Cookies policy on FB site
Not even one idea, what to do about this? Apparently nobody is experiencing the same…Well, can at least any of FB users confirm, that you don't have any problem with that policiy after first and mandatory check on it? Seems to me, that there is catch in cookies. I erased them (for FB only) few times to see if that can solve thie isue, but there was no use of doing that at all.
I also have a problem with FB header (toolbar). It should float on site, so you can manage things instantly, but in my case it disapears every time I scrool down. So I need to scrool up again to reach header. This problem I also have only in Vivaldi, in all other browsers header stays on top regardless of scrooling on site. I reported that bug to DEV crew, but....
You seem to have some unique problems, which I cannot replicate here. What sort of platform are you on? What security and privacy software do you run? Have you changed any cookie policies in Vivaldi?
The problem is not present all the time that I'm using Vivaldi, as I can recall, this happened by switching to 64 bit Vivaldi. Strange thing is, that Vivaldi version info data shows it is 64 bit version I'm running on now, but program itself isn't in in 64 bit program files folder, instead of that it is stored in x86 (32 bit software). Could that be a problem?
Here is how it goes:
1. I log onto FB.
3. As recomended I click on policy and navigate on site.
4. Than I move to my profile (or home) and check out regular content, in current sesion there isn't no policy notification no more and header is normaly floating on site.
5. I log out and close browser (I don't even need to do that - no effect on problem).
6. I open browser and log again.
What security and privacy software do you run?
I use no other security SW than Windows defender
Or there is something else on your mind?
One other question, perhaps - do you use any extensions?
Nope, I don't use any exstension, just standard plugins that comes with instalation.
It looks like FB does not recognize (my) Vivaldi when loging in. Strange. But it does recognize all other browsers I have installed or used before.
And I'm wondering why sticky header problem is happening along with this policy isue. Alegedly this has to do something with CSS for sticky headers. Don't ask me what, I'm not that familiar with it. :)
Current cookie presence for FB (see attachment):
Well, afrer todays instalation FB doesn't recognize new device (aka browser). Security notice should be sent to me, as I erased list (entries for chrome dated on 6th june this year) of used devices. It lets me run on vivaldi, but what security info is showing is (see attachment):
Wow. Was your Recognized Devices list always that short? Mine's 50 items long (lots of different computers and browsers, dupes and retired cell phones)
This is current situation. I erased all of devices I do not use, and lately also chrome one, which represented Vivaldi (representig engine that runs on). I deleted it, because I wanted to see, if I'll get FB notification about new device after fresh instal of Vivaldi yesterday. Well, nothing happened.
Are devices on your list with it displayed as Vivaldi, or is it chrome?
They are all called "chrome."

I have exactly the same problem. Besides FB there are also other sites that doesn't save cookies. Also have Windows 7 and Vivaldi x64 browser.
Through this time, I checked all that I could and all that I know, but things are as they were before. As well my friends are not using this browser and they're pretty skeptical about it, I cannot get any possible feedback from them. Piity is, that I'm also using Vivaldi less, due to mutilated functionality. I hope this will be solved in some reasonable time, till then Vivaldi will be my second choice. Still it is quite good browser. :)
Well, I did a comparison between FB cookies stored in FF and in Vivaldi. There are 13 of them in FF and 12 in Vivaldi. One that is missing in Vivaldi is named x-src. Could this be the reason for my problem? What does x-src stand for?
This particular cookie also disapears if I close the browser without loging out of FB. After engaging the browser I'm still loged in, but cookie isn't present anymore.
