  • Finally! A way to handle all the cookies, tracking, and other privacy bull pux! If you don't know how to setup containers, google or ask someone. Fortunately my really smart son feels the same about all the privacy issues and helps me! Your INTERNET provider collects ALL your data and sells it to multiple marketing companies, Homeland Security, & a plethora of other evil 3-letter .gov agencies! Just say NO to Google, Amazon, Facebook, etc monitoring ALL your browsing activity!
  • il refonctionnait et il vient juste de ne pas fonctioné
  • Temporary Containers give me error in Firefox 70, Win 7 Ultimate x64 and block totally the browser. Uninstall and new install do not help.

    On Linux Mint work excellent!

    EDIT: The problem was in Firefox. In the latest version 70.0.1 all is OK.
  • Terrific add-on, lets me essentially open mostly private tabs in a normal session. Would be nice if it had its own cookie blocking settings as well, all third party cookies being an example.
  • i give 5 if add custom proxy in tmp containers
  • Used to work fine. Now temporary containers goes crazy and keeps opening tabs until I shut down firefox.
  • This is the way that containers should have been implemented natively. Thanks for this add-on and the effort that you put into this.
  • One of my must have. It makes browser so much private by isolating every websites inside their own temporary container. Just remember to not accept third party cookies. After leaving site all cookies are deleted, but you still keep your history. If you want to keep cookies from one site (eg. to keep logged in), just create persistent (normal) container for this one site and check to always open this one site in its own container. It still gonna be isolated, but cookies won't be deleted.
  • great
  • Cool work :-)
    I'd rather have some more control of temporary container names/colours, though: when you open several temporary containers at the same time, having them only called “tmp1”, “tmp2”, etc. may be a little confusing (it's possible to change it in the preferences, but that's not really user-friendly).
    I wish the toolbar button could display a small popup allowing to select the name, colour and icon for the container (pre-filled with the automatic settings). Would it be possible?

    *EDIT after the answer* I thought it as an option (I presumed that was in the aims of the toolbar popup when activated, but sadly not). I agree that it should not be the default behaviour.
    Thanks!

    Since the Add-on is about temporary containers, having the option to change name/color/icon for already opened containers might lead to the impression that they're not really temporary but permanent instead - so I'll probably not implement such a feature.

    You can however long-click the new tab button, which reveals the container list and a "Manage Containers" button at the bottom, which is a quick-access to the container preferences where you could change its properties. Hope that helps.
  • Confusing interface and support docs. I couldn't get it to do what I thought it was supposed to do.
  • This useless addon reset Firefox, all my settings, customizations and addon settings wiped out. I had a pop-up from the addon about some error that it needed to do something and restart firefox and after that all my settings were lost.
    Sorry to hear that. Please note that Add-ons don't have the power (in terms of API access) to reset your Firefox / other Add-on Settings. So in your case something went wrong on Firefox's side and you might want to report that to bugzilla.mozilla.org instead. The error message is only shown if the Addon is unable to initialize correctly or access the storage, which only happens if Firefox fails somehow. I hope you have a profile backup. Best regards.
