Well, with the loss of my favorite Self-Destructing Cookies add-on (it is no longer being updated), I needed another way to do essentially what that add-on did. So I found this, and guess what? It transferred over the whitelist! Well, I lucked out big-time and thank you very much for making this so I can continue to not worry about cookies. Plus, those other cookie add-ons are way too complicated when the point of getting one is to spend LESS time dealing with cookies.

whitelist is not saving permanent permissions, I've tried other similar add-ons but none of them saves permanent permissions.

- do I need to enable some "about:config" settings to make it work?

* it would be nice if you add Whitelist to the right-click context menu coz I don't like to have too many icons in the nav-bar
* automatically refresh the website that you added to the whitelist

Could you clarify what you mean by "saving permanent permissions"?

Contact me at the support email address given on the add-on page, if you prefer.


ff 28.0 compatibility Ohodnoceno 5 z 5 hvězdiček

Please PLEASE make it work in FF 28.

Awesome, necessary addon.

I get the impression that ff team is trying to make it harder and harder to keep addons up to date.

I see this as an essential addon. Thank You.

There is currently a bug in addons.mozilla.org that prevents installation in Firefox 27/28.

For now, please install version 2.2.1 from this list:

The best and simplest addon to quickly and easily manage cookies.

The best of the best! Ohodnoceno 5 z 5 hvězdiček

Over the years I have tried all of the cookie managers and IMO this one is the best in a landslide for a number of reasons.

1. It is the simplest. The common schmuck who doesn't have an IT degree is going to flip out when they see the more complex managers.

2. It's simple design looks better- again helping tech rookies.

3. It is vital for keeping us private/safe. I coach people to only whitelist their most vital sites and block everything else. This is vital in combating spying. I also coach people to liberate themselves from the social networking plague by temporarily allowing Facebook and Twitter just long enough to delete their accounts and get their lives back!

4. It cuts the bloat. Without a good cookie manager every single site folks visit leave cookies- good ones, evil ones, and a zillion that end up as sheer clutter. Users then haphazardly do system cleanups and wipe out the good with the bad and start the cycle all over again... With this only a few vital ones get allowed and the clutter never is an issue.

Lastly, I cannot believe the complaints here. Folks who don't know what a cookie is think that it "breaks" sites because they can't log in. It couldn't be any simpler. Everything by default is blocked and there is the green light and the red light. Sesame Street couldn't make it any simpler than that! If people can't figure that out...

No point anymore. Can't even log on to hotmail or even mozilla without turning on the "accept all cookies", even if its white listed. Maybe I have to white list even more pages, but its just a hassle to surf this way, trying to figure out which page needs white listing.
No point anymore trying to surf and not be exposed to tracking.

It sounds like a simple whitelist approach is no longer working for you. Maybe you should try a different cookie extension.

Ohodnoceno 4 z 5 hvězdiček

A simple cookie manager with an effective user interface. The concept is simple. Instead of trying to blacklist cookies from shady sources, or trying to remove tracking cookies after they get onto your computer, you can deny all cookies except those you absolutely want on your computer. Now, I can use search engines and look at advertisements knowing that they aren't tracking my behavior though my cookies. (I know that they are using other methods instead, but why make things easy for them?)

The only problem is that a lot of sites use multiple domain names to authenticate logins, and these domain names don't always begin with the domain on the page. (example: google uses accounts.google.com and accounts.youtube.com, among others to verify logins.)

Unfortunately, cookie whitelist does not give an easy way to know what these cookies are or add exceptions for them. Instead, if you want these sites to work (without opening the flood gates for your entire session), is to look at your cookie list, temporarily allow cookies, log in to the website, see what new cookies got added to your cookie folder, put an exception in manually, log out, then relog back in to see if it works now, which can be a real pain. Even so, cookie whitelist has kept a lot of cookies off my computer, and for that I'm grateful.

Thanks for the review! Your observations are absolutely correct, a simple whitelist definitely has its limitations. For your example, the recommended way to use CWWB would be to whitelist "google.com" and "youtube.com", since you are going these websites on a regular basis.

Of course, if you want to use Google services but somehow want to reduce the amount of tracking done through cookies, you're going to need a smarter cookie extension.

good, but inconvenient/complicated to "unwhitelist" Ohodnoceno 3 z 5 hvězdiček

The addon works well for what it's designed to do - allow you to temporarily turn cookies on or off globally. The extra option to remove cookies that were collected during the time you had them enabled is a real plus. The ability to quickly "whitelist" a site is also helpful, but it's unfortunate that the addon gives no simple method to "unwhitelist". If you change your mind about a site, you have to open the whitelist to manually search for and remove the site's entry.

It's a bit difficult to understand the developer's reluctance to consider making the whitelist button "on/off", instead of "on / do nothing". I don't see that it would add any complexity to the addon. Even if the need to unwhitelist a site is rare - in the way he uses it - it still happens. It seems to me such a change would add to the "convenience/simplicity" of the addon, rather than take away from it. An option to remove a site's cookies when you unwhitelist it would be even more convenient...

For people like me who prefer to temporarily whitelist a site that I may be only using for a day or two, rather than enable cookies globally, there are other options such as Cookie Monster, CS Lite, etc. - unfortunately they have their own problems (overly complex, ugly)... but at least this addon gives you the option to hide the whitelist button, in case you want to use an alternative method.

