It should be able to delete by domain. Else, sites redirecting to other sections of the same site don't get erased...
Can you elaborate on what you would like to see added in C'nF ?
Maybe you can fill a request in here: http://closenforget.mozdev.org/bugs.html
Cette application est très utile ..... un grand merci au développeur!
good add on, but can make it like chrome add on "tab cookies"
This is an incredibly useful Add-on. One thing I really wish you could do is set it up so that when you close a tab "normally" the Add-on engages, rather than having to use the contextual menu item or the toolbar button. In other words, it would be great if this Add-on could change the default behavior in Firefox. There is a similar Add-on for Chrome that does this and it is incredibly useful.
With Firefox 10.0 removed cookie info stay forever? When I put mouse over it, he move to another side of the browser (left/right). I must restart Firefox to remove this info.
Thanks for the report: the bug has been found and fixed with version 0.11.4.
Nice. Any chance of making it delete also the flash cookies? Hahaha =P
Edit - Also, it'd be handy if there was an option to close and remove cookies of all right/similar tabs and or closing and removing with double/middle click =)
Merci benoitb et cher compatriote et/ou frncophone :)
Ce p'tit bijou (je pense à l'extension, l'autre je la connais pas !) commence à faire parler de lui au-delà de ces pages-ci. Un le concept correspond à une demande, deux ça fonctionne, ça roule raoûl, Que demander de plus ?
P.S. mieux avec le beau n'icône, merci au nom de tous !
Merci pour ces encouragements ! Cette extension répondait initialement à un besoin purement personnel, et je suis très satisfait de constater qu'elle est utile à d'autres.
Thanks for your support ! This extension have been initially built for my own needs. It's nice to see that it can be usefull for other people.
Merci Benoît pour cet outil remarquable qui nous évite d'être tracé par les éditeurs de réseaux sociaux et aussi par Google.
Everything works exactly like it says. it's a MUST for every FF browser. thanks for the great work!
Hi. Can you check that, with the 0.11.2 version, the context menu no longer have the button if you check the right option ?
After habing a go a this; even with reading the reviews. I have to say, I am some what saddened to the fact that the author their-self seems to have closed this project and forgotten about it.. I suppose it it their right. Unfortunately, there is are allot of great add-on ideas, some get this far, but then interest is lost in updating.
Concept excellent, but it doesn’t do what it says on the tin.. (look under the hood!)
it would be great, if there was an option to ALWAYS remove cookies when you leave a page (not only by using that special button or shortcut). that's what ive been looking for for quite some time.
I have long been looking for such an extension and now I've found one! Excellent extension! Nothing superfluous, but perfectly fulfills its primary function! Thanks a LOT!
Useful for removing cookies after browsing.
The history cleaning function would also be very useful, if it worked - but it doesn't. Do not use this addon to clear your history! You should use another addon like "Stealther" or "Distrust" instead, if you want to make sure all history entries are removed.
The developer warns that "In some rare cases, the browser history may not be cleared totally." However, the cases are not rare at all! Just click on any .jpg image, or a page anchor link, a link to a php download script, or many other kinds of common everyday links, and you will see they are not removed from the history, when using the "remove all pages viewed from the browser's history" option. Those URLs will remain in your history, and will show up when typing in the address bar, for example.
The developer has acknowledged the bug, and has been very helpful in working to try to fix it, but says he is unable to. See https://www.mozdev.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=22094 for more info. I have asked him to remove the function from the addon, because some people are still trying to use it, and may not see the warning - see the review from TrAsHeR51 for example.
So, three stars for the cookie-cleaning function, but just "close'n forget" about the history cleaning, unfortunately it's broken and seems that it won't be fixed.
Pretty nice app for those of use with Tin foil on our heads! =)
Browsing history, privacy and security is one click away!
Löscht Cookies & History - weg damit;-)
Very useful. If you "close'n forget" the webs that you opened but weren't really useful/interesting, searching in FF awesome bar will bring you just the pages you really would like to see (as it shows you the history too).
No need to bookmark everything then, just those special ones...
here you can click on tab, and don't need to go to the history...
and some more options as you can see on screenshots...
What's the difference between this add-on and FF's new "Forget This Site" feature?
but 1 problem... when trying to close the inactive tabs it's closing the active...
I would have to say this is a cool add-on. Certainly very helpful. I have just installed it, and have started loving it. However, I must agree with Paul Leger : Not working with redirections, that we must at least have a check box in the preferences to clean up the from the top of the re-direction. thanks.
I love Close 'n forget, but I do have one issue to report. If I only have a single tab open, Close 'n forget doesn't blank it, as it would do if I used the close button.
Admittedly, I haven't checked if cookies are erased, but if the tab isn't blanked...
Amazing Add-On, I've Been Using It For A While Now!
Quite good plug-in, but not ideal, certainly. In any case when it is necessary to erase traces of visiting of a adalt site, this addon the best.
Reason I couldn't find button was theme incompatibility(believe I was using chromifox extreme.
Installed HiViS theme and button showed up,extra star
If yes, can you please elaborate on http://closenforget.mozdev.org/bugs.html ?
Maybe do you use another add-on conficting, or a theme/skin with different button.
