- by ak2766, a year agoRated 2 out of 5Unfortunately, I was looking for something that will save cookies in the Netscape format - this one doesn't. Or maybe it think it does (I saw mention of Netscape in the change log), but other tools such as youtube-dl do not recognize the cookies.txt file saved by this extension.
- by Firefox user 14528868, 2 years agoRated 2 out of 5I cannot select certain cookies to delete after searching. I have to delete them one by one from each domain, or all of the cookies that appear in the search results.
Cookie Manager from Rob W is still way better than this one. Firefox should be recommending the cookie manager from ROB W, and work on developing that one instead.
Developer responseposted 2 years agoIn fact if you right click on the displayed domain, after doing 1 search, then by clicking on "delete" on the context menu, you will erase the cookies leaving those not concerned by your search.
No software is ever 100% complete; it is a continuous work for which many people are involved: not only to write code, but also to raise bugs and submit improvements ...
- by Rulatir, 2 years agoRated 2 out of 5Initially promissing but just flat out stops working after a while. I add a cookie correctly for the domain (both dotted and not dotted, tried both ways), enter name and value, enter path '/', check the session checkbox. I expect the cookie to be sent to the domain with requests. It doesn't get sent. After a while it disappears, i.e. the search can no longer find it.
Promising but broken.
EDIT to reply to the add-on's author's response:
I know when cookies can be refreshed. The site in question is one I am developing, and the cookie is neither interacted with on the client side, nor ever set by the server; it's just a flag to enable certain debugging functionality and it used to be a GET param but we decided to switch to a cookie and use an add-on like yours to set it whenever we need.
Unfortunately I don't have time to debug your add-on, I simply need one that JustWorks™, and in fact I found one.
Developer responseposted 2 years agoHi your feedback is interesting;
Nevertheless, I use this addon frequently and to my knowledge the use case you mention is functional...
However, no project is immune to a bug and you should create an issue on the project submission so that we can better understand what you are trying to do. This platform is dedicated to managing bug reports and improvement proposals while addons-mozilla.org is dedicated notations.
If you put content in the cookie that the server does not recognize as valid or that does not match the content of other cookies on the same site, or if you put information from an expired session on the server side (you can't really know that), the server may decide at any time to delete or modify your cookie.
This is totally independent of browser configuration or addon behavior.
Have you tried to visualize the status of your cookie via the Firefox development tools Ctrl+Shift+K, "Storage" tab?
You will find more information on these sites:
"This is entirely up to the user agent, i.e. the user's browser, but usually, that will indeed be when the browser is closed"
"Cookies that 'expire at end of the session' expire unpredictably from the user's perspective!"
"If there is no expiry set on the cookie, then it is a session cookie and will live as long as the browser is open, and the sessionid is valid. If the server expires the authenticated sessions periodically, then the cookie will no longer be attached to a session on the server and will therefore be essentially null."
EDIT to reply to the Rulatir's response:
Have you thought about clicking on the button "Save the current cookie" to finalize the creation of your new cookie? I only see this explanation.
I'm just asking for a full bug report describing the situation. As it stands I can only say that this addon works because I can not reproduce your approach on various sites I tested: The addon uses the Mozilla's APIs to create the cookies and the cookie is actually created in the database AND sent by GET requests with the other cookies.
- by Firefox user 14021322, 2 years agoRated 2 out of 5I really want to like this add-on because the concept is great and the interface is good; however, there is a huge flaw. I will delete a cookie from a given website like Youtube using this Cookie Quick Manager but when I go into my Preferences>Privacy Security>Manage Data and open the folder, THE COOKIES ARE STILL THERE :(
I generally love Firefox but I am furious how they changed the cookies. They used to be so easy to delete but now you have to jump through a lot of excessive hoops to delete your cookies. This is a nefarious attempt to favor tracking your behavior and is total garbage. I was hoping this add-on would liberate me from the cookie fiasco created by Firefox but I don't think it works for the aforementioned reason.
