Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Switched to this extension from CookieSafe after I installed Firefox Beta 6, but it doesn't seem to do anything even though it's marked as compatible. Three stars because of the many recommendations I got, but I would like a working product if it's labeled so on the page.

EDIT: Works, actually. I removed a conflicting extension. Still only 3 stars though, because the menu is very cluttered and (of much less importance) the graphics need work. I'd suggest utilizing both a left click and right click menu, like Cookie Safe did. Left click would have basic cookie reject/allow choices, while right click would have the options/view cookies/revoke all temporarily allow. The "current cookie permissions" is useless; it replicates what the tooltip shows with a menu, which could make users think it's a clickable option. Also, I'm not sure it's necessary to show the cookie permission choices at the bottom of the menupopup and basically clone them in "cookie access (site/domain level)." This could probably go in the previously suggested right click menu, as it is the secondary choice, and will not be used often.

I actually find this extension's functionality to be essential to my browsing and I'm very happy to have found it, but I think there is room for improvement. I hope this helps make Cookie Monster better in some way! Thanks for coding and sharing.

Kills other necessary functions Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Great program and very easy to use, far better than the half dozen others I tried.
The problem is, I can no longer right click and block images and firefox no longer offers to save log in information. I went through the menus, absolutely nothing has changed.

With the loss of image blocking and log in saving, it's one heck of a compromise for surfing privacy!
Please fix this because I have finally decided to just uninstall it.

There is a great and unique option in Cookie Monster called "Override Global Cookie Permissions". Use it if you have problems in some sites when you set "block all cookies" and set the site for "accept session cookie".

It's a big asset compared to CSLite and others.

It's great to use. For everyone switching from CS Lite: Cookie permissions set in CS Lite are kept in Cookie Monster.
Unfortunately it is not compatible with Firefox 4 Beta5 and above, yet.

Cookie-Steuerung per Seite gefällt mir
sehr gut, ich vermisse, die selektiven
Optionen auch global setzen zu können, da dies in ff 3.6.8 nicht möglich ist.

Great Add-on. Just one thing is missing. Support for SeaMonkey 2.x.

Yay, it works with firefox 4.0b2. I just switched to this since "Cookie Safe" stopped working after I upgraded to 4.0b2.

Good addon, for those that want to control all the cookies being laid around. I agree with the need for a taskbar icon as I've hidden the status bar. I know the context menu gives the options, but would prefer an icon on the taskbar.
thank you for the addon.

Cookie Monster has very promising functionalities, however, juggling the option "Use 2nd Level Domain Names" is really annoying. Some sites like www.deviantart.com for example, when you browse the site, it switches back and forth to using full domain name and base domain name - so I always get logged out on some parts of the site. Why not just use one preference for both full domain name and base domain name?

Great addon; however, could you please make the context menu appear to the side instead of over the top.
It gets really annoying if I'm trying to select another menu, in the context menu, and I accidentally hover over cookiemonster which means I have to click back out of the menu and reclick in the hopes I don't hover over it again.

Thanks.

Great, but desperately needs a toolbar icon for those of us who have hidden the FF status bar.

Simple, Functional Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It does what you need in blocking cookies on pages that you have visited.

I would have rated 5 stars if there were a clear way to add exclusions *before* visiting a site. Perhaps it is there, but i have not yet seen it.

Neat Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Nice little addon, it would be nice to have a quick option to set cookies of selected sites (at the personal users discretion) to never expire (simply by modding the expiry date to something ridiculous like year 2100) I'm not sure if it would work but if it could it would be great and eliminate the need for addons such as add & edit cookies for many.

Très utile! Cet addon permet de choisir quel Cookie l'on souhaite conserver; de manière temporaire ou bien définitive : excellent... Bravo au développeur!

Temp permission problem. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

- Temporary Permission for sites to leave cookies (permission removed and cookies deleted for site with temporary permission upon restart of Firefox)
Doesn't always work, a lot of times, I revisit a website where as I temporary allow cookies, shutdown firefox start it backup, revisit that website temporary permissions are stuck until I select, default action rejected. and revoke temp permissions seems to be broken because I tried that, I still have to select defaults action rejected. I use no-script and ad-block plus, could these be interacting with Cookie Monster?

A great idea (imho): Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Is there a way to allow all sites temporarily? I see this is possible for 3rth party cookies, but not for site level cookies.
This way it will not break any site because all cookies are allowed, but long-term tracking is not possible because the cookies are only temporary. And it's easy to maintain because you only have to take action (allow) for the sites you really want cookies from.

B.t.w. You can use the "menu editor" addon to edit the context menu. It works for any type of context so also Cookie Monster's context.

Good but ... Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I agree with you: a option to enable/disable the context menu is highly appreciated.

To disable it (for now) add the following to your userChrome.css:

#cookiemonster-context { display:none !important; }

I concur with Temp Temp... the context was not needed (at least by me) and interferes with other items that I'm used to.

Or at least provide a master options to "not" display those items... Other than that NEW enhancement this extensions is very good!
