    Daily Dare Tracker Not Working

    Hey all,
    thanks to this thread, I did my very first daily dare yesterday. Naturally, I was excited to do my second one today, and get one step closer to the 50 for the first badge. However, I noticed that the tracker didn't save my entry from yesterday. What could be the problem?

    What I found out:
    The tracker is supposed to save the values via localStorage.setItem(). I'm using Firefox, so according to this answer on SO localStorage should be stored in
    ~/.mozilla/firefox/<profile folder>/webappsstore.sqlite. So I wanted to look at the database and installed sqlitebrowser, but it turns out I cannot open it because sqlitebrowser returns the error message "Could not open database file. Reason: database is locked".
    I don't know if it's at all relevant, but in my browser preferences, I have blocked content tracking (which blocks google analytics, for example). I don't think that this should interact with localStorage, though.

    Sorry if I'm missing something obvious, I'm not a web dev.

    Edit: I just checked and found that this error does not depend on closing the browser window, it already happens upon switching the tab.

    You're clearly computer-savvy, so I almost hesitate to ask... did you hit the save button?

    I just tested it and it works for me. I also use Firefox and block content tracking.

      no worries, sometimes the most obvious things can still be missed
      not this time though, I did hit the save button.

        fosca You can see the values stored in local storage on FF (and some other browsers) like this:
        [F12] or [Shift]+[F9] then you can skip the next step -> 'Storage' -> left sidebar scroll down to 'Local Storage' -> choose URL of the website you want to see. You should see a key/value pair of the stored data. Clicking on one gives you the values in a right sidebar in more detail. There you can also filter the values.
        The challenges also use local storage, do they work?

          Andi64 thanks for the suggestion! I can see that upon hitting "save", the value for EC changes. however, this is not permanent, the moment I close the tab or switch tabs, the value is reset to 0. This is the same for the challenges etc.
          Pandora works, because it's cookie based, although I have to export them as a JSON file after every session and then import them again for the next session, since they too are not permanent.

            Do you browse in incognito mode or disabled cookies? If so, your session is not be stored and you need to add darebee to your exceptions in firefox

              What about anti-virus progs in the background, maybe Kaspersky (or similar) is killing all the stuff you want to keep? They can be over-anxious esp. if they run as an add-on.
              Did you add (in your browser and antivirus) darebee.com to the sites that can store data (cookies...) on your computer? If you choose to re-import your cookies every time you close your browser you should consider safety against comfort.

                Surras I only block tracking and cross-site cookies, so this shouldn't be an issue. But since I wasn't completely sure, I added darebee to the exception list, so I now have some google analytics cookies going on, but the problem remains the same.

                Andi64 I run debian stable, so there is little need for antivirus software, which is why I don't run any.
                I actually only have to manage my cookies manually for darebee, at least that I know of. On stackoverflow for example, the cookies work fine, since they are not cross-site or social media cookies. But as I just said to Surras, I added darebee to the exception list (where it is now the only entry, since I don't usually think *any* website should be allowed to store cross-site cookies on my client), but this didn't change anything.

                  Well, it's working for me, now. It is quite embarrassing for me to admit that the solution was indeed only to add darebee to the exception list, but it had to be the exception list for cookies and site data (obviously), not the one for tracking, which is where I added it at first.
                  While I rather dislike feeling embarrassed, it is one of the non-physical fitness skills I try to work on, so there we go.
