After the last Firefox update the icon went missing. Other than that Great Addon.
One of the biggest Privacy Benefits for You Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas
Great extension that improves your privacy a lot! A lovely feature is that you can make exceptions for certain sites.
Note that some websites use additional techniques to remember you. This can be done using other fingerprinting techniques and using localStorage, sessionStorage and canvas tracking, "evercookies" and others. This addon cannot prevent everything but it does already a good job for most websites.

So I was under the impression that this add on destroyed all cookies and trackers as soon as you soon as they either entered your computer or when you closed the browser well I have two browsers on my computer because I have a Mac it automatic came with Safari but I'm not a fan so I choose to use Mozilla. So since after getting this add-on I hadn't gone online through Safari in awhile so I was abit surprised how many cookies were still on their but I didn't think anything of it I just assumed that it was because this add on only worked on firefox only thos that came in through Mozilla so I cleared out those cookies and left Safari alone for about a week. Then todayrandomly I went to safari and checked and saw I had cookies from websites that I'd been to on Firefox that I hadn't been on in Safari since the last time I cleared out the cookies like almost every website I've been to so I'm a little confused on how this works. do these websites pay a fee and thus the add on only doesn't destroy their cookies is there something else going on I'm I thought this is a good thing that I got this and now I'm concerned

Please support Pale Moon 27 Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas
This extension is a Jetpack SDK extension and thus is incompatible with Tycho (Pale Moon 27). The extension will have to be rewritten to use supported technologies such as pure Toolkit or Bootstrap.
Can you make this please?
Configure SDC "hidden setting". Block Google NID persistent tracking "spy" cookie Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas
Salutes to Developer Ove Sörensen and this brilliant extension. This review is for any SDC users who have an interest in using a higher level of SDC cookies policy and privacy. This review replaces a previous review to correct inaccuracies that failed to address properly the distinction between Local Shared Object (LSO) flash cookies and localStorage.
In my experience, the SDC "hidden setting" allows SDC to function consistently and reliably at the highest level if FF has the following settings in Preferences/Privacy/History:
Firefox will: Use custom settings for history
Always use private browsing mode: disable
Accept cookies from sites: disable
Enable the SDC "hidden setting" -
On the SDC home page, in the last paragraph in the "About this Add-on" section, follow the instructions to create a new boolean key in Firefox/about:config. After enabling the "hidden setting", cookies will behave differently than the text labels in the SDC toolbar menu indicate. After selecting for a specific site one of the 3 primary options, (1) red, (2) yellow, or (3) green, that site's cookies actually will conform to the following behaviors:
(1) Red icon with label "after you close its tabs" -
SDC and FF will block this specific site's cookies every time you connect to this site. With the SDC "hidden setting" enabled, this is the default cookies setting for all sites unless you select one of the other options, (2) yellow or (3) green, to change the cookies setting for a specific site.
(2) Yellow icon with label "after you close the browser" -
SDC and FF always will allow this specific site's cookies, but only temporarily for this session. This site's cookies always will self-destruct when you end this site's session by either (a) closing this site's tab or (b) quitting Firefox.
(3) Green icon with label "never"-
SDC and FF always will allow this specific site's cookies, and this site's cookies never will self-destruct.
Google NID and Google PREF persistent tracking (spy) cookies -
The problem: every time you open FF/Preferences/Privacy/Show Cookies/Cookies and remove the PREF or NID cookies, they reappear within seconds or minutes, even when you are offline. To remove and permanently block the NID and PREF cookies: (1) In FF/Preferences/Privacy/Show Cookies/Cookies, remove all google.com cookies. (2) Go to FF/Preferences/Security, (3) uncheck "Block reported attack sites", and (4) uncheck "Block reported web forgeries". (5) Go to FF/Preferences/Privacy/Exceptions and (6) type google.com in "Address of website", (7) click Block, and (8) click Save Changes. (9) Go to Firefox/about:support and (10) click "Show in Finder" to open your current Profile Folder in a Finder window. (11) In your Firefox Profile Folder, locate the "cookies.sqlite" file. It contains programming that persistently is re-installing the PREF and NID cookies each time you delete them from FF/Preferences/Privacy/Show Cookies/Cookies, even when you are offline. (12) Delete the "cookies.sqlite" file. Warning: deleting "cookies.sqlite" will delete all FF cookies. (13) Restart FF, which will create a fresh "cookies.sqlite" file that will not re-install the NID and PREF cookies unless you later do some combination of the following: enable "Block reported attack sites", enable "Block reported web forgeries", log in a Google account, log in a YouTube account, enable google.com cookies and do a Google search.
PRIVACY and other reasons for disabling "Block reported attack sites" and "Block reported web forgeries" -
"Safe browsing": http://kb.mozillazine.org/Safe_browsing describes how these settings work. After enabling the settings, clicking a link causes FF to ask a Google server whether that link or site is suspicious. Google can use such inquiries to track your activities, build a profile on you, and sell, trade, or share your profile with corporations and government agencies.

