  • Cookie Quick Manager is a very complete cookie manager with an ergonomic user interface. Unlike other addOns, it allows you to edit, backup, restore cookies, search them by domain names and so on. This addOn is perfect for who has a clue of what he/she is doing and is not only looking for a "delete all cookies" button.
    The developer is also attentive to his users.
    Great work, carry on!
    Thank you for your encouraging review :)
  • Update to the Update Warning
    I discovered the obvious this morning: Selecting "Always open Cookie Quick Manager in new tab" in the options completely avoids the problem which I have since not tried to bother to reproduce and will not bother with in future.

    Thank you Ysard for taking the time to provide more information in your timely response. I did read the info in the options window about uMatrix and as a result installed it earlier today. I am in the process of learning how to tweak it.

    As for the details of the "endless loop", yes, they were something like that, but I no longer recall the exact details and have long since disposed of the profile. The profile was built from scratch to test Quantum 64.0 and some baseline extensions before committing to a profile build using the critical data files from my old, everyday Firefox 49.0.2 profile.

    I will check out GitHub in the future once I get a Quantum profile up and running that I am happy with.

    Re: - Request to implement the possibility to delete all cookies from the drop-down menu...

    However, I commit to implement this feature in the next version.

    I am now committed to Quantum 64.0 and Cookie Quick Manager whether you implement the "delete all cookies" feature or not. Cookie Quick Manager is the ONLY add-on I can find that protects cookies, I have to have it. It is a necessity, period. Otherwise Quantum is nothing more than a useless hulk that I never much liked to begin with (hence my attachment to Firefox 49.0.2).

    I truly hope and encourage you implement a "delete all cookies" button for reasons already given.

    Since I am committed to Quantum and Cookie Quick Manager I am prepared to follow through and delete this review, give a new one and give a donation without the delete all feature.

    I don't see anywhere to donate on this page. Put up something or a link to something and I will follow through.

    I will leave this review in place for a few days as a temporary communication link.


    IF under Options > General the "Restore previous session" option is selected AND YOU INADVERTANTLY CLOSE THE BROWSER WITH THE "Manage all Cookies" WINDOW OPEN, the browser will henseforth be stuck in an endless loop of lauching to the "Manage All Cookies" window.

    Problem solved (see above and developer's responce), the rest deleted as unnecessary ...

    (What follows is my original review. I hope the developer reads it if he has read the above.)

    Today (1/4/2019) I finally decided to give up my death grip on my trusty and smooth working Firefox 49.0.2 installation largely because of this add-on, "Cookie Quick Manager." For all intents and purposes, it is conceptually and nearly functionally the same as the venerable but defunct "CookieKeeper"

    ... and I delete the rest of this, not relevant anymore ...
    Hi, your feedback is complete, I take this out of it:

    - Request to implement the possibility to delete all cookies from the drop-down menu.

    It is indeed tiring to have to go through multiple actions to accomplish this task.
    Using an addon such as uMatrix which by default blocks cookies, I'm less interested myself
    by this feature because I essentially only have "useful" cookies in my browser.
    However, I commit to implement this feature in the next version.

    - The presence of a bug that you encounter under the following conditions:
    - Option "Restore previous session" activated in the browser preferences,
    - Option "Always open Cookie Quick Manager in new tab" activated in the CQM preferences,
    - Opening the "Manage all cookies" tab of CQM,
    - Select or not the "Manage all cookies" tab of CQM,
    - Closing the browser,
    - Opening the browser,
    - Infinite loop.

    - Option "Restore previous session" activated in the browser preferences,
    - Option "Always open Cookie Quick Manager in new tab" disabled in CQM preferences (default behavior),
    - Opening the "Manage all cookies" window of CQM,
    - Closing the browser,
    - Closing the CQM window,
    - Opening the browser,
    - Infinite loop.

    Is this your test protocol?

    I systematically use session restoration on my browser.
    However, neither of these 2 protocols allows me to reproduce your problem when restarting Firefox (tested on 64.0 & 65.0b7) :/
    Each protocol ends with a correct restoration of the session and the tab or window "Manage all cookies".

    Addons.mozilla is not very well adapted to the reporting of bugs of this type. I encourage you to create an issue on GitHub, the platform where I publish my code, and where users report problems they encounter, or the improvements they want to see.

