- von Rick, vor einem JahrBewertet mit 5 von 5 SternenWhy can't this extension honor my settings?
My setup is Block All Cookies, Enable First Party isolation, use some Containers for some sites that i use a lot and Set Cookies for Some Sites that need cookies but that i don't use that often to Allow for Session.
i DID-(before i disabled it) have cookie auto delete set to not enable container support, and it wouldn't touch the Containers, which was perfect, And i was hoping cookie auto delete would delete the cookies that i set "Allow for Session" so Firefox wouldn't have to be Restarted for them to get deleted. BUT i noticed every site was getting cookies deleted, then i saw "You must enable cookies in the browser as this extension will replace the internal cookie manager."
Well first, i didn't Enable cookies, and Cookie Auto Delete didn't honor MY Settings and Enabled cookies automatically, which isn't the right thing to do. "You must enable cookies in the browser", well i never Enabled cookies in the browser, but cookie auto delete did.
The wording should read "Cookie Auto Delete WILL enable cookies in the browser automatically as this extension will replace the internal cookie manager.
Second, Can and Will cookie auto delete ever honor my settings and let me Block All Cookies and just delete the cookies that i have set to Allow for Session?
To me that would make cookie auto delete Perfect in my opinion. And i could probably give it only a 4 star rating for these 2 shortcomings, but i won't as one issue is a Wording issue and maybe cookie auto delete should ask before Enabling cookies, but i don't think it's that big of a deal since it needs cookies to delete. Fixing the wording pretty much solves that issue and asking to enable cookies before doing it would go the extra mile.
And the second issue, maybe can't be done, i don't know, But i would think that Blocking All Cookies, Honoring that Setting and just Deleting the cookies that are set to Allow for Session is possible.
i hope this is possible and will be added to cookie auto delete. i would appreciate these being addressed and looking forward to a reply from the CAD Team.
Thanks in advance and all you do for us browser users.
Before i submitted this review, i just thought that i haven't tested this Block All Cookies and cookie auto delete Deleting just the Allow for Session cookies in my Ungoogled Chromium and Brave Browsers.
i probably won't test this for a few days. if you know that would be great.
Thanks again and sorry for the long review but i was trying to be explain and be as thorough as possible.We cannot simply have read-only access to certain browser settings like global cookie behaviours, unless we request for the privacy API, which allows read AND write of certain settings. We only recently implemented a workaround for the detection of firstPartyIsolation that removes the privacy API permission request.
In any case if you disable the cookies then you probably wouldn't need this extension in the first place. We don't enable anything on our own (with the exception of containers as by default any extension that requests the 'contextualidentities' API automatically forces Firefox to enable it (this is a browser 'feature') and this permission cannot be made optional yet).
That being said, however, if you did enable any of the 'other browsing data' cleanup options, then we would create our OWN internal cookie for it. This goes through the Cookie API so I suppose that bypasses whatever you have set (maybe it is a Firefox 'feature')? The reason, as mentioned many times as well as in documentation, is that only cookies can be enumerated for domains, while the other browsing site data types either require that we already know the domain to clean beforehand, or a specific timeframe to remove the data from (e.g. An hour ago, a day ago, all) which is not what this extension does so that is out of the question.
We cannot access the browser internal cookie manager (the one for block/allow for session) as there is no API for it (at least on Firefox) so you'll still need to manually configure the expression through our extension, otherwise the default behaviour of removing cookie(s) if no other tabs with that domain is open will apply. With our own internal cookie being cleaned it then triggers the cleanup for the other browsing types.
This is better off as a support issue as it allows for better commenting and discussion without having to edit the original post much.
Please open a support issue through our GitHub repo for discussion.
- von Matthias Firner, vor einem JahrBewertet mit 5 von 5 SternenThis is a great add-on. Full control over cookie storage; all not-whitelisted cookies get automatically deleted a few seconds after leaving the page that set them, and whitelisting is super-simple.
Unfortunately, due to a _really_ stupid decision mae by the Firefox for Android developers, this add-on no longer works on Firefox for Android, and it seems, the add-on devs can't really do anything about that-
Is there anything that can be done to make this add-on work on non-Desktop Firefoxes?
- von Firefox-Benutzer 16263775, vor einem JahrBewertet mit 5 von 5 SternenEDIT 2: Problem resolved with help from developer. Star rating revised to 5 stars.
Local Storage not being removed. Firefox 68/78. MacOS 13.6
Great must have add-on, but need support (or is this a bug?):
Enable LocalStorage Cleanup is checked (in Other Browsing Data Cleanup Options), but seeing sites with 48KB local storage not being removed, after leaving. Happens both in FF68esr and FF 78esr. Cookies are being removed, just not local storage. MacOS 10.13.6/CAD 3.5.1
EDIT: Already tried twice to ask for support at github. github has become impossible. Both times rejected for this simple question, even though I followed guidelines for support question. https://github.com/Cookie-AutoDelete/Cookie-AutoDelete/issues
Please reply here. Thank you.You had put everything in the title instead of putting the details in its respective section headers in the body.
Resolved as also enabling indexedDB
- von Firefox-Benutzer 14187901, vor einem JahrBewertet mit 5 von 5 SternenGreat add-on! I don't want those session cookies/etc on my computer a moment longer than they need to be, and this does just that. Thanks guys!
- von Firefox-Benutzer 12851851, vor einem JahrBewertet mit 5 von 5 SternenI can't live without this. Please update this to the new Firefox for Android.
- von Firefox-Benutzer 16210350, vor einem JahrBewertet mit 5 von 5 SternenSo Cookie AutoDelete is the best cookie delete tool. I have used it for a while and not once have it let me down. This extension is also the recommended one on a lot of different privacy and VPN sites. Thank you developer!
