CookieKiller

I LUV my CookieKiller! Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

At last...a cookie add-on which has the features I've been looking for AND, also, provides cookie deletion "convenience". I happen to want cookies off my computer ASAP most of the time, and so I find myself spending much time throughout the day constantly opening the Firefox Cookie Manager and deleting them. It gets tiresome doing that, but if I'm going to be "paranoid", at least I'm glad Firefox offers me the opportunity do so! Sometimes I disable first party cookies (never 3rd party cookies) and a lot of websites do work without enabling first party cookies, but for the many that don't work, I again find myself reaching for the FF Cookie Manager a lot --- and I do mean "a lot". Anyway, I periodically have been searching through the Firefox add-ons, looking for something that would allow me a much faster and convenient way of deleting cookies. For the last 3 years, I've heard about many cookie extensions that are very popular, but after reading about them, I would discover they were not quite what I was looking for. On September 19, I viewed "all" the cookie extensions Firefox offers (very time consuming!) and found 3 add-ons that interested me, and so I downloaded them, which included "CookieKiller". After viewing how they actually worked, it was an easy decision for me to uninstall them...EXCEPT for "CookieKiller"!

I never wanted anything fancy, or bloated with things I didn't need, or basically duplicates of the Firefox Cookie Manager. CookieKiller is a time-saver and contains the options I've been looking for:
(1) View cookies on current website from an "easy accessible location"
(2) View cookies accumulated on other websites, also - for those times I wish not to delete all cookies instantly
(3) Block cookies
(4) Unblock cookies
(5) Kill current website cookies
(6) Kill all cookies except current website cookies
(7) Kill all cookies
(8) Enable permanent blocking of removed cookies
(9) Only show top-level domains in menu
.......I personally don't check this option because I prefer to see the related domains, also. AND I discovered a nice surprise when I first saw cookies listed from a website with the related domains listed. The subdomains are "indented", which allows me to quickly differentiate between websites instantly and, also, quickly "kill" off the subdomain(s) if I wish. Example:
mozilla.org
....addons.mozilla.org
In this case, I might wish to quickly delete the subdomain, "addons.mozilla.org", but leave the main domain linger awhile longer. Again, I really like the "indent" feature.

This is simply terrific, and so to the developer of this simple but unique extension, who stated:
"I developed CookieKiller for my personal use and decided to release it in case anyone else might find it useful."
I am s-o-o-o-o happy you decided not to keep this for just your personal use. Thank you for sharing...and "hats off to you", Joseph Moran!

NOTE: I would like to submit a request for the developer's consideration.
Regarding "closing of the icon".
QUESTION:
Since the icon stays open when I "don't" delete a cookie and I need to close the icon myself, would it be possible to have the icon continue to stay open when I "do" delete a cookie, allowing me to to delete a 2nd cookie while it is still open...instead of having to reopen the icon for deletion of a second cookie? (I hope that doesn't sound like I want to be spoon-fed, too!)

NetVideoHunter

AMEN...AT LAST! Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

I was just notified of your update and immediately did so. I've had the Net Video Hunter disabled for awhile, but I was not in anyway shape or form going to uninstall it...I've just been hoping that a fix would soon come so that I could use it for YouTube. I was so anxious to use it that I didn't pay close enough attention to the instructions for using it on YouTube and thought it still didn't work. BUT...when I took a "closer" look at the instructions, I tried downloading once again, and "VOILA"...magic!

Thank you so very, very much for this G-R-E-A-T extension; simple but unique. I can't imagine just how many happy campers there will be within the next few days as users discover Net Video Hunter is in tip-top shape and is on the prowl once again!

As I type this comment, I find that I am sitting here and simply "smiling"! THANK YOU!

P.S. I rate this a 10!

Startpage HTTPS Privacy Search Engine

Great "Privacy" Search Engine! Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

I have been using the Startpage search engine (formerly when only called Ixquick) for nearly one year now, and knowing that my searches are being kept private with HTTPS & not stored anywhere by Startpage is a welcome relief and of great comfort! I have only occasionally used Google since I switched (like rwizard posted before me, you can still use any other search engine you want to).