    This allows other users to view the discussions and perform tests on their own.

    In addition, I encourage you to test your problem on a new Firefox profile.
    The migration to Quantum profoundly modifies many of the browser's features and it is not excluded that the problem you are experiencing is actually due to an older profile (in other words, it was an opportunity for me to clean up my profile, which was 10 years old).


    EDIT 01/08/2019:
    Thank you for your review,
    The bug of the windowed mode remains quite mysterious.

    In terms of donation there is currently only a Bitcoin address accessible from the addon (donation button).
    It is a cost-saving solution compared to crowfounding platforms, which can charge significant fees.
    I could add another cryptomoney such as Ethereum, or the Leetchi solidarity fundraising platform....
  • Great add-on, everything works as advertised, developer is ready to help everyone - even those who never read description text. Great work, thanks for sharing.
    Thank you for your message this is encouraging :)
  • Initially promissing but just flat out stops working after a while. I add a cookie correctly for the domain (both dotted and not dotted, tried both ways), enter name and value, enter path '/', check the session checkbox. I expect the cookie to be sent to the domain with requests. It doesn't get sent. After a while it disappears, i.e. the search can no longer find it.
    Promising but broken.

    EDIT to reply to the add-on's author's response:

    I know when cookies can be refreshed. The site in question is one I am developing, and the cookie is neither interacted with on the client side, nor ever set by the server; it's just a flag to enable certain debugging functionality and it used to be a GET param but we decided to switch to a cookie and use an add-on like yours to set it whenever we need.
    Unfortunately I don't have time to debug your add-on, I simply need one that JustWorks™, and in fact I found one.
    Hi your feedback is interesting;

    Nevertheless, I use this addon frequently and to my knowledge the use case you mention is functional...
    However, no project is immune to a bug and you should create an issue on the project submission so that we can better understand what you are trying to do. This platform is dedicated to managing bug reports and improvement proposals while addons-mozilla.org is dedicated notations.

    Basically a cookie can be refreshed/deleted by JavaScript code without reloading a page, or every time a page is viewed manually.
    If you put content in the cookie that the server does not recognize as valid or that does not match the content of other cookies on the same site, or if you put information from an expired session on the server side (you can't really know that), the server may decide at any time to delete or modify your cookie.
    This is totally independent of browser configuration or addon behavior.

    Have you tried to visualize the status of your cookie via the Firefox development tools Ctrl+Shift+K, "Storage" tab?

    You will find more information on these sites:


    "This is entirely up to the user agent, i.e. the user's browser, but usually, that will indeed be when the browser is closed"

    "Cookies that 'expire at end of the session' expire unpredictably from the user's perspective!"

    "If there is no expiry set on the cookie, then it is a session cookie and will live as long as the browser is open, and the sessionid is valid. If the server expires the authenticated sessions periodically, then the cookie will no longer be attached to a session on the server and will therefore be essentially null."

    EDIT to reply to the Rulatir's response:
    Have you thought about clicking on the button "Save the current cookie" to finalize the creation of your new cookie? I only see this explanation.

    I'm just asking for a full bug report describing the situation. As it stands I can only say that this addon works because I can not reproduce your approach on various sites I tested: The addon uses the Mozilla's APIs to create the cookies and the cookie is actually created in the database AND sent by GET requests with the other cookies.
  • I really want to like this add-on because the concept is great and the interface is good; however, there is a huge flaw. I will delete a cookie from a given website like Youtube using this Cookie Quick Manager but when I go into my Preferences>Privacy Security>Manage Data and open the folder, THE COOKIES ARE STILL THERE :(

