Hi,

This has been brought up before, but not with this exact question (not that I could find, at least).

I understand that cookies cannot be synced across devices, but this is not what I am asking for. Is there a way to make firefox sync the list of exceptions? Meaning, only the specified website URL and its status, not the cookies from these sites.

Exceptions are not part of data that is synced. All exceptions (logins are an exception) are stored permissions.sqlite in the Firefox profile folder.

Nice. Would it be possible to add exceptions to the syncing list in the future?

Right now, no site permissions/exceptions are included in Sync, whether that is pop-up, camera, notification, or cookies, etc. Is it possible this might be added in the future? I really have no idea...

Mozilla has a product suggestion site at https://connect.mozilla.org/. I think if you have time, it would be a good idea to post this request there to get into the current feedback stream. Use the "Ideas" section of the site.

Alright.

Yeah I should do that. I've just noted that previous, similar posts to this one have requested functionalities that have been flagged as probably never being implemented.
