third party cookies should also be unchecked).
Set Keep Until to "ask me every time"
Go to your Facebook account and sign in.  Accept all cookies.
Click on the notifications button.


Actual results:

No notifications are shown.


Expected results:

Notifications should be shown.

Note that if you change Keep Until to either "they expire" or "I close Firefox" the notification button (and the other buttons that don't) will work.

A couple of other notes:
This also happens with Fx 14 and happens with Linux (not certain if fix works there)
This could be an site issue but I am not certain how to tell.

Also note that "Ask me every time" causes another problem at Facebook
(windows always, sometimes with linux)
Whenever I try to post a new message I get redirected to here:
http://www.facebook.com/ajax/metacompos ... rTourStart
This is a blank page. I can reply to post without a problem.

Again, changing Keep Until solves the problem.

I solved it in Firefox 16 on Linux (Fedora 17) using: Edit -> Preference -> Privacy:
Firefox will: use custom settings for history
Accept cookies [Exceptions]: add "facebook.com" without "www"
Keep until: ask me everytime

So it seems to be a domain issue, no idea if it's facebook at fault or firefox

I also have this problem.  New this week although similar problem occurred several months ago.  Note that Resetting Firefox or Disabling Add-Ons does not resolve problem.

Whoa!  I tried CHANGING the https://www.facebook.com address to https:/facebook.com.  It quickly reverted to https://www.facebook.com and asked me to accept a new cookie, which I did.  Now the facebook notifications work just fine.  Hooray!  Go figure.