    I generally love Firefox but I am furious how they changed the cookies. They used to be so easy to delete but now you have to jump through a lot of excessive hoops to delete your cookies. This is a nefarious attempt to favor tracking your behavior and is total garbage. I was hoping this add-on would liberate me from the cookie fiasco created by Firefox but I don't think it works for the aforementioned reason.
  • a worthy successor to the good old "Selective Cookie Delete". Especially the option to lock/unlock cookies is worth gold. What I would like to see is a quick option "Delete ALL cookies" (except the locked ones of course) right in the main menu, that would be really great. Saves the long-winded way via open Manager/scroll down/click trashcan-icon. Should be hopefully feasible - at least optionally, or via a keyboard shortcut? However, "thank you" for this useful add-on.
    Thanks for the review, I'm going to think about adding the option in the menu, I hope it will not be too confusing among the other deletion options.
  • Excellent plugin, simple and clear. As a developer I use it regularly, never failed me yet.
  • Feature request:
    Add a cookie manually.
    Hi, actually the column on the right, allows you to create a new cookie if you unlock the edition by clicking on the "edit" button at the bottom.
  • very bad UX.
    Hi, can you develop your review so that I can see what can be improved?
  • excellent
  • Очень удобно. В отдельных вкладках показывает куки только для хоста этих вкладок.
  • nice !! cool !!
  • very good, traduit parfaitement en tout lieu, très utile, merci
  • I Like It...
  • So far so good. I needed an extension to edit cookie values since Firefox Quantum removed this functionality from the F12 developer toolbar, and since Google recently changed its privacy opt out mechanisms (see Personal info & privacy > Tools you can use now) to expire opt-out cookies after random short durations (30 minutes or less in some cases) and randomly 'forget' certain opt out settings. This extension did the trick. I am not happy with FF Quantum's all-or-nothing privacy permissions but that's not the fault of this developer -- I appreciate the transparency of this developer in explaining why such broad permissions are needed by the extension.
  • Why it should have permission to modify privacy settings now?! What's required by specific features could be given by telling user what should be, and how to be edited, or at least provide an option to let extension asking users who needs these features to allow these permission.

    Edit 1: Thanks for your patiently reply. Despite that the permissions are required, this extension's context support helped me in time to perfectly experience FF Context feature.

    As for granting permission, there's a extension called "SiteDelta Highlight" on AMO you could refer to. Click into its settings page, which displays prompt "Advanced features (that require additional permissions) are disabled." with a button "Enable advanced features...".
    Then click on that button, Firefox will prompt it requires additional permissions. So I think it should be able to grant several parts of permissions separately.

    And a few advice:

    1. Add context to directly "move to container" rather than only "copy to"

    2. Ability to select multiple domain / multiple cookies at the same time

    3. Every button in the bottom has hang-over tool-tips except the first one from left (and the forth, well it's easy to guess it is for donating). So... the first button with a trash bin icon is so disturbing I don't know what scope it applies to, neither know if it will ask me to sure before doing something.

    4. Right-click context menu is not fully visible when click on item close to window border.

    5. Why I couldn't copy expired cookies to other container? if it's exist when I access its website it would seem to be refreshed, so it maybe useful, why can't move it?
    Hi, it's a good question; the need for access rights to the API "privacy" is already explained on the presentation page of the addon:
    Access and modify various privacy-related browser settings (the FirstPartyIsolation flag here).

    Detecting the status of the FirstPartyIsolation option is absolutely necessary from Firefox 58 for people who want to use this extra protection.
    This is a nightly feature that is currently not available other than through about:config for public versions of Firefox.

    The API is here:

    The way Firefox handles permissions is all or nothing: all permissions are granted or none of them are.
    To my knowledge I can not ask the user to selectively accept a permission and not another.

    If you have an example of this type of form, please create an issue on the GitHub so that I can explore that.
    In any case if the access to the privacy API is refused, the addon will not be able to manage the cookies created with the option FirstPartyIsolation activated, even if this one is deactivated later.

  • Great extension for both viewing ad deleting cookies. However, the latest update put in a "feature" Idon't like - the confirmation for deleting all cookies. There should be a way to turn it off once someone is used to the severe effects of this feature. I open individual sites in new private tabs in Firefox and so when finished, I need to remove all the cookies. I do this continually so I dislike having to confirm each time. There should be a way to turn it off.
    Another feature I like with the latest revision is the ability to auto-refresh. However, that feature only stays on until the next time I open Frefox. It should be persistent.
    Other than these two issues, this is a 5 star addon.
    Hi, thank you for the review.
    I will integrate the ability to bypass the alert dialog, and I will ensure that the state of the checkbox is the last selected by the user.
  • Works fine, but it is not particularly easy to find the cookies for the current page and quickly edit them
