If you disable cookies on a domain that redirects you to a third-party domain for login, it becomes impossible to re-enable the third party site's cookies on the first-party site's domain

Troubleshooting technical issues is much easier when both the user and support agent practice clear communication. For this reason, we have provided the template below for you to fill out with information about your issue. Please provide as much detail as possible so we can most efficiently resolve your problem.

Description of the issue: See title. Since it redirects rather than immediately erroring, it’s not possible to modify Shields settings for that site.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Navigate to a site that with cookies cleared from a third-party domain, redirects you to that domain.
  2. Go to the cookie settings for the site initially navigated to in 1.
  3. Click the garbage can icon in the entry for the first-party site’s cookie settings.
  4. Click the garbage can icon in the entry for the third-party site’s cookie settings.

Expected result: Both sites’cookie settings to be deleted.

Actual result: Only the first-party site’s cookie settings are reset

Additional Information: This was on an internal non-public site, so I can’t give you a link (Sorry!), but I tried to give you enough information to potentially be able to reproduce it yourself with a specially constructed test site. Also, my escape hatch was first deleting the first-party cookie deny entry, then attempting to go to the site again (for the redirect), then disabling shields for it. This was all because of improper cookie settings. (I misclicked and disabled all cookies when I meant to enable third-party cookies.)

You can try clearing site data.
Clearing site data solves most problems like this.

I tried that to no avail, actually.
