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

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.

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.

Problems with https requests in FF42 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I also want to report problems with FF42. It only occurs with https. If cookies are allowed for e.g. 2nd level domain example.com and page is from www.example.com, default authorization (deny) overrides 2nd level authorization. So I explicitly have to allow cookies for subdomain www.example.com. For http requests 2nd level domain authorization is also used for subdomains, which is the expected behavior.

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

The update for Cookie Monster is still being beta tested, and should address the issues you are seeing with HTTPS requests.

Thank you so much for the review; I really appreciate it! If you would like to help test or just preview the beta, just let me know.

trboytr Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I too am having the same problems since FF 42. CM just won't change permissions like it used to and so I now constantly need to go in and manually delete cookies and go into FF's preferences to change permissions. And of course I have Cookie Monster installed so as to not have to do this. :)
Here's hoping for a fix!

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

Yes, there are some issues with CM and FF 42, but I have a proposed fix and am currently having some CM users help me with a beta test. Hopefully very soon I will be submitting this update to the AMO.

Thank you for the review; I really appreciate! If you would like to help test, please let me know.

Incompatibility with new Firefox 42 cookie permission/exception system. Rated 3 out of 5 stars

since i updated firefox to version 42 there are some problems with this addon.
i read that with ff 42 mozilla uses a new permission and exception system for the cookies.
if i allow cookies temporary (by site) on some sites and then delete all cookies automatically it stays permanently on allowed and i have to click on standardauthorization (which in my case is "denied").
on other sites it is not enough to temporary allow the cookies by domain, i also have to allow them by site to work.
which was not necessary on previous ff versions.

hopefully there will be a fix update for ff 42 incompatibility

Always worked well, but has left Pale Moon users behind. Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Latest version can still be forced to install on Pale Moon, but 1.1.0.1 is the last version that allows you to view cookies.
Would be nice if support was provided for PM. It's probably the most popular fork of FF.

Edit: Looks like the author has asked about details for PM... but his email seems impossible to come by (not on Addon page as he claims). Dinged a star for nice try.

Signature missing? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

needs parse error fixing and cookie protection Rated 3 out of 5 stars

i wouldn't say it is the best, but its pretty good but certanly not perfect recently started getting some strange parse error when trying to "view cookies" so those little extra helpful menu enties no longer work on my palemoon browser. as for my firefox browser, only thing really missing is cookie protection, a whitelist of some well thought out kind where you can clear you browser without deleting those protected or whitelisted cookies that you want, also need to consider some sites or domains you might need to keep a select few of the cookies on that site and not all, so whitelisting by domain isnt always the most user friendly. if and when this addon includes cookie protection i will then install it to my firefox, until then it remains on palemoon only.

3rd Party Cookies by Specific Site, TOTAL CONTROL! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

CM is the best Cookie manager BY FAR. It has features no other mgr has, like allowing 3rd party cookies to be set for specific sites only. A godsave for the annoying but necessary odd-site that requires 3rd party cookies to login. Cookie Monster is THE BEST!

Excellent companion to use side-by-side with NoScript :) Rated 3 out of 5 stars

If you could also control which cookies of a domain you want to allow/deny that would make it perfect and get 5 stars...

Lowering 1 star because it doesn't seem to handle frames, i'm unable to control cookies for the documents inside a frame on a page...

Google cookies are not removed. Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I am just a lay person when it comes to computer technical issues. However I’ve noticed that Google, in particular, is very aggressive when it comes to installing cookies when websites are visited. This cookie handler apparently is unable to block Google cookies, which are listed as PREF cookies. Apparently the programming talent at Google trumps what developers of cookie handler apps can provide.

In the past when visiting websites hundreds of different cookies were listed. Then for a short period no cookies were installed. Now again Google cookies are showing up to the exclusion of what had been there previously. This indicates to me that Google took over ALL (or nearly all) of the cookie market. One other thing of note recently, since Google is the go to source for those wanting their websites to place cookies on users computers, is that there is a significant lag before the cookies are placed on a user’s computer. This appears to indicate that Google, by itself, does not have the resources to place cookies on a visitors computer almost immediately, which wasn’t the case when there were many other different cookies from other providers that got placed on the user’s computer soon after visiting a website requiring them.

I may remove this app if there is a better one that can address the problem of inability to remove Google cookies, or wait for an update to this Add-On that can remove Google cookies.
