Feature request: allow certain cookies to stay even when default is "session only"
I would like that too. I often used this feature in old Opera.
Or is there any add-on which can handle that?
Blink based browsers usually offer Manage exceptions… link in Content settings dialog box.
I don't know why Vivaldi misses that. Meantime, you may open this page directly by going to:
chrome://settings/contentExceptions#cookies ```and add your exceptions (domains) there. All credits go to @Gwen-Dragon, mentioned this trick in [this post](https://vivaldi.net/en-US/forum/vivaldi-browser/11014-setting-exceptions-with-session-cookies#59676).
Thanks for the hint, I'll try that.
But that's one thing I don't like on Vivaldi, there are a lot of settings I can only reach by knowing such an URL. I don't understand why I can't access these setting dialogs through the normal Preferences page. Maybe there is another hidden setting to give me an "Expert" preferences page?
And from what I see, I can only set a default to not delete cookies and then have to make an exception for every other site, but not the other way around. Normally I want all cookies to deleted and make an exception to keep for a handful others. Like it was the Opera way until 12.x
The reason you can't reach some otherwise functional settings through the UI is because the browser is incomplete.
To answer my own question: yes you can set the exceptions, and without knowing magic URLs.
Not really intuitive/easy to find (I learned about this from some post elswhere on the 'net) but it is there.
