I'M PISSED! FIREFOX AUTOMATICALLY ADDED COOKIE CONTROLLER Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I'm pissed! When Firefox updated to version 50, it added this addon without even asking me. When I first noticed it, I thought I had a virus. I quickly removed it. It is too cumbersome, and I am a programmer and computer expert.
The pulldown menus are way overdone.
Just noticed Firefox also just changed to update addons automatically. I don't want that. If I want to change something, I'll do it.

First class cookie manager Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Settled on this cookie add-on after trying many others as it does everything I could wish for with my cookies. Support is first class too.

False Security Rated 1 out of 5 stars

What concerns me about this plugin is that it provides a FALSE sense of security.

Try this simple test,
1. visit Twitter.com
2. Login to Twitter
3. Use Cookie Controller to delete ALL cookies
4. Load Ccleaner
5. Click Options,
6. Click Cookies
7. Type twi in search box

There will be 6 twitter cookies remaining including that for the main twitter site.

It is not just twitter, hundreds of cookies remain, so is this plugin fit for purpose?

If Ccleaner can see them so can anything else.

Not good Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Ask about cookies - NOT work. Everything else is rubbish here. Cookie Моnster are much better than this.

Ask about Cookies has been removed from Firefox and no longer shows in the Cookie Controller menus for versions which don't support it.

Saved me so much time Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I started blocking cookies by default some months ago,
and make manual selective rules for the sites i keep visiting to keep cookies forever or for session,and for some site sublevels that became confusing,
but with this thing i can do that so easy and fast on over 300 sites by opening the site and 2 clicks to set the cookie preference, i love it thank you very much you sir are a genius.
I can also selective delete cookies and dom storage for each site i am on.

It Works Rated 5 out of 5 stars

On Firefox 48.0.2 64bit. Easy to clear cookies for specific site with two clicks, and switch between Cookies allowed/denied for session.

Great add-on but french "translation" is gibberish Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I find this add-on very useful to quickly set the cookie permissions for a site without going through the options tab.

The french "translation" however is gibberish. It was probably made by google translate. I had to manually try the different icons to find out what they meant.

I couldnt find a way of having the add-on in english while keeping my firefox in french.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.5). 

Updated translations are always welcome at Babelzilla :) I can check that a translation bears some relation to the original, but I can't fully check some of the more complex expressions. We can discuss further in the support forum if you like.

Has been a good plugin Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Since the last weeks this plugin keeps my Browser from deleting all cookies on shutdown, as I've set via my preferences.

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

For the most part it works great, but lately it's started refreshing the page whenever I toggle cookies on and off. It didn't used to do that, and that's actually been causing me a lot of trouble. I really hope future updates include a way to opt out of this.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.4). 

This is a requested feature and has been there for years. It is default "off", so the preference must have got turned on somehow. Check the options on the Firefox tools menu.

Ask cookie option gone? Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I installed this add-on because FF decided to do away with the Ask me every time option. On the sample pages for Cookie Controller there is an option listed that says Ask about cookies. Unfortunately there is no such option currently, thereby defeating the purpose of having the add-on. Is that because it linked to the old FF option or was it removed for another reason.
Will reconsider if the option is still available, somewhere.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.4). 

The option is gone because the function is gone. In versions of Firefox that won't ask you about cookies, Cookie Controller will not let you set that configuration.

One of the best cookie management add-on! Thank you.

A great add-on, but now broken. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I am using Firefox 45.1.0, and the "about:permissions" option has ceased to function. Any suggestions?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.3). 

Firefox has removed the about:permissions page, so it isn't possible to open it any more. I'll look into a way of removing the menu item intelligently so for example if someone replaces about:permissions with an addon it will still show.

Quite a nice addon Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Simple and easy to use. I would, however, like to offer a couple suggestions for new options:

(1) Automatically delete cookies for a site if you switch to "Cookies denied"

(2) Auto refresh the page if you change the setting for the site

Both of these options are included in "Cookie Monster", which is a similar addon. But since I like "Cookie Controller" better overall, I believe adding those two new features would make it almost perfect.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.3). 

There is already an option to auto-reload one or all pages. I'll look into auto-expiring cookies to reflect permission changes, but that isn't as clearcut as it might appear.

Great but just one little problem observed Rated 4 out of 5 stars

The only significant problem that I have but cannot resolve is that Cookie Controller prevents uploading of Photos in Facebook. The only way I can find to 'al;low' it is to set to the 'cookies On' state. Even creating exceptions for Facebook does not resolve it.

It would be nice to be able to create a specific 'setting' for Facebook to allow uploading.

Google NID cookie. Delete issue... Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Nice addon, plese keep good work!

Now, I have noticed one "a little bit annoying" issue.
Every time one visits google.com, he gets a "NID" cookie, which might gie him a unique ID to his google-settings.
This is ok so.

Now, when I click on the Cookie Controller button to delete this (session) cookie, it does NOT get deleted.
I must click "delete all cookies" to have it deleted.

Find a bug Rated 1 out of 5 stars

updated to 4.7, Cookie Controller menu can not be found anywhere. Recovery to 4.6 is OK。

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.7). 

Yes, version 4.7 does not work for non-English locales. This is fixed in version 5.0.

Has Great Potential! Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Excellent extension, but has a significant Achille's heel.

All the cookie settings are lost when the user clears Site Preferences. The extension does not store these important preferences separately so they can be reapplied when Site Preferences are cleared.

This is a 5-Star extension when that issue is fixed.

UPDATE: iann (the Developer) added an export/import feature, which is a step in the right direction. If an option is added to automatically apply an import when the user clears Firefox's Site Preferences, that would be great.

Mozilla currently combines "Site Preferences" with many other pieces of data, requiring it to be frequently cleared in order to prevent HSTS abuse, which can track you and even reveal your browser history.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.6). 

Yes, settings are lost when you delete them. If you want to delete all your permissions, I'm not going to try and stop you. Perhaps the export/import feature will be helpful to restore cookie-related settings if you accidentally delete them.

Be in control of cookies! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Must have for those who want to be in control of cookies!

Thanks for this Extension!

Best cookie manager Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Is it possible to backup my rules or options? I'm reinstalling Firefox and i don't want to whitelist or toggle the "only 1st party allowed" option on every site again.