Perfect Ohodnoceno 5 z 5 hvězdiček

Simple and effective cookie manager.
Only a suggestion about the colors.I don't like the gray color for the plus white listed site icon because seems inactive, please switch to blue.
The option remove cookie from unlisted website, delete cookies on exit or what?

Ohodnoceno 4 z 5 hvězdiček

Unusable. It messes with Firefox's own cookie settings. It always automatically configures Firefox to not accept any cookies. Before, my FF was configured to accept all but forget upon exit. This addon always changes that setting and renders half of the Internet unusable.All I want is to use the whitelist button to define cookies that are allowed to survive FF exit, but not possible with this addon. Uninstalled.

EDIT: Thanks author for the response. Yes, you are right, it works now. But it is very unclear to the user that "Leave cookie button unchanged" would do this. You should call it "leave Firefox cookie settings unchanged" or similiar. Otherwise it is almost impossible to guess what this setting does. Changed rating to 4/5.

Also it would be good if you could make two separate buttons. It is a little annoying to have to go to the add-on settings to hide the cookie button.

Tato recenze je pro předchozí verzi doplňku (2.1). 

This is exactly how the extension works. To quote from the description: "By default, CWWB configures Firefox's privacy options so that only websites on your cookie whitelist can set cookies." You then use the eponymous buttons to whitelist select sites or accept all sites temporarily.Configuring CWWB for your use case is also possible.

UPDATE: There still seems to be some confusion, can you contact me via email (should be somewhere on these pages)? There is almost no reason to hide the cookie button, as it's the main feature of the extension.

Where or where is ..... Ohodnoceno 3 z 5 hvězdiček

Downloaded a few minutes ago and have no idea where the buttons for this add-on are located. It's supposedly in the status bar, but firefox got rid of that. Help, how do I use this?

Tato recenze je pro předchozí verzi doplňku (2.1). 

The buttons are now on the toolbar (Firefox > Options > Navigation Toolbar) by default. If they're not, right-click on somewhere empty on the toolbar and choose "Customize...", to see if the buttons can be dragged onto the toolbar.

very useful Ohodnoceno 5 z 5 hvězdiček

This should be part of every browser bundle. Why would anybody want to be tracked by so many companies? With this add-on you can accept cookies only for sites, where you login.

Needs whitelist Export/Import Ohodnoceno 4 z 5 hvězdiček

Very necessary and very usefull addon.

Desperately needs function to export/import whitelist.

Allow for session Ohodnoceno 3 z 5 hvězdiček

Unfortunately it lacks a "Whitelist" for the "Allow for session"-cookies ... The "Session-Cookies" should be allowed only when the related website is called. And when the website (the tab) is closed, the related cookie should be deleted -- this would be a real privacy enhancement!

Conflicts with Awesome Screenshot addon Ohodnoceno 4 z 5 hvězdiček

I needed to set this to 'Accepting unauthorized cookies' for Awesome Screenshot to work ( that addon seems to use a resource:// URL, which I couldn't whitelist )

Great add-on. Seems like many sites that I visit on a daily basis are now setting so many cookies that I got tired of clicking Deny over and over. This add-on solves that problem seamlessly. I'm very happy with it and it has made web browsing easier and a little more secure. Just remember to not dump your site preferences, or dump cookies upon exit in Firefox privacy. This add-on will delete your cookies for you upon exit.

Breaks Lastpass Ohodnoceno 3 z 5 hvězdiček

This has the potential to be a great extension in the future...
For me a dealbreaker is the fact that it causes me to have to login to the Lastpass extension every time I open firefox. It seems to cause cookies to delete "every time I close firefox" instead of my default "when they expire". If this behaviour could be corrected then this might turn out to be a very special extension indeed.

Whitelist Lastpass.com

I just checked out the Lastpass extension. It looks like you need to go to Lastpass.com and whitelist the site, so that the extension can use the login cookie across browser sessions.

Hi, I'm afraid I couldn't find your email address either, so I'm posting a feature request here.

I find this an excellent add on, I've had no problems at all using it with FF11 and W7.

My only wish would be to have a "Save/Export list" option... I run CCleaner frequently, especially on my office PC and it would be great for me if, at the start of a session, I could re-load all my usual white-listed sites with a couple of clicks, rather than doing them one by one?

This would allow us to clean Site Preferences and not be too incovenienced by an empty sites white-list... I hope that makes sense?

Thanks anyway, good job.

Tato recenze je pro předchozí verzi doplňku (2.1). 

You raise a good point. Being able to protect the cookie whitelist while cleaning other site preferences might be a worthwhile feature.

Ohodnoceno 5 z 5 hvězdiček

This is great because I can easily choose who i want to share cookies with. I particularly like it as I don't have to share any cookies with Google.

(Almost) Perfect but not... Ohodnoceno 3 z 5 hvězdiček

I rated it with 3 stars although I can NOT make it work. I did so because it looks FANTASTIC on paper, and could be a LIFESAVER.

My cookies whitelists are deleted upon every firefox restart. I HAVE configured FF not to clear its "Site Preferences", as stated in FAQ, (tools-->recent history-->untick site preferences) and inspite that, the list still disappears.
Maybe a bug ?
FF 11 on Xubuntu 11.10 if that helps

@Al. Dietrich
Would have mailed you but did not find any email address. So 3 stars for now, and REALLY hope to make a 5 star review in the near future. Danke.

there should be "Support E-mail" link with my e-mail address on the add-on page. (I'm not sure whether AMO does any spam protection in these comments, so I'll not post it here.)

Please send me a list of your installed add-ons, thanks!