Three useful web sites quickly will test any site or link so you can determine whether a site or link is authentic, secure, risky, or has malware. The three sites do not require you to enable "Block reported attack sites" or "Block reported web forgeries". The three sites do not require the PREF, NID, or any other cookies. The three sites do not track you when you run the tests:

The NSA and Google "spy" cookies -
Several years ago, the United States National Security Agency began using the Google PREF persistent tracking cookie as a digital surveillance beacon to track individual Internet users. To the best of my knowledge, at that time, the PREF cookie appeared only in the Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome browsers. The Google NID persistent tracking cookie seems to be a newer and possibly more technologically advanced tracking cookie than the older-generation PREF cookie. The NID cookie does appear in FF and possibly appears in the Chrome browser, too.
How to determine whether the PREF or NID cookies are in FF -
Go to FF/Preferences/Privacy. Enable "History | Firefox will: Use custom settings for history". Click on "Show Cookies..." In the Cookies window, in the Site column, find the domain name "google.com". On the left-side of "google.com", click the black triangle to expand the column beneath google.com, which will show an indented list of google.com cookies. In the Cookies window, in the Cookie Name column, if you see the name PREF or NID, your browser has that tracking cookie.

ST reviews contain false statements Puntuado con 4 de 5 estrellas
@Skepp Tikal: It would be really great if you could refrain from posting great walls of text that repeat essentially the same essay on the SDC "hidden setting" over and over again. You've done it at least 7 times now and it serves little purpose to others but to bury other reviews. You may wish to use the time saved to research the subject of cookies a little more. Local shared objects (LSO) are also known as flash cookies, created only by the flash player plug-in. BetterPrivacy manages LSOs only. You've uninstalled the flash plug-in and still use BetterPrivacy, which is utterly pointless. HTML5 introduced a new sort of 'cookie' that has nothing to do with LSOs and nothing to do with regular cookies. This new type is referred to as "Web Storage", but is also referred to as "DOM Storage" or "Local Storage" and it resides in the webappsstore.sqlite file found in your Firefox profile. Notice how Ove documents that SDC manages both regular cookies and "has LocalStorage support". LSO and Local Storage are NOT the same thing. BetterPrivacy does NOT manage Local Storage, but SDC does, so why do you tell us that you disable SDC LocalStorage functionality and instead use "BetterPrivacy to manage _LocalStorage_ flash cookies"? Those aren't the same thing. Again, LocalStorage cookies are NOT flash cookies. There is no such thing as "LocalStorage flash cookies". You are either very confused or simply don't know that Local Storage exists as an entirely different thing from LSOs. As far as I can tell, there is no overlap between SDC and BetterPrivacy. As for your enthusiastic and repeated promotion of the "hidden setting', there are many of us who would like to block the Google NID cookies that slip past SDC's default configuration, but we don't want to change the meaning of the red/yellow/green SDC icons, we don't want to obliterate all our other cookies by deleting cookies.sqlite, and we aren't interested in an unreliable and convoluted workaround of the sort you keep suggesting. None of that should be necessary. There should be no reason to lose the benefits of Firefox's "Block reported attack sites" and "Block reported web forgeries" protections. All we need is for SDC to be enhanced to block all cookies that are not associated with user browser tabs.
A plea to Ove Puntuado con 4 de 5 estrellas
I've tested SDC and it's almost everything I could want for myself and all the users I support. Much easier to use than any other cookie manager I've tried. The concept is brilliant. My intention was to convert all the Firefox profiles I support from Cookie Monster to SDC, and that's when I learned about background cookies not being managed at all by SDC. Google is the single worst cookie abuser on the planet, so seeing background Google NID cookies go right past SDC was a deal breaker.
Please, Ove, please enhance SDC such that all background cookies and localStorage super cookies are always blocked by default. Can there ever really be any positive use for background cookies/localStorage?
I don't know about other cookie managers, but Cookie Monster fails to delete localStorage super cookies when deleting regular cookies, so I'm eager to change, but that fault isn't as bad as allowing background cookies through.
4 stars because for people who already allow persistent Google cookies, SDC is quite good, but it's fatally flawed for those that don't and for those of us who also worry about extensions, plug-ins, and other Mozilla functionality that do background access to arbitrary other websites.
No access to settings? Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

