Works in FF45 if Global Override is disabled Rated 5 out of 5 stars

To get this extension working again in firefox 45 I had to uncheck the option "Enable Global Cookie Permissions Override" in Cookie Monster configuration (and restart the browser). With that option enabled CM doesn't work on my computer.

Unusable with the update. Please update! When it works I consider this the easier cookie extension.

FF 45 - site recognition issue Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Was so happy that it worked again correctly in the latest builds but now it has problems with site recognition - it always shows domains of previous sites in the icon menu.
I really hope that this can be fixed in the near future since I really need this add-on...

Best regards

Mac Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Broken on FF 45.

Thank You

I am aware of this and am debating whether to set the compatibility back to 44. For what it is worth, the report sent to me by Mozilla indicated no problems whatsoever with Cookie Monster and FF 45.

This add on is broken in FF45 on Mac. The developer is aware.

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 resolved.

UPDATE: Many thanks to s1tony (the Developer) for his considerate response to my review. It sounds like an implementation trade-off. Maybe someday he can make it withstand clearing Site Preferences. Thank you again s1tony for your response.

Site Preferences

Thank you for the feedback. One of the design principles of Cookie Monster was to utilize built-in Firefox functionality when possible, in order to keep it fast and lean.

In Firefox, cookie settings are considered site preferences and as such, when a user clears preferences for a site, this does include cookie preferences for the site.

Works faultlessly for me Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've tried almost every cookies add-on, and I've written rave reviews for some, only to have them start giving me problems after a couple of weeks. So I've been frightened to write a review of this one in case the same thing happened, but, no, everything is fine. I am using it on both XP and 8.1 machines where it does exactly what it should do and it isn't affecting anything else.
You don't need to have in-depth technical knowledge about cookies to use it (though I'm sure it helps!) I have just a couple of sites set to accept cookies, a handfull are set to allow Session Cookies, and the rest are blocked. If any of the blocked sites needs cookies for me to log in, then I select Temporarily Allow Cookies.
My only regret is not having found Cookie Monster first.

More About Pale Moon

Bob,

Would you be so kind as to email me to tell me more about Pale Moon?

Thanks,

"Invalid Hostname Entered" Rated 3 out of 5 stars

When I close FF 43.0.1 I get a popup error message, "Please enter a valid hostname." I disabled all of my extensions, enabling them one-by-one and found Cookie Monster is the one causing the error message. I'm using CM 1.3.0.0, and this issue began after upgrading from FF42 to FF43.0.1.

Edit:
Tony,
No, I don't use any IPv6 address.

Do you use any IPv6 addresses?

Follow Up on Temp Cookies Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Dfoulkes, I appreciate the comment, but my settings are still set to reject all cookies and I've cycled that setting back and forth and the results are the same.

FIgure This Out

notgonnatellya,

I would rather have somebody contact me to see if we can figure out what is happening in their situation. After your first review, I double-checked and for me, the Temp Cookies are working as they should. Please feel free to send me an email.

Thanks.

Tony

All is now working fine. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

'notgonnatellya'

In case you read this... I was having the exact same issues and even emailed the author, who responded very quickly, and after working with him, checking my basic Firefox Options settings for cookies... it was found that those Firefox settings had changed via one of the Firefox updates... and that messed up how C.M. function... I found that the Firefox update had changed the cookie settings to Accept all cookies... and that is not what I used to have. I work on the MozillaZine board and have hit on others where their Options changed after updating Firefox. To others who may have problem... check your cookie settings in your Options.

Thank You for the Response

I really appreciate the wonderful users of Cookie Monster looking out for us and helping with responding to other user's concerns!

Please fix bugs with ipv6 Rated 2 out of 5 stars

The concept of the add on is great. However, the add on breaks the firefox experience when ipv6 is used. Firefox starts popping out windows that say "please enter a valid ip address". Here, there is no indication that the issue is cookie monster, so one thinks that it is Firefox itself to have issues. Please provide a fix. To complicate matters further, the "support site" link on the add on web page does not work.

Version 1.3.0.0 is Great Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Many thanks s1tony for updating this add-on. It's an absolutely essential part of my Firefox browsing, and I have been using it for years.

BTW, I don't understand why Mozilla still says "This add-on has been preliminarily reviewed by Mozilla". It has said that for a very long time, through previous versions as well, and you'd think they would have gotten it *fully* reviewed by now.

Firefox add-on signing is taking a suspiciously long time Rated 3 out of 5 stars

According to the firefox blog:

https://blog.mozilla.org/addons/2016/01/06/add-ons-update-75/

95% of addons get reviewed within 5 days and they review more than 500 addons per week, why has cookie monster been at <#100 for more than a month?

If some validation reviewer has accepted the job but is taking a month to do it maybe it's time to ask for someone else to be assigned. By this point CM must be in the 99.9 percentile. As the signing procedure is intended to weed out malware, this is reflecting poorly on CM's reputation.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.5.1-signed). 

Rebuttle

Thank you for pointing out the blog post and I plan to contact Jorge about this. As far as the review process, I submit the update for review and am placed in the queue. All I can view is in my position in the queue, and this is what I have reported in my responses to inquiries. As of this time, Cookie Monster is number 47 of 223, from the information available to me.

Moreover, as far as I know, a validation reviewer has not been assigned to Cookie Monster. I am not made aware of who the reviewer is until I receive the results of the review.

Trying to equate this situation with CM quality and reputation is completely unfounded and without merit,

Again, I will inquire about the situation.

Useful addon, Firefox updates may cause bugs sometimes Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Cookie Monster is a useful addon that I have been using for several years.
You can choose which domains allow cookies, 2nd level domain cookies and third party cookies.
There was a bug with Firefox 37, where the "View cookies" menu entry was not working but it has been fixed.
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/cookie-monster/reviews/692266/
Now there is problem with Firefox 42+ that several people have shared here. I also shared it on twitter https://twitter.com/baptx/status/678221772026740737
The 1st level domain can't be allowed for HTTPS websites.
If you use Gmail, you will see errors and Flickr is not usable at all unless you manually add https://flickr.com in Firefox cookies exceptions (www.flickr.com is used for browsing the site but 1st level domain flickr.com uses cookies too).
I heard of a beta version of Cookie Monster, I am waiting for the update.

Edit: If I remember correctly, before Firefox 42, I also didn't have to allow each 2nd level domain of a website.
I have unchecked the menu entry "Options" -> "Use 2nd level domain names" and now I can directly allow the domain (1st level or 2nd level depending on the website) without going to the menu entry "Set cookies access".
But if I am redirected to another 2nd level domain, cookies will not be enabled by default. Can someone confirm that before Firefox 42, if we allowed the 1st level domain, we didn't have to allow 2nd level domains because they where automatically allowed?

Any ETA on FF42 compatibility? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks for making Cookie Monster! I've loved it for a long time...and I've been frustrated that it's stopped working with new web sites for the last month because of FF42. How's the beta test for the new version going? Any idea when you'll be ready to push it out for everyone? Thanks in advance!

Update on CM Status with FF 42 (and Thanks for Review)

The beta testing has gone well and the update has been submitted to the AMO for almost a week now; Cookie Monster is currently in queue position #109.

Thanks so much for the review.
