Important Add-on for Me Rated 5 out of 5 stars
If there is ever a clash with another Add-on I won't give up this one. It's so good for keeping cookies in check. Recently Google search site was taking 30 seconds to load (almost a blank page?). There were over 40 google cookies tracking everything and manipulating my session (SEME). Removed them easily and then it loaded in 2 seconds. I notice others are requesting a white-list of cookies. Would it be easier to leverage the current built-in search facility and have blacklist entries like "*google*" , "ebay", etc. in the form of search terms? This seems better from my perspective, because some retention is desirable, but I especially would like to clear down particular abusers like google by using a timed delete to prevent build-up.
Thank you for such a nice program.
Great features Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Advanced cookie manager works great and the cookie monitor is a very useful and unique feature.
I was not impressed to see background connections from facebook wanting to load an fb like button in an iframe.That's totally ridiculous behaviour for a browser extension.
Because this addon violates the privacy of my Firefox browser, I can really only give this one star.

icon disappeared from the control panel Rated 5 out of 5 stars
How to run the application, if the icon is nowhere.
The icon should be present on the toolbar. (This can be added/removed by customizing the toolbar).
Apart from this, you can also find a menu item in Tools menu.
Toolbar button issue Rated 5 out of 5 stars
It has an issue after FF43 update. The toolbar button became huge. I use FT DeepDark theme. Is it add-on issue or theme's issue?
Thanks a lot and all others, who brought this issue to my notice. This issue is fixed now, and awaiting review, and hopefully will be available for you in couple of days.
Thanks a lot for support once again.

Easy to keep your cookies the way you want them.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.8.1-signed).
Cookies in Private Browsing Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Could you make it so that I can manage cookies used in private browsing as well?This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.8.1-signed).
feature request Rated 4 out of 5 stars
as mentioned by others, cookie protection or some sort of whitelist that is immune to cookie clearing so when clean the browser only the cookies in the whitelist or some protected list are kept, also most time you have cookies you want on a site but they also have tracking or ad related cookies so most users wanting a cookie manager are going to want a way to separate and will only settle for a cookie manager that is capable.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.8.1-signed).

I suggest to add format setting of the exported cookie file, like MSIE or mozilla format.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.7.1-signed).
Rated 3 out of 5 stars
A seemingly very sophisticated extension with tons of features that can benefit power users. Unfortunately the functionality that I downloaded it for - the ability to auto import backed up cookies doesn't work the way I would assume. It only imports them once you have clicked the CM icon / opened the add on menu instead of just performing that import when firefox loads. So it not truly auto-import - more of a one-click import. Looking at the script, I see that its not just a bug - it doesn't appear to be designed that way. The import function isn't called until the CM dialog loads. Instead could you perhaps instead set up a function which observes topics in the nsIObserverService and then calls an import function somewhere during the process of Firefox loading?This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.7.1-signed).

Hi, thanks for your response.
While auto-loading a cookie set on starting firefox would be useful for say, duckduckgo user preferences, I can see how it would be preferable not to auto-load in other usages so it would have to be an optional setting to cover everybody's needs I think.
It's fine as it is anyway, it's only one click to load my cookie file which is no trouble. I just wanted to check that the add-on was working properly and that I was using it correctly.
Thank you :-)
Fine program, sneaky devs Rated 2 out of 5 stars
Program works as expected however when clicking on the Cookie Manager icon, the following request to facebook is made:
Bit scummy isn't it?
Don't appreciate applications submitting content on my behalf. Please remove this 'feature'.
No, this is not submitting any content on your behalf
This facebook request is only to show the number of likes from users and similar feature is used by millions of sites across the world. If you keenly observe, you can notice that, there is no user related info in the request. Hope you understand this and review your rating once.

I tried it. It's somewhat useful, but I immediately noticed two issues: First, although I can select a set of many cookies, pressing delete appears to only delete one. Second, pressing enter closes the window (very annoying).This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.7.1-signed).
May work for the *nerds*, but us "dummies" need support! Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Ive tried your product in an attempt to "Control" my nearly 4000 cookies! They just seem to spawn like demons.. but in any case, when I clicked on your HELP button I was totally disappointed. I have no idea HOW to use it, or what terms such as isSecure or isSession are about or how to use them. If you have a user manual available for us dummies .. Please Advise! - Thank YouThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.7.1-signed).
I agree that there is not enough documentation for this tool, but as this is advanced tool to access cookies on firefox, this tool expects the user to know the basics of cookie (like session cookie, secure flag etc).
If you want to know more about cookies itself, below is one of the best starting point.

I see two identical "CM" icons in the "Customize toolbar" window
(where you can add or remove icons to or from the tool bar).
One should be enough, shouldn't it?

Windows 7 x64Using Firefox 26.0Intel QX6850/8GB DDR2/SSDI put Firefox thru it's paces - at any time i have 100+ tabs open spread among several TabGroups representing different projects. Of course re-starting Firefox only loads pinned tabs and the last tab on the active TabGroup.I've been using ACM for a few months, it always does good job finding and clearing target cookies. But it's S-L-O-W. Upon opening the ACM add-on, Task Manager shows Firefox as "Not responding" for at least 1 minute before ACM allows me to type domain name into search filter. And once i start typing it grinds again between individual letters. Seemed to get worse over time until finally today it failed to respond after @ 5 minutes so I had to crash Firefox. When it came back up ACM worked but again slow as molasses between individual typed letters in search filter.As a part of weekly hygiene I completely clear the following:- Cookies- Cache- Active Logins- Site Prefs- Form/Search History- Offline Website DataI'm sure it's due to the heavy demands i make of Firefox, but Firefox itself is fine, as are all other add-ons.+3 stars because it does what it promises, so the design is fundamentally sound ... but it has serious resource-efficiency issues (-2 stars).
Waiting for 2 more stars..
In the recent version (5.7...awaiting full review) of ACM, I have made a few changes, which improves the performance of the filters. I even tried with huge data and found reasonably fast enough. Hope, it meets your expectations this time.
Let me know, if you still see the slowness.

Good one, shows details stored in individual cookies, gives monitoring, export, import option of cookies.-One drawback: couldn't find setting to allow sorting of displayed cookies on the basis of main domain name only (ignoring sub domains, bringing all cookies of a main domain together, irrespective of subdomains). That would be a helpful addition that brings all cookies of a domain together thus helping in deleting them together.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.5.1-signed).
Thanks a lot for your feedback.
I guess your requirement can be achieved by filtering domains and selecting (multiple) only required domains.
Also, in the new version (5.6), exclude filter is introduced and that also should simplify this requirement.
If the above doesn't work, please provide more details, so the I can work on implementing it.