RE: My incident when the name changed from Ixquick to Startpage.
I was using "Ixquick" as my home page and they happened to switch over to their newly created name of "Startpage" just after I had exited my Firefox one day. A few minutes later when I opened Firefox again, I saw "Startpage" as my home page instead of my "Ixquick", and I thought someone was hijacking my PC! For whatever reason, I decided to exit Firefox immediately. I didn't get a chance to open my browser for another 15 minutes, and when I did, that "Startpage" was gone and "Ixquick" was back! So I went to Ixquick's website and contacted them, informing them that something called "Startpage" had overtaken their Ixquick on my home page for about 15 minutes and thought they should know what happened. I quickly received a reply from Ixquick telling me not to worry, that they had just changed over to calling it "Startpage" because that would be a much easier name for everyone to remember! I have contacted them twice; each time receiving a quick response and they were extremely friendly & informative.

When I stopped into this website to check out some information, I was really surprised to find only one review, and also surprised that more users haven't downloaded yet. Once more people hear about this wonderful "private" search engine, I can only assume that the users will multiply quickly!!!

To Startpage: Thank you very much for this wonderful search engine. It's a breath of fresh air to know "some" people really do care about users' privacy concerns!

Ghostery

Problem...Temp Solution for Others Experiencing Same Problem Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

First - briefly - I upgraded Firefox yesterday from version 3.0.11 to version 3.0.12 on my Windows 2000 Professional PC, and then I upgraded Ghostery to the new 2.0 version.

PROBLEM: The new 2.0 version's "Options" BOX is "TOO BIG...TOO LONG VERTICALLY" for complete viewing, and therefore the "save" & "cancel" buttons/bars at the very end of the Options box are not within viewing site...which means (1)you can't "save" your selections & (2)you can't "cancel" the Ghostery window from view either (so it ends up on your desktop when you exit Firefox).

After accidentally being allowed to see the "save" button at one point yesterday on my desktop, I finally figured out just how I did it, and so...
...for anyone else experiencing this same problem and who is interested in a "temporary work-around" for getting this Options box to visibly show in order to actually "save" or "cancel" your options...
...perhaps this will work for you as well.

Here is "my" TEMPORARY WORK-AROUND SOLUTION:
(1) OPEN Ghostery OPTIONS
(this, of course, will not show you the "save/cancel" buttons!)
(2) GO TO your DESKTOP, and bring up the windows page of Ghostery to display on the desktop (if box is not already showing)
(3) PLACE your CURSOR in an OPEN SPACE on the DESKTOP & DOUBLE-CLICK the OPEN SPACE...
(4) Move/SLIDE the "MOUSE" back OVER "ANY" PART OF THE OPTIONS BOX...
...VOILA! The BOTTOM of the Options box has shifted high enough upwards to allow you to see part of the 2 boxes you previouisly could not see: "SAVE" & "CANCEL"
NOW YOU CAN SELECT WHICH ONE YOU WANT!

To the developer: Thank U so very much for the "blocking" options - which now truly makes this a terrific add-on! Hmmm...just please, please "shorten" the vertical length of the Options BOX soon, so that it will work normally...for everyone, ok? Again, thank U so much!

Ghostery

New Version 2.0.1 is FANTASTIC Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

My particular problem of having the Options box too large to fit my PC screen (listed on July 23) has now been solved with this new updated 2.0.1 version out today (July 31), located in the Sandboxed add-on area (http://bit.ly/ghostery-2-0-1)! It really is nice to have a "regular-sized" Optons Box, again!

In addition, I also like the way it shows how many trackers have been blocked right in the icon tray without even clicking the icon; example --- "Blocked: 2 of 2"

Now...if I could only give you a higher than 5-star rating, I would!
Thank you, again, and please do continue with the great work you are doing. It is so nice to have you helping us with privacy issues!

Hmmm...can you tell I'm a wee bit excited here?