Please fix the bug...
Recommended Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas
I would definitely recommend this add-on for anyone concerned with cookies and privacy. Set it up and forget all about cookies - they will work fine as long as you stay on a site - and then, poof, they're gone!
Essential but not witout flaws Puntuado con 4 de 5 estrellas
Really essential for privacy minded folks who keep the browser running for a long time.
Adding domains to the whitelist with the addon icon is somewhat broken. Domains will always be added without a non standard port. I recommend using the Firefox native UI.

...I'll have firefox completely blank, no page is loaded at all. I disabled top sites. I close the last tab, cookies, etc, get removed, but sometimes there will be a persistent google NID and/or mozilla add ons cookie. OSX 10.9.5, fx 47.01.
A Thoughtfully Written, Highly Useful Extension Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas
… and a fine complement to Adblock in my case. I would suggest only one thing, and it wouldn't really be a change so much as an added setting : allowing the user to choose, via toggle switch or something like that in the add-on's settings, whether the extension should function by default as it does now, i.e. immediately destroying a site's cookies when the site is exited, or, at the user's discretion, if it should work the other way around, i.e. leaving a site's cookies intact until/unless the user instructs the add-on to destroy that site's cookies on exit. In other words, giving the user the choice to have new sites default to the GREEN icon rather than the RED icon. Letting the user choose which of those two modes of operation he would prefer to see the extension default to shouldn't involve too much extra coding and would be good for users who, say, have no problem letting 95% of cookies remain and only want to block those from a handful of sites.
That said, I suspect that idea goes against the very ideology, thrust, and/or purpose of the developer in creating this add-on, who would see me tar-and-feathered before implementing it :)
No matter, it's still a full ★★★★★ rating as is, far as I'm concerned.
Works great Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas
Deletes cookies after all tabs that use them have been closed with a short delay. This works great as an additional measure to avoid tracking without the hassle of other extensions that outright block cookies.
Sites where you want to stay logged in can be easily white-listed.
you want me to manually find and check 2688 cookies and type into the whitelist??? Puntuado con 2 de 5 estrellas
This is a great idea. When I installed it, i liked the "tutorial" showing what it does and how to undelete/suspended the cookies, but NO LIST of them is available! I can't even begin to use this as I will lose all my important cookies, it would take me days to find them, load the web pages, or type them in.
Suggestion: (a lot to ask, I know...) any possibility of showing a list of the deleted/suspended cookies with checkboxes to move them to whitelist?
Great extension for privacy conscious people Puntuado con 4 de 5 estrellas
Great extension. My only problem is that it is not possible to configure the extension in firefox for android. It can be installed but the only way to use it is with standard configuration parameters, which means there is no way to avoid the notifications when cookies are deleted.
