For the most part it works great, but lately it's started refreshing the page whenever I toggle cookies on and off. It didn't used to do that, and that's actually been causing me a lot of trouble. I really hope future updates include a way to opt out of this.
This is a requested feature and has been there for years. It is default "off", so the preference must have got turned on somehow. Check the options on the Firefox tools menu.
Ask cookie option gone? Rated 2 out of 5 stars
I installed this add-on because FF decided to do away with the Ask me every time option. On the sample pages for Cookie Controller there is an option listed that says Ask about cookies. Unfortunately there is no such option currently, thereby defeating the purpose of having the add-on. Is that because it linked to the old FF option or was it removed for another reason.
Will reconsider if the option is still available, somewhere.
The option is gone because the function is gone. In versions of Firefox that won't ask you about cookies, Cookie Controller will not let you set that configuration.

One of the best cookie management add-on! Thank you.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.3).
A great add-on, but now broken. Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I am using Firefox 45.1.0, and the "about:permissions" option has ceased to function. Any suggestions?This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.3).
Firefox has removed the about:permissions page, so it isn't possible to open it any more. I'll look into a way of removing the menu item intelligently so for example if someone replaces about:permissions with an addon it will still show.
Quite a nice addon Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Simple and easy to use. I would, however, like to offer a couple suggestions for new options:
(1) Automatically delete cookies for a site if you switch to "Cookies denied"
(2) Auto refresh the page if you change the setting for the site
Both of these options are included in "Cookie Monster", which is a similar addon. But since I like "Cookie Controller" better overall, I believe adding those two new features would make it almost perfect.
There is already an option to auto-reload one or all pages. I'll look into auto-expiring cookies to reflect permission changes, but that isn't as clearcut as it might appear.
Great but just one little problem observed Rated 4 out of 5 stars
The only significant problem that I have but cannot resolve is that Cookie Controller prevents uploading of Photos in Facebook. The only way I can find to 'al;low' it is to set to the 'cookies On' state. Even creating exceptions for Facebook does not resolve it.
It would be nice to be able to create a specific 'setting' for Facebook to allow uploading.
Google NID cookie. Delete issue... Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Nice addon, plese keep good work!
Now, I have noticed one "a little bit annoying" issue.
Every time one visits google.com, he gets a "NID" cookie, which might gie him a unique ID to his google-settings.
This is ok so.
Now, when I click on the Cookie Controller button to delete this (session) cookie, it does NOT get deleted.
I must click "delete all cookies" to have it deleted.
Find a bug Rated 1 out of 5 stars
updated to 4.7, Cookie Controller menu can not be found anywhere. Recovery to 4.6 is OK。This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.7).
Yes, version 4.7 does not work for non-English locales. This is fixed in version 5.0.
Has Great Potential! Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Excellent extension, but has a significant Achille's heel.
All the cookie settings are lost when the user clears Site Preferences. The extension does not store these important preferences separately so they can be reapplied when Site Preferences are cleared.
This is a 5-Star extension when that issue is fixed.
UPDATE: iann (the Developer) added an export/import feature, which is a step in the right direction. If an option is added to automatically apply an import when the user clears Firefox's Site Preferences, that would be great.
Mozilla currently combines "Site Preferences" with many other pieces of data, requiring it to be frequently cleared in order to prevent HSTS abuse, which can track you and even reveal your browser history.
Yes, settings are lost when you delete them. If you want to delete all your permissions, I'm not going to try and stop you. Perhaps the export/import feature will be helpful to restore cookie-related settings if you accidentally delete them.
Be in control of cookies! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Must have for those who want to be in control of cookies!
Thanks for this Extension!
Best cookie manager Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Is it possible to backup my rules or options? I'm reinstalling Firefox and i don't want to whitelist or toggle the "only 1st party allowed" option on every site again.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.4).

