Not working if 1 tab open Rated 4 out of 5 stars

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.

Is it a bug report ?

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.

Version 0.7 works well.
I make use of this extension routinely because it removes cookies in addition to history.

Great extension. I would prefer an entry on the tab context menu rather than the page option menu. Also, would it be possible to "Mark" a tab to "Close'n forget" while it is still open, then if I just close it normally its still forgotten ?

Not working with redirections Rated 3 out of 5 stars

When I go to google.com I am redirected to the google site of my country. Using close and forget when I'm finished, does not erase the cookie set by google.com. It only erases the cookie of google..

Intentional behaviour

The behaviour that you describe is intentional. The purpose of the add-on is to sweep as much data as possible when closing a tab. But the boundary between that and an excess of cleaning is not easy to define. So the choice has been made to remove cookies ONLY for the domain (more or less : see options) of the currently displayed page. I may think again at that feature, but please use the Support/Assistance link to submit a "new bug" with "severity" fixed to "enhancement".
Thank you for your feedback.

Recapturing Privacy after Site Visits... Rated 5 out of 5 stars


Thank You benoitb !

I have your extensions Close Button on my Toolbar
just to the right of my Location Bar and use it
to close all Open Tabs with few exceptions.

I especially enjoy the options of allowing me to
choose to 'keep' my session history of 'sites' that
I have visited in my recent history but killing the
sites tracking cookies when I close that site.

Websites Track and Share Cookies via huge networks
to deliver 'targeted advertising' so they claim.
This is just fine within one site/domain to target
clicks and ads as cookies used this way ARE valuable
for click information, content, and shopping carts
logins and more...

However Close'n forget puts some history privacy
back in the hands of the average user and
stops the perverse desires to Profile, Track, Store
& then TARGET millions of users per second
long after they have left the site or domain !

To gain the Full Benefits of Close'n forget, it would be
advisable to "uncheck the box" to NOT ACCEPT
ANY third-party cookies via Tools/Options/Privacy Tab.

With Close'n forget Addon and no third-party cookies
allowed it is now possible to eliminate upwards of 99%
of all websites attempts from loading millions of megabytes
per second on millions of unsuspecting users hard drives.

There are still a few websites that will manage to get
cookies past the above protection and then track users
up to the year 2037 as they visit completely unrelated sites.

These 1% rogue cookies will be removed when
you restart firefox providing you have Cookies
to be kept only 'until I close Firefox' in Mozilla's
Tools/Options/Privacy Tab setting.

Many users enjoy combining the 'Cookie Manager Button'
extension to the Toolbar ( I have replaced the blue
button image for the Cookie Manager Button with a better one).

Now you can simply make one click and can view any
rogue cookies that got forced through using domain
spoofing techniques and then Delete them right
there in the Cookie Manager with one click.

Long Live Mozilla...

Nope Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Doesn't work. I tried closing the tab multiple times with the new close button and nothing happens.

Superb! request. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Been using this since the day this came out. Love this to death. However, now I've developed a tendency to click on it more often than I should, and I find that's rather annoying when checking for email and such task. Can I request for an option where this addon doesn't erase the web pages that are already in my bookmark?

Adkat, you need to do as the author says to do:

After installing the extension, find the new "close" button in the toolbar customization panel and drop it in your prefered place
---

So, click on your toolbar, go to 'customize' look for the Close n' Forget and drag and drop it where you want it.

Love the idea, but like some of the other reviewers, I don't get a Close button to add to the toolbar. Could an option be added to the Tools menu as well? I'm running Firefox 3 on Ubuntu 8.10.

"Works for me" unless pointed out "undo close tab" issue. If aim is to remove from history then why poke to 'undo close' in the first place??? Whiners should test on clean profile before blaming. Since add-on states nothing about privacy & works as expected. For privacy try other add-ons "Stealther" or "Distrust" or wait FF3.1...

Don't Forget Cookies? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Is it possible to have an option to make Delete Cookies optional too?

That means instead of just one option, Remove from History, have another option -- Remove Cookies.

Thanks

Doesn't work for me either... sounds like a good idea though.

Great idea, but it's not working for me at all. Author provides no facility for bug reports.
