Edit for update on 2011 October 14, 00:08, EDT: There's still a conflict, but I just discovered after several hours of testing that it's between Biscuit 2.1.4 and Better Privacy 1.67. Curiously, the conflict between them affects Session Manager 7.7. Disable one or the other cookie manager and Session Manager works fine. I have no idea why that would be the case but it is... Wish there was some way to contact the developer directly.
Original review below: I'm running XP SP3 and FX 7.0.1. It seems there's an issue between Biscuit 2.1.4 and Session Manager 7.7. When Biscuit is active, session manager will not display a list of sessions from which I can choose. The initial Session Manager window displays "rolled up" (only the title bar is visible); I have to manually drag the bottom of the title bar so I can see the window's contents.The only buttons active in that window are Resume Session and Cancel. When I click the former, only my homepage tab is loaded when Firefox presents its UI. I have to manually load my previous session from one of the Session Manager toolbar button's sub-menus. I'm not sure when this conflict first presented itself but these two add-ons used to work together.
I have used Biscuit for 2 years now with Palemoon browser but it is no longer compatible with Palemoon v26 and v27. Works fine in v25 and below. Please try to update the extension to work with newer versions of Palemoon. Thanks for the fine extension and would like to continue using it in future versions of Palemoon.
If you use LastPass, this addon is perfect for ensuring that you do not need to keep signing-in everytime a new browser session is started.
Biscuit Firefox Extension -- Session Cookies Also Preserved
LastPass Icon -- General >> Automatically Fill Login Information
Firefox -- Privacy >> Show Cookies: check lastpass.com cookie folder -- Accepts Cookies From Sites >> Keep Until: They Expire -- Accepts Cookies From Sites >> Accept Third-Party Cookies: Always
Getting the configuration right can be fiddly, so hopefully the above will be of some use with this.
Also, the above configuration is not recommended unless you are also using some form of 2FA (2 Factor Authentication); otherwise someone else using your browser would have direct access to all your passwords!
I like to have my browser history, cookies etc clean on a fresh start of the browser. However this becomes a bit annoying when using two token authentication with Google services as naturally the cookies required by google to remember that this computer has two-token-authenticated will be forgotten. One might reason that its a bad idea to keep the cookies but the computer in question is drive encrypted and in my possession. I only want the two token authentication when I'm on other computers.
This addon lets me keep just the cookies from accounts.google.com and wiping the rest of the cache at shutdown of Firefox.
It does not delete the Cookie that has not been protected even if you press the button on the Remove All Cookies. Cookie of the time, etc. As an example, access to the Google News (Name: PREF , Domain: google.com). 27 version of Firefox is β. This situation has continued from Firefox 27β.
The obligatory 5 star rating I promised once my small pet peeves are taken care of. :-)I would still like to propose some modifications:-Make it possible to contact you to report suggestions or bugs. Right now one has to (ab)use AMO's review system to do so. ;-)-Add an option "Preserve cookies for x days" so that the preserved cookies get cleaned up after a specified amount of time.-Firefox' initial size of cookies.sqlite is 512 kb and it increments it in 512 kb steps in order to reduce file fragmentation. Maybe this would be an option for Biscuit's replacement SQLite as well.Anyway, good work!
You have to mark the cookies which shoud get preserved manually in the cookies manager. Session cookies are just a special kind of cookies which usually get deleted by the browser at the end of the session (independently of Biscuit). You can override this behavior via the "session cookies are preserved" option, although I know no reason to do so.
This add-on solved my cookies dilemma. I have used several cookies extensions in the past, but I don't like to need to allow or disallow cookies every time I visit a site. Now I can simply allow all cookies, configure Firefox to delete them on exit and use Biscuit to keep only those I need. BTW, I don't experience any problems with it, like mentioned by other users and I can actually select all cookies from a domain. Well done.
The addon is brilliant. Though, it is buggy. I do not know, maybe it is because of FF4. Anyway, you have to select the cookies one by one (and not the folders) in order for this to work. Also, you need to click Remove All Cookies, after marking the cookies, if you do not want them to be deleted by Clear Recent History.
This works well in the 4.0 Mac beta. You can shift+click to select the cookies you want and then right+click to simultaneously "Check" them all. You can also protect individual cookies for each domain.