What does 'Filter cookies dialog&Filter about:permissions‘ do?This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.3). This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Very good cookie manager Rated 5 out of 5 stars
The previous statement, I can not confirm - it works as it should - excellent extension. Easy to use for me.
Good replacement for CookieSafe, which no longer works for quite some time.
Rated 1 out of 5 stars
This addon is worse than having no cookie manager at all. As others have reported, sites you have blocked will end up in the allowed list. I just confirmed this for the second time.
I have it set to deny all sites unless I grant permission. Then it quietly reverts to allow all sites.
This addon is misleading and a threat to users' security and privacy. It should be removed until it is fixed.
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Briliant tool ! It works very good for me even in Pale Moon.... I use exceptions and add only the allowed pages the rest is blocked :)
Very usefull !
Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Plugin is excessivly complex to operate, sites I've marked as blocked end up in the allowed list soon after and I don't even visit these sites.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.7.1-signed).
Little bug Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This is a great addon to manage cookies behaviour, but I found this problem with exceptions:
When in "Global Settings for ON State", if cookies are accepted only for 1st site ('3rd party' option unchecked), then I cannot add any exception to accept _all cookies_ for a specific site. If I do, it will always work in "only for 1st site" mode...
I can't find any way to bypass that conflict, it's like the global option remained over the "accept exception" options. Could you check that options combination, please?
Anyway, I give 5 stars. This is an awesome addon.
If I understand your description correctly, Firefox does not support what you are asking for. Exceptions apply only to a specific domain, and describe what that domain can do, not what other domains can do on a web page. So a domain foo.com can be given an exception to set all cookies, which allows foo.com to set cookies as a third party at www.bar.com or anywhere else, but that does not allow bar.com to set cookies as a third party on www.foo.com. Please email if you still think there is a problem, to discuss in more detail.
NIce Effort But RIDICULOUSLY OVERcomplicated when COULD B Simple & EASY! =/ Rated 3 out of 5 stars
The control buttons R INSANE! It has SIGNIFICANT overlap in functionality across all of them, leading 2 nothing but bugs &amp;amp; confusing during operation. It should have it all in a SINGLE toolbar icon/button U can push 2 get the various funcitons in menus. If U want 2 have 'customization' simply have an option 2 remove elements from the list that the user does not want. All EYE personally wanted was something 2 clear HOTMAIL cookies when I clicked it, or @ least have a drop-down menu so I can select 'clear cookies for this page' or something. Instead, U have 2 navigate through a maze of submenus &amp;amp; cryptic reference parameters nobody really needs. Sure it's interesting 2 go 2 'Cookie School', but really I don't care. I just want a way 2 clear from a current page rather than having 2 clear the entire database because that would force me 2 re-log on 2 every page I am currently on instead of jsut the active tab!
Give it ONE toolbar icon, with customizable menu, INCLUDING a functionality 2 'delete cookies 4 this tab' = SIMPLE &amp;amp; FAST! =)
BTW: Notice how the jackazz programmer tries 2 blame the user 4 their programming mistakes! HAHAHA Everything I said is true, from the massive overlap in confusing button functionality, 2 the lack of a simple way 2 delete cookies only 4 the current active tab's page. Stop pretending the problem doesn't exist, dork. I never said I want 2 delete all cookies & bla bla.
BTW: The reason I get mad about the FAILINGS of this UNINTUITIVE program is because it is WASTING MY TIME =:-P What kind of nut case makes 3 different buttons all of which have different features but mostly the SAME? Make ONE! Good god give me a break! & all the excruciating minutia of control, but nothing basic like we really need, like deleting quickly on a per-tab basis.
If you just want to delete cookies then this is the wrong addon for you. However it will do what you want, if you had bothered to read the instructions. There's a button, click it, cookies are gone. Just from the current "page" (as you so quaintly put it, actually from the relevant domain or sub-domain, configurable as needed), if there are any. Click more and more cookies will go, the button icon and tooltip will tell you what is going to be deleted. Click often enough and they'll all go. Or you can delete anything from individual cookies up to the entire database using the menus.

Does pretty much everything one could ever ask for to be in control of cookies. However, all this comes without superfluous complexity, facilitating ease of use.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.5.1-signed).
